Berrien - attractive and tranquil

Berrien is an attractive and tranquil Breton village which lies in the Finistère department of Brittany. It glories in a delightfully picturesque setting, in the Amorique National Park, and is within easy reach of the fabulous Finistère coast for seaside days out. Berrien isn't a large place, but there is a strong sense of community and there are various events that take place during the year for the residents to enjoy.

Amenities on offer in the village

Berrien is typically Breton in style and appearance, with pretty, stone houses, slate roofed and shuttered. The village is fortunate in having a couple of Bar/Tabacs, where you can enjoy a drink or a coffee, and a general store that sells freshly baked bread and cakes in addition to everyday items such as foodstuffs and other household requirements. Of course, you will need access to larger shops and supermarkets from time to time, and these can be found just down the road in Huelgoat, but it's always good to know that you can get essential items without having to leave the village. The village itself doesn't have a restaurant as such, but a pizza van visits once or twice a week, so the occasional "take away" treat is no problem!

L'Autre Rive

On the edge of the village, hidden in the woods, is the fabulous Internet café of L'Autre Rive. Known locally as "the café in the woods", this is a social hub, offering a café service with delicious food and drink and a bar as well where you can enjoy catching up on all the news as well as accessing the internet.

A true paradise on the doorstep

Finistère is the wild, western tip of Brittany, a land whose being throughout history has been bound with the sea. Its coast has a rugged beauty and its countryside is totally unspoilt, offering walkers and nature lovers a true paradise. The coast is easily accessed from Berrien, being just a short drive away.

Explore the rock formations at Huelgoat

The lovely town of Huelgoat is just down the road too, offering a good collection of shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment. Huelgoat is also noted for its fascinating rock formations, connections with King Arthur and the Arthurian legends and the myths and legends that abound in Finistère.

Sports and leisure activities on offer

Sporting and leisure possibilities from a base in Berrien include walking, horse-riding, fishing, swimming, cycling and golf.
