Coastal Walking Holiday

This year we are walking on the north coast of Finistere, staying at the restored fishing village of Meneham, which is now a classified heritage site. The route is easy going - no cliffs, just endless bays, dunes and a few marshes. Great for bird-watching, and some interesting things to see - Men Marz, one of the largest menhirs in Brittany, and Iliz Koz, a church and cemetry with engraved medieval tombs, which were buried under the sand for centuries. We also get a glimpse of Ile Vierge, the tallest lighthouse in Europe. Rain or shine, it will be a great trip!
