Are you interested in this trip?

Welcome to this Breton island, a hidden gem in the heart of Morlaix Bay in Finistère. This island gem, with its iconic, long-inhabited lighthouse and exotic garden, offers a weekend getaway combining unspoilt nature and maritime charm. Spend a few days in the place of the lighthouse keeper (still in operation), explore the picturesque paths, marvel at the botanical diversity of the garden, and immerse yourself in island authenticity. Get ready for a spellbinding escape where the island reveals its natural and cultural treasures, capturing the timeless essence of Brittany. On this island, time passes differently. Here, it passes smoothly, following the tides. Admire the ever-changing view of islets appearing and disappearing, the Pen al Lann coastline, the color of the sky, the comings and goings of fishing boats, sailing school catamarans and sailboats. Always to the rhythm of the gulls’ cries. At low tide, observe the marine life, from anemones to shrimp fishing. In the evening, say goodbye to the sun setting in the distance and experience a real moment frozen in time and cut off from the real world.

Day 1: Discovering the island

In the morning, arrive in Carantec and take the boat to the island off the Breton coast. Enjoy the panoramic view as you cross.
Then explore the island on foot and take the time to discover the intimate little house that will welcome you for the next few nights. Visit the lighthouse and start soaking up the vast expanse of clear water that makes up the surrounding landscape.

Day 2: Outdoor activities and return

As soon as you wake up, enjoy the gentle rays of the sun streaming directly into the bathroom.
Then set off for a few hours’ adventure around an outdoor activity, such as fishing, kayaking around the island, or a boat trip.
Once back at the foot of the lighthouse, weather permitting, try a swim on your own private beach. In the late afternoon, return to Carantec by boat, taking in the sea views one last time. Dine in a local restaurant in Carantec to savour Breton cuisine before concluding your escapade.
