Lots of activities

Living nature to the full

Sensational or chill: something for everyone!

If you're a thrill-seeker, treat yourself to a dose of adrenalin as you become one with the elements: paragliding, surfing, kayaking and sand yachting are just some of the activities on offer in the Menez-Hom Atlantique area. Do you prefer more leisurely pursuits? Hiking, stand-up paddling, river fishing, boating on the Aulne or cycling along the Nantes-Brest canal should be just what you're looking for.

Sandcastle or surf?

The Menez-Hom Atlantique, as its name suggests, is also a seafront. Here, there's no risk of getting stuck on the sand: the beaches are immense! Are you more of a lazy type or a water sports enthusiast? The beaches of Pentrez, Pors ar Vag, Sainte-Anne-la-Palud and Kervel are sure to please...

The reign of green

The Aulne and the Canal de Nantes à Brest

On foot, by bike... or on the water!

Take the time to live, listen and observe nature... Enjoy your vacation in slow mode, far from the hustle and bustle of coastal resorts, by boat on the canal, on foot or by bike on the towpath, for the day or on a tour. The proximity of water is inevitably an invitation to slow down, feel and enjoy the moment.

Our little villages

Charm and tranquility

Lively towns all year round

The Menez-Hom Atlantique is made up of 17 coastal and rural communities with one thing in common: a preserved charm and authenticity, small villages that live year-round to the rhythm of markets, festivals and the daily lives of their inhabitants. It's all about meeting new people, exchanging ideas and sharing sincere experiences over a crêpe or a bowl of cider...

Heritage and local produce

Authenticity in the raw!

The Menez-Hom Atlantique also boasts a number of nuggets of religious heritage, such as thePleyben parish enclosure, as well as places to discover Breton culture and history, such as the rural school museum. Gourmets won't be outdone, either, with our gourmet gastronomy, based (essentially) on... butter! We invite you to discover two emblematic companies of our destination: the Chatillon chocolate factory in Pleyben and the Jain cookie factory in Plonévez-Porzay.
