THE ODET, AN EXCEPTIONAL COASTAL RIVER

Meet at the old port of Bénodet to board the Vedettes de l'Odet for a commented cruise on the Odet. Coming down from the Montagnes Noires, the Odet is well deserving of its title of "the prettiest river in France". From the vire-courts and its swirls of foam to the majestic flight of an ashy heron, from Porz Meillou to the cove of Saint Cadou, the Odet changes its face to better surprise you. Return to the quay around noon.

Lunch in a traditional restaurant in Bénodet.

Early afternoon, visit to a craft factoryunique in Brittany, of Breton cakes and handmade pancakes. Before your eyes, eight pastry chefs and crepe makers work according to the same recipes for five generations Follow the making of dough, cakes and small cakes, the cooking in the ovens or the making of pancakes.

Follow your guide to discover Quimper, City of Art and History: from the port, established in Locmaria since the Roman conquest, to the confluence (in Breton: Kemper) of the Steïr and the Odet where the city was established, passing by the quays of the Odet and its flowered footbridges, the ramparts, the old districts and its timber-framed houses and the unmissable Saint Corentin Cathedral, jewel of Breton Gothic art,
