Things to do

We have divided some of our favourite activities in to two categories; some which can be found localy and others that can be found around Brittany.

Local attractions


The best Pizzeria around. Eat brilliant pizza and Tour the village from here.


The location is ideal for walkers, the GR37 footpath runs straight through the village and the GR341 passes just a few kilometres away.

The Nantes-Brest canal with its towpath also passes through Gouarec and nearby is the beautiful Lac de Guerledan and la Forêt de Quénécan; both of which have circular walks.

There are also high tracks over the fabulous Liscuis de Laniscat area with its fascinating megalithic tombs.

The Abbey nestles on the edge of the Quénécan forest and was established in the 12th century, it is well worth a visit.

Between Easter and the end of October there is also an artisan and crafts market held in the Abbey grounds every Sunday morning. Local food producers are happy to let you taste their wares before buying.

The nearest coast is about 45 minutes away at the pretty small resort of Binic. As Brittany is itself a peninsular, there is actually a vast selection of beaches and coastal towns to the north, south and west of Gouarec. All within an hour or an hour and a half away.
