We visited parts of the Odet river between, and including, Benodet and Quimper. The water is very clear and, especially noticeable in Quimper, is affected by the tide: noticeably less full when the tide is out. The Odet is also a working river - which...More

Pleasant trip, with commentary about various points of interest. About 90 minutes to Benodet from the port linked to Quimper. Benodet is holiday resort, clean, good sandy beach, easy walk along prom. Plenty moorings for boats in large marina with associated chandlery. Need bus link...More

Sorry but its hard to get excited about just a river?! It doesn't have any amazing features. You walk past it when you park the car and want to walk into town.....that is about it!

Lovely stroll by the river, so many bridges over it that the children liked running from one to the other.

Walk along the Odet River from the Cathedral down two or three bridges and then turn right and wander through the historic district. Beautiful way to spend a Spring or Autumn afternoon.

Really lovely river walk, with its little "ponts" full with flowers and little gardens also. You can sit down near them and contemplate the view, eat something or just relax.

I really loved walking along this river in Quimper because of all the flowers that are in planter boxes along the bridges over the river which are many! It is just gorgeous. There are a lot of flowers along the grass which runs along the...More

We parked by the river since this is by far the biggest and easiest car park to get into. Then its only a few minutes walk into Quimper. We were there for the huge festival in which all the local districts bring bagpipe bands and...More
