Poullan-sur-Mer (in the Breton language "poul" means parish and "lann" means monastery) is a small town in Finistère, just a few kilometres from the Pointe du Raz.
Just 7 km from Douarnenez and 20 or so km from Quimper, if you choose a camping holiday in Poullan-sur-Mer, you'll be able to make the most of it by visiting the various other towns of Finistère.
But above all, holidays in Poullan-sur-Mer mean enjoying the peace and charm of countryside holidays, whilst living in harmony with the tides!
And you'll be amazed by its astonishing megalithic monuments, such as the menhir and dolmen of Lesaff, and the "Allée couverte de Lesconil". This strange, covered pathway, around 12 metres long and 2.15 metres wide, is in fact a tomb dating back to the Neolithic era of 8,000 to 2,000 BC, proof that Poullan-sur-Mer has been home to many communities.
And as its Breton name implies, Poullan-sur-mer is home to various chapels and churches. So come and visit the chapel of Kérinec, the church of Saint Cadoan and the chapel of Saint-They, which is listed as a historic monument, perched on a cliff, looking over the Pointe du Van and facing out to sea. The Pointe du Van, like the Pointe du Raz, both of which are listed as "Grands Sites de France", enclose the Baie des Trépassés. Between steep cliffs, the immensity of the ocean and the powerful marine currents, the view is quite extraordinary!
