The port of Le Pouldu, a must-visit during your holiday!
Lying at the mouth of the Laïta, the river that marks the boundary between the Finistère and the Morbihan, the port of Le Pouldu is one of the jewels of the Pays de Quimperlé. Gauguin, founder of the Pont-Aven school of artists, often came here to set up his easel and capture all its beauty: emerald water, wooded shores, ever-changing light... And now it’s your turn to fall under its enduring charm, during your camping break in southern Brittany!

Visit the port of Le Pouldu as a couple
If you prefer exploring the port of Le Pouldu without getting wet, why not head off along the GR34, the famous long-distance footpath that hugs the coast of Brittany from north to south. Let it guide you along the Laïta as you discover some of the river’s most unexpected treasures. In the Finistère, what better than a moment out of time amidst the ruins of the former Saint-Maurice abbey, originally built by the Cistercians and today nestling quietly between river and forest. The ideal spot for a romantic picnic.
Another possibility for a visit to soak up all the beauty of Le Pouldu and its setting: settle yourselves comfortably aboard for a guided cruise on the Laïta. Kick back and relax as you admire the untamed landscapes and discover the fascinating history hidden in its meanders.
