A little further afield is the medieval town of Quintin with its 13th Century Church, chateau, restaurants, bars, markets, banks, a supermarket and boulangeries.
St Brieuc the capital of Cotes d’Armor is about 30 minutes away where there is a cinema, bowling, shops, and bars and restaurants. Just a further 10 minutes’ drive you will reach sandy beaches of Binic which has lots of watersport activities, restaurants, bars and pretty harbourfront.
Another lovely medieval town worth visiting is Moncontour, just under 30 minutes away. There are cobbled streets, plenty of shops and numerous bars, cafés and restaurants.
THE BRITTANY REGION:
La Croix is in the Department of Cotes d’Armor in the beautiful region of Brittany in northern France.
Brittany is easily accessible from the UK via several Ferry Ports and is also served by flights from the UK to 4 French airports (Dinard, Rennes, Brest, Nantes).
From spectacular beaches with rugged coastlines to vast sandy expanses, to peaceful woods and forests and the famous Nantes-Brest Canal, Brittany has all the makings of a perfect holiday.
The cuisine in the area includes crepes and galettes and of course the seafood! Mussels and oysters are available throughout the region, particularly in the summer months. Cider is produced here and local varieties are available in all supermarkets and restaurants.
During the summer numerous villages and town celebrate the "Pardon" which is predominantly a religious thanksgiving but is always followed by a celebratory meal (with a drink or two!) and Breton dancing.
