Welcome to Quimper


Quimper, Brittany's oldest city, beckons those who need nothing more from a holiday than cobbled streets to wander through, a lazy river to cruise gently down or a wide selection of cafés and bars to sample. The idyllic holiday town of Quimper, spread around the junction of the Steir and Odet Rivers on the western edge of Brittany, serves the purpose well. Fortunately Quimper was spared the bombs of World War II and has escaped too much modern development, so the medieval character remains intact with old buildings overhanging narrow lanes and footbridges. If you can bestir yourself to investigate the local interests take a tour of one of the pottery studios that has been turning out internationally renowned Quimperware for centuries.
