Paimpol-Goëlo, looking seawards

Port Paimpol

Overlooking the sea at Plouézec, the Britanny bocage stretches off in all directions.

Paimpol-Goëlo, a wonderful coastline

Archipel Bréhat

An amazingly rich environment. The banks of the Trieux estuary are fantastically elaborate, with inlets, creeks, promontories and above all a great many small islands around Ploubazlanec. A million places to discover around Paimpol and Plourivo... and at the end of the estuary, the sea beckons.

Paimpol-Goëlo, hiker's heaven!

Château Hôtel Golf Boisgelin Paimpol

The main tourist activity around Paimpol is concentrated at the coast, but back in the countryside is a paradise of gently undulating farmland with woodlands, the windmills of Plourivo, Yvias and Lanleff, the calm of the little-known Correc valley near Kerfot and many more delights to discover.

In villages such as Pléhédel and Lanloup, the many small watercourses were once used to power flax mills - the economy of a golden age to which the beautiful church of Lanloup  bears witness.
