The pretty town of Châteaulin is located in a valley towards the centre of the Finistère. Situated on the river Aulne, (renowned for its Salmon fishing). Châteaulin is centrally located between Quimper to the south and Brest to the north.

Châteaulin is also very close (10 miles) to the beautiful Pentrez beach, it's the kind of beach where you can kick footballs, hunt crabs and fly kites. Backed by high cliffs pockmarked with caves, Pentrez has safe shallows for tots, as well as high adreneline sports such as sand yachting and speed sailing. And if high adreneline is what you want, you can always take advantage of the nearby Menez Hom, the highest point in the Finistere, to launch your hang glider,
Or if you are looking for something more relaxing, there are beautiful walks all around, more picturesque villages than you could shake a stick at, like the medieval Locronon or just sit by the river and do a bit of fishing. Whatever you want from your holiday, Châteaulin & Finistère has it.
