Autumn Inspiration

/ Blog, Promotions, Why us

Just in case you need inspiration this autumn, why not take a break with us in Brittany and see what the region has to offer.  Here is our Top 10 list of things to do….

  1. Walk along the GR34, or at least parts of it!  The GR34 is the Grand Randonee walk that goes around the whole of the Brittany Coastline. There are some magnificent parts of it to discover.  With undiscovered beaches, cycle paths, coves, disused railways, ancient lakes and the most magnificent vistas.
  2. Closeby we have Chateau Hunandaye, but why not take advantage of the quiet roads and travel a bit further a field.  There are magnificent chateaux to discover throughout Brittany.  Here are just a few.
  3. Visit Mont St Michel.  The UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Less crowds and just as beautiful at this time of year.

  4. Visit the local markets and enjoy the fresh seasonal and local produce plus it is the season for Coquilles St Jacques.
  5. Peche a Pied – translated means Fishing by Foot.  At low tide you can pick up plenty of seafood, from the aforementioned coquilles, to crabs, winkles, oysters and mussels.
  6. Visit St Malo and enjoy the fact there are less crowds, walk around the cobbled streets and the ramparts, visit the cathedrale, walk out to the fort at low tide, shop til you drop, take a tour around a tall-ship or eat at one of the many restaurants.
  7. Learn to Surf or Paddle Board.  It may be a bit colder outside by the sea is still relatively warm.  We can arrange lessons or board hire, including the wetsuits with Armor Surf School.
  8. Paddleboard, canoe or kayak up the Rance with http://www.canoe-kayak-saint-cast-le-guildo.com.  Go with the tide and enjoy the scenery, tranquility, fauna and surrounding countryside including the family of seals that have arrived this summer.
  9. Visit Dinan, hire a boat and leisurely cruise up and down the rance, visit the park and the animals, walk around the ramparts, take a ride on the Petit Train, hire a bike at the port and cycle along the car free tow-path to the Monastery at Lehon
  10. Hang out around our gites, use the heated pools, let the kids play, sit down in the autumn sun with a glass of wine, plate of cheese and make the most of being on holiday…. Or just catch up with some well needed R&R!
