      Lodgings and pottery

      by Pawtuxet Online Now Sep 7, 2016 at 6:55 AM

      I'll be making a little side trip to Quimper from Angers by train while I'm in France next spring. I'm looking for suggestions for lodging near the train and where I can find some of that fabulous Quimper pottery. I prefer small, privately owned hotels with an authentic feel to it. Not interested in glossy, shiny new things.

      Quimper pottery lover needing recommendations & Hotel

      by Pawtuxet Online Now Aug 1, 2016 at 8:52 AM

      I'll be visiting Quimper in the spring of next year. I'll probably take a train from Angers. I'm looking for recommendations of a mid range, small authentic hotel which would be walking distance from the best area to shop for Quimper pottery. Love the antiques. . . not sure of pricing. Would love to see lots of versions of this wonderful pottery.

      There is a shop near the Quimper Museum of Faience that sells local produce like biscuits and crepes. Do you know the name?

      A few clarifications would be helpful

      by Pawtuxet Online Now Jan 15, 2012 at 6:14 AM

      When all of you speak of Quimper are you talking about an old town which is walled or is that another part of Quimper?
      Has anyone stayed overnight in an inn or small private hotel? B&B in Quimper?
      We plan to visit for a couple of days and want to be able to walk those beautiful little streets with timbered buildings and wonderful restaurants and shops... filled with pottery. Not interested in "city life".

      Quimper: a restaurant in a mill along a stream where they catch your fish!

      by stevewall Online Now Jan 4, 2004 at 11:14 AM

      In 1972 (yikes, so long ago) I had a fabulous meal somewhere near Quimper, France in a restaurant located in an old Mill. The water wheel still functioned and I sat at a window that gave a great view of it. I ordered fish, and to my astonishment they went outside and I could observe a man as he caught the fish! I can't remember if they just caught it in a net or what, but it is a story I have told many times. Now the opportunity has come to revisit France with my wife and I would love to share the experience with her, but don't remember a thing other than what I've written above. Does anyone know of such a place? I sure would appreciate knowing. If you do, please post it here and send me an email as well at: To avoid spam I have replaced the @ symbol.
