Côte de Granit Rose
Paimpol, the ideal holiday destination!
Where the land comes down to meet the sea, the true soul of Brittany can be found here in Paimpol. Throughout the summer, there’s nothing better than to simply wander through the streets of this attractive medieval town, from the Place du Martray to the Latin Quarter. And the ideal moment to really make the most of it? Tuesday morning, it’s market day!
Not far from the superb Côte de Granit Rose, a gorgeous holiday rental awaits you on a 4 or 5 star campsite. Whether you are staying in a tent, campervan or the comfort of one of our fully-equipped mobile homes, everything is accessible and within easy reach! The sun is shining overhead? It’s time to hit the water park for hours of sliding, bathing and soaking up the sun. Love a good walk? Then you’ll certainly deserve a relaxing break in the wellness area after a long day hiking!
Visit Paimpol with the family
The Côtes-d’Armor are renowned for the wealth of family activities they offer, and the town of Paimpol is certainly no exception. All wannabe swimmers should head for the La Tossen beach, with its vast seawater swimming pool it’s perfect for bathing with all the family!
The sand and pebble shores of the nearby Ploubazlanec and Plouézec beaches also offer an attractive panorama looking out towards the Île de Bréhat. Who fancies a trip in a motor launch? Known as the island of flowers it is a true paradise for families: you can only explore on foot or by bike, the air is pure, the land flat and the scenery fit for a fairytale!
Visit Paimpol as a couple
Strolling on the quayside, through the town centre or along the “Customs Path”, Paimpol offers a multitude of treasures to discover together, just the two of you. In the old town, admire the homes built by the wealthy ship-owners of the past, alongside half-timbered houses dating back 500 years. Down by the port, take time out to sample all the rich local flavour, 100% Breton: oysters from Paimpol, “blue” lobster, scallops... Totally delicious!
During the afternoon, a gentle walk after lunch not only helps digestion but offers an ideal opportunity to explore the Beauport Abbey. Today, only ruins remain of what was once considered to be the most beautiful abbey in Brittany. A listed historical monument, its stonework blends perfectly into the natural landscape that has gradually re-established its rights!
