Mael Carhaix - a traditional village

Inland central Brittany, where the little village of Mael Carhaix is set, is not hectic and buzzing like the tourist centres of the coast, yet is within easy reach of them for days out. Mael Carhaix is a very traditional village, charming and unspoiled, where it is possible to live an uncomplicated life while enjoying excellent access to all the important towns of the region. The village is attractive and friendly, and lies in the typically gentle, pretty countryside of the inland Côtes d'Armor.

Handy for shops

The village of Mael Carhaix isn't large, but it has some handy little shops which include a newsagents (you can get English papers but it's best to order in advance) a couple of boulangeries for the essential taste of fresh baguettes and croissants in the mornings, and a small supermarket where you can buy most of the basic provisions. There's a pharmacy and a post office too, so you certainly don't have to leave the village every day just to access the necessities of life. The little luxuries are also catered for, with a bar and a restaurant in the village. Of course, there will be times when you want to travel to a larger town with more facilities, but this isn't a problem as there are several nearby.

Fish and chips anyone?

When you leave Britain for France you could be forgiven, perhaps, for occasionally feeling a nostalgic pang for the UK's favourite supper, fish and chips. Well, if you are in Mael Carhaix on Wednesday evenings you won't have a problem, as there is a mobile chippy van which turns up to bring you the taste of Britain that you miss!

Village lake

In the centre of Mael Carhaix there is a large lake, surrounded by well cared for gardens. It's not just a pretty addition to the village scene, it's actually a great little outdoor leisure centre, with its inviting sandy beach and play equipment for the kids. The lake allows you to swim, sunbathe, fish, potter in a pedalo or just enjoy watching your happy kids at play!

Additional activities on offer

Near the village there are a variety of sports and leisure activities you can try, and these include golf, horse-riding, cycling and sailing.

Property prices and availability in and around Mael Carhaix

In general, prices can be high in the Côtes d'Armor, as the department is highly sought after for reasons which are obvious once you have been there! The coastline is glorious, the countryside beautiful, the culture exciting and colourful and the people welcoming... and I haven't even mentioned the food!

If you haven't got a fortune to spend, though, don't be deterred, especially if you are prepared to do a little imaginative renovation work.
