Yvignac la Tour - a quiet Breton village

Yvignac la Tour is a peaceful and pretty village with several sights of interest, not least of which is the very distinctive church tower from which it takes its name. It's also got a very picturesque setting, on the edge of the Yvignac Forest. The location of Yvignac la Tour is ideal for further exploration of the Côtes-d'Armor and the Brittany region as a whole. Medieval Dinan is close by, and it takes less than an hour to reach the beautiful beaches of the coast.

Things to see in Yvignac la Tour

You have to take a look at the church. It's Yvignac's main landmark, and has a very unusual flat roofed tower. Inside the church you can find various other interesting features; an old coffin, a shield with connections to the Knights Templar and a representation of the Holy Grail. If you've finished exploring the church, it's worth taking a look at the Manor House of Garouet, the Commandery Hall and the Castle of Yvignac. Nearby too, is the lavoir (old public wash house) of the village of Trelee, the Millenium Yew and the beautifully named Gardens of the Greyhound.

Shopping and dining in and near the village

Yvignac doesn't have a lot in terms of commerce, but don't worry. Just seven minutes up the road is the town of Broons where you can get anything you need from its supermarkets, shops and services. However, Yvignac does have a baker, a bar and a restaurant, so you can enjoy fresh bread and croissants, chat to the locals over a glass of cider or treat yourself to lunch!

Explore magical Dinan

Just a fifteen-minute drive away is the magical, mediaeval world that is Dinan. This fortified town has everything; a bustling river port, half-timbered houses, quaint, winding streets, a proliferation of bars and restaurants and colourful shops. Walk the ramparts and picture the town in days gone by, or simply soak up the atmosphere and watch the world go by. It gets pretty busy in peak season, but it's always worth a visit.

Emerald Coast is easily within reach

Only a little further on is the Emerald Coast in all its glory. Stunning beaches and lively resorts spell family fun for all. Of course, you can stay inland and still enjoy beautiful surroundings.
