Apparently Douarnenez has no fewer than four harbours, it's also famous for a classic boat festival, so even though it wasn't festival time we had to make a visit while we were in Brittany.
Chateau style villa on an island with a traditional, local boat moored nearby, could be a scene from 100 years ago.
The Pouldavid River is entered via a lock, so while the outer harbours
have a huge tidal range, once inside depth is pretty constant.
is home to a huge number of interesting boats. I need to sort through the huge number of photos I took on the day and will post some of the interesting ones.
