Destination Brest

Both a maritime and historic centre, Brest is festive, open-spirited, and profoundly marked by its sea-faring history and port city culture. Access is easy from our 4-star hotel (30 minutes). Brest's famous harbour sound encompasses 180 km2 of navigable water, dotted with islets that shelter rich collections of flora and fauna, particularly certain rare species of bird. Océanopolis, its famous aquatic park, combines an aquarium, a leisure park, a zoo and an ocean discovery centre that is unique in Europe, inviting you to set sail into polar, tropical and temperate environments.

The town centre is perfect for strolling down animated shopping streets. The Explorers' Garden offers a ravishing exotic promenade, and the nearby Pont del la Recouvrance, a vertical-lift bridge, is an impressive sight. Dominating the harbour, the medieval castle is one of the oldest buildings in the city, and exhibits numerous collections within the National Maritime Museum. Brest is also a dynamic city, building a reputation with its main festivals: Astropolis, "les Jeudis du Port" (Port Thursdays) and international maritime events.

Pointe Saint-Mathieu is a fabled landscape for seafarers. From its cliffs arise an emblematic lighthouse and an ancient abbey, both accessed by many walking paths.

Le Conquet & Plougonvelin
