Standing stones in Guitté

Even after 7 years living in Evran, we still discover beautiful places around here! Last Sunday, the weather was great. We were on our way to the Château de Couellan, we took a different route and followed the signs for the “Menhirs de la Pierre Longue” and “Alignement de Lampouy” (Neolitic 'Long stone' and Megalithic stone alignments).

I read that the stones in Guitté, Mont St Michel and Carnac in Brittany, although over 200 km apart, are all in a line and looking at a map, I can confirm this!

If you are looking for those stones, the village of Guitté is about 20 minutes South of Dinan, 15 min from Evran in Brittany.

In the centre of Guitté, take left at the church, direction Plouasne and carry on. You will see a sign on your right-hand-side for “Menhirs de la Pierre Longue” and “Alignement de Lampouy”.

If you are visiting the area with children, there is a great play area (aire de loisirs de la Noe Moy) with a pond and several picnic areas. Children will be able to burn off energy!

Guitté is about 15 minutes from our gite in Evran, Brittany.
