Kerbeleg - La Longère

Suggested route for your day around Kerbeleg…

Here are some direct links to guide you to some beautiful places to discover around Kerbeleg, in the direction of Concarneau, but by the side roads:


A riverside walk and once a place of inspiration for painters, this timeless site reveals a magnificent, peaceful and poetic path. Leave your car at the port to visit the Pont-Aven Museum but above all to stroll along the art galleries and along the river Aven on the “promenade du bois d’amour”.

Chapel of Trémalo

Go back up the hill by car or on foot along the path to discover its unusual architecture, vaulted ceiling in ‘inverted hull’, with sculpted beams as well as the mini exhibition of reproductions “Gauguin or the wounded ferryman“. It is open to the public every day from 10am to 5pm from October to June and from 10am to 6pm from July to September.

Le Hénan tidal mill

Discover the renovated mechanisms of this exceptional 15th century mill powered by the ebb and flow of the tides up the Aven. This historic monument is built of ashlar and its four-sided roof indicates an old thatched one.

Rocks and bread oven of Kermeun

They are on private property, so park and keep a low profile so as not to disturb the residents. This is not a real tourist spot but a real geological curiosity. The oven, which dates from the 15th century, reveals itself as a treasure hidden in the middle of enormous granite chaos.

The thatched cottages of Kerascoet

Charming little village not to be missed, see some of the thatched cottages whose walls (lean-to) are built from a single block of vertical “standing stones”. A real journey back in time to discover these granite cottages and thatched roofs.

Pointe de Trévignon

Follow the coast westwards to the small port and the (neo-classical) castle of Trévignon to see the Glénans archipelago. If you feel like it, this is the ideal starting point for a 6km walk along the dunes where you will come across ponds and bird sanctuaries of all species.

Glénans Archipelago from the sky

It is of course much more impressive to see on the spot by boat or from the sky with its turquoise blue bottom, this archipelago of 7 islands hides an inland sea with crystal clear waters and white sandy beaches, a heavenly landscape.

Oyster beds in Bélon

If you are passing through the Bélon area to the east, and are an oyster lover, we recommend a short walk to whet your appetite from the Château du Bélon, where you can park your car and drive along the river to the sea to discover a magnificent view, and then on the way back to the village, have an open-air tasting. These oyster farms have been producing the famous flat oysters for a long time, as well as the hollow oysters since 1864.

Port of Doëlan

Discover this small picturesque “postcard” port typical of the region. You can contemplate the magnificent view from one of the restaurant terraces. This little maritime jewel is set between two valleys and dotted with orchards. The fishing boats at anchor, the thatched cottages overlooking the shores and above all its magnificent lighthouses.
