Mûr de Bretagne - a charming village in the heart of Brittany

The market village of Mûr de Bretagne is located in the very heart of Brittany, in the south of the Côtes d'Armor department. The village has some considerable charm, being of a size that offers great facilities for both the necessities of life and the pleasures, yet not so big that its peaceful charm is wrecked by over commercialisation.

Mûr de Bretagne is no sleepy backwater either, for although it is a calm and tranquil way of life that is lived here, there is also a strong pulse of real life beating within its boundaries, and a lot of fun to be had for young and old. There are fêtes and festivals a plenty, especially through the summer months, when the village is delighted to introduce you to its culture, history and traditions, often in a very colourful and musical fashion.

Amenities and beyond

Each week, in the summer, there is also a night market held here. This is an experience truly not to be missed, with local crafts people showcasing their wares in a very convivial atmosphere.

Culture

For those who love art and history, there is the beautiful Chapelle Ste Suzanne, a lovely chapel that is not only worth viewing for its 18th century paintings found in the tower and on its ceilings, but also for its setting, at the end of an avenue of glorious oaks, which proved inspirational for the artist Carot.

Out and about

Those who love outdoor activities will love the possibilities suggested by the fabulous Lake Guerledan, which lies close to the village. Here you can partake in any number of water sports, from water skiing and sailing to swimming and fishing, or you may just want to simply chill out in the sun on the sandy beaches. Who says you have to go to the seaside for great swimming and beaches? Of course, if you do want to visit the seaside, there is no problem, as nowhere in Brittany is too far from the sea to enjoy a day out at the coast! There are many lovely towns and villages to visit in the region too, and the location of Mûr de Bretagne in the south of the department means that you are also close to the manifold attractions of the Morbihan department.
