Baud Holiday Cottages and Gites for Rental, Brittany

Baud is a commune in the Morbihan department in the Brittany region in north-western France. The Ével river dominates this pretty town – running through it and its western border while the bigger Blavet river forms the north-western border.  When you visit Baud you’re entering a typically pretty Breton village. The town centre is the highest point of Baud besides the Church. Baud was historically known for being a market town. Even today, when you rent a holiday cottage in Baud you can visit the town’s market, held on Saturdays, where you can see and sample local delicacies from the surrounding areas.

The Blavet river basin is a local beauty spot to take in when you stay in Baud holiday rental gites. The river links with the Canal de Nantes à Brest at Pontivy. There are extensive cycle / pedestrian paths along the riverbank to enjoy too. 

Baud is situated on the crossroads of two major roads bisecting Brittany: the North South Road, which links Saint-Brieuc and St. Malo on the north coast to the ancient towns of Vannes and Lorient on the south coast, and the East West Road which links Rennes (the capital of Brittany) to Quimper (an old cultural capital). The Quimper Road then continues on to the tip of Brittany at Brest. This fortunate position allows visitors to enjoy all that the area has to offer when you rent self-catering holiday accommodation in Baud, Brittany

There are many festivals that take place in and around Baud. These include the beer festival, the camion cross, the auto cross, the music festival and the festival of traditional crafts. Things to see when you visit Baud include: Le Conservatoire Régional de la Carte Postale (The Regional Conservatory of postcards) that keeps more than 60,000 postcards, presenting the history of the postcard and also traditional Brittany in a permanent exhibition.
