Make a holiday rental villa or property in Auray, Morbihan, France your home away from home

The medieval town of Auray, Brittany, and its surrounding countryside is a wonderfully peaceful place to take a holiday rental property for your holidays. With a huge range of historical attractions ranging from pre-history right through to the monuments of WWII, Auray has enough to keep anyone with even a feint interest in history occupied for a very long time. This, combined with the beautiful countryside that has made Morbihan famous has made the Auray region of Brittany one of the most popular with visitors.

Things to do on holiday in Auray, France

Among the finest attractions in Auray is the restored medieval centre of the town. Less crowded and just as impressive as the famous town of Vannes, Auray is a delight to visit. The Place de la Republique in the centre is a fine example of medieval architecture, with the 18th century town hall and Church de St Gildas creating a lavish, elegant feel. The fifteenth century houses in the St Goustan district of Auray are well worth seeing too.

The Auray coast of Morbihan is a delightful mix of rugged cliffs and small sandy beaches known as the Cote Sauvage (Wild Coast). The best bathing beaches are on the south and east of the peninsula, which are more sheltered during times of high wind offshore. If you are heading to the coast to surf, you will not be disappointed. Sailing, scuba diving and underwater photography courses also thrive in the area.

Many people arrive into Auray for the walking, cycling and horse riding. Auray is an ideal place for trekking, especially on horse back, as there are over 2,000km of bridle paths from the beaches to the forests, as well as many stables offering hirelings and guided tours of the countryside. Horse riding in Auray is absolutely exceptional, but if you would prefer to stay on your feet, don’t worry; there are more marked footpaths in Brittany than in any other region of France.

Fishing also thrives in the Auray region of Brittany. The River Blavet passes through the town of Auray, and there are no less than seven other salmon fishing rivers in the area. Lake fishing for perch, carp and pike is readily available, and you can get a holiday fishing permit for around 15 Euros.

There are also 5 18 hole golf courses in the Auray area, the finest of which is probably the Ploemeur-Ocean club. With challenging holes and spectacular coastal scenery, the Ploemeur Golf course is one of the most enjoyable courses to play for a great distance.

Places to visit on holiday in Auray, France

Camors is a delightful town on the banks of the River Blavet. Perfect for walking, cycling, canoeing and horse riding in Auray, Camors accommodation is an ideal place to retreat in Morbihan. The town is also home to one of the last remaining Breton clog maker.

Erdeven is a great beach resort in Auray. The 7 km Atlantic beach is a huge asset and the stunning prehistoric sites of Mane-Croch, Crucuno and Mane-Bras with their mystical megaliths attract a huge number of visitors each year.

Weather in Auray, France

Summers in Auray are blissfully warm, ideal for horse riding and walking on the beaches or in the shaded forests of the interior. With average temperatures of around 25°C in July and August, conditions are perfect for a warm beach holiday without becoming too hot.

Travel to Auray, France

Reaching a self catering Auray cottage or gite is very easy. Whether you decide to take a ferry or aeroplane, you can be settling into your Auray accommodation within hours of leaving home. Rennes Airport (ZFJ) receives a large number of cheap flights from across the UK, provided by Ryanair, Flybe and British Airways.

Holiday in Etel, 29 September- 11October

5 of 5
The description and photographs of the apartment were accurate,the location good, the layout worked perfectly. It was very well equipped, spotless and well maintained. The owner was very helpful, generous and keen that we would enjoy our holiday. I will be happy to recommend it to others. Etel proved to be a perfect location for visiting many places within a short distance - beaches, villages, historical sites, ports and chateaux. Local shopping was easy with several good bakers and a supermarket in the town. The following restaurants provided very good meals with friendly staff-BB and Chaloupe.

Excellent house with sea views

5 of 5
We have just returned to the UK after a lovely stay at this property in Carnac. We are familiar with the area and I wanted to rent a house as close to the beach as possible. I must say, the owners are very friendly and charming who made us feel very welcome throughout the duration of our stay. The house itself does have stunning views of the sea as highlighted by previous reviewers. To wake up and have breakfast with glorious sea views is a perfect start to the day. The interior of the house is very clean and having 3 bathrooms is extremely handy after taking 2 kids to the beach. There is parking for your hire vehicle within a secure car park as well as off road parking if required. The beach is a 2 minute walk via an access road which runs adjacent to the house. The beach is very nice and the temperature of the water was perfect for swimming in. In terms of facilities, a short 5 minute walk will take you to the nearest restaurant and the entrance to the Grand Plage. I can also recommend Nautic Sports, also a 5 minute walk, where you can rent kayaks, paddle boards etc for very reasonable prices. Overall the quality of the property is excellent and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to any of our friends.
