Our nearest Continental neighbours are just across the Channel in Brittany and our no-hassle weekend break is an ideal opportunity to get to know this pleasant part of France. We say no-hassle because there’s no queueing, no waiting around, your break starts as soon as you board the ship. Everything is taken care of, you just sit back, take in the local scene, relax and make the most of your brief holiday!
We plan a series of breaks which will take in some of the destinations in the Province which we have visited over the past 45 years.
The sailing programme is the same for each break unless otherwise indicated. Meet coach on Thursday for the 2045 sailing to Roscoff. On arrival, we proceed leisurely to the hotel where we stay for 2 nights, breakfast and dinner with wine included, all rooms have private facilities. During the Friday and Saturday we’ll be on excursion. On Sunday we drive to Roscoff and then catch the 1500(or 1600) sailing to Plymouth.
A free Reclining seat is provided on the overnight sailing but cabins are available at a supplement.
Our 3* Hotel de l’Océan overlooks a sandy beach on the Baie de la Forêt. There’s a covered, heated swimming pool and jacuzzi for your indulgence. All rooms have private facilities, breakfast and dinner with wine included. There is a lift.
Friday - We reach France at 0800 and when we are all aboard the coach we’ll set off westwards to the port and Naval Base of Brest to spend the morning. In the early afternoon we resume our drive to Concarneau where we check in to the hotel for two nights. The afternoon is free to take a stroll along the promenade or go into the town centre. Dinner at the hotel.
Saturday - After a buffet breakfast we drive to Quimper, the ancient capital of Cornouaille, where it is market day. Stroll amongst the stalls, have some refreshment and absorb the unique atmosphere. There’s plenty of time to visit the impressive cathedral or take a walk by the river.
We depart in the late morning and make a shopping / lunch halt at the Carrefour Hypermarket before we continue to the small resort of Bénodet. Dinner at the hotel
Sunday - We leave after breakfast and make our way back to Roscoff where we spend the remaining time. We catch the 1500 sailing to Plymouth.
