In Saint-Philibert, in Quiberon Bay, the Perle de Quehan-Maison Quintin produces natural oysters in the pure tradition of Breton oyster-farming. Take a tasty detour to learn about the work of the oyster farmers and, in season, try the Belon, the Pompadour and seafood dishes.
The Quintina family has been working its oyster racks for 3 generations in this authentic setting, with its scent of sea spray and clean sea air. In this little paradise, sheltered by Quéhan Cove, the family lovingly raises its “pearls” with their typically Breton flavour: “Belons”, “Pompadour”, “Boudeuse” or “Spéciales”. Maison Quintin is a traditional operation that lives to the rhythm of the spats and the tides. There’s also a small seafood restaurant offering enchanting views across Quiberon Bay. Look out to the horizon as you enjoy seafood tapas, smoked salmon, stuffed clams and, of course, oysters, such as the “Pompadour”, very popular with the Marquise for its fine, noble flesh. To extend the pleasure, Maison Quintin has a pretty shop with panoramic breeding tanks, where lobsters, crabs and spider crabs live in freedom. Why not go home with a souvenir of the product of local fishing, along with a bottle of Chablis or Sancerre…More than just an oyster farm, La Perle de Quéhan-Maison Quintin is a secret summer address just a short ride from the beaches of La Trinité-sur-Mer.
