The Brittany region

Engaging scenery, charming villages, warm people…

Fine foods and good wine, a peaceful rural setting, relaxing outdoor pursuits and many beautiful beaches.

The Morbihan region of southern Brittany can supply all of this... and more.

This quiet fishing and farming region of France is blessed with a beautiful and varied coastline and an interior of lush farmland, woods and moors to delight the country lovers.

The native Breton people, of Celtic descent appreciate their visitors and provide a warm welcome. Their local 'Pardons' and 'Fetes', regional costumes, music, dances, legends and language maintained by the Bretons are a large part of the area's unique charm.

Brittany 's restaurants and bistros supply some of the best of French provincial cooking, very reasonably priced and in generous proportions.

You can't leave without sampling its 'fruits de mer', crepes and cider.

Brittany 's rolling hills, dense forests and lazy rivers, offer a variety of activities; from walking, riding and cycling to fishing and canoeing.

The rich architectural and archaeological heritage provide for excellent one-day tours; the fascinating towns of Pontivy, Josselin, Dinan and Vannes are full of historical interest. Then, of course, there are the megaliths, churches and for the stout-hearted there's the 'quest for the Holy Grail' and the Arthurian legend.

To the south, a short traffic-free drive away, is the beautiful Golfe du Morbihan, a yachtsman's paradise, with all manner of water-sports and numerous little islands to visit on the regular ferries.

Or just relax in the sunshine on an endless choice of beautiful beaches. Additionally the large lakes at Guerledan and Priziac offer excellent facilities for swimming, boating and sunbathing.

Each cottage has details of local amenities and resorts to help you plan your holiday.

Morbihan offers a wealth of activities all within 45 minutes of the cottages.

Guern

This is an ideal location for those who enjoy the countryside. The coast is 40 minutes away as are lakes Guerledan and Ploermel for watersports. The rivers Sarre and Blavet are excellent for trout and coarse fishing, licences cab be obtained locally.

The historic towns of Pontivy, Vannes, Josselin and Auray are great for shopping and exploring and you'll find cafes, bars and rstuarants along the cobbled streets kERHIEC is approximately 10 kms from the town of Guemene sur Scorff.

Remnants of the medieval chateau remain though it was destroyed in the late middle ages and many of the existing old houses have been built from the stones of the chateau. Guémené-sur-Scorff has been granted preliminary permission to become an "Petit Cité de Caractère" which hopefully will be confirmed in two years.

You will find good restaurants in the town, a cinema boulangeries and charcuteries.

The lovely walled town of Vannes is a must on any visit to Morbihan. Take a walk around the narrow, cobbled streets, through the medieval gates, before settling down for lunch at a café alongside the attractive marina. If you’re with the kids, head down to the Parc du Golfe for a look around the aquarium and Jardin aux Papillons (butterfly garden).

• Saint-Goustan

Once one of the busiest ports in Brittany, picture-perfect St-Goustan is now one of the most popular sites in Morbihan. Enjoy lunch in a waterside restaurant while admiring the half-timbered houses before joining a boat trip around the gulf or crossing the stone bridge to explore Auray.

• Guerlédan

West of Mûr-de-Bretagne is the Lac de Guerlédan, Brittany’s largest lake. Not only is this the perfect place for sunning yourself or messing about on the water but the area also offers extensive trails for walking and cycling. The Quénécan forest and Abbaye de Bon Repos are not to be missed.

There are numerous activities too within 40 minutes of the cottage... The Canors Adventure Forest for fun in the trees; canoeing on the Blavet; watersports at Lakes Guerledan and Ploemel; horse riding; golf...
