We enjoyed wandering about this lovely place soaking up the Breton atmosphere. It is very picturesque and there are lots of galleries to visit. We parked at the top of the hill in the free car park and walked down to the water. It is an easy walk down and a bit more challenging on the way back up, but... More

We found the harbour quite easily by following road signs and found a convenient free car park slightly uphill from the harbour. We stopped for lunch in one of the harbourside cafes. The area was beautifull and there was an antique book market being held on the quayside when we were there. Unfortunately, it started raining when we were having... More

St. Goustan is the quaint little port area, serving Auray--limited strictly to pleasure craft on the river. There is a beautiful stone bridge connecting St. Goustain to Auray. The square on the St. Goustain side of the bridge contains many good restaurants: starving in St. Goustan should not be one of your worries. We also heartily recommend Le Marin Hotel,... More

Great areas to walk, a number of good places to eat, easy access to the upper town. And it's where Benjamin Franklin landed on his way to ask for help from Louis XIV!

Decent French market in Auray on a Monday morning. Afterwards I recommend a short walk to this very picturesque historic riverside port. Some nice places to eat or have a coffee or beer.

This is the port of Auray and it is a classic of its kind, with cafés and restaurants set around a very large cobbled area with charming half-timbered houses as a backdrop. We have been there several times and one of the main points of interest is that it is nowhere near as busy as Honfleur, which offers a similar... More

This is the place to go for excellent seafood, it was a lovely night and we sat outside and really enjoyed the ambience and the view from the terrace. Would highly recommend

Plenty of places to eat in this pretty little village. In addition to the numerous restaurants lining the quayside there are a couple of créperies tucked away in the narrow streets behind the port. If approaching from the centre of Auray, take rue du Belvedere, which offers a birds eye view of the port. Then return to Auray via the... More

The town of Auray is not the main attraction; it is overshadowed by the small characterful old port of Saint-Goustan, a five minute walk away. One of the roads linking Auray with the port houses a collection of interesting artist's shops. If you have a sweet tooth, don’t miss the Biscuitier Chocolatier just before the bridge, who make a wonderful... More

Auray and its old port 'Port de St Goustan' is a highly recommended place to visit if your enjoying a holiday in the Morbihan area of Brittany. Every Monday morning there is a lively market that winds itself around the center of Auray where your find all sorts of local foods to try, fresh fruit, arts and crafts. In the... More
