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

I started from the confluence, which is how Quimper got its name, and followed the Odet closely crossing to the east bank by one of the pretty footbridges. Locmaria with its pretty square and ancient church followed. I continued to hug the river past cows in fields and onto a short section of road under the modern road bridge. Another... More

We just love river boat trips so we went to the Quimper tourist office to find out how to get to Benodet by a river trip and they organized for us to go on this trip. You catch a bus from the Centre of the old part of Quimper to the boat mooring. Then you travel along a very pretty... More

A delight to stroll along both banks of this lovely river and take in the gardens and the floral displays. The perfect setting that adds to much to this fine city ( or indeed is it the other way round?)

The one trip that I had planned for certain before leaving Yorkshire for Brittany was this trip up the Odet towards Quimper from Benodet - except that I thought it would be the other way round! Either way, it was spectacular - calm open stretches by the sea, tree- lined narrows, and then chateaux and other sites gliding by. If... More

classic continental style of city build within boundaries of the river. Looked good with nice paths alongside but really quite standard.

If you are a hiker, L'Odet offers endless chances of getting lost in a beautiful, tranquil Ría! The trails are impeccable, well marked and you will find markets and castles open to the public all over! Do not forget to visit the nursery right next to the golf course. From Plomelin follow one of the many trails and you will... More

We went on a two hour trip up the river and found that there was very little to see. The River Fal in Cornwall is very much more attractive

A brilliant example of how to make a river interesting! Build pretty bridges over it and cover the railings in flowers! Well worth a wander especially if it leads you to where you want to go!

A stroll down the Odet is lovely, but the medieval garden, right next to the river, is quite stunning and and worth the walk. It is so well designed and signed, and very peaceful. The church next door, Locmarie, is also worth a peek...it is the oldest in town, very simple on the inside, and had Gregorian chants playing, adding... More
