To learn more about cider and Breton culture, you'll head to Le Faou -- the gateway to the Crozon Peninsula. Le Faou is a town of immense character, widely recognized as one of the most beautiful villages in France.
As you travel, your guide will tell you about this village that dates back to the 11th century, and (s)he will point out the traditional timbered houses in the center. You will also discover Saint Sauveur Church, facing the port. It is made of Logonna stone from Logonna-Daoulas -- a small village nearby.
At the Living Museum of Old Crafts & Trades, meet a team of volunteers whose passion is keeping the crafts and trades of yesteryear alive. The fifteen workshops house a potter, linen- and wool-spinners, embroiders, a lace-maker, a clog-maker, a blacksmith, sea-based trades, a basket-weaver, a chandler (rope-maker), and a wood-turner. Your visit focuses on the traditional aspect of cider-making, from the apple to the beverage. At the end of your visit, taste the cider and enjoy a delicious crepe with it.
Back on the coach, you'll drive to the Terenez Bridge. This curved cable-stay bridge, designed by architect Charles Lavigne, crosses the Aulne River to link the Breton cities of Argol and Rosnoën. Take in the view over Armorique National Park, and take note of the bridge's architecture, as it won the World Infrastructure Award in 2013.
