Make a holiday rental home or villa in Lannion, Brittany, France your home away from home

The town of Lannion is tucked into the pink granite of the Cote d’Armor, Brittany. The town undulates hugely, with twisting stairways and steep streets lined with medieval houses. However, despite the ancient appearance, Lannion is the centre of Brittany’s high tech telecommunications industry, and the influx of money has meant that property in Lannion is usually very luxurious inside, yet perfectly cosy.

Things to do on holiday in Lannion, France

There are some delightful sites to visit in Lannion. The half-timbered houses which line the Place de General-Leclerc give the whole town a quaint atmosphere, which is hard to shake as you tour the town. The most picturesque place in Lannion, which also gives you the most spectacular views across the Cote d’Armor, is the 12th Century Eglise de Brelevenez. To reach the church, you have to climb 142 granite steps from the centre of the town, but the climb is definitely worth it.

Lannion’s weekly market, which is held every Thursday, is one of the best in the whole of the Cotes d’Armor, selling local produce, crafts and antiques. The daily fish market which runs from Tuesday to Saturday is also a wonderful place to visit to stock up on provisions for your Lannion holiday.

There is always enough to entertain visitors to Lannion. There are seven or eight fantastic little bars in the town, as well as a handful of restaurants serving everything from local delicacies to international cuisine. There are also bowling alleys, regular theatrical performances and a range of summer concerts in the town square to enjoy.

A holiday rental property in Lannion is a great spot from which to enjoy the glorious beaches of Brittany. Many people are beginning to favour the beaches of Brittany to travelling down to the Cote d’Azur in southern France. Even during the very height of summer, the beaches of Brittany never get crowded, and the shallow coastline makes them perfect for families. The pink granite cliffs of the coast near Lannion are marvellous for walking too, and there are plenty of marked walks throughout the countryside. There are also some great golf courses in the area, including the 18 hole Paimpol Golf Course, which offers a great challenge for both experts and beginners.

                    Our comfortable and well equipped Breton house was a charming property in a friendly rural village.

                    We appreciated the way the cottage was provided with comfortable beds and seating, and decorated with antique pieces to create a homely lived in feel. We had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Tonquedec is well served with a boulangerie/ general store, a bar/petrol pump and a hairdresser, and the locals are friendly. It is in a peaceful rural location and nearby is its very own magnificent ruined chateau. There is easy access to a number of safe, quiet and beautiful beaches for swimming within half an hour's drive, our favourite being Tregastel-Plage (Greve Blanche).There are several other quiet little coves around that peninsula which are delightful for swimming and can be easily accessed from beautiful footpaths, and parking is plentiful and free. We would also highly recommend Ploumanach and the Sentier des Douaniers, the footpath which skirts that penisula and provides a view of the pink rock formations after which the Cote Granite Rose is named. You can enjoy a delicious lunch in the little centre in Ploumanach after your walk. Please do not miss the sculpture park in Ploumanach where pink granite has been carved into fantastic shapes. There are great photo opportunities there and good parking and toilets. Other places really worth a visit are: the area from Saint-Michel -en- Greve to Loquirec with its rocky shore, the estuary at Le Yaudet, the beatiful ancient town of Treguier, and the Thursday market in Lannion. This is a really lovely place for a spring, summer or autumn visit.

                    A beautiful house in a stunning location

                    5 of 5
                    I stayed at Manoir de Kervingant in August with a family group of 12, including children aged 5-19. It was an amazing holiday. The house is well-appointed and beautifully renovated. The kitchen had everything we needed and could think of needing, bedrooms all had comfortable beds and a good number of bathrooms. The children oscillated between jumping in the splash pool, cycling round the field, stroking and talking to the donkeys, playing table tennis / badminton, and 'having a relax' on the sun loungers! We loved having dinner outside on the terrace and watching the sun go down over the trees, and then at night star-gazing. The wifi was good enough even for our 19 year old to be happy! We spent a lot of time at the beach at Locquirec, and particularly loved the Sunday market in Plestin--les-Greves - go and buy a chicken & roast potatoes, you won't be disappointed! We hope to return to Kervingant in the future; I am sure it would make a wonderfully cosy Winter break as well as a perfect summer holiday house.
