Wessex Continental 2018

Brittany Long Weekend   


Our nearest Continental neighbours are just across the Channel in Brittany and our no-hassle weekend break is an ideal opportunity to get to know this pleasant part of France. We say no-hassle because there’s no queueing, no waiting around, your break starts as soon as you board the ship. Everything is taken care of, you just sit back, take in the local scene, relax and make the most of your brief holiday! Our 3* Hotel de l’Océan overlooks a sandy beach on the Baie de la Forêt. There’s a covered, heated swimming pool and jacuzzi for your indulgence. All rooms have private facilities,breakfast and dinner with wine included.

Thursday Meet the coach as shown below and travel to Millbay Docks, Plymouth where we catch the 2045 overnight sailing to France. It’s a very leisurely crossing on the flagship “Pont Aven”. Two cinemas and live entertainment keeps you occupied! A free Reclining seat is included or you can pay a supplement and have a cabin.
Friday We reach France at 0800 and when we are all aboard the coach we’ll set off westwards to the port and Naval Base of Brest to spend the morning. In the early afternoon we resume our drive to Concarneau where we check in to the hotel for two nights. The afternoon is free to take a stroll along the promenade or go into the town centre.
Saturday After a buffet breakfast we drive to Quimper, the ancient capital of Cornouaille, where it is market day. Stroll amongst the stalls, have some refreshment and absorb the unique atmosphere. There’s plenty of time to visit the impressive cathedral or take a walk by the river. We depart in the late morning and make a shopping / lunch halt at the Carrefour Hypermarket before we continue to the small resort of Bénodet
Sunday We have breakfast and we’ll leave around 1000 and head northwards to Morlaix. Just outside the town we’ll stop at Red Cash Beer and Wine Warehouse for some low cost drinks and then we’ll continue to Roscoff where we will spend the remainder of our time in Brittany before we catch the 1500 sailing to England. This reaches Plymouth at 2010 and after disembarkation, the coach returns to the original pick up points.
