We parked by the river since this is by far the biggest and easiest car park to get into. Then its only a few minutes walk into Quimper.

We walked some of the river - really pleasant and worth doing. If you end at Quimper then get an ice cream or crepe - you know you deserve it!

In July the walk alongside the river from the station to the town is a tremendous surprise. The collection of a dozen or so decorated bridges along with gardens on either bank are something special.

I stayed in benodet and visited quimper and thought the Odet river was very pretty. Nice to take a few photos of. Nice to have a stroll along the river.

The riverfront in Quimper is a beautiful and clean one. Generally on some river fronts there is slight stench of dirty or stagnant unclean water, however Quimper has it absolutely right. The water is clean and all the side walks and flower beds are immaculately maintained which adds to the attraction of the city.

Verdantly decorated. Fish can be seen at low tide (this is an estuary). Wends through town. Nice stroll, even in the rain

It is an absolutely beautiful place, so harmonious, so lovely, so glorious. We had a great stroll among all these beautiful trees and flowers, along the prettiest river.

Stopped off for lunch on our way to the coast. Found a beautiful place to stroll along the river on a glorious sunshine day.
