Brittany has a character all of its own. Its buildings, its culture, its folklore, its gastronomy and its colourful characters, all make it one of France's most popular destinations for the French and foreigners alike. All of this appeal can be found in the village of Guiscriff. Typically Breton buildings sit alongside heritage chapels, backed by some of France's prettiest countryside. The culture is celebrated in a mediaeval festival, and the old station has been turned into a museum. Guiscriff offers Brittany in a nutshell.
Guiscriff has a very visible heritage, and you can spend several enjoyable hours exploring its nine chapels and other historic buildings. The old railway station is now a fascinating museum too. Add to this the natural heritage of the picturesque and distinctive Breton countryside, and you have a delightful place to stay, or indeed, to live.
Of course, there's more to life in the village than exploring history. Guiscriff is well equipped with all you need for a comfortable modern lifestyle too. There are various shops, supermarkets and services, so everything's on hand. And, given that the Breton gastronomy is so delicious, it's also good to know that the village offers some great restaurants where you can settle down to enjoy this very important part of local life and culture.
The lovely Breton region has so much to tempt you to get outdoors and active. The coast is ever accessible, and offers everything from traditional bucket and spade family days out, to sailing, swimming, sea fishing and more. The mediaeval seaside town of Concarneau is just half an hour away from Guiscriff and has superb sandy beaches and a delightful atmosphere. The larger towns of Quimper and Lorient are also only a short drive from Guiscriff and well worth a visit.
Inland, you might like to try horse riding - it's a wonderful way to enjoy the scenery at a leisurely pace, or grab a bicycle and get pedalling. Golf is available at no less than three nearby locations.
On a different note, if you like browsing the colourful stalls of French street markets, there are plenty to be found within reach of Guiscriff. The nearest is at Scaer, 5 km from your base, on Saturday mornings.
