The Owner Recommends

La Guerche de Bretagne

A small market town - 15 minutes drive. The market on Tuesday in Summer is vibrant and colourful - plenty of cafes with outside seating.

La Rincerie, La Selle Craonnaise

A large lake with walking, watersports (now including tele-ski), riding, mini golf. Beautiful setting - and quiet! Fishing too. Picnicking.

Les Etincelles Aquatiques, Martigne Ferchaud

An annual lakeside event in Martigne Ferchaud for 4 nights in August. 'A fabulous dream, a world of sound, dance and pyrotechnics'. A fascinating, memorable event.

Pouance

Small market town (11kms distance) with lake offering short and longer walks. Beached area with lifeguard supervision in summer. Superb firework display on 14th July.

Rennes - the Capital of Britanny

A visit to the old part of Rennes and Place des Lices, location of the famous Saturday market, is highly recommended. Cour des Lices, a superb restaurant near the market should not be overlooked! Easy transport using park and ride and metro facilities. (30 minutes drive).
