Bénodet on the Odet river

The Odet

Bénodet on the Odet

Shadow cast by the Pont de Cornouaille bridge

 

A seaside resort of undisputed renown, Bénodet is situated between sea and estuary, and bewitches sailors and water sports enthusiasts alike. Once across the Cornouaille Bridge, marking the border between Fouesnant and Bigouden country, its castles come into view standing majestically on the banks of the Odet river. Bénodet offers a wide choice of restaurants, cafés and bars, boutique shops, and evening entertainments, notably the cinema and the casino. There is also the thalassotherapy spa centre and the marina.

Nearby lies Fouesnant, Beg-Meil, Cap-Coz and the beautiful beach at Mousterlin, offering 50km of walking paths, 17km of white sandy beaches, sunken footpaths, and numerous superb walks in the heart of nature. Also don’t miss an excursion out to the Glénan islands, an archipelago surrounding lagoon-like turquoise waters.

On the opposite side of the river and facing Bénodet, Sainte-Marine is a small well-known yachting marina, with beautiful fine sand beaches, as well as a charming little harbour with cafés, and restaurants and crêperies whose attractive terraces afford views over the Odet and the marina and out to the ocean.

In the vicinity, in Combrit, you can also visit the Museum of Cider and the botanical park of Cornouaille. Lying beside the Odet river, on the edge of Bigouden country, Combrit is a village offering all amenities, ideally located between Bénodet and Pont L'Abbé.
