We had a lovely holiday in this beautiful part of France. The property is very clean and well appointed with a lovely large garden and lake. Away from the crowds we enjoyed cycling, walking and watching the wildlife without having to get in the car. However we were close enough to the beaches (40 minutes drive) and small towns when we wanted.
I would highly recommend this part of Brittany and this lovely cottage.
Lieu et cadre très agréable. Situation idéal pour se reposer. Propriétaire sympathique et accueillant, à la disposition des locataires. Lieu à recommander.
Rural Brittany offers rolling countryside, sometime wooded, sometimes open with an amazing network of deserted roads.
The area offers: tranquility, forests, canals, lakes and ancient towns set in the countryside or on the wonderful coastl.
Memories will be of beautiful sunsets, interesting corners to explore and easy access to market towns, restaurants offering menus full of wonderful local produce and prices to match every pocket.
Shopping in local supermarkets, Guemene sur Scorff, Plouay - both within ten minute drive, or further afield cosmopolitan shopping in the boutiques of Lorient). Most days you can find a market in the towns (Hennebont, Lamor Plage, Guemene) selling local produce.
Pass the days walking or cycling on the deserted roads, visiting the superb beaches or just taking in the peace and quiet you won't find anywhere else.
This area is an absolute paradise for cycling enthusiasts. Plouay hosts its own championships at the end of August every year. All the top riders attend - one of the highlights of the cycling year and a must for any keen rider (there is also an all-comers event for both men and women - arrangements can be made for anyone wanting to enter this event.
Brittany is the most western part of France and its most distinguishing feature is the rugged coastline; a necklace of charming coastal villages and fishing ports strung together by sandy beaches and bizarre pink granite rock formations which create a haven for wildlife and holidaymakers alike. Brittany sets itself apart from the rest of France – you’ll see a different way of life here; Brittany has its own customs, food and culture. Fortunately the language is the same as the rest of France now, so even with just a bit of French knowledge, you can make yourself understood.
Approximate non-stop, direct travel times by road from the ports are: Roscoff 2hrs; St Malo 2.5hrs; Caen 4hrs, Cherbourg 4.5hrs; Calais 7.00hrs If you are flying and then hiring a car Lorient is 45mins, Brest 2hrs and Dinard 2hrs. In all cases French Customs usually clear very quickly but in peak season the ferries can take an hour to unload. Quick turnarounds are the order of the day for budget airlines so luggage handlers may load the next flight before bringing arrival luggage to the carousel. (TopTip one person wait for baggage the other go through car hire processing.) Direct routes are given. There are short cuts, particularly from St Malo, Avranches & Dinard that the Michelin map and a good navigator and sometimes GPS will perceive. On a ring road the top name indicates the direction in which the next exit will take. The spacing of signs is less formal than in the UK but they usually “come up” more quickly. Signs are smaller, often unlit but on main beam dazzle. UK cards may not work at the péages so have change ready and, of course the window is always on the left. Speed camaras and speed checks are becoming much more frequent and fines, for auto camaras, are posted to your UK address. (New European agreement!) On the spot fines demand cash but you demand a receipt [facture]. )Apart from the larger towns at busy times driving in Normandy and Brittany is very, very much more peaceful than in the UK. Stops on autoroutes are usually offered at ½ hr intervals. All have a picnic area and toilets. Other services, if present, are indicated on the pre-warning boards. July-August on peak days (weekends) hold-ups at péages and toll bridges can be considerable.
