Pontrieux - a picturesque riverside town

The town of Pontrieux is designated as a "Little City of Character", and although the term "city" may be misleading, the lovely Breton character of Pontrieux is very evident. It's a mediaeval town set on the River Trieux, giving it a delightful atmosphere and making it popular with holidaymakers in summer.

Enjoy the weekly market

Pontrieux has everything you could need available in town, with an array of small shops, cafés and restaurants. The weekly market takes place on Monday mornings, and is a great place to find local products to taste as well as to enjoy browsing the stalls and trying to decipher the brisk chatter of the stall holders, which may be in the original Breton language as well as in French!

Explore the town and the river too

Pontrieux is full of original character and features, such as the large collection of "Lavoirs" along the riverside, where the townsfolk used to gather to do their laundry and catch up on the gossip. Village squares, riverside houses, floral displays (Pontrieux is also a recognised "Town of Flowers"), original mediaeval architecture with half-timbered houses… all of these make up the experience that is Pontrieux. The river is also very popular with boating enthusiasts, and whether you wish to paddle around in a canoe or take a sight seeing cruise, seeing the area from the water is one of the best ways to discover the town and its environs.

Visit the beach and delightful Paimpol

Brittany, by its very shape, is a region with the advantage of always offering an accessible coast. Pontrieux lies inland, but the gorgeous Pink Granite Coast is just a short drive away, so beach days are always on the agenda. Places to visit in the locality include the delightful port town of Paimpol, which is accessible from Pontrieux by an old steam train, providing yet another wonderful way to enjoy discovering this picturesque corner of Brittany.

Take the ferry to Ile de Bréhat

Just a little further afield is the Ile de Bréhat, known as "the Island of Flowers" due to its being in bloom all year round, thanks to a perfect micro climate. You can take the ferry from Paimpol to the island for a really lovely day out.

How to get there

You can fly to either Brest or Dinard, served by Flybe and Ryanair, and Aurigny and Ryanair respectively, or take the ferry to St Malo or Roscoff. Drivers should look for the D787, D6 or D15, which all go to the town, with the nearest major road being the N12.

Property prices and availability in and around Pontrieux

Due to its inland location, property is more reasonable in Pontrieux than in the coastal towns of the department, although the many and obvious attractions of this town do tend to make property here rather popular! Prices are very reasonable, with opportunities to purchase properties suitable for running B&B or gîtes ventures currently available.
