La Duchesse Anne
The surrounding area
Settled since the beginning of the 20th century in Lampaul (Ushant Island), the hotel-restaurant Duchesse Anneis an ideal holiday destination. Whether your heart takes you for a walk in nature or rather to discover the Breton cultural heritage, you will find on our island something to spend a pleasant holiday.
Your steps on the island of Ouessant will inevitably lead you to share the lives of these women and men who have lived on the island for centuries. At the bend of the paths, you will get acquainted with the memory of those who tirelessly worked rye and barley, while their husbands braved the sea. Go to meet these women, brooders of horses and sheep, builders of Goadskedou, and return in charge of their energy and their desire to make live Ouessant.
Don't forget the lighthouses, these must-haves from Brittany. Here they tag the rail of Ouessant, one of the most monitored areas in the world. While the lighthouse of the Stiff was commissioned in 1700, the lighthouse of the Créac'h is one of the most powerful in the world.
Also think about the ecomuseum of the House of Niou and the Centre of interpretation of lighthouses and beacons that will tell you everything about the maritime signs of antiquity to our days. Between two visits, enjoy the seaside. Rent a few bikes and start discovering the island with your family. Go through the center of the sail if you want to do some sport you itch, or take a Kayak outing.
In any case, whatever your choices, you will have something to enjoy on the island. A real starting point to discover the island, Lampaul is also a perfect return point with its friendly and welcoming bars and restaurants.
