If you are travelling for business or pleasure please choose from our selection of self catering accommodation in Quimper. Quimper is a town and the capital of the Finistère department of Brittany in northwestern France. The name Quimper comes from the Breton kemper "confluent" because the city was built on the confluence of the rivers Steir, Odet and Jet. Quimper lies at the intersection of Route National 165, D785, D765 and D783, 34 miles northwest of Lorient. Quimper is the ancient capital of La Cornouaille, Brittany’s most traditional region, and has a distinctive Breton character. Shops and flags celebrating the region's Celtic heritage can be found throughout the city. The town has a rustic atmosphere with footbridges spanning the rivers that flow through it, while the pedestrianized streets of Vieux Quimper have a wide array of crêperies, half-timbered houses and shops. The Church of Locmaria, a Romanesque structure, dates from the 11th century. The Cathedral of Saint-Corentin, with its Gothic-style façade, was constructed between the 13th and 16th centuries. It is the oldest Gothic structure in lower Brittany. The town's best known product is Quimper faïence pottery. It has been made here since 1690, using bold provincial designs of Jean-Baptiste Bousquet.

Places to visit in Brittany


Brittany sits in north-west France, occupying a large peninsula separating the English Channel and the Bay of Biscay. The town and port of Roscoff is served by ferry links with England and Ireland. A long jagged coastline is the region's great attraction, with magnificent beaches and seaside resorts on the northern shores of Cote d'Emeraude and Cote de Granit Rose. The south coast is gentler with wooded river valleys, a milder climate and the prehistoric sites of Carnac and the Golfe du Morbihan. The regional capital is Rennes and the great castle at Fougeres is unmissable.
