Saint Hernin Property Listings and Info

For buying and selling property in Saint Hernin

Saint Hernin - a tranquil hamlet

The tiny hamlet of Saint Hernin is a perfect bolthole from the stresses and strains of modern life in the UK. It lies in an utterly unspoilt part of Finistère, Brittany's most westerly department, amid beautiful countryside and within an hour or less of the glorious Breton coast.

Sights and monuments

Saint Hernin has a gorgeous little church, listed for its beauty and which adds a real charm to the village. It dates back to the 17th and 18th centuries, and has an ossuary and a lovely stone statue of the Virgin Mary. Other sights include a 17th century chapel and the remains of two chateaux. Perhaps not qualifying as a sight or monument, but nevertheless an interesting attribute worth a mention here are the natural springs that offer the chance to paddle, soak tired feet and just to enjoy.

Shops and services available

A hamlet with less than 800 inhabitants is unlikely to possess nightclubs, casinos and supermarkets, and this is certainly the case with Saint Hernin. If that is what you are looking for, head for the coastal resorts and large towns, where you will find them in abundance.
