Presentation of Bénodet

Bénodet (3,702 inhabitants in 2020; 1,053 ha) is a commune in the Finistère department. The Breton name Benoded means "mouth of the Odet".

Originally, the town was called Perguet, it was a rural town very close to the county seat, Fouesnant. A whole activity has developed around the port, a natural haven. The rural Perguet became Bénodet in 1878. The first tourists were already beginning to appreciate the barely sketched seaside resort.
Bénodet has a casino, a thalassotherapy centre, a cinema, a marina, a number of hotels, and several beaches. As with many coastal towns in Brittany, there are many second homes and the population increases sixfold over the summer period. Bénodet is also the site of menhirs and a church, dedicated to the 5th-century Irish saint Brigid of Kildare, which was built at the end of the 11th century and was classed as a historic monument in 1916.
