Clohars-Carnoët, the ideal holiday destination!
To the south of Quimperlé, nestling between Lorient and Concarneau, the pretty little town of Clohars-Carnoët is a veritable model of the traditional Breton village. Edged by beaches and cliffs bathed by the ocean, it is particularly well-known for the beauty of the harbours of Le Pouldu and Doëlan with their picture postcard scenery. Where better to sample freshly caught fish or shellfish, before an afternoon spent bathing or exploring.

On-site, relax in the covered and heated swimming pool or work off your pent-up energy with our activities for all the family: aquagym, fitness, dances, free entertainment for the kids... Everyone will find something they’ll love doing. Midday and evening, enjoy the on-site restaurant service to sample Brittany’s finest specialities.

Visit Clohars-Carnoët as a couple
When on holiday in Clohars-Carnoët, you’ll have all the time you could want to discover the 2 ports that have made it famous: that of Le Pouldu, to the east, and that of Doëlan, to the west. The first, lying at the mouth of the Laïta, is particularly famous for having welcomed the artist Gauguin to its beach bar, today recreated in a house in Le Pouldu that has in turn become a fascinating museum. Art-lovers will adore taking a trip back in time!
The port of Doëlan is also unbeatable for a romantic walk arm-in-arm. Nestling at the inland end of a ria, it perfectly embodies the beauty of Brittany’s landscapes: fishing boats, oyster beds, secret creeks, thatched stone cottages... Share a seafood platter before continuing your exploration of the most gorgeous beauty spots in the Finistère!
