Dear Editor is on tour around Brittany in northern France with Member Mark Cavalier. We are exploring the village of Auray known for its ties to the art community, for its remarkable old town and for its sidewalk cafes that are just perfect for watching the world pass you by.
The most popular place to visit for guest of our holiday home in Brittany in Northern France is Auray renowned as a town for its quaint artist studios, with its showpiece undoubtedly the ancient quarter of St-Goustan.
Whilst walking along the River Auray with its delightful fifteenth and sixteenth century houses, you will eventually arrive at the seventeenth century stone bridge spanning the wandering river with a collection of restaurants where you can sample traditional Breton seafood dishes or enjoy some delightful crepes.
It’s a wonderful place to eat or drink alfresco while watching the world and his wife walk by. The port of Auray is over looked by the old battlements that zig-zag up the hill on the opposite side of the river with some fantastic vantage points to take some stunning photographs.
Every Monday morning you can enjoy the best French market in the area winding around all the streets of Auray. Be sure to sample local produce, soak up the atmosphere of this vibrant market and finish with a great lunch at the port overlooking the river.
From the Port of St-Goustan you can also take a cruise and discover the delights of the Golfe du Morbihan or just 10 minutes away by car is the Grand Plage of Carnac voted one of the top twenty beaches in France.
