4 km from the campsite, between Pont-Aven and Concarneau, Névez is a charming seaside resort in South Finistère in Brittany that you will absolutely have to discover during your holidays at Camping La Pommeraie de l'Océan. With its small ports nestled at the bottom of the rias, its 12 km of fine sandy beaches labelled Pavillon Bleu and its villages of cottages built of "standing stones", this small corner of southern Finistère is a true haven of peace and nature nestled between the ocean and the Aven river.
The port and beach of Port Manec'h
Located in the commune of Nevez, at the mouth of the Aven, Port Manec'h is a small port where always floats like a perfume of "Belle Époque". The picturesque bathing cabins, the Dalmore mansion and the "Villa Julia", a luxurious hotel inaugurated in the 1920s where Arletty and Jean Gabin stayed, among others. Today, the resort is a delight for families looking for peace and nature. We love walking through the small streets lined with blue shuttered fishermen's houses as much as hiking on the path that leads from the beach to the harbour. A few cables away, the GR34 allows you to reach the Port-Manec'h lighthouse. In the distance, you can see the island of Groix and the Glénan!
From the port of Kerdruc to the castle of Henan
Leaving the beach for the river, hiking enthusiasts will find their happiness on the banks of the Aven towards the Cité des Peintres. On the way, the walker discovers the pretty port of Kerdruc, the old tidal mills, the miller's house, the Sainte Marguerite chapel and then the wood of the Hénan and its castle, a jewel of the Nevezian heritage.
Tahiti Beach and Raguenez Island
Fall under the spell of Raguenez, its port and its magnificent white sandy beach with turquoise waters that bears its name so well. Many campers consider Tahiti beach to be the most beautiful beach in Névez, or even in Brittany! Facing the port, you can see the island of Raguenez, a small paradise for fishermen on foot. If you like kayaking, it is possible to start from the pointe de Trévignon, a stone's throw from the campsite, to reach Île Percée, via Île Raguenez.
The village of the cottages of Kerascoët and Kercanic
Névez is also the country of the "men zao" which means "standing stones" in Breton. In the hamlets of Kerascoët and Kercanic, a few cottages built in stone in the 19th century have kept their authenticity. These buildings, which are unique in France, remind us that, until the 19th century, granite mining was Névez's main activity.
