The Owner Recommends

Local Vide Grenier

Most Sundays there are local vide grenier (street markets) offering everything from local produce to things you never thought you needed!

Medieval Architecture

Within a two hour drive there are historic towns of Concarneau, Morlaix, and Quimper which are filled with historic buildings and "round the walls" walks.

Myths and Legends

The nearby town of Huelgoat offers a history steeped in Arthurian legend with river and forest walks. There are also several creperies and bars for your enjoyment.

Valley of the Saints

The valley of the Saints heritage site is well worth a visit with its granite carvings overlooking breathtaking views of the countryside. Nearby is the small church of St Gildas which houses a collection of local history and photographs.
