It's a travel book a little bit particular this time because it's the one of my mom, Fanny. Indeed, she is the one who translates all the texts of Ethik Hotels. With more than 350 addresses it takes her time and we know that retired people never have time ! To thank her, I offered her a vacation in Brittany. She decided to go with her kindergarten friend who is also my godmother, Josette. In short, a travel diary that has a special flavor for me. I hope they will make you want to discover Brittany too!

We are Josette and Fanny, two childhood friends. We have just spent 2 nights at 46 in Bénodet (June 12 and 13, 2021) in the middle of our vacations in Brittany. The welcome is very warm. We discovered this former grocery store/ballroom nicely restored and decorated by Carole and Pierre (near the small typically Breton roman chapel of Perguet).

Welcome to 46

A renovation realized with great taste

The room of the grocery store has been transformed into a kitchen/dining room decorated with a thousand things, each one more heterogeneous than the other, and found by Carole on the right and on the left. They all find their exact place, and give a crazy charm to the place.

After the presentations, Carole shows us the rooms. Contrast, because in this old ballroom, the 3 rooms are modern, with a mezzanine worthy of a theater balcony, each one has its own particularity. They are almost small studios, we settle down there immediately and comfortably. The bedding is of very high quality and the colors very harmonious. We even found a little surprise on our pillow (but not to reveal everything to keep the surprise effect!)

A colorful breakfast

Carole asks us our favorite color, she says to prepare the breakfast tables. The next morning, nice surprise, the table is set with our colors! Carole has a huge stock of dishes that can meet all the requests, even the craziest. The breakfast is a real brunch. Delicious!

Le 46 is a certified establishment. See our article on the European Ecolabel to learn more about this certification.

Vacations in Brittany : what to do in the Bigouden country ?

We then leave to discover the surroundings. The place is close to beautiful huge sandy beaches like the one of Kerler, and as the weather is very nice we swim. The colors of the water have magnificent shades (blue, turquoise, emerald...)

Then discovery of the Bigouden country and the Breton coast. We will stroll between the market stalls of Forêt Fouesnant which is a very pretty small seaside resort of character, at the bottom of a ria.


The location of the 46 is at the center of multiple discoveries for your next vacations in Brittany. Pont-l'Abbé, and its castle for example, Quimper city of art and history, Concarneau and its walled city. And then the Pointe du Raz, an emblematic site, is not so far away. In short, there is plenty to do. For more information, visit the website of the Brittany Tourist Office.

It is really very hot, and Carole installs us deckchairs under the apple trees. We are really spoiled.

Pierre presents us his garden and his secrets of culture, Carole initiates us to the vegan cooking. We eat in the evening at the table d'hôtes and have tasted many flavors. A real discovery for us. We enjoyed ourselves.

In short, a stay that I would highly recommend to all those who want to discover this region full of charm.
