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.

Great escape in a lovely woodland setting.

4 of 5
We had a great time here. Lots to do in the vicinity - we enjoyed a lovely bike ride along the canal. Centrally situated, it is within reach of both the north coast and alignments at Carnac. House is well stocked and the bed was very comfortable. The forest bath was an amazing experience. Bring wellies!

Full of character and well equipped

5 of 5
Very well equipped cottage in a quiet rural location but with easy access to local villages / town and the wider Brittany area. The owners are very easy to deal with, helping with not only ferries, but also local directions to help find the cottage, and a kind offer of shopping in advance. Cottage is set in its own grounds alongside another cottage owner by the same people and share a nice well furnished and heated pool which is positioned to make the absolute best of the great sunshine with plenty of open space around for games. Inside there is a well equipped kitchen space and two nicely appointed bedrooms. In short heart place to stay for exploring Brittany and a place we would definitely go back to if in this area again.
