A traditional town with a lively atmosphere

The mediaeval town of Loudeac in the Côtes D'Armor department is a very pretty market town with many traditional buildings and mediaeval streets to enjoy. The weekly market, which sells the best and freshest of local produce, goes on as it has for centuries, yet despite all of this history the town is not short of modern amenities. There are excellent restaurants, cafés and shops, with plenty of banks and schools for the practicalities of everyday life. Breton gastronomy is famous for its buckwheat pancakes, or 'crêpes' and you should certainly try these while in Loudeac, washed down with a bolée of cider. (The Bretons enjoy their cider and the bolée, which looks like a small handleless cup, is the traditional way to drink it.)

Glorious countryside and a superb water park

Loudeac is set in a picture perfect landscape with Loudeac National Forest on its doorstep, and its 2,500 hectares of beautiful forestry. Perfect for cycling and horse-riding, there are 45 kilometres of marked trails to follow. The forest is a conservation zone, so it also offers a delightful cornucopia of wildlife and plants for nature enthusiasts. Children, teenagers and the young at heart will love the huge water park of Aquatides, with its 700 square metre pool, giant waterslides, fast flowing 'river' section and safe shallow play pools for the little ones. Among the more sedate activities on offer in Loudeac are golf, fishing and walking…so there really is something for everyone!

Horses for courses!

If you like horses you will enjoy being in Loudeac on the second Sunday in August, when the Fête du Cheval is held. There are processions through the town with more than 200 horses, carriages and marching bands to watch. Another date to put in the horse lover's diary is Easter time, as between March and May there are a series of race meetings held at the town's hippodrome, continuing a tradition which dates back to 1879.

How to get there

Getting to Loudeac from the UK is straightforward. You can fly to Dinard with low cost airline Ryanair, or to Brest with Flybe. If you prefer the train, you can take the Eurostar service to Paris, and then catch the TGV to Guingamp. Ferries provide another option, with several ports accessible offering sailings to and from England.

Property prices and availability in and around Loudeac

Brittany is popular with house hunters from the UK and as a result many places near to the coast are becoming very expensive. Loudeac however, being inland, is one of the few places where you can find a real bargain. It is still possible to pick up a very desirable property such as a stone farmhouse for renovation for less than half of the cost in the UK… or indeed, elsewhere in France!
