Trebrivan Is Great For Exploring

Aug 17, 2007
Trebrivan is a small village in an agricultural area of Central Brittany.

Its about an hour and a half from Roscoff and about two hours from St Malo. Regular ferry services are available from Plymouth.

The nearest town is Carhaix with a selection of restaurants. It also has supermarkets and a pleasant shopping centre. Carhaix is about ten minutes drive away.

The village has a bar, conveniently just over the road from Le Bout de Sac. Bar La Forge is run by the very friendly and helpful couple, who moved across from the UK some years ago. They took over running Bar La Forge in Sep 2005 and its very popular with locals. It is not open late during the week, so there isnt a noise problem. If youre in the bar on a Friday or Saturday evening and spending a few euros, you may find it will stay open to English pub times, thats the old fashioned times, not the new twenty four hour ones.

There is a bakery a couple of minutes walk away from the cottage, located around the back of the church which also sells very basic general provisions. The bakery is closed on Wednesdays.

Trebrivan is ideally situated for exploring Central Brittany. Its particularly good for those who like to walk in unspoilt countryside and want a quiet holiday.

If you want the bright lights and lively nightlife youd be better off staying somewhere else.

There is an abundance of great walking country we suggest a visit to the tourist information office in Carhaix Plougeur to pick up a guide book which features twenty or so excellent suggested walks complete with maps. Most of the walks start a short drive away from Trebrivan.

No French holiday, of course, is complete without sampling one or two restaurants. Naturally we have our favourites on the area and love going for a feast at La Ronde des Mets in Carhaix Plougeur.

French, the only official language of the French Republic, is today spoken throughout Brittany. The two regional languages have no official status with regards to the state, although they are supported by the regional authorities within the strict constitutional limits. Breton, strongest in the west but to be seen all over Brittany, is a Celtic language most closely related to Cornish. Breton has in fact slightly more in common with Cornish than Welsh and Gallo, which is spoken in the east, is one of the Oil languages.
