Close to the coast, Trégunc is a dynamic small town with numerous local shops and mid-sized supermarkets. Pleasingly situated between Pont-Aven and Concarneau, the commune of Trégunc possesses 23km of coastline, fringed with tranquil beaches of fine sand, rocky headlands, little inlets and a charming fishing port and marina at the Pointe de Trévignon. The lovely beaches here are backed by dunes, and the coastal lagoons beyond are home to a rich flora and fauna; the whole area of 300 hectares has protected status.

To learn more about this site, visit the ‘Maison du Littoral’, a lovely stone and glass building. The port of Trévignon also has a lifeboat station, which operates between the Glénan isles and Fouesnant, a beautiful coastline which can be admired in all directions from the headland. An island fort, a private property, lends extra character to this place and you can also buy fresh fish and shellfish at the docks when the fishermen return to port in the afternoon.

Other little ports and beaches to visit include Pors Breign and Pouldohan. The Trégunc commune is also blessed with attractive countryside and many leisure activities. You can visit the 16th century chapels of Saint Philibert and Kerven, this latter a real gem nestled amongst trees, with numerous statues and a remarkable fountain. Also many megalithic monuments, dolmens and menhirs, notably the Kérangallou standing stone, 9.8m in height.

But the stand-out feature of the Trégunc area, in common with neighbouring Névez but otherwise unique in Brittany, is the use of large upright stones (called ‘mein zao’ in Breton) in the construction of houses and walls. These vertical blocks of granite are usually topped with thatch, and date from the 18th and early 19th century.
