Saint-Marcel Holiday Homes

Make a holiday rental home or farmhouse in Saint-Marcel, France your home away from home.

Saint-Marcel, France

Saint-Marcel is the name of many towns and villages around France, but this article focuses on a small village that lies in the Morbihan department of the country. At last count the village had a population of fewer than 1,000, so is not a destination for those seeking busy bars and a bustling town centre. This is a peaceful and traditional area of Morbihan, which offers its visitors rustic attractions and a chance to live life as a local for the duration of their stay.

Things to do in Saint-Marcel, France

Saint-Marcel has a small village centre that allows visitors to escape the beaten tourist track and immerse themselves in local tradition. Amenities are basic but adequate, and you will be happy to find cheaper prices than charged in some of the more tourist-orientated spots in Brittany.

The most notable landmark within the centre of Saint-Marcel is the Museum of the Breton Resistance, which focuses on the uprising of the marquis of the village (along with around 2500 men) in 1944. Saint-Marcel was a relatively important stronghold during the Second World War, and those that take the time to chat with the older locals will likely be told a story or two over a glass of the local wine.

Malestroit (3km) is the nearest village to the west, and can be reached by car in five minutes or walked in around half an hour. The attractions in Malestroit are largely the same as Saint-Marcel, with a small selection of friendly bars, authentic restaurants and family-run businesses. Malestoit also has the draw of a weekly market, providing you with the perfect opportunity to stock up the food supplies in your Saint-Marcel holiday cottage or farmhouse.

Spring and autumn are warm and largely dry, whilst summer experiences plenty of sunshine and 20°C plus temperatures on the majority of these.

The accommodation is spacious, well kitted out and well maintained. Fran and Rick are very welcoming, thoughtful and helpful at all times. They are a credit to Owners Direct. Saint-Gravé, France is well positioned for the archaeology around Carnac, and the beautiful coastline between Lorient and Saint-Nazaire. Everything is close at hand, with a hypermarket with services at nearby Malansac. Quiet roads lead to picturesque local towns such as Vannes, Josselin, La Roche-Bernard and La Gacilly. We had plenty to see and do for a fortnight, without having to travel far each day. The beaches between Lorient and Quiberon were some of the best we'd visited in Europe. All-in-all, a brilliant stay. Highly recommended. Ruth and William

Josselin is lovely with many fine walks. And a patisserie within fifty metres is a real bonus! We loved it. Rob and Shirley (Kent, UK)
