Things to see and do in and around Pont-Aven

Building picto
Artistic heritage
Make sure you take a trip to the local museum, the Musée de Pont-Aven, which gives a fascinating glimpse into the town’s history as a hub for artists. Maybe the most famous of the French artists to be drawn to Pont-Aven’s picturesque waterways, fields and winding streets is Paul Gauguin. Walk in his footsteps and see if you can guess which locations inspired world-renowned paintings such as ‘Breton Girls Dancing’ and ‘Winter at Pont-Aven’. Things might have changed a lot since the 19th century, but it is still easy to understand how this beautiful town was once so appealing to painters from all over France and the world.
Exploring nature
Pont- Aven takes its name from the Aven River, and what better way to explore the town and its surroundings at a leisurely pace than by hopping in a boat? Check out the company ‘Vedettes Aven Bélon’ for a boat ride which will take you from Pont-Aven all the way down the river to the ocean and back again. Alternatively, if you want to get a bit more active you might want to hire a kayak or a canoe to navigate the river on your own. For those who would rather explore on foot, take the challenge of the ‘watermills trail’ and discover the remains of over 15 watermills!

Celtic festivals
Brittany is well-known for being proud of its Celtic roots and traditions and Pont-Aven is no exception. The highlight of the year here is the ‘gorse-flower festival’ which has been running continually almost every year on the 1st of August since 1905. If you have any interest in Breton music, food, dance and customs don’t miss this! Parades, dancing and celebrations all lead up to the main event of the day: the annual crowing of the gorse queen.
