The Gite is the right place to rest. Utterly quiet, except for the seething of the sea when its swell whips the coast… Reading, music, DVD watching... Cosy reading place, specially dedicated to children on the footbridge, where you also find, for mentally young people -that is: everybody- 4 attractive wooden games: Japanese billiards, Dutch billiards, “table à élastique” (rubberband board), shuffle puck.
The peninsula is a world in itself, with a multitude of places to be discovered, hundreds of kilometers of paths. We won’t make a complete list for you: the tourist office will do it much better; here is a subjective list of walks you can take:
- Hiking along the crests of the oriental coast of “Cap de la Chèvre”: spectacular, steep, the GR path "hovers" between 50 and 100 meters above the waves, sheltered and often turquoise blue... To have a swim and discover the caves: kayaks are imperative.
- Contemplate the wide open sea to the west towards the immense beaches of La Palue or Lostmarch (Careful: no swimming), doubtless one of the most beautiful sensations of 'the farthest part of the world' you can feel! (wilder than the splendid- but quite busy- nearby “Pointes” of Dinan and Pen Hir.)
- Leisurely stroll under the high trees of Landévennec, -a peninsula in the peninsula- whose environment looks more like a river’s than the sea’s, and go back up the time by visiting the ruins of the abbey.
- Discover the top of Menez Hom, flickering with multicoloured paragliders slowly swirling over the magnificent beaches of Porzay.
- Plunge into the history of the peninsula in the North : change of atmospheres and colours, beautiful fortifications, towers, batteries and spectacular views to Brest and its harbour; at the headland of the Spaniards (la Pointe des Espagnols), the Brest coast is less than 2 km away (and more than one hour by the road) .
Several clubs in Telgruc and in Crozon-Morgat offer classic activities : sailing dinghy, windsurfing board, catamaran, surfing or more original :
- "Stand-up paddle" or the pleasure to row standing!
- Longe-côte (“Along-the-coast”) or that of fast walking in the water in groups, with the help of a paddle (very tonic !) .
- “Aquacorde” and “viacorda” if you feel like climbing the cliffs above the waves.
We recommend you Neiscaouen equestrian farm in Landévénec. Long rides in a very quiet nature, a very nice welcome.
In Lanvéoc, Anne and Louis welcome you to the "Halte Confitures" (Jam Stopping place) : up to 150 flavours !
In Argol, the house of the Brittany cider offers cider of course, but is also a museum and an inn.
In Tal-Ar-Groas, in the Maeligwen creperie : a warm welcome and good pancakes
There again, we won’t write a complete list of the “finistériennes” and Breton resources. Let us name, all the same, in a subjective way :
- Molène and well-known Ouessant, accessible in high season from Camaret harbour, 25 mn from Ty Koad by car.
- Brest and Océanopolis (50 mn by car) ; but why not sail from Le Fret, the peninsula harbour, 13 km from TY KOAD ?
- Quimper, its cathedral and its medieval city center; don’t miss Douarnenez and its harbours (among them the port-museum !) : the road which follows the coast is magnificent, overlooking the bay.
- the parochial enclosures and the center of Finistère, where you can admire the wild landscapes of Rock Trevezel.
- all the finistériennes coasts are beautiful ! We can’t mention everything... A few personal preferences :
Every year, in Crozon, at the very beginning of August , a tonic and multi-coloured stage, famous names, young talents, and a fantastic atmosphere...
