Plougras - a peaceful and calm place

The little village of Plougras is found in the countryside of the ever popular Côtes d'Armor department of Brittany, in north-west France. The granite houses, with their slate roofs and distinctive style of architecture are typically Breton, and the Breton language is still spoken by some of the older residents of the village. Plougras is a place to kick back and relax, somewhere to get away from the stresses and strains of modern life. If you are looking for a rip roaring nightlife, look elsewhere… but if calm and beautiful countryside appeals to you, this could be just the ticket.

Shops, services and historical monuments

For all its small size, Plougras has some useful small shops, with a boulangerie (excellent for those delicious baguettes and croissants), a general grocers which incorporates a small bar, and a restaurant. It's easy to access more shopping and other facilities in the nearby town of Plouaret, and here you will also be able to find schools, health services, banks and garages. While Plougras can hardly be said to be packed with historical monuments, there is an interesting church, dating from the end of the 15th century, and a 16th century chapel, both worth a look if you want to do a little sightseeing right on the doorstep.
