Spézet - small but lively

The little town of Spézet lies in the wonderful countryside of the Finistère department of north-west Brittany. The town is located a short way inland, which keeps property prices reasonable yet still offers excellent access to the wild and glorious coastline of Finistère. It is also accessible from the UK, with Brittany's airports and ferry ports within easy reach. Spézet manages to be unspoiled and traditional in outlook while having a warm and lively heart, and pays more than lip service to Breton culture and traditions.

True colours

Part of the charm of Spézet lies in its colourful aspect. Many of the houses in the town are washed in pretty colours, and have become an attraction in themselves. There are a good number of old and interesting features in the town as well as these houses, with an old lavoir (wash house), a traditional fountain and excellent botanical gardens, where the main interest is in conifers, of which there are many varieties to see here. The "Jardin Botannique des Montagnes Noirs", as the gardens are called, are open to the public for a small admission fee.

Shops and services

Many small towns and villages in rural France offer few or no shops and other services, but Spézet is a notable exception, having not only shops, but also being equipped with all the service industries such as schools, medical care and other necessities. Spézet allows you to find a peaceful retreat in a real living town, without the need to jump in the car and drive for miles every time you need some groceries.

Dining out and other social pleasures

Dining out is always a pleasure in France, and nowhere more so than in Brittany, where you are never far from the sea and all its bounty. Despite its relatively small size, Spézet has a number of good restaurants, and there are also cafés and bars.

Culture and traditions

Finistère is a department that has a very strong sense of its Breton heritage and culture, and Spézet is a good example of this. Spézet hosts numerous festivals and events dedicated to the local history and culture, and is particularly proud of its musical traditions. If you want to discover and perhaps partake in the music of old Finistère, Spézet is certainly the place for you.

Sports and leisure

The town has some sporting associations where you can join or watch the local teams play football and other sports, and locally there are a wealth of activities in which you can partake. You don't have to travel far to find golf, horse-riding, sailing, swimming, fishing, walking and cycle hire, and, of course, the celebrated beauty of the Finistère coast is just a short drive away.
