Perros-Guirec Trivia - The Phantom of the Opera

There's a connection between Perros-Guirec and The Phantom of the Opera: in the original novel by Gaston Leroux, that's where a teenage Vicomte de Chagny retrieves young Christine Daaé's scarf from the waves.

Gaston Leroux is reckoned to be in the same league as Edgar Allen Poe and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle as a writer of detective thrillers. His Mystery of the Yellow Room was the first "locked room puzzle".

The Pink Granite Coast

Perros-Guirec sits in a nature reserve, where both land and sea are strewn with rocks eroded by the wind. This is the Pink Granite Coast of Northern Brittany - a zone of granite of a pinkish-brown colour which is still quarried around the village of La Clarté. There are only two other pink granite coasts in the world - one in Corsica and the other in China.

When does the season start and end?

Perros-Guirec is open all year. On 17 December 2006 the Coupe des Pieds GelÚs regatta was open to catamarans, sailboards and all dinghies except the children's Optimists. Take a look at this report and pictures
