France is beautiful from the sea...

PONANT invites you to take to the sea, without a care in the world, to enjoy a break from reality in a privileged setting, and cast a fresh eye over the infinite riches of the French coastline. As your journey unfolds and depending on the elements, you will enjoy magnificent moments as unique as they are unexpected.

From Saint-Malo, recharge your batteries during this authentic 7-night journey aboard the Jacques-Cartier* to discover the natural wonders of the Breton coast and its lighthouses

You will discover the Ponant Islands, which owe their name to the westerly location: Ponant means literally “where the sun sets”.

One of our favourite destinations is Bréhat Island. Also known as the Island of flowers for the wide variety of flora there, it will surprise you with the beauty of its landscapes, alternating rich vegetation and pink granite rocks. Made up of two islets, the northern part has a wild coastline, the extreme tip of which is marked by the Paon lighthouse. A crowd-free visit to one of the uninhabited Glénan Islands will offer you a picture-postcard setting: its white sandy beaches and emerald green waters evoke the exoticism of the distant Seychelles. To the north of the aptly named Belle-Île-en-Mer [Beautiful Island in the Sea] the Pointe des Poulains headland offers a natural and inhabited panorama with unspoiled beauty: eroded schist cliffs, caves, fine sandy beaches and heather-strewn moors form a setting that is ripe for exploration. 

After an escapade in Douarnenez Bay and before the Tas de Pois at the furthest tip of the Crozon peninsula, you will reach Saint-Malo for the conclusion of this journey to the heart of wild and majestic Brittany. 

The conditions will be ideal for nautical activities such as kayaking, far from the crowds, allowing you to enjoy these moments in peace and quiet. You will sail to the heart of bucolic and unique landscapes, discovered at high tide, which encourage contemplation and observation of nature.

 

This itinerary is given as an indication only. Based on tide times and weather conditions, the Captain and the Expedition Leader may need to change the order of certain ports of call to ensure guests have the best possible experience.

Encounters with wildlife are possible but cannot be guaranteed.
