At the heart of the ancient city…
Quimper, the ancient capital of Cornwall where architecture with half-timbered houses and the beautiful banks of the Odet give a special touch to the city.
Located at the bottom of an estuary of 20 km, Quimper is crossed by "the most beautiful river in France", the Odet.
This coastal river has its source in the heart of the Black Mountains and throws into the Atlantic, lined with castles, mansions, beautiful forests and changing landscapes.
With is two arrows up in the sky of Brittany, St. Corentin Cathedral is one of the oldest in the region.
Enjoy your stay in Quimper to appreciate what is still today the reputation of the city: earthenware.
For over 300 years, Quimper perpetuates this great craft tradition "the hand-painted."
