Petanque players at Perros Guirec in Brittany France. Pétanque (French pronunciation: [petɑ̃k]) is a form of boules where the goal is, while standing inside a starting circle with both feet on the ground, to throw metal balls as close as possible to a small wooden ball called a cochonnet (literally "piglet") or jack. It is also called sometimes a bouchon (literally "cork") or le petit ("the small one"). The game is normally played on hard dirt or gravel, but can also be played on grass, sand or other surfaces.
Location: Place de Teignmouth, Perros Guirec, Brittany, France
