The Art Trail
The sun is shining on the coasts of Brittany (yes, it happens more often than you’d imagine!) and suddenly you’re faced with a dilemma: to stroll through the galleries of a museum or to hike a trail. To find a nice compromise, go to the Dourven site.
Along this hike, between the forest and the water, the landscapes appear like superb paintings. After a short walk, a first work points the tip of its nose: the beach of Kirio. A patch of sand bordered by a few trees whose reflections color the crystal waters… This scene of nature, is worth all the paintings!
And if the beginning of this hike in Brittany has awakened the artist in you, wait until you see the rest! Continue to wind your way between the customs path until you reach the Pointe du Dourven. Once there, all you have to do is sit back and admire the palette of colors shining on the whole bay. You will almost regret not having brought your canvas and easel with you!
Good news, an artists’ den, the cultural center of Dourven, stands not far from there.
While we are not sure that the local painters will lend you their brushes, on the other hand, you will be able to discover their contemporary works exposed in this gallery. Once the visit is over, go back down the hiking trail, at the end of the route: the orient awaits you and we’re not talking about the city of Morbihan!)
A few meters from the beaches, the bamboo grove of Dourven invites you to travel. Who would have thought that a hike in Brittany would lead you to Japanese landscapes?
