Make a holiday rental home or cottage in Gouarec, France your home away from home.

Gouarec, France

Gouarec is a charming Breton village that is proclaimed as something of a hidden gem by its previous visitors. Located in the Cotes d’Armor department of northern Brittany, Gouarec is far enough inland to be secluded and rural, but close enough the coast to be used as a base for day trips to the beach. Cycling is the most popular way of getting around this green village, and outdoor adventure fans will be well at home in the village cottages and farmhouses.

Things to do in Gouarec, France

Gouarec is a popular destination for a cycling holiday, and with a large and reputable bicycle hire company based in the village getting out and about is an easy task. Joining an organised cycling tour is another option, and will allow you to meet like-minded individuals who are also keen to explore the countryside and put in the hard but rewarding mileage.

The unspoilt countryside really is the main draw of Gouarec holidays, with a number of nature trails and cycle paths meandering their way through the surrounding woodland before opening up to reveal some fantastic photo opportunities. Bon Repos is 5km away and the home of an excellent ruined abbey, making it a great destination for a walk, hike or cycle. Lovers of water-based sports such as canoeing, kayaking and fishing should consider Lake Guerledan, which is around an hour away by bike.

Gouarec has more than adequate amenities to look after its self-catering tourists, with a small supermarket, several bars, a bakery and a couple of other basic shops to be found. There are also a couple of excellent restaurants, with food extremely well priced compared to more tourist-orientated destinations nearer to the coast, and often coming with a complimentary glass of the excellent local wine.

Places to visit on holiday in Gouarec, France

Rostrenen (11km) is a popular destination for a day visit, as it lies in an attractive location on the banks of the Mael Carhaix Lake and is the home of a sizeable street market. The north coast of Brittany is around an hour away by car, and has a number of interesting and enjoyable potential destinations. An example is Plerin (54km).

Weather in Gouarec, France

The climate in Gouarec is similar to the climate in Great Britain, with summers generally warm and sunny and winters cold and often wet. As a result, the most popular period for a holiday in the village is the stretch between April and September, when you can be reasonably confident of low rainfall and some sunshine.

Cute cottage, a haven of peace.

5 of 5
Carl is a great host - he came out to fetch us in the dark and the rain when we got lost! He and Belinda also left a welcome pack in the kitchen which was lovely to start us off. The cottages and their setting are beautiful - we were on a house-hunting trip and really sad we didn't have time to walk in the woods or say hi to Carl's pig! We may have to stay again to take advantage of the heated swimming pool (not running in February!!) and the patio with a view of the woods where we only managed a brief cup of coffee. Hazel Cottage was cute, clean, well-equipped and a haven of peace in our busy schedule. The information file in the cottage was really useful to help us find our way around the area. Lac de Guerledan and Pontivy an equidistant drive. Nearby town of Cleugerec was brilliant - vibrant small town centre with cafes, bakers, creperie, market etc. and the supermarket was open Sunday morning.

Wonderful stay in an exceptional location

5 of 5
The accommodation was a real home from home and no effort was spared to make us comfortable. The children loved the b ikes and trips on the river in the boat.

Perfect place for an peaceful, relaxing getaway

5 of 5
My boyfriend and I stayed here for 5 nights during the first week of January and had the most perfect week. Despite technically being 'off-season' (most of the shops, restaurants and attractions nearby were closed) we enjoyed plenty of long walks, bike rides and many hours spent relaxing in front of the log fire. The kitchen is very well equipped which meant we cooked most nights and with such a beautiful bath, you'll honestly never want to leave. Thanks so much for letting us into your home Adi and Daren!
