Pontrieux, France

Pontrieux holiday rental homes, cottages and villas

Pontrieux is found in the Côtes-d'Armor department in the Brittany region of north-western France. A visit to Pontrieux means stepping into an extraordinarily typically pretty Breton village. Its name is derived from Pont being French for bridge – literally "bridge over the Trieux." Unsurprisingly then, when you stay in a holiday cottage in Pontrieux, you’ll notice that the river dominates the village to a flattering effect. In fact since the fifteenth century the river and the village were an active part of trade in the local area.

When you rent a holiday home in Pontrieux know that you’re staying in one of 22 designated small towns of character in Brittany. Upstream from Pontrieux’s harbour is the heart of Pontrieux where you’ll find its main bridge: the St Yves Bridge. It’s extremely pretty, paved and connects the Place Yves Le Trocquer and Liberty Square.

When you stay in self catering accommodation in Pontrieux don’t forget to visit the famous lavoirs! Historically, each of Pontrieux’s bourgeois homes had its own laundry area or lavoir. Today these lavoirs have been fully restored and every summer between spring and autumn can be viewed on a boat trip – where they each decked out in a stunning array of flowers.

There is also a steam train which connects the neighbouring town of Paimpol with Pontrieux each summer. It stops on the shores of Trieux, as part of the experience one can also try delicious local crepes and cider!

Within easy reach of Pontrieux, other tourist attractions also include Lac de Guerlédan - Cotes-d'Armor (58 km), The Cathedral of St. Vincent (Cathédrale St-Vincent) (84 km), Château de St Malo (84 km), or Ramparts, St Malo (84 km).
