About the Area

The nearby coastline
The nearby coastline

The village of Plouezoc'h has a beautiful old church, a good boulangerie, a nice café/créperie and a small supermarket all within walking distance. There are open air markets nearly every day in nearby villages and two big supermarkets within a ten minute drive. Plouezoc'h is situated on the beautiful bay of Morlaix, which is dotted with small islands. There are many boat trips available to explore the bay. One of the islands has a fortress, the Chateau de Taureau which was built in the 16th century to protect Morlaix from the British.

Also nearby, the beautiful old town of Morlaix has many interesting buildings and a huge market. Within a fifteen minute drive, there are many sandy beaches which are safe for swimming. It is a great area for walkers, with a well-marked coastal path along the rugged coast line, which is a great way to see birds and wildlife. At the nearest beach, Kerarmel, there is a cultivated oyster bed where fresh oysters can be bought. Close by is the "grand cairn de Barnenez", a 72-metre long neolithic burial mound with 11 chambers. This area has many interesting old churches as well as a lovely old chateau, Kerjean, which hosts interesting exhibitions. Sailing and horse riding are available nearby.

The town of Morlaix

Brittany is well known for its magnificent and unspoilt coastline and sandy beaches. Plan a day-trip to Brest, home of the biggest aquarium in France. An hour's drive south is the ancient forest of Huelgoat, a source of Arthurian legends. A river runs through the bolder-strewn forest, leading to a beautiful lake. Brittany is famous for its seafood, cheese and cider, and there are lots of great restaurants where visitors can discover the regional cuisine. The weather in Brittany changes very quickly from hot and sunny to showers, often all in the same day. The temperature in summer is usually between 20°-30° C.
