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

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.

The house was perfectly located amidst rolling farmland and offered daily walks when weather permitted. Boduic was also well and centrally located for excursions elsewhere in Brittany and via Rennes rail, to Paris for short breaks. The time (1 month) was far too short!

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!
