Beautiful although built up
Aug 2020 • Family
The river passes through the old town, nice to have a wander along the river, hanging baskets of flowers decorate what would be dull railings otherwise.
The only downside is the main road which runs along it meaning it’s not quiet or quaint like many rivers in towns.

The river in the centre of the town
Jun 2019
There are three rivers flowing through Quimper, Odet river flows through the centre. There are a lot of bridges (mostly footbridges) over the river and they are full of flowers. A very nice spor for walks and beautiful pictures can be taken here.

Beautiful spot in Quimper
Jun 2019
The river runs through the town, and its banks and bridges are beautifully decorated with flowers. There are a few places to sit and admire the view, and further down, the tour boat terminal where you can book a trip down this tranquil river to Benodet and its islands. Having stayed in Benodet I would think it is well worth the trip if you are based in Quimper - the mouth of the river and port are so pretty.

Interesting town

Stopped here on a wet day in our motorhome. Great to find suitable parking on the riverside. Good lunch served promptly and with personality. Range of interesting shops, church etc.

A Gorgeous Stroll in Quimper
Sep 2018 • Couples
There are sidewalks along the Odet and a stroll along the banks is a treat. I consider it a smaller scale River Seine experience.

The Odet is a tidal river, so you can feel the rivers energy as it ebbs and flows to the sea. The flower boxes bordering the bridges are spectacular! It's a great way to enhance your walk to the food market.

Just a river

Not really much to say about this, its a nice little river flowing through the middle of Quimper down to Benodet but nothing to really write home about

The Odet - Heart of the City
Sep 2018 • Family
A fine Saturday morning encouraged one to stroll along the banks of the Odet to note the varying architecture and admire the beautiful displays of flowers. Being tidal the scene can change dramatically. Last time water was washing stones on the bed of the river, but this time the tide was in and, the day being still, views with mirror images were to be seen.

Go in the summer to enjoy the flowers
Sep 2018 • Family
Each of the bridges across the river, automobile and pedestrian all have been decorated with hundreds of flower displays. Really makes for a wonderful walk any time of day.
