Finistère is the most westerly department of Brittany, with its rugged, picturesque countryside, strong regional identity and many miles of coastline scattered with clean, sandy beaches. In fact Finistère is the most coastal department of France accounting for almost one quarter of the country’s overall coastline and almost half of its towns and villages are located at the coast. Bordered to the north by the English Channel, to the west by the Irish Sea and to the south by the Atlantic Ocean, this is the perfect location for those who love the sea and of course, delicious fresh fish and seafood. Over millions of years, waves and storms have shaped the rugged coastline, giving a wild beauty while the proximity of the Gulf Stream gives a gentle climate.

The capital city of the region is Brest, which has as an average of 1732 hours of sunshine per year (comparison Toulouse 2,000 hours per year) and average maximum temperatures of around 22 degrees Celsius. Finistère has superb transport links, Brittany’s toll free roads make it easy to access a host of ports and airports, but the region is served directly by the port at Roscoff, the airport at Brest and TGV services to stations including Brest and Morlaix.
