Local Area

The Brittany holiday cottage is nestled in the small hamlet of Kerbourbon just 3 miles from the market town of Baud.

The River Tarun with its trout fishing is only 100 metres away.

Baud has a fair range of social outlets including a cinema, a nightclub called 'Le Podium 2000' and a selection of restaurants and pubs. Also within the town is a 25 m indoor swimming pool with slide and tennis courts.

There are 3 supermarkets, Carrefour, Lidl and Intermarche plus some wonderful bakeries open 7 days per week providing fresh baguettes,croissants and fabulous pastries.

Horse riding and 6 golf courses are all close by to the cottage.

Just 5 minutes away from the cottage is the Camors adventure forest which is a great day out for all ages.The course is colour coded similar to a ski slope in that the black course is very hard and is definitely for the fit and brave. Its highly recommended and guest staying at the holiday cottage can enjoy a 10% discount at the adventure park.

Also just 10 minutes away is the newly opened Kingoland which is a theme park for the children to enjoy.

Restaurants in the market town of Baud

What ever your taste there is plenty of choice of restaurants in Baud from the best of French cuisine, too wonderful crepes, Pizza and Chinese.To mention 3 of our favorites:

Auberge du Cheval Blanc renowned in the area, specializing in sea food dishes, offers set menu's ranging from 3 course meals at 18 euros or for those with a big appetite a 5 course menu for 36 euros.

La Taverne is situated just outside Baud but is only 2 miles from the cottage. The restaurant offers a wide range of different main courses and also offers a 3 course menu for 18 euros.

Just 10 minutes from the cottage we have recently discovered a wonderful restaurant the Au Coin Du Feu on the outskirts of Camors which specialises in cooking over an open wood fire and has a wonderful terrace to enjoy alfresco dining in the summer months.

Medieval town of Josselin

The picturesque medieval town of Josselin is 25 miles from the holiday cottage and was the dynastic home of the Rohan family throughout the middle ages.

There are many tourist attractions in this historic town including the fantastic 12th century turreted Chateau overlooking the Oust river and many 16th century half-timbered buildings and the gargoyled Basilique Notre Dame du Roncier with its beautiful 15th century stained glass windows.

Every Bastille Day 14th July Josselin recounts its historic past with the hugely popular Festival Medieval when the whole town dresses up in period costume.

Vannes is just 25 miles from the cottage

Modern Vannes is such a large and thriving community that the old walled town at its core Vieux Vannes, may come as a surprise.Its focal point, the old gateway of the Porte St-Vincent, commands a busy little square at the northern end of the long canalized port that provides access to the Gulf De Morbihan.

Once inside the ramparts, the old centre of chaotic streets with exposed timber dwellings crammed around the 14th century cathedral is a wonderful sight, filled with shops, restaurants and coffee bars. Market days are held on Wednesday and Saturday morning.

Napoleonic Pontivy is just 15 miles away.

With its contrasting Medieval, Napoleonic and modern day areas the town of Pontivy with its fortified 15th century chateau overlooking the river Blavet is another great place to visit.

Auray and its port of St-Goustan / Lorient

A must to visit while staying at the Brittany holiday cottage is Auray especially on a Monday where you can enjoy a thriving French market then have lunch in one of the many restaurants within the old port of St-Goustan.

At Lorient there is a great beach Larmor plage which has many restaurants and bars lining the beach - across from there you can see the Nazi submarine base on the other side of the estuary which can provide an insight in to Nazi maga structures of world war II. It was the Nazi U boat base for the Atlantic fleet and was the cause 90% of Lorient was destroyed during the war yet the base remained intact.

On a lighter note just north of Lorient is the Zoo de Pont-Scorff which provides another great day out.

The Gulf de Morbihan, Carnac and Quiberon

The coast of southern Brittany is truly spectacular with wonderful beaches and many tourist attractions including the famous Carnac stones and the many islands scattered within the Gulf. You can take boat tours from Vannes, Auray, Lorient and Quiberon to explore the islands and coastline. Sailing, scuba diving, kayaking and kite surfing are just a few of the sports available to enjoy.

Driving along the coast its very easy to find secluded beaches away from the crowds where you can relax and soak up the sun or enjoy the clean waters that surround the coast.

French markets via the Brittany Holiday Cottage

If you enjoy the atmosphere of a typical French market its possible to see a different market every day of your holiday,many of which situated in some stunning locations full of history and charm. I will be happy to assist on recommendations and advice.

The Gulf de Morbihan and why its so popular

The Golf de Morbihan has its own micro climate and enjoys some wonderful weather allowing holiday makers to truly enjoy the attractions Brittany has to offer, making Brittany one of the most popular regions of France for people to enjoy there holidays.
