At the far north of Finistère lies an astonishing island, between a maritime region and a market garden atoll, named Batz. This Ponant Island in the path of the Gulf Stream, enjoys a microclimate ideal for the development of a rich biodiversity and a gentle way of life. Its idyllic, almost exotic landscapes, between fine sandy beaches and luxurious vegetation, will be the setting for a real change of scenery. The Serpent’s Hole, a granite chaos in the west of the island, is the site where legend claims that in the 6th century, Saint Pol, an evangelical monk from Wales, threw into the sea the dragon that was terrorising the island. As a sign of his gratitude, the count Withur gave him the island of Batz.
