The Brittany region
The Cotes d'Armor coastline is characterised by striking pink granite boulders, expansive sandy beaches and hidden coves.
The tourist town of Perros Guirec offers beautiful beaches, clear blue seas and boat trips to nearby islands to visit one of Brittany's most important bird sanctuaries. For the more active, walk along the old customs path, (Le Sentier des Douaniers) and admire the rose tinted boulders, or try one of the many watersports for which equipment is easily hired. By night sit at one of the many restaurants overlooking the harbour full of yachts or visit the Casino.
For those seeking peace and tranquility there are numerous sandy coves dotted all along the coastline.
The interestingly shaped pink granite boulders can be best enjoyed at Ploumanac'h, and Plougrescant. At the former you can climb amongst the boulders, sit on the small sandy beach, and visit the cluster of shops and restaurants. At Plougrescant view the amazing sight of a small granite cottage set inbetween the granite boulders.
Brittany and the Cotes d' Armor are rich in history. Côtes-du-Nord was one of the original 83 departments created during the French Revolution in 1790. It was created from part of the former province of Brittany. Its name was changed in 1990 to Côtes d'Armor (ar mor meaning by the sea in Breton). The name also has a historical connotation recalling the Roman province of Armorica.
Langoat is a picturesque village located at the head of the Jaudy estuary, close to the beaches of the Côtes d'Armor. The centre of the village is dominated by a large granite church. Opposite the house, on 'Place de L'Eglise' is a wonderful boulangerie. The village also has a grocers, bar/tabac and hairdressers, with larger supermarkets just five minutes away by car, in Treguier.
To the rear of the church lies the 'Terrain de Sport' . Here you will find the local football park as well as tennis courts.
As you enter the village along the banks of the river Jaudy you wil pass a park with two fishing lakes called 'Etangs de Milin Seazh'. To fish here you will require a permit, which is available from the village Mairie (town hall). You will also find excellent fishing in the river Jaudy, at La Roche Derrien, just five minutes walk from Langoat.
