The Ty Barrachou is a townhouse in Guisseny on the northern coast of beautiful Brittany. This is a largely undiscovered pocket of the coast just 30km west of where the EuroVelo 1 and EuroVelo 4 routes meet at Roscoff. It's also just 30km north of Brest. The coastline here loops around Finistere – on the NW tip of France – from Roscoff through to Brest, making it a stunning part of the country to ride. You'll find Ty Barrachou Gite in the village of Guisseny, which remains largely untouched by tourism. It's situated between the 'boulder village' of Meneham – which is often used as a film set – and the inlet that looks out to the Ile Vierge, with its famous lighthouse. Ty Barrachou, which has its own enclosed garden, offers upmarket hostel-style accommodation. Rooms can be booked individually and there is no minimum night stay. There is a boulangerie next door plus full self-catering facilities. It's ideal for family groups or friends and can sleep up to 10 people. It's owned by an outdoor centre that offers kayak and standup paddle rental and courses. Bikes and baggage transfers can be arranged for a small cost. English and French spoken. This truly is an ideal 'local' base in a beautiful part of Brittany.
