Welcome to our selection of holiday homes to rent in Lannion, France.
The town of Lennaion is located on the northern coast of Brittany in the departement of Cotes d'Armor. Situated where the River Lannion meets the sea, the area is not known as a typical holiday resort, though there are some pleasant and quiet beaches on the banks of the estuary. Thanks to the proximity of the sea, the area is well known for its seafood restaurants and as a sailing centre, if visitors want to try their hand at something new. The town itself is home to a number of interesting and attractive historic buildings, some dating from Roman times, making it an ideal destination for those who like to explore and relax, all during the same holiday.
The old town of Lannion is a typical Breton village, with half timbered houses, narrow streets and pleasant squares, which fill with pavement cafes in the summer months. There are also cultural events held in these community spaces, such as the series of summer concerts and performances by the well-known local theatrical company, the Carre Magique. The Brelevenex church is open to tourists every day, with guided tours available during the summer. The highlight of the visit has to be the climb to the top of the church tower. It's well worth tackling the 140 steps for the view over the roofs of Lannion's medieval town centre.
Brittany is well known for its fresh produce, whether its seafood or local meat and cheese specialities. Lannion holds a large produce market every Thursday, throughout the medieval streets, while there are smaller markets each weekday morning in the old covered market hall. Lannion is also home to the Manoir de Crugil, a Breton country house, typically decorated with fine furniture and works of art. The house's garden, with its woods, flowers and water features, are one of the main attractions to visitors in the summer months. The Jardin Lepage, just outside Lannion, is another big draw for those who love the great outdoors. Open from May to October and featuring over 3,000 different species of plants, Lepage is one of the finest botanical gardens in Brittany.
Lannion and the surrounding region is dominated by the presence of water; from the River Lannion, to the Lannion estuary and out to the Atlantic Ocean. Unsurprisingly, many tourist attractions and interesting activities take place on the water, such as day trips on the Ausqueme, an old fishing boat. Trips last either for a half or full day depending on your schedule, and take you around the small islands just off the coast of Brittany. You can even try your hand at fishing for a few extra Euros. You can also have a go at canoeing, either on the calm waters of the Lannion estuary or out at sea.
