Just on the north coast of Brittany in France, Roscoff is an idyllic little fishing village that is both charming and picturesque in equal measures.
The buildings date back to the 16th century in its oldest parks, and the shops on the narrow, quaint streets are awash with galleries and charming cafés.
There are also many street vendors who specialise in the traditional Brittany dishes such as Breton crepes. And there are also many spas here, making use of the seawater so nearby.
Just 15 minutes away is the stunning Ile de Batz, a small island that is reached by boat. There is the most exquisite exotic garden there, and that is what draws most visitors, but apart from the garden there are some spectacular beaches and an impressive lighthouse.
Back in Roscoff and the Notre Dame de Croaz Batz is the most beautiful and tranquil church which was built between 1522 and 1545. See the sacred enclosure, the tomb of Dorothy Silbourne, and the magnificent steeple.
An intriguing place to visit when in Roscoff is Le Comptoir des Algues. Here you can learn about the properties of seaweed – and there are many! You can even buy seaweed products to take home with you.
