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.

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.

It was very clean, with a beautiful kitchen, and bathroom. We would certainly go again, and recomend it to anyone. It was one of our best Stays. Auray is a great place. The port with all the Restaurants and Artists. The town its self, with the fish market, open everyday, and a great market by the church, Monday and Friday. Good shopping, and plenty of places to visit, not to far away, including Vannes Port, market day Wednesday, and Point Avon only a short drive, also Trinity le Mer, for boat Enthusiast.

The beds are comfortable the view is perfect and its only a short walk to the shops restaurants bars and cafe's. The Harbor and bay are perhaps the best in the area with lots to see do.

The garden was secure and flat with no steep steps or surprises which allowed our 2 and 4 year old to play on their scooters for ages without us having to worry or leave the hot tub! The swimming pool was lovely and with the added security of being enclosed with a lockable door. All the bedrooms were large in size and the outside decking with BBQ was perfect for the evenings. The house is about 10 minute drive to Carnac which is a lovely seaside town with lovely safe beaches. Marie was very helpful and met us at the times agreed.
