Welcome in Brittany

Breton atmosphere

Established in the 5th and 6th centuries, Pléneuf (Plou Nevez in Breton) has travelled through the ages while retaining a distinctly Breton feel. The typical architecture of the stone houses hints at a past that revolved around the land. Local life centres around the inevitable church and shops. There’s a market on Tuesday mornings all year round. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet the local producers and pick up some of their culinary tips. Our favourites are the seasonal, organic strawberries from the Bio du Pré farm, Tomme au Sarrasin cheese (with toasted buckwheat) from the Vaumadeuc farm, and the buttery Kouign Amann and Far Breton cakes from the Jacquin bakery.

Open on your eyes

The Church of St. Peter and St. Paul (1889) watches over the resort like a lighthouse with its looming spire. As you stand in front of it, lift your gaze to admire the neo-Classical and neo-Gothic architectural details. Once you’re through the bell-tower porch, more treasures are revealed, such as the golden fresco and mosaic and the angel musician.



Trainers on

for a walk across town

Start from the church and take a little loop via La Motte Meurdel historic site. From there, rejoin Rue Georges Clemenceau. Our first stop is at the foot of the Manoir Rosmeur, a building that currently houses the town hall. Leaving the gardens, you’ll start to catch a glimpse of the sea. The path down to Val-André is dotted with beautiful houses. As you walk down, take note of numbers: 41, 43, 46, 55, 58, 75, 77, 72, 83, 104, 102, 106 and 108. Cross the Parc de l’Amirauté gardens and then join the sea wall promenade, with or without your glad rags!


On your bike for a ride along the water’s edge

for a ride along the water’s edge

Starting from Boulevard Kennedy, hop on your bike and take the Vélomaritime cycle route. After the burn, enjoy the descent! When you pass the Minihy campsite, signal left for the first little climb. At the top, turn right and ride back down to La Flora. This pretty little road is lined with trees, so you’ll know you’re in the Breton bocage landscape. Beyond the 19th century old bridge in La Vallée, there’s a 13% climb to warm up your leg muscles. Take an electric bike for an easier ride! At the top of the hill, you’ll be able to see the Ville Nihon manor house. You’ll gradually move away from the bocage landscape. At Cargré, get off your bike and follow a path leading to a wash house – a well-kept secret. Rejoin the Vélomaritime route here, which follows the path of the old railway. After Ville Pierre, your backdrop will change to a sea view. The downward stretch to Ville Berneuf feels great. There are a number of pretty hamlets in the area. Just a few metres off the route, you can make a short detour to check out the Ville Berneuf dunes, or alternatively just make your way back to the starting point, stopping off at the Saint-Mathurin chapel. When you arrive, enjoy a nice snack break!

at the ready for a walk along the Les Vallées route

Starting from Boulevard Kennedy, the Ville-Berneuf circuit varies between agricultural land, undergrowth and coastline. This is a loop that can be done all year round, even in winter! While enjoying the calm of the countryside to the sound of the birds, this 8 km loop allows you to follow the vast wild beaches of Ville-Berneuf, Nantois and the Valleys. On the coast, two options depending on the tides: walk on the sand or follow the GR 34 for the sporty side. The return is peaceful via Chemin du Vauclair.


On a Saturday afternoon in January, on a beautiful sunny day, I decided to put on my hiking boots and get my backpack ready with a nice full water bottle, a cap and sunglasses, plus a little energy bar. The route started in the woods, which was very pleasant, but at no point could I see the sea, so when I arrived at Ville Berneuf, I was like ‘Wow!’  I’d actually wanted to take the GR34 (Brittany coastal path), which is more challenging with some nice uphill and downhill sections. But by checking tide times and movements, you can walk along the sand to reach Les Vallées beach, which is much simpler. Along the way, I particular enjoyed the view of the Verdelet islet around Nantois before returning on the Vauclair path. I loved this little loop as it’s much quieter than other places.
