Gouarec is a pretty town in the Cote d’Armor region in central Brittany situated on the Nantes-Brest Canal. There are a good selection of shops, bars and 3 restaurants. There are two mini markets, a boulanger, hairdresser, pharmacy, 2 banks/cash points, art gallery, brocante, a gift/home ware shop and a post office. Bike hire is available, Mini Golf and a modern heated swimming pool are all nearby. The beautiful public gardens are behind Number 7.
Rostrenen, Pontivy, Loudeac and Carhaix are all easily accessible with galleries, theatres, cinemas and a wide range of shops. We are in an ideal area for walking, cycling or just relaxing.
There are excellent cycle tracks, along the Nantes-Brest canal & the Voie Vert 6 & 7. A recent addition is a reinstated leisure railway with velo-rail, or you can walk or cycle along side the track which runs from Gouarec. You can fish on the canal, local rivers and many nearby lakes.
We are close to the Abbaye de Bon-Repos, which on Sunday morning has an artisan market. The Lac de Guerledan and Etang de Coronc at Glomel both have beaches with safe swimming areas.
Attractions such as the Vallee des Saints at Carnoet, The Resistance Museum at St Connan and The Son et Lumieres historical re-enactment sound and light show are all within easy reach.
We are centrally placed in Brittany for lots of attractions. If the coast beckons you, we are only one to one and a half hours drive North, South or West. All with beautiful stretches of coastine and sandy beaches.
Cyclists, walkers, tourists & property hunters will find Gouarec a perfect location.
We look forward to welcoming you to Number 7 !
