The Brittany region
Brittany has a remarkable diverse landscape, rich in history, music, festivals, myths and legends, as well as a very warm welcome from the Bretons. With its mild climate and outstanding beauty, it is popular holiday destination at any time of the year.
It has miles of spectacular coastline, long sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and coves. To the south there are many safe sandy Beaches (45mins) : Lomener Plage, Lamour Plage, Guidel Plage, Raguenes (near Pont Aven)
There are numerous historic towns to visit, bustling markets to explore, beautiful lakes and countryside to enjoy.
Le Faouet – historic market town with magnificent medieval market place, art gallery.
Vannes is an attractive and well preserved medieval town. Aside from its bustling port and waterfront cafes and bars, there are beautiful gardens in summer in front of the old city walls. Half timbered houses overhang the cobbled streets; cafes, creperies, bars, restaurants, great shops and plenty of charm make a visit to Vannes an unforgettable experience.
Visit Auray with its quaint cobbled streets, excellent shops, bars, restaurants and picturesque harbour area surrounded by half timbered houses. Market Day is lovely here.
The famous Megalithic stones at Carnac run for miles and are better than Stonehenge! We highly recommend a visit as they are said to be one of the most important sites in the Ancient World.
Carnac has a long sandy beach and sports many shops, restaurants and is right next to the Trinite sur Mer harbour where there are lots of beautiful yachts, more restaurants and shops.
The Quiberon Peninsula is a good excursion, drive down the wild "Cote Sauvage" on the Atlantic side then return and relax beside the calmer waters of Quiberon and its beach on the leeward side. This can be incorporated with a day at Carnac and its beach (also sheltered by the Quiberon peninsula).
Pont Aven is a pretty riverside town famed as the home of Gauguin where he was visited by artists of the Impressionist era. There is a museum of paintings by Gauguin and others as well as numerous art shops and studios selling all manner of paintings. It has its own painting school.
Other historic towns worth visiting are Quimper with its cathedral in the west and Pontivy to the north - the central town on the Nantes Brest canal built by Napolean, hence the town's original name Napoleanville. There are many chateaux to visit - Pontivy and Josselin to name but two.
Heading North there are many historic places such as the old walled town of Guincamp famed for its music and dancing festivals. The more rugged and charming beaches of the Pink Granite Coast are an hour and a half away.
We provide Local guides and maps for information on nearby towns and facilities.
The property is situated in the peaceful Scorff Valley. Close by at Priziac is the lovely lake & play area. Here the family can relax, swim, go boating, picnic, and there is lots for children to do and is set in wonderful countryside. It’s brilliant for walking, cycling and boating! Uncongested roads mean you can gently explore the surrounding area and Brittany's historic towns and villages at a relaxing pace.
There are footpaths to discover locally in the valley. Further afield is the meandering Nantes-Brest Canal, and the beautiful and more dramatic Blavet valley are a must to explore. The Blavet river flows through stunning scenery from Hennebont to Pontivy, where it connect to the Nantes a Brest Canal. Pontivy is a grand town and has great charm, the canal and river on two sides and splendid shopping. Here you will find boat trips and canoe hire.
A favourite but never crowded is Brittany’s largest Lac de Guerlédan (30 mins away) with its sandy beaches, various watersports and cafe’s and restaurant. The lake is surrounded by unspoilt woodland and hidden coves.
You are ideally placed to explore the different character of Brittany’s three beautiful coastal regions.
The coastline is never far away and our House leaflet will recommend you several gorgeous beaches, coves and less well known spots.
There are also plenty of pretty towns and villages to explore with busy markets, it is easy to spend an hour or so wandering among the stalls
Guemene sur Scorff a 10 mins drive away, is an historic market town. It thrives on good music & art festivals and delightful well preserved buildings. A medieval Queen’s palace is presently being restored.
There are many festivals all over Brittany during the summer and some of the best in local towns like Cleguerec. The world famous Celtic music festival takes place at Lorient in August.

"A peaceful, beautiful and relaxing place to stay"
Le Vieux Moulin is an incredibly tranquil house, set beside a stream in a peaceful valley where birds singing is about the loudest noise. There are good walks on the doorstep. The house itself is delightful; the garden is most attractive with the stream and remains of the original mill. It is well equipped, very comfortable with a really nice 'feel' to it.
Although in a quiet location, reaching fascinating and attractive places such as Pontivy, Vannes or Josselin is easy. The lack of traffic on the roads was a revelation! My two year old son loved the place. The owner was easy to deal with, helpful and flexible. In short I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone looking for a peaceful yet not inaccessible holiday in a beautiful part of Brittany.
I am so glad you both had such a wonderful time at le Vieux Moulin.
It never fails to give guests a peaceful, restful and really enjoyable holiday - and pleased to hear that you enjoyed exploring the beautiful countryside and fascinating old towns, as well as reached the coast too.
We hope to see you and your friends again one day!
