Glomel - a lively Breton village

Glomel is a pretty village that is located in the north-west of France, in Brittany's Côtes d'Armor department. The village lies to the south-west of the department, making it a good base for further exploration of the region, including the neighbouring departments of Finistère and Morbihan. The countryside that surrounds Glomel is lovely, with the Nantes-Brest Canal meandering along its tranquil path close by, adding another picturesque feature to the village.

Boozers, bakers and a Breton welcome!

Glomel is a clean, attractive town with typical Breton architecture of stone and rendered cottages with grey slate roofs. It also has the typical Breton necessities of a bakery, a couple of bars, a pharmacy, a general store, a hairdressers and a restaurant.
