Ploubalay - a peaceful market town

Ploubalay is a lovely and peaceful market town that is found just minutes from the lovely beaches of the Côtes d'Armor in Brittany in north-west France. If you are looking either to spend a holiday (or even to purchase property) in a location that is easy to reach from the UK and which is bang in the middle of the very best bits of Brittany, look no further than Ploubalay.

Well equipped so you can enjoy an easy life

Ploubalay has everything you could want from a small town, with all the amenities and services necessary for everyday life. Local shops sit alongside well stocked supermarkets, and all the essentials of French life are present and correct. There are boulangeries, a traditional market, a fresh fish shop (fish and seafood being a very special concern in Ploubalay, so near to the rich fishing grounds of the Côtes d'Armor coast!) and bars and restaurants where you can settle down to enjoy a slice of Breton life.

Don't miss the pony and donkey festival!

Ploubalay has a peaceful atmosphere, and although tourism is a factor in the town's economy, it never seems to be over run by tourists, keeping its authentic atmosphere and offering a famously friendly welcome. The delightful pony and donkey festival, held yearly in Ploubalay, is a fantastic event which families will love... especially those with horse-mad children!

Out and about

There could hardly be a better location for anyone wanting to stay or live in the Côtes d'Armor than Ploubalay. It lies conveniently close to the airport at Dinard, and also to the ferry port of St Malo, taking all the hassle out of travelling. All the most popular destinations in the region are accessible, with the Côtes d'Armor's favourite town of Dinan less than 20 kilometres away. This gorgeous mediaeval town will treat you to a glimpse of what France was like in the Middle Ages, with its charming period houses, old fortifications and winding, narrow streets.

Visit lively Lancieux

Of course proximity to the seaside is important, and although it is true to say that nowhere in Brittany is far from the sea, it is a real bonus to find yourself staying or living just minutes from the lovely beaches and lively resorts of the Emerald Coast. Lancieux, one such resort, is a very near neighbour, and is the ideal destination on a sunny, summer's day!

How to get there

The nearest airport that has direct flights from the UK is Dinard, and the good news is that budget airline Ryanair fly there, keeping costs down so you can make regular trips. Dinard is also served by Aurigny. Ploubalay is just seven kilometres from Dinard airport. The port of St Malo is best if you want to come ashore right next door to Ploubalay, being only fifteen kilometres away, but if you want more choice of ferry companies there are ferries that run from England and Ireland to all over France's northern coast line, and all are within a reasonable distance for access. The town is easily found from the D168, D768, D786 and D2 roads, with the nearest major road being the N176.
