Favorite Monastery in Brittany

On our island hopping tour through Brittany (3 islands on 3 days) we needed to find a hotel located in the middle of these islands (Ouessant, Glénan and Ile de Sein). The ferry was always crossing very early in the morning and the wine for dinner was to good to say goodbye at midnight – so we couldn´t lose any time on driving too long. The small town Douarnenez seemed to be a perfect stopover. When we were looking for our hotel I really felt in love with this charismatic city with an amazing harbour ending in the open sea. So once you are in Brittany, please don´t miss Douarnenez!

Caramel au beurre salé (caramel made of salted butter) is something you can´t go without trying it. But in the next morning my dessert was history and we had to go on with our tour. Ile de Sein, the last island, was waiting for us. Read in the next post why it is the perfect place to get drunk. P1470148P1470136P1470202
