Reasons for trip


We travelled with Brittany Ferries on a short break to Roscoff. I had only passed through the Port of Roscoff before en route to other places. I was very pleasantly surprised by how beautiful the granite coast is. The old part is full of attractive granite built houses. Mary Queen of Scotts landed here aged 6. She must have been terrified of the approach so full of dangerous outlying granite rocks and in her day they would not have been marked like they are now with great orange beacons.

The Hotel was small & charming. A lovely welcome from a bubbly Elizabeth who showed us to our room. The room was fresh & clean with a nautical feel with topical pictures & a mirrored window reflecting the view. The bathroom was roomy with a good shower.. The rooms had pretty names & No.24 has an enormous bed, free wifi & satellite tv but not easy to find the English programmes. The room had a stunning view across the water to the Ile de Batz & we could watch the Ferry come & go and all the action on the water from Fishing boats to fast ribs.

The hotel is in lovely quiet position, near enough to walk to the town & the nearest good Restaurant Le Surcouf served delicious Fruits de Mer. Very attractively & generously presented.

Breakfast is refreshingly pleasant buffet style (20 euros for 2) with window seats overlooking the sea.

There is so much to see & do in Roscoff & from the hotel you can walk to the Port & catch the ferry to Ile de Batz.. The island is big & has a restaurant which can be seen as you arrive.

Le Jardin Exotique et Botanique in Roscoff has to be viewed for its huge collection of South African plants, huge Echiums, a cactus house, Protea, Eucalpytus etc. There is a panoramic view from the top of the 18 meter high natural granite rock with the bay of Morlaix in view. Wheel chair access on the winding paths through the garden with sitting points amongst the stunningly colourful garden. Open March to November. 6 euros per person.

We were only there for 2 days but they were fun filled & we left with a host of images and colours. Fields & fields of artichokes all along the roadside in the country. The beaches are lovely too & we enjoyed a good picnic watching the people gathering mussels.

The supermarket Leclerc has good value wines & cheeses. The pleasant atmosphere of the Hotel aux Tamaris made our stay. Hugh Skully the antiques man was there enjoying the same 2 day break as us.
