Plonévez du Faou - a charming market town

The pretty market town of Plonévez du Faou is found in the centre of the Finistère department of Brittany in the delightful north-west corner of France. The countryside that surrounds the little town is utterly unspoiled and typically Breton, offering green fields and tranquil waterways, woodland and picturesque villages. Finsistère is the most reasonably priced of all the Breton departments too, so if you are bargain hunting this is a wonderful place to begin.

Tranquil and unspoiled with excellent amenities

There are many small towns and villages in rural Finsistère which do not offer even the most basic of shops and other amenities, but Plonévez du Faou is not one of these. Although the town is tranquil and unspoiled, there are excellent amenities with local shops, a small supermarket, a boulangerie, a library, post office, hairdressers, doctors, a dentist, schools, restaurants and bars. In short, pretty much all you need for a comfortable everyday life is on your doorstep. There are larger towns nearby, of course, should you need even more facilities, but Plonévez is great for those days when you don't want to get the car out.

Out and about

The department of Finsistère is the least busy and developed of the Breton region, especially inland, where even in the height of summer you can still escape the crowds and enjoy a true rural retreat. Here there are plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy the countryside and the fresh air, with a variety of sports on offer in the locality, including cycling, fishing, walking, tennis and horse-riding.

Visit the delightful Châteauneuf du Faou

There are many lovely towns and villages to discover, all within an easy drive of Plonévez du Faou. The neighbouring town of Châteauneuf du Faou on the Nantes Brest Canal is a delight, picturesque and authentic in every way, while the wonderful mediaeval town of Quimper is a must see.

Explore the wild and rugged coast

The coast is accessed in not much more than half an hour, and towns such as Douarnenez and Crozon are lively holiday bases in summer as well as being charming and traditional. The Finistère coast is spectacular, often wild and rugged with dramatic cliffs and excellent beaches
