Guenroc - village of the rock

Guenroc is a small village lying inland in the Côtes-d'Armor department. The village appears to have taken its name from the large, silver-white quartz rock that is found to the village's north, and which is quite a remarkable feature of the landscape. All around Guenroc you can find an unspoilt countryside with the Rance River running through, where lakes and woodlands abound and historic towns and villages hide in the folds of the land.

Caulnes and Broons within easy reach

Being such a small village means that there aren't any shops or services available, but Caulnes is close by which has a supermarket, as well as shops and some services, and there is also Broons which offers much more, with cafés, bars and restaurants to enjoy.

A rich heritage

And although Guenroc is tiny, it benefits from a rich natural and built heritage nevertheless. The mediaeval church is always a focal point and worth a visit, but there are many other old buildings of interest too. Most of the village houses are original, and there are also old market halls, a 16th century manor, remains of grand residences and, of course, the famed white quartz rock. This is topped with a cross, and is thought to have been a point of worship in days gone by. From the top of the quartz mound you have a commanding view of the Rance Valley.

Outdoor activities available

The natural heritage meanwhile offers a glorious countryside, with lakes, dams, woodland trails and the beautiful Rance River. Activities to enjoy near to Guenroc include golf, sailing, swimming, fishing, horse-riding and walking.

Close to the coast

Guenroc is indeed an inland village, lost, seemingly, in its rural surroundings, yet it is but half and hour or less from the coast with all the seaside fun you might expect of such a popular holiday spot. The ferry port of St Malo is a handy arrival point and so much more besides, having an historic quarter, fabulous beaches and plenty of shopping, dining and other entertainment for all ages.

Visit fascinating Dinan

Following the course of the river from Guenroc you come to one of Brittany's best loved attractions: the mediaeval town of Dinan. Here, the timber-framed houses bank the narrow, twisty streets so typical of the period, and the river port is never less than a fascinating hub of life.

How to get there

The little airport at Dinard provides a great arrival point from the UK if you like the ease of flying, or there is Rennes in neighbouring Ille-et-Vilaine. Dinard is served by Ryanair and Aurigny, while Rennes is served by Flybe. The ferry port of St Malo is perfect for those who prefer to travel by ferry and arrive with a car for getting about. Drivers can find Guenroc lying just off the D39, not far from the N12.

Property prices and availability in and around Guenroc

Property in the Côtes-d'Armor can be on the dear side, as the department is so popular with second home seekers both from the UK and many other countries. However, the highest prices are usually placed on property in the best known towns and at the coast, so travelling inland to a little place like Guenroc can save you quite a bit of money.
