    A typical small French Hotel

    by

    UP-DATE MAY 2014

    We did not stay here on our most recent visit but did notice some significant changes in the restaurant when we walked by. The layout and d├ęcor are new giving a crisp, fresher look that makes it seem a little more spacious.
    We discovered that the hotel is now run by Gilbert and Sylvia Lesaignoux

    On our last visit under the former owners there was nothing "prickly" about the "Blue Thistles" at this typical 2* Logis de France Hotel.
    Situated in a very narrow street at the heart of the town, no private parking, no glamourous reception area - in fact you walk through the front of house restaurant to the check-in counter. But we like this approach - more a restaurant with rooms than Hotel.

    Our second floor room (no lift - and 6 years on we would both find the stairs difficult ) was fine. Big enough for a night or two, comfortable twin beds, an adequate shower room and a view over the back street.

    *The new website indicates considerable upgrading of the bedrooms of which there are 10.

    On the first of our two night stay 6 years ago we ate in the restaurant - and were glad we had reserved a table as it was full with mainly non-residents! The restaurant still seems to be doing very well and passengers we met on the ferry told us they had eaten there and highly recommend it.
    Parking is not a problem and we were able to park outside the hotel, or just a few yards up the road in the church square.

    Unique Quality: Hotel has been upgraded see website for photos and current (very reasonable) prices.
    A typical, friendly, relaxed, 2* French hotel. A clean, comfortable room and reported to serve very good food in the restaurant.
    We would consider staying on a future visit if a first floor room was available.

    Directions: In one of the old town centre narrow streets.

Travel Tips for Roscoff

The Breton Language

by johngayton

From ancient times until the Middle Ages the west of Brittany was a Celtic-dominated region with its own language. Breton Celtic is very similar to the other Celtic laguages such as Irish and Scots Gaelic, Welsh and Cornish but has almost nothing in common with French.

Pre World War I it's estimated that 90% of the western Bretagne population spoke Breton as their first language. Today this figure is probably less than 20% and most of those are over 60 years old.

In the latter half of the 20th century the language seemed doomed to extinction but recently there has been a revival in interest in ensuring that it is not lost.

Schools and adult classes now offer courses and public buildings and services have begun to adopt bi-lingual signage and to produce written materials in both Breton and French.

The pic here is the dual signage at the Roscoff Tourist Office.

A Morning's Meander Part 2 - Heading Back

by johngayton

"More Pics That Haven't Been Used For Tips"

Roscoff is very much a "Terre et Mer" sort of town. As pleasant to wander the streets as it is the shore. This is a typical residential street heading towards the town centre.

The main belltower of the Eglise de Notre Dame de Crois de Batz. Both the spiritual and physical centre of the town.

Off the main street you'll find little alleys to explore...

...at the end of which you'll often find somewhere to put your feet for five minutes (ie cigarette break!).

This really is a well-looked after town. Everything is clean and tidy and these early March blooms speak volumes as to the extent of civic pride.

Then onto the main street. Not a chain store in sight and even the banks discretely tuck themselves unobtrusively into set back niches.

Then back to the seafront as the tide starts to recede.

And my ferry awaiting.

So it's "Au Revoir Mon Ami - A Bientot."
