Auray, my next door neighbor

I am having a great time with my father in tow, taking him to some of the places I have been and showing our next new home area in France. This time it was to our neighbor and main city of Auray.

Auray is very historical ,once a Benjamin Franklin landed here in route to secure credit and recognition of the new nation of the USA to king Louis XVI of France; bad weather cause his boat to land at the river Loch entrance of the guld that took him to the area of St Goustan in Auray.

I go her often to eat and drink spent some time away from work. Now it was time to show my father around, and taking away the walk I gave him ,the rest was very enjoyable.

He is getting old, so the walks are not his forte now. He really enjoy the boat scene, and the nice choice of restos even ice cream!  I park by Kerrolean parking area.

The city of Auray webpage is at and the tourism office is at

It has a train station with direct connection to Päris Montparnasse via TGV.The bus system Auraybus runs in the summer and then there is the department or area bus of TIM. However, the best way is to do with a car ::)

Rental car AVIS is right at the train station in Auray. Taxi service is very frequent and dependable with about a 10-15 euro charge anyway around the area. The best road is the N165 and get off at exit D765 Auray.

You have an old chateau at St Goustan, wonderful churches and chapels, and one of the best preserved inner city old town in the area going down to the river at St Goustan off pl de la Republique.

We are beginning to love this area, and encourage all to discovered it as many British and Germans already have ;lol! there are everywhere.

Today it was up to 30° C and very hot sunny pleasant for the beach so stay tune for more in future posts. Here are some photos. Cheers and happy Summer.

  1. Hola, amigo querido y familia, especialmente su padre..
    Saludos desde Hollywood Beach donde estamos pasando unos dias de vacaciones! tiene la misma sentido para mi como Quiberon, pero en Quiberon la comida es mejor! Ja!
    Siempre coge tren hasta Auray y durante verano hay una pequena tren hasta quiberon.
    Me voy a volver a mi isla Rica solo 135 milas de aca, y nos vemos en Quiberon en Octubre o Noviembre!
    buen provecho, estoy tomando una cortadito y cierto voy a comer comida cubana (realmente mejor por aca de la habana!) en La Carreta o Versailles! no se hay resto cubanos pres de Hollywood Beach?
    Hasta La……



    • jajaja si mas cantidad mejor no se el gusto es distinto, la comida. Alli hay menos lugares habia un resto pepe algo y otro havana algo pero ya hace anhos no me acuerdo los nombres… la vida sigue.

      Auray es muy bonito pero mas pequenho que Quiberon mas turistico. Si en el verano hay servicio de trenes despues nada. Ya vez mi escrito en Carnac y la Trinite sur mer conoci Cubanos de Centro Habana que viven aqui y viajan mucho a la isla entonces me puse al dia jejeje

      Bueno ya nos veremos seguro me dejas saber cuando estes por aca,chao
