Telecom Bretagne is around 20 minutes drive from Brest. All the major hotels are in the Brest center area.  The bus to Telecom Bretagne (or tramway followed by bus) is to be taken in the city center, e.g. just near Gare and Liberte spots. It takes approx. 30 minutes for the trip, a bus every 20 mins from 6AM to midnight.

A special bus will be managed by Telecom Bretagne for Wednesday evening dinner at POinte St Matthieu to bring you back to hotels.

You have three choices, depending on your expectations and fees:

  1. you prefer to be in the city center (e.g. shopping, social & evening life, visits),  approx. 30 mins from Telecom Bretagne. Please find below a selection of 5 hotels ordered by fees (Continental, Oceania, de la Gare, Abalys, St Louis); You will be near your hotel after Tuesday evening Town Hall cocktail, we will bring you back after Wednesday dinner;
  2. you prefer to be in a quiet environment and walk near cliffs, 30 mins from the city center, seaview, prefer Belvedere Hotel. You will be near Telecom Bretagne (5 mins by bus) and will have to take the bus to go back at your hotel Tuesday evening after Town Hall.
  3. you prefer great sightseeings, romantic areas, typical small fishing towns from Brittany just near, prefer Hostellery St Matthieu. You will need a car!
