Pretty Riverside location with a good range of places to eat. Limited parking in immediate vicinity, but extra available 5-10min walk away up a hill through the village.

St Goustan and Auray are just so French. We spent a week there and hardly saw any English or other nationalities. Brilliant, that's why we went to France. A working knowledge of French is useful, but the locals are more than willing to help out...More

We stayed three miles away at St Anne d'Auray, which is an interesting place too - just not by the water like St Goustan. The trick in visiting St Goustan is to work out how quick it is to get down from Auray town to...More

Some very nice places to sit and watch the world go by. The harbour on the river, framed by the bridge is rather lovely and walking the cobbled medieval streets is like strolling back in time. The route from Auray down past the castle ruins...More

We were introduced to this river setting on our way to a recommended restaurant. The old buildings are charming and an accordionist added to the ambiance. Limited vehicular traffic on the bridge made this whole scene so much more peaceful.
