Blavet, France

Blavet Valley Holiday Rental Cottages, Villas and Gites 

Blavet Valley dominates an area within the Morbihan department, in the Brittany region of North-Eastern France. Broadly speaking it lies between Lorient and Pontivy, with the river Blavet linking the coast to inland Brittany. 

Blavet Valley is actually 14 pretty little Breton towns and villages which are idyllically positioned and linked via the river in this wonderful area. A stay in Blavet Valley means you’ll be exploring the following towns which all boast a prime waterfront spot:  Baud, Bieuzy-les-Eaux, Bubry, Camors, Genin, Hennebont, Inzinzac-Lochrist, La Chapelle Neuve, Languidic, Lanvaudan, Melrand, Pluméliau, Quistinic, Saint Barthelemy.

Unsurprisingly, when you rent holiday cottages in the Blavet Valley you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to activities. Popular sports include: mountain biking – with well-designed trails, hiking – with marked circuits to follow, fishing or even kayaking! There is also an excellent towpath along which to pursue your favorite leisure activity. Golf is also available at Bieuzy-les-Eaux. 

The medieval city of Hennebont is a popular place to see when you visit the Blavet Valley. Situated about ten miles from the mouth of the Blavet, the river neatly divides it into two parts:  the Ville Close, the medieval walled town, and the 17th century Ville Neuve on the left bank and the oldest site: the Vieille Ville on the right. The old walled town (Ville Close) still has traces of its medieval ramparts dating from the 13th to 15th centuries as well as a large fortified 15th century gatehouse complete with double-doors with drawbridge slots, known as the Porte du Broërec.

Other places to visit include when you stay in Blavet Valley self-catering holiday accommodation, include: St Nicolas des Eaux village, Poul Fetan - a working 19th Century hamlet, Melrand Lann Gouh – an ancient settlement and Locmine – an attractive market town to the east of the Blavet Valley. 

There are many airports serving the Blavet Valley and these include: Dinard, Saint-Brieuc, Rennes, and Brest. Dinard offers flights with Ryanair and Aurigy Air Service to and from the UK. Saint-Brieuc offers flights with Skybus.  Rennes is served by Flybe and Brest by Flybe and Ryanair. St Malo is the nearest port offering Brittany Ferries from Portsmouth and Condor Ferries form Weymouth, Poole, Guernsey and Jersey. If you prefer the train, the nearest station will be dictated by whereabouts in the Blavet Valley you are. Journey time to Paris Montparnasse is approximately 4 ½ hours – usually with a change along the route. 

Brittany is warmer and drier than the south of England, particularly in summer. The south coast of Brittany can be scorching in July and August. However, being in the north west of France, the weather can also set be wet at any time of the year.
