The best way to discover this lovely tiny harbour is to park in the town centre and to discover it from the Rue Du Chateau so that your first vision will be from the old castle lookout! There you will discover a tiny port from the middle ages where the town was born. Today you will find many small cafés... More

Central Auray looks just a little dull, until you head down the hill to the Port De St Goustan, with its wonderful Quai, bridge, and narrow winding streets - plus a giant with a very big fish!

We regularly visit Brittany as we have family here. And when in Brittany, we always visit Auray. Sit and watch the world go by on the quayside. Good restaurants. Delightful views. Don't forget your camera.

For my birthday, my husband took me here to quickly visit this quaint little town. The port has tons of charm and little gems all over if you look carefully. Be sure to read the history of the bridge, and the port itself.

When ever we visit this area we have to go tho the old port, you can wander around the medieval buildings at the port then walk up the cobbled street into the town (best on market day) then walk back to the rampart and take some picture of the port below - bliss!!

Beautiful place..well worth a visit! Rained when we were there but still very pretty ☺ lots of restaurants and bars to sit outside. A little train runs around the port...great idea for the less mobile!

Two areas of the linked town - Auray on the hill with its historic buildings, covered fish market and old town and below on the River Auray the 15th century port of St Goustan, named after the patron saint of sailors and fishermen. Auray is often overlooked on the tourist trail but it is stunningly picturesque with great French ambience.... More

A short walk from the town centre of Auray we found the quaint port of Saint Goustain where we dined and wined at a reasonable cost and chatted the night away. Well worth a visit.

Auray was a great surprise. We expected to just spend a night in a hotel there before visiting Carnac, but the port of Saint Goustan turned out to be one of the highlights of our trip. Two nights in a row, we ate traditional galettes and drank local cidre in little restaurants in the port. We walked along the river... More
