Matignon - a bustling market town

Matignon is located in the soft rolling countryside of northern Brittany, beside the coast and beaches of the Côtes d'Armor department. It is a bustling small market town which offers excellent amenities and easy access to the UK, being only some 40 minutes away from the port of St Malo. There is a lively atmosphere to life in Matignon, set against a very traditional and typically Breton appearance, with granite houses and sunny squares where you can sit and watch life pass by, Matigonnais style.

Supermarkets, shops and services

Whereas some small towns in France have only the most basic of services, this is not the case with Matignon. The little town is extremely well equipped with shops, supermarkets and all the usual services, and the weekly market (held on Wednesdays throughout the year) provides an opportunity to enjoy the traditional French way of doing the shopping! There are also numerous fêtes and events taking place especially during the summer months.

Wining and dining in Matignon

Wining and dining will not pose a problem here either, as you can find good bars, cafés and restaurants in and near this little town. Unlike some coastal towns, Matignon does not fall asleep during the winter months, and retains its buzzing atmosphere providing year round interest whether you are holidaying here or settling down to a new life in Brittany.

What to do and see

Being situated so near to the coast means that days at the seaside are almost obligatory. Matignon lies just some seven miles from the fabulous fine sand beaches of the Emerald coast, and the port town of St Malo is only some forty minutes away for great shopping. Dinan is another popular destination, with its ancient walls and mediaeval ambience, and the countryside around the town provides opportunities to discover ruined châteaux, historical sites and beautiful landscapes.

Sports and leisure

There is a good variety of outdoor sports available in the locality, and many of these, such as sailing, fishing and swimming are found at the coast. The area also offers horse-riding, golf, tennis, walking and cycling. For those with a less sporty inclination there are museums, art galleries and character towns and villages to explore. Matignon's Tourist Office can supply you with all the information you need to make the most of this lovely part of Brittany.

How to get there

The nearest international airport is at Dinard, and you can fly there direct with Ryanair or Aurigny Air. Ferry travel is another good way to reach Matignon, with the port of St Malo very near. Drivers will find Matignon situated at the intersection of the D13 and D786.

Property prices and availability in and around Matignon

Brittany is a popular destination, especially for British property seekers, so prices in coastal towns such as Matignon can tend to be high. There are bargains to be had, though, so it is worth keeping a close eye on the market.
