It was my birthday Sunday at the Brittany holiday cottage with private pool and as a treat I decided to venture some where new.
I have been too Quimper before and pictures of that beautiful city can be found within the gallery of the holiday cottage web site, but just 10 minutes away is Benodet. France magazine listed its top 20 beaches throughout France a few years back and Benodet was one of them as was Carnac.
The weather for September has been bright and sunny as per normal so a trip down the coast was fantastic, as soon as I arrived I could understand why it made the top 20. It looked very clean, the sea safe and a great spot to walk along the coast.
Being at the end of the holiday season the beach was empty apart from several fisherman but along the path way we passed loads of people enjoying the Sunday afternoon enjoying the coast and sea air.
We had lunch in the restaurant beside the main beach which I would recommend for every one to try.
Its an additional great recommendation to make for future guest staying at La Forge for a great day out, hitting the beach as well as Quimper.
