Le Gîte Au Manoir

Le Gîte Au Manoir, Plusquellec, Côtes-d'Armor

. . .      the perfect destination for a relaxing holiday in Central Brittany

 

 

 

 

 

The lake at Callac, just five minutes' walk down the hill from your holiday home. Callac - the start of the annual Pierre le Bigaut cycle event - more than seven thousand cyclists take part in June each year. The Presidial at Guerlesquin, a "petite cite de charactere" twenty minutes' drive from Le Gite Au Manoir An hour's drive to the northwest of your holiday home lies the pretty coastline at Santec. Just over an hour's drive to the south lies the coastal resort of Benodet. The port of Roscoff, very pretty at any time of the year, is the venue for the Fete des Oignons Roses towards the end of August. The Fete des Vieux Metiers is a celebration of traditional crafts, and takes place in early August each year at Tregrom, half-an-hour away from your self-catering holiday home. The beautiful rock formations at Saint Guirec, less than an hour's drive away on Brittany's northern "Granite Rose" coast.  It was voted France's favourite holiday spot in a poll in 2015. The church at Plougonven is situated within an Enclos Paroissial, of which there are a dozen or more in northern Finistere.  They are well worth a visit. If you like oysters, then take a trip to the Port de Belon on the southern Brittany coast to sample the famous Belon oysters.  Delicious! Fifteen minutes away from Le Gite Au Manoir, on a hill overlooking the Breton countryside, is La Vallee des Saints.  It is populated by giant granite statues (three or four metres tall) of Breton saints.  It is intended that, eventually, there will be more than a thousand such figures! The church of St Ronan at Locronan.
Situated in the southwest corner of Brittany, Locronan is a medieval town that attracts visitors from far and wide.  A visit can be combined with a trip to the dramatic Pointe de la Torche. Altenatively, take a five minute stroll along the road from the gite and you'll  come across a family of alpacas!  Three of them are pictured here.
