Off the western coast, you’ll find Ushant and Molène, rather wild and natural sites, but not as eccentric as the far-flung “Île de Sein”, over an hour’s crossing from Audierne. This tiny, car-free island is a microcosm of Breton resilience, battered by the elements but still stunning, especially if you have the chance to visit off-season. Sein itself barely seems to keep its head above water – the highest point on the island doesn’t reach 10 m above sea level !

Its exceptional environment and majestic landscapes have earned it the honor of being ranked among the “most beautiful villages of France”.
