Location description

La Ville au Tady stands in over 1 acre of gardens. It is a traditional Breton long-house, or longère, that has been fully renovated while retaining its charm and character. Located in a small hamlet in Southern Brittany, the local village of Guegon is just a few minutes drive or a pleasant cycle ride through scenic country lanes. Within the village you will find several bars, a general store, restaurant and the essential boulangerie-patisserie for daily fresh bread. The area is perfect for exploring on foot or cycling, with a designated cycle route passing through the hamlet. The medieval town of Josselin with its famous chateau, 17th Century half-timbered buildings, bars and restaurants is an easy 4 mile drive. Brittany’s largest inland lake is located just outside Josselin, with swimming and water sport facilities. Superb beaches are to be found all along the nearby Morbihan coast which is said to have 365 small Islands, one to explore for each day of the year.

Other activities

There is a huge choice of fine sandy beaches within easy driving distance (45 mins), where you can enjoy swimming, sand yachting, waterskiing, windsurfing, sailing, snorkeling, kitesurfing or body surfing. Some of the most popular beaches are at Carnac, La Trinite Sur Mer, Lamor Plage, and the Quiberon peninsular. There are countless further quiet beaches to discover. Boat trips are available to explore the Gulf of Morbihan and beyond to the Island of Belle Isle.

Tourist attractions

There are many interesting small villages and larger towns in the region. Auray is a lovely old town with lots of shops and restaurants, an old port and an excellent Sunday market. Vannes is a large town on the edge of the Gulf of Morbihan with an old quarter bustling with good restaurants and small shops. Excellent markets are held on Wednesdays and Saturdays and a famous jazz festival in July. Carnac has excellent beaches but it is world famous for being an ancient and historic place with over 3,000 prehistoric megalithic stones. There is comprehensive information on places to visit and suggestions for activities on our personal web site.
