Fouesnant is a pretty little Breton town located in south Finistère, by the sea. Built overlooking the bay, it boasts splendid panoramic views.
Located in the heart of La Côte Cornouaillaise, near Concarneau, Fouesnant is sometimes known as the Breton Riviera. Exceptional Natural Beauty Beyond its coastline and beaches, Fouesnant also boasts many legendary islands and islets: the Glénan archipelago. Part of Fousenant itself, these islands are located 15 km from its shores. Fouesnant's 17km long coastline offers many lovely walks between the creeks and rocks with no less than 18 different hiking trails. You can also visit the ponds and woods of Penfoulic, a site protected by the Conservatoire du Littoral. The Polder du Mousterlin, the pierced rock between Cape Coz and the beautiful sandy beach of Beg Meil, is also worth a visit. Fouesnant also offers many other magnificent places to discover... Gastronomy and Heritage During your holiday in Fouesnant, don't forget to sample some Breton specialities: cider, fish or fresh shellfish, or, of course, the famous local pancakes, which you can taste in one of the excellent local restaurants or crêperies. The typical Breton chapels and the town's Calvary monument are also worth a visit.
If you are in a travelling mood, why not take a detour to the neighbouring town of the 'Ville close' and stay in a hotel with a view in Concarneau.
