Saint-Yvi is a lovely little village at the heart of a rolling countryside. Hikers can experience great walks there, particularly along the valley of the Jet, as well as an unusual vantage point called “Là-Haut” (“Up There”) to admire the landscape all the way from the coast of Trévignon to Quimper!
Saint-Yvi is located to the west of Rosporden and owes its name to an Irish monk who founded the town in the VIth century.
Ramblers and cyclists can discover its heritage along the 45 km of countryside and wooden pathways.
In Saint-Yvi, at a stone throw of the centre of the village to the south stands a nice hill on the top of which lays the hamlet called Là-Haut. Perched at 168 m above sea level, you will discover a large panorama spreading from Trévignon to the Ville Close in Concarneau and even until Quimper’s Cathedral!
When the sky is clear enough, the vantage point offers a splendid view over the Glénan archipelago on the horizon.
