Mornings are a pleasure here – gather around the big wooden table with fellow guests and plan your day over homemade crêpes, cheese, charcuterie and an endless supply of coffee.
Explore Paimpol, watch bobbing fishing boats, get lost in the maze of streets and sample the local delicacy of Coco de Paimpol. After hunger has been satisfied head to Guilben and walk through the woods of Abbey de Beauport – the views out to sea are magnificent.
The seafood here is second to none. Restaurants are a ten-minute drive – ask Isabelle which ones promise perfect oysters and cracking wine lists. An evening in promises a gastronomical delight too – book ahead for one of Isabelle’s sumptuous cook-ups. Expect local lobster, lamb, oysters and seasonal vegetables. After a day immersing yourself in French culture the comfortable bedrooms are all you need.
