Odet Walks

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.

It was a nice enough voyage but finding the starting point, In the middle of a sand dump, was not easy and also as it is 3 kilometres outside Quimper a bit disappointing. The Bateau was big with a very small coffee bar selling very little and not good coffee. Depending on the tides you may get a one way... More

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.

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
