About this location
The Brittany region
The delights of the French way of life can be summed up in one word, Brittany. Brittany offers eight hundred miles of grand rocky coastline with scores of bays and little fishing villages. The enchanting countryside is dotted with giant granite boulders and wild meadows on the moors, thickets and forests in a gently rolling landscape.
It is the buildings that give a region its soul, and in Brittany, you can find it in the megaliths, calvaries, castles, manor houses, countless chapels and old villages. All of them bear witness to Brittany's eventful history and wealth of traditions. Brittany was, after all, home to the enchanted Forest, was where Merlin lived, and where corsairs sailed to the new world. The people from Quebec retrace their roots here, and Great Britain owes the "great" in its name to distinguish it from this unique region of France.
It is in western Brittany that Breton culture remains most evident. In Quimper, and in the Pays Bigouden, crèpes, cider, traditional costumes and Celtic music are still a genuine part of the Breton lifestyle. Vannes, Dinan and Rennes, the Breton capital, have well preserved medieval quarters where half-timbered buildings cover markets, shops, crèperies and restaurants.
The walled port of St-Malo on the Côte d'Emeraude recalls the region's maritime expertise, while the remarkably intact castles at Fougères and Vitré are still a reminder of the mighty border-fortresses that protected Brittany's eastern frontier before its final union with France in 1532.
Holidaymakers are enticed to Brittany by its magnificent array of seafood such as shellfish, oysters, scallops and many tasty varieties of fish. Brittany is also famous for its farm produce such as salt meadow lamb, poultry and pork meat products.
Other specialties of the region are wafer biscuits and butter cookies. However, Brittany's proudest addition to the great cuisines of the world has to be the crêpe and its savoury equivalent the galette – these can be found all over in any of the typical Breton "crêperies" along the roadside or in the centres of old towns where visitors are often welcomed with a traditional cup of cider.
A long, rugged coastline, vast bays of glorious beaches, and a secretive, almost mystical interior is the lasting impression of Brittany. This most westward region of France, where the Bretons speak their ancient language and carry on age-old traditions, always seems a little out of step with mainstream France, but the many attractions welcome visitors in their thousands year after year.
We are 5-10 mins drive from the big sandy bay, at Plestin Les Greves. you can walk to the sea from the property through the forest along lovely lanes and past Chateaux and villages, it is a long walk but when you arrive there are bars and restaurants to relax in.
The pretty harbour of Locquirec is about 15 mins drive . The historic town of Morlaix is also very worth a visit, with a large Saturday Market.
The coastal path offers stunning views and hidden coves with small sandy beaches.
Situated on the border of Cotes d'Armor and Finistere the manoir is ideally placed for exploring these 2 departements.
Finistère is a region of wild rugged coastline, silver sandy beaches and open moorland in the centre, very unspoilt by tourism. The latin name for Finistère (Finis Terrae) means 'World's end', and as it is the furthest westerly point of France it feels very different to the rest of the country. The Bretons see themselves as being very different to other French people and the Breton language is still spoken by most of the older generation.
Finistère has made a unique contribution to European architecture in the form of the parish closes. These extraordinary complexes of church, triumphal arch, charnel house and carved calvary are often on such a scale as to dwarf the surrounding houses in the small villages in which they stand. As for the fruits of the sea and the fruits of the land, Brittany is renowned for its seafood, young lamb fed on tender grass and locally grown vegetables such as globe artichokes and cauliflowers.
The nearest large town is Morlaix, 15 minutes away. It has a picturesque port with many sailing boats and plenty of museums, art galleries and 17th century houses to visit. Also, in August, there is a highly colourful "Art in the Streets" festival, in which street theatre takes place all over the town.
The old town is still, in parts, medieval. There is a huge viaduct, made out of the local pink granite. Morlaix has many royal connections.
Mary, Queen of Scots passed through Morlaix in the 16th century and the Duchess of Brittany (who was then Queen of all France) visited Morlaix in 1508. She is reputed to have stayed at the Maison de la Reine Anne - which is one of the town's most beautiful houses.
The Bay of Lannion will impress you. One enormous beach stretches from St Michel en Greve to Plestin les Greves and acrosss to Locquirec, at low tide you can walk hundreds of metres out onto the sands.
The town itself has good shopping and is quite pretty with many half timbered houses. It is worth climbing the 142 steps leading to the Eglise de Brelevenez - the views from the bell tower terrace are superb.
Rose Granite Coast. Unusual rock formations shaped by the wind, including Napoleons hat!
Monts D Arree In the centre of Brittany is a wild windswept moorland area which is very atmospheric and has several museums with the theme of Breton culture and nature.
Treguier is one of the few hill towns in Brittany. The Cathedrale de St Tugdal is where the tomb of St Yves lay. St Yves was the patron saint of lawyers - because he was renowned for his incorruptibility!
Perros Guirec & Ploumanac'h
Perros Guirec is a very popular seaside resort with a pleasant harbour and safe sandy beaches.
The area is reputed to have the best stretch of the Pink Granite Coast and is particularly spectacular when the sun is setting. There are plenty of coastal walks in the area. A small ferry operates from here to Les Sept Iles throughout the year.
There are many market days in the areas, but we hope that these will give you a start and also a flavour of Breton life.

"Fun, beautiful but musty"
Really loved this house and the kids had a great time there. The area is pretty and many places within close drive- charming seaside towns and good seafood. The house is musty and could use a few dehumidifiers running-I had allergy issues with the mold.
