Île-de-Sein, Finistère

France's favourite village logo

Île-de-Sein was nominated as one of France’s favourite villages by viewers to France3 TV Channel in 2018.

 

Five miles (8km) off the Pointe du Raz, the Île de Sein is arguably Brittany’s most unusual island, not least because it’s entirely flat. When you’re done exploring the only village’s museums, take a walk around the coast to see the lighthouse and the historic Free French Monument.

The village lies to the south-west of Brest..
