Corlay - a lively town with excellent amenities

Corlay, a market town lying in the north-west of France in the popular Côtes d'Armor department of Brittany, is a lively and well appointed town. Whilst not especially large, having a population of around 1,000 permanent residents, it is a town that offer all mod cons. It has excellent schools, health care facilities and leisure attractions too. It even offers some interesting history, with a ruined castle to explore.

Shopping and dining in Corlay

For a small town, Corlay offers excellent shopping and a great selection of restaurants to enjoy too... and as you are in Brittany, with its wonderful gastronomy of fresh seafood, then you really should try the mussels and oysters that are so highly acclaimed here. (OK, Corlay is not actually on the coast, but nowhere in Brittany is far from the sea, and fresh seafood is considered a must have in all parts of the region.) For a simpler repast, there are the superbly tasty (and popular with the kids) Breton crepes, which can be eaten plain, stuffed with savoury fillings such as cheese, or sweet, with lemon juice and sugar, or chocolate sauce and nuts.

A bit of Breton history

Corlay may have all the modern pleasures and necessities of life, but it also has some real Breton history. There is an old (15th century) chateau, or castle, and although it is in ruins these days, it is still interesting to see. This is often the setting for festivals and concerts in summer, and thus Corlay celebrates its history as well as its culture.

Out and about

There are lots of sports and other activities you can enjoy in and near Corlay. The nearby Lake Guerledan is close to the town, and this huge expanse of water offers the possibility to sail, swim, fish, water ski, wind surf, canoe, or simply sunbathe and picnic on its lovely beaches. Nearby there is also horse-riding, cycling, tennis and golf. If you are keen to discover more of Brittany (and who wouldn't be?) you can always make your way to the coast, or to some of the many wonderful mediaeval towns such as Dinan, where the incredible history of the area is in plain evidence.

How to get there

If you like to fly, it is simple to take a flight to Dinard or Brest. Dinard is served by Ryanair and Aurigny, while Brest is served by Ryanair and flybe. Travelling by rail will take you to St Brieuc, and of course, Brittany Ferries will get you to the port of St Malo.

Property prices and availability in and around Corlay

The Côtes d'Armor is often said to be an expensive department, as it is very popular with the holiday market as well as the foreign property market... and indeed, also with French second home buyers. Towns such as Corlay, however, that lie a little way inland, tend to offer better value for money, so if you are working to a budget you may like to consider Corlay.
