Erquy & Nearby


Erquy is a beautiful working fishing port with a main central beach surrounding a harbour, where you can watch the catch being unloaded and even buy some of it on the quayside for your dinner later. Erquy was also the inspiration for Asterix and Obelix's village in the famous children's stories.

The town centre contains several local shops, including fishmongers, bakers, and a small supermarket, together with a popular weekly street market; no high street chain stores, just charm and individuality. There is also a large supermarket on the outskirts of town which is open on Sundays in peak season.

Maison Theo is just a short stroll from Erquy’s array of restaurants, including several creperies and restaurants specialising in the local delicacy of scallops.

There are 10 beaches in total within a 10 minute drive of Maison Theo, perfect for building sandcastles and exploring rock pools.  The coastline, with its 15km of coastal paths, is particularly popular with walkers.
