Pont-Aven

Long beloved by artists, this lovely village sits astride the Aven River as it descends from the Montagnes Noires to the sea, turning the town's mills along the way (there were once 14; now just a handful remain). Surrounded by one of Brittany's most beautiful stretches of countryside, Pont-Aven is a former artists' colony where, most famously, Paul Gauguin lived before he headed off to the South Seas.
