How To Spend A Week In Bénodet With The Kids

Updated 5 March 2020 | by Lara McComish

Just a stone's skim across the Channel, Brittany is one of the most popular destinations in France. Luckily for Brittany, it is also home to the Breton beauty Bénodet. As a seaside town with family-friendly activities available on both land and sea, it is easy to see why Bénodet has become such a firm family favourite. Need more convincing? Here's how to spend a week with the kids in Bénodet.  


Mother and son at market

Monday is market day in Bénodet, so what a good place to kickstart your French rendezvous. Gather your foodie supplies for the week and take advantage of the hustle and bustle - the lively atmosphere and mouthwatering smells will keep the kids distracted while you stock up on essentials.

Tuesday Benodet beach, France

With four south facing sandy beaches to choose from, you could easily spend four days familiarising yourself with all of them. Though, we certainly wouldn't discourage this...


Mother and daughter rockpooling

Speaking of beaches, make sure you to head down to Saint-Gilles. It boasts a series of rugged rockpools that will bring out an adventurous streak in all the family. 


Old photos of Brittany

Continue the seaside theme and take them to Bénodet Seaside Museum. Capture their imaginations with tales of Finistère shores and fascinating artefacts, like vintage beach toys, photos and films.


Child sailing

Bénodet boasts a sailing school and supervised children’s summer clubs. Got a few hours alone? Grasp your new found freedom and take your hubby on a boat trip up the river Odet to Quimper, and out to the tiny Glénan archipelago


Sweet crepes Saturdays were made for treats, so treat your little angels to some traditional French crêpes. Bénodet has a generous offering of old school crêperies you'll all love. Our vote will always be with sweet, but there are also savoury crêpes around if you're that way inclined... 


Brothers at the cinema

In need of some enforced quiet time? We have just the ticket - Cinémarine in Bénodet shows all of the latest films and it may just be the downtime you all need before the relentless 'are we home yet?' cries.

Make one of our villas in Brittany your base for exploring.
