Guégon - a perfect location for property buyers

Anyone seeking to buy property in southern Brittany may well find the village of Guégon a perfect location. The department of Morbihan, in which the village lies, is not only beautiful but has glorious beaches, a rich history and heritage and a good climate. Guégon itself is a very attractive riverside village with excellent amenities and set close to many major attractions.

Heritage of Guégon

Guégon can trace its roots back to Roman times, and evidence of Roman occupation can still be seen today. The built heritage of the village includes a Romanesque church built in the 12th century. This incorporates a Lantern of the Dead, one of only twenty in all of France. There is also a Gothic/Renaissance church dating from the 16th century fronted by a Column of Justice, and a Gothic church from the 13th century. The granite Château de Tréganteur is another noteworthy sight.

Shops and services available

Guégon has some small shops and businesses, offering the usual goods and services. There are also several bars and a restaurant, but if you want larger shops or a greater choice of eateries, there are many to be found in the surrounding villages and countryside. Just four miles away is Josselin, a beautiful mediaeval town which also offers supermarkets, all services and excellent shopping and dining.

Activities around Guégon

Walking is never less than a pleasure in this area, and there are lots of lovely walking trails around the village. Cycling and horse-riding are also popular. The River Oust, which runs through the village, offers the possibility of canoeing or kayaking. Golfers can find five eighteen-hole courses within easy reach of Guégon. And then there are water sports, which are available both at the coast and inland on the lakes and rivers.

Explore Josselin' castle and have fun at Ploermel's leisure lake

There are many delightful places to visit in Morbihan and the other Breton departments. Josselin is the nearest big attraction, and it is fun to explore. The castle is stunning and there are a number of heritage buildings in addition to the riverside walks and many cafés. Ploermel is about eight miles from Guégon and has a super leisure lake.

Enjoy the seaside

It takes about three quarters of an hour to get to the seaside in Morbihan, and it is well worth the drive. Beautiful, south-facing beaches sheltered from the wind make this part of the Breton coast a favourite with families and sun lovers in summer time. Why not take a boat trip across to Belle Ile for a day trip with a difference? Finally, if you want to head north to the Côtes-d'Armor to visit Dinan or St Malo, a drive of just an hour and a half will do the trick.

How to get there

Fly to Rennes, Dinard or Brest directly from the UK. Ryanair and Flybe are among the airlines that serve one or other of these airports. Ferries can get you to St Malo or Brest. Drivers will find Guégon quite easily from the N24 non toll motorway, along the N126.
