Plouray - a charming Breton village

Plouray, which is found in central Brittany in the coveted Morbihan department, is a village full of traditional Breton charm. Among its attractions, in addition to its pretty houses and tranquil streets, are a lake and a Buddhist Centre. The village lies in lovely countryside, close to many well known towns and sights, and is an ideal base for discovering more of this popular region.

Shops and services on offer

Plouray has a very comfortable range of local shops and services, meaning that you can find most of the things you need for everyday life without having to take the car and drive for miles. In addition to the shops (boulangerie, pharmacy, general store and a bar/tabac) there is a nursery, as well as infant and junior schools, a doctor's surgery, a bank and a lovely old church. The nearby town of Rostrenen offers much larger facilities, should you need to visit the supermarket or have older children who would attend a college (secondary school).

Visit the lake and Buddhist Centre

On the edge of the village is a beautiful lake, while another, more unusual landmark is Plouray's Tibetan Buddhist Centre, a place of pilgrimage for many spiritually minded people, or simply a stunning sight.

Explore nearby towns and discover Carnac's megaliths

Nearby Rostrenen is a lovely old market town, unspoiled yet offering all modern amenities. The historic town of Pontivy is well worth discovering too, as is Carnac where you can find the mysterious and ancient standing stones and megaliths. Also within reach of Plouray is the Nantes Brest Canal, perfect for a stroll along the canal banks or even a relaxing boat trip, while the coast is also within an easy drive. Seaside resorts worth adding to any itinerary of the area include Quiberon which is on the peninsula. It is utterly charming and renowned for its delicious seafood.
