Welcome to 

Paimpol, located on the northern coast of Brittany, is a charming seaside town that has retained much of its former charm. The picturesque harbour, nestled in the heart of the city, is a place of intense activity, where colourful fishing boats and pleasure boats sway with the gentle tides. It is a haven for boating enthusiasts. It has 330 places, 40 of which are reserved for visitors. With its modern facilities and easy access to the city’s amenities, it is the perfect base from which to explore the city and the surrounding waters.

A few steps from the pontoons, you can discover a wide range of exciting activities. The cobbled streets invite you to stroll and soak up the picturesque atmosphere of the city. The traditional stone houses add a touch of authenticity, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The charming shops of Paimpol are also a major attraction. You can get lost in the narrow streets and discover a multitude of shops offering local handicrafts, clothes, jewellery, works of art etc. Gastronomy enthusiasts will also be delighted by the variety of restaurants and cafes Paimpol has to offer.

If you want to venture a little further, the surroundings of Paimpol are also full of interesting activities. Guests can take a boat trip to explore nearby islands, such as Bréhat, renowned for its unspoilt natural beauty.

We find ourselves protected from the elements, with the same desire for conviviality, to share our passion, and to make it live through many nautical and land activities.

We are fortunate to be able to benefit from a beautiful, …. and demanding navigation basin! The multitude of islands, islets, reefs and rocks that dot it, and the strength of the currents encountered there, are undeniably a powerful attraction for coastal navigation. The tour of Île de Bréhat is a must-see destination for a day out and even the fans of fishing will find something to their liking.

We are also fortunate to be based in the heart of a small town of character, which is a delightful setting for its harbour.

So, what are you waiting for to visit us?

* “Rouf” in good French; but the attendance of our British navigator friends distorted us!
