Things to do in Erquy

It’s hard to deny the allure of the sea when visiting Erquy. Even in modern times, the Bretons themselves maintain a culture that is closely tied to their maritime heritage. Erquy and its surroundings offers visitors the opportunity to sample amazing local seafood, as well as some of the most recognisable landmarks in all of France.

-Mont Saint Michel has long been one of the premier attractions of France.This stunning abbey sits on the border of Brittany and Lower Normandy on a rocky tidal island. Dating back to the 11th century, the abbey here is still active despite being named a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Below its imposing walls is a maze of cobbled pathways filled with boutique hotels, shops, and creperies.

-Saint Malo is less than an hour’s drive from holiday villas in Erquy and is a well-preserved medieval walled port city that is very popular with tourists. In addition to the striking architecture and lovely views of the sea, this is a good place to sample local oysters and other classic Breton cuisine.

-Dinard is often called the ‘Cannes of the North’ and is popular for its beaches. Made famous in the 19th century as a holiday destination for aristocrats, it still enjoys a steady stream of visitors who come here to lay out under the summer sun and soak in the cafe culture. The best beach in town is Plage de l’Ecluse, which benefits from warm gulf stream temperatures.

-The Port of Erquy is Brittany at its finest. Small fishing vessels make their way in and out of this small port daily, continuing a maritime tradition that goes back more than 1000 years. The waters here are crystal clear and this is an ideal place to enjoy fresh seafood prepared using classic Breton cooking techniques. You can also pick up fresh fish and seafood to make your own delicious Breton dish in your Erquy holiday home kitchen.

-Cap Frehel is a popular hiking and cycling destination offering some of the best scenery in the region. Flanked by a lighthouse and a 14th century fort, winding trails take visitors through soaring coastal cliffs and small deserted beaches.

The Weather in Erquy

Warmed by the gulf stream, Erquy enjoys a fairly temperate climate. The best time to visit is probably May through October, when high temperatures average about 18°C. However, with the gulf stream comes rain, and the region receives around 15 days of rain each month, regardless of the season. Winters in Erquy are chilly, but temperatures rarely fall below freezing.

Getting to Erquy

There is a popular ferry route that runs from Portsmouth to St. Malo, which is just 45 km from holiday homes in Erquy. There are also two airports in the region, Dinard Pleurtuit Saint-Malo Airport and Lorient South Brittany Airport, that both receive direct flights from various cities in the UK.

Delightful Property In Great Location

5 of 5
I have recently returned from staying in this property over the New Year period. We chose it because of its flexible accommodation: we were two families, one with two teenagers and the other with two grown up children. The bedroom arrangements worked well for us as did the bathrooms all of which are beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well equipped which was good as we ate in a couple of times and the large table seated 8 of us so no problems there. The living area was cosy and although it wasn't the right time of year to be outside, the patio/bbq area looked like it would be perfect for summer evenings. The house is conveniently located a short walk from Dahouet Port/Pleneuf val Andre with its shops and restaurants. This was important to us as we didn't want to have to drive all the time. We did have a slight issue with the heating early in our stay but Dave the owner, was very quick to resolve this for us and offered to return if there were any other issues, which there weren't. I would recommend this property to families/groups looking for a larger property in this location. Dave and Isobelle looked after us well and we would happily return. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay and all the best for 2017.

Our stay in Val Andre Sep 2016

5 of 5
The appartment was modern, bright, clean, comfortable and central - as well as private and quite peaceful, given that we were just off the main thoroughfare. Situated within a couple of minutes walk of the promenade, the beautiful and safe white sandy beach and the restaurants, it is a very convenient location. The owner knew a little English and we knew a little French so we had an uncomplicated hand-over at arrival and departure. It has to be said that not all French properties have central heating, but this one had - we did not need it as the weather was warm and sunny, but early morning and evening we did appreciate the ladder radiator in the bathroom. We have holidayed in Brittany at least twice a year for many years, so we take the Breton way of life for granted, but it is a beautiful area with friendly people - the bread and wine are excellent and the produce fresh. Go on, try it! You have to drive on the other side of the road, but the beauty of the area is that once off the ferry and in your holiday resort, the roads are quite quiet. Very relaxing! Visit Erquy market Saturday mornings, go to Carrefours in St. Brieuc for shopping, with a very good value lunch at Flunch (with veg you can help yourself to) or go to Buffalo Grill nearby for a decent steak. The coastline is enchanting, the interior is rural, most restaurants offer Le formule (an economical three course meal)- and try a visit to a brocante - you will be surprised at what you find.

Perfect house with amazing garden

5 of 5
Daniel and his wife made us feel very welcome on arrival. The house was perfect for our stay and well equipped. The garden was large and had various seating areas to eat/relax in. The little touches - flowers in the kitchen and bathrooms, a bottle of local cider and a box of biscuits added something special. The house is well located, 15 minute walk to some of the nicest beaches ever. The coastline is beautiful and the beaches uncrowded. Erquy is a quiet town with several good seafood restaurants by the port. I would highly recommend a stay in Daniel's house. We are looking forward to coming back already!
