Charming hotel in the seaside in northern Finistère
In a quiet corner of a historic fishing port, surrounded by the ever-changing sea, a calm and gentle dream of Brittany awaits you.
Once a humble pension, this charming small hotel now offers its visitors comfortable modern accommodation in delightfully decorated rooms, it has Roscoff’s best sea views across to the Île de Batz.
Whether you come here to relax, to play or even to work, you will not fail to be soothed by the tranquillity of L'Hôtel Aux Tamaris. The owner Odile and her manager Christophe, both English speakers, enhance this experience with their warm welcome and personal service.
Historically a haven for privateers and the port from which the bicycling ‘Johnnies’ set out to sell their onions (oignons rosés) in Britain, Roscoff (‘Rosko’ in Breton) was designated one of Brittany’s ‘Petites Cités de Caractère’ in 1976, and is both a modern holiday resort and a historic town that has preserved its superb architectural heritage from the 16th and 17th centuries.
Renowned too for its iodine-rich sea air and gentle climate maintained by an ocean current that fluctuates only between 8°C and 18°C, Roscoff offers many faces to its visitors today.
It is the ideal destination for anyone who wants to sail, look at nature, explore, have a party, take a seawater cure (thalassotherapy), or enjoy the many other activities on offer for the whole family.
Like all the towns of the Brittany coast, Roscoff has been shaped by the turbulent sea. Now it is where your peace of mind begins.
