Ile d'Ouessant reviews
This is a relatively scenic island but only really worth a visit if you want to cycle or hike as there is very little else to see or do aside from the two lighthouses. We really enjoyed the cycling... more »
Landed at the small airfield here on a lovely August afternoon. After a 45 minute walk to the village, we found the tourist information office next to the church as pointed out by the helpful airport.... more »
So densely populated.... But its awesome
Lovely island, not very populated in winter, supermarkets are expensive; you might shop before getting there, souvenir shops are closed in January and February, locals are nice and welcoming; it's always good to have talk about the life on the island, they'll tell you the stories and facts, boots are required when it's raining .
