A town of unspoiled beauty

The traditional market town of Rostrenen, remains largely untouched by modern architecture and developments, and thus is thought to be one of Brittany's prettiest towns. The houses are resplendent in traditional building materials of stone and slate, and there is a welcoming feel to the town that delights tourists and residents alike. Despite this traditional feel, the town is well supplied with amenities and leisure facilities, having several supermarkets, restaurants and bars. Sports fans will be happy there too, as Rostrenen caters for most sporting tastes, having lakes for fishing and water sports, glorious countryside for walking, cycling and horse-riding, golf, and tennis clubs for the more energetic!

The crossroads of Brittany

Placed as it is, in the centre of the region of Brittany, Rostrenen forms a perfect base for exploring this lovely part of France. Although Rostrenen is in the department of the Côtes D'Armor, all three Breton coastlines are accessible, and the nearby Nantes- Brest canal adds to its charm. A varied countryside of woods, lakes and rivers ensures that there is always somewhere glorious to see, and provides a location to suit everyone.

A place for miracles

There are many old stories told of miracles which have taken place in Rostrenen, and one of the most famous of these is the tale of the statue of the Blessed Virgin found under a rose tree, in December 1300. This is still celebrated in the town today, in the festival known as the 'bod fair' (meaning ''the bush fair') on the first Tuesday of December. Another festival for which the town is well known is the Fisel Festival, which is an extravaganza of traditional Breton music and dance, both of which are held close to the heart of the town.

Being situated in northern France, Rostrenen is accessible from the UK by a variety of means of transport. The ferry ports of St Malo, Caen, Calais, Cherbourg and Roscoff all offer sailings from and to England, with Roscoff the nearest at only one hour from the town itself.
