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.

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.

Idyllic and peaceful

5 of 5
Well-located in a small hamlet in central/south Brittany, the gîte provided a real 'get away from it all' break. The nearest village (10 mins drive) has 2 tabacs, a boulangerie and épicerie. There is a supermarket close by too. We found many places worth visiting within an hours drive - Pontivy, Port-Louis, Carnac and Quiberon as well as the lac at Mur-de-Bretagne. The gîte itself is comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen, BBQ and private garden with furniture. The bedroom does has a sloping ceiling so may present difficulties if you are tall! The information from the owners was really useful and the communication excellent. The only disappointment was the weather....!

Amazing Cottage

5 of 5
We were blown away by this property it was fantastic and the pictures on the site do not do it justice-it is beautiful. Everything was perfect and the owners were on hand and lovely if needed. Our dog Alfie had a ball for a week and I would not hesitate to recommend this property. It was a week of complete relaxation.
