Farewell Brittany

Well folks we’ve come to the end of the whirlwind stomp through the beautiful Brittany.


One of the final stops is Audierne, a charming Breton harbour town with bustling quays and historic narrow streets.

We’re law abiding folks – if the sign says wait here, then wait we will!


This colourful restaurant display catches my eye with its vivid flags and colourful flowers.


I particularly enjoy this vivid blue bike draped in colourful flowers.

Audierne has some detailed street art that is just begging to be snapped . . .

A bustling little street market lures us in with colourful postcards, squashes and other produce.

Naturally the man gravitates towards the patisserie and coffee stalls . . .

There’splenty of traditional architecture to be found from delightful wooden shutters to a floral cornucopia.

Then it’s onto the next town as our holiday clock counts down its final hours.


We make a brief stop at the picturesque village of Le Faou is towards the western end of Brittany.

It is listed among the most beautiful villages in France and falls within the boundaries of the Armorique Regional Natural Parc.

Although Le Faou is small the buildings in the centre are very interesting, with many of them built in stone and others half-timbered with their wooden facades covered in vertically placed slates.

Houses where the upper stories protrude over the ground floor in this way are called ‘maisons à encorbellement’ and can be seen in many places in France with intact medieval centres.


In Le Faou most of these ‘maisons en pan de bois’ houses are grouped together along the main street in the village centre and date from the late 16th and early 17th centuries, although the method of construction was banned in 1561 because of the fire risk.

Our final stop is the beach – no pictures of that so instead enjoy this snap of a colourful concrete shed as the final image of the trip!


Well that’s it for Brittany everyone. I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Now it’s onto possibly THE MOST EXCITING TRIP EVER!!!!!!!!!! . . . ..  . .
