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

The buildings clustered round the quay are mostly converted to places to eat and drink but they retain a medieval feel. The steep cobbled street up to the centre of town is lined with interesting shops and artisan galleries. Always something moving on the water with boats coming and going. Altogether delightful.

A very picturesque old port accessed via a cobbled street. Not difficult to see why it is so popular ( which it was). It was a lovely warm evening to have a meal and watch people stroll by. I'm sure everyone will visit (at least once ) and come away feeling happy with their visit.👍

An enjoyable town for a stroll, admiring the scenery and soaking up the atmosphere. Lots of restaurants on the port-side, pleasant welcoming staff who speak English. Menu choices limited but OK. Plenty of galleries and art shops to browse. Very pretty in the evening.
