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.

                                                              This is a really lovely house. The pictures do not do it justice. It is extremely clean and very well equipped. There is absolutely everything you need. The main bedroom was really nice with exposed beams and a stone wall with a large comfortable bed. The bathroom is nice with a big walk in shower that was very powerful. It is possible to park at the house and it takes only a minute to walk to the port and 5 minutes up into Auray. Such a lovely area. I would highly recommend this house and the area.

                                                              Amazing 5 star house in Quiberon

                                                              The owners Cristophe and his wife who own this villa are very charming. We stayed for a week with my husband, friend and 3 children and we had an amazing time. Basically everything is catered for at this villa whether you are a toddler, teenager or adult. If you wish to go out in the town centre then its a quick 5 min walk otherwise you could enjoy the house all day without leaving it as the heated pool and Jacuzzi are very luxurious!! When it comes to the kitchen literally everything has been thought of and all you need to do is bring your own food. There is a market every Sat that provides fresh fish and shellfish and there are several supermarkets nearby as well. The villa has all the latest gadgets with a database of the latest movies and x-box games to play. When we did have a query Cristophe was very quick to deal with it. We cannot recommend this highly enough. The best villa we've ever stayed at!!

                                                              A magical experience!

                                                              If you would like to be away from the noise of the city and to be totally relaxed, this is definitely the place for you. I felt very peaceful waking up every morning to bird song during my stay. I thoroughly enjoyed my week and only wish I could have stayed longer. The house was exactly how I imagined it from the photos on the website and the other reviews. It was a very charming and comfortable place to stay. The facilities were great too, all the rooms are nice and have lovely views. The location of the house is fantastic, it is walking distance to the nearest beach. The beach is small and not at all crowded (I was there in the middle of June). The water is tranquil and it is a beautiful place to swim. I collected many shells and stones and lost track of time it was so lovely. It is easy to get to the famous harbour by car from the house and the local people were very friendly. There are lots of bars and restaurants to enjoy. Don't forget to try the cugnaman cakes (famous cakes from this region) during your stay. I will definitely return in summer next time, and highly recommend staying here!
