Saint-Pol-de-Leon, Brittany. 2014 ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

Travelled : 65 miles

Visited : Coast of the Granite Roses, Tregastel Plage and Saint-Pol-de-Leon

Stayed :ย Saint-Pol-de-Leon, municipal aire, with services, โ‚ฌ5

We are up and off early to do the granite roses walk around the coastline in our campsite in Tragastel. ย The whole coast along this area of Brittany has huge granite boulders both around the shoreline and rising out of the water. ย In this area the granite is a pale but distinct pink colour, hence the name. ย Anyway an hour and a half later we are back having breakfast and decide to move on.

I should comment on how good the campsite are here in France. Tourony for example has a bar and coffee shop and you can order BBQ chicken, that’s cooked on site and your baguette is delivered in the morning. ย Very clean and tidy with wifi included.

We continue our journey west along the Brittany coast. ย It’s an easy drive and we stop at a couple of lookouts, but continue on through Morlaix before heading north toward Roscoff. It’s almost 2pm when we stop for lunch inย Saint-Pol-de-Leon. ย We find a great spot in a little park on the waters edge and lunch camper car style. ย It’s so nice here, we call enough for the day and move a couple of hundred metres to the Aire and set up for the night.

By 4 pm where rested and we get the bikes out. ย We ride the port, the break wall before heading up the hill into the centreville ofย Saint-Pol-de-Leon.

We find the Notre Dame Saint Pol, which isn’t hard to miss as the steeple is just massive. ย Anyway we wander the shops in the old town for an hour, then head back to the aire for dinner and drinks.
