Called the most beautiful river in France, the Odet river takes its source in Saint-Goazec and then crosses the city of Quimper before reaching its mouth at Bénodet. Located only 1 km away from the Sunêlia l’Escale St-Gilles campsite, the Vedettes de l’Odet landing stage will allow you to board for an unforgettable cruise on the Odet river to discover the landscapes and castles of the valley.
Travelling through the Montages Noires and its exceptional natural landscapes, the Odet winds up to its mouth between the ports of Bénodet and Sainte-Marine before flowing into the Atlantic Ocean. The Odet owes its nickname of “the most beautiful river in France” to the landscapes that border it: castles, manors, forests and landscapes changing at almost every turn.
Enjoy a boat trip or a star cruise along the Odet River and its protected natural sites. Starting from Bénodet or Quimper, it will take you to discover the beautiful manors and their parks as well as gardens of the valley of the castles, without forgetting the pontoon specially designed by Eric Tabarly, famous navigator who lived in the heights of the Odet, to moor his sailboat “Pen Duick” there. And to best appreciate this river and its shores, try the kayak trip from Bénodet. Whatever the means you choose, the descent of the Odet river is a tourist circuit not to be missed during your holidays in Brittany at the Escale Saint-Gilles campsite.
