Running a French Holiday Gite in Rural Brittany

Tour de France coming to Brittany

The Tour de France cycling race will be coming through Brittany in July this year over two days:

  • Saturday 8th July is a time trial from Saint Grégoire to Rennes
  • Sunday 9th July is a road race from Saint-Méen-le-Grand to Lorient
Rennes is about 60 miles away from our Brittany Holiday Gite, Saint Meen 40 miles and Lorient 60 miles.

Although the offical tour website does not detail the precise stage routes, my guess is that they'll take the N164 dual carriageway from St Meen past Loudeac, Pontivy and then onto Lorient - thus passing about 15 minutes drive away from our Brittany Gite.
