Quintin - a weaving town

The old weaving town of Quintin, in the Côtes d'Armor department of Brittany, is full of original charm, offering plenty to see and do. Quintin is set in beautiful, lush green countryside, beside the River Gouet and within easy striking distance (about ten minutes!) of the coastal town of St Brieuc. Aside from its glorious location, Quintin is notable for being one of France's "petites cités de caractère", meaning that it is a place of historical interest.

Excellent facilities allowing you to enjoy life

Quintin is quite a lively town, and has excellent facilities that help to take the stress out of daily life. You don't have to leave town to find good local shops, supermarkets and even a traditional street market, which sets up its colourful stalls every Tuesday morning. The town also boasts banks, schools, health care and all other essential services. When it comes to enjoying life in Quintin, once the shopping is taken care of, you will find a good selection of bars and restaurants, a swimming pool, a pretty lake and delightful riverside walks.

Explore Quintin's sights and monuments

Quintin has much of historical interest, and a stroll around its old streets is a pleasure as you take in the mediaeval houses, many of which are listed, and the two chateaux. One of these can be visited, allowing you to spend a little time exploring its ornamental gardens and fabulously decorated and maintained interior. The chateau is also home to events such as Christmas markets, giving a supremely atmospheric setting!

Learn about the town's weaving heritage

Quintin was once an important weaving town and the heritage can be seen in the excellent Weaver's Museum in the town. Also on this theme is the yearly festival, the "Fête des Tisserands", held at the beginning of August. Riverside walks allow you to not only enjoy the countryside but also to see the remains of several water mills, and one, the Moulin de Perche, is still pressed into action for summer demonstrations.

St Brieuc has a great historic quarter, with half-timbered houses and an authentic ambience, and also benefits from great beaches and some of Brittany's best seafood restaurants. Further afield Dinan, a delightful walled mediaeval port city is a recommended addition to your itinerary, while inland the town of Guingamp is fascinating.
