The Owner Recommends

Auray

Vannes, Pontivy, Hennebont, Larmour Plage and Carnac are all market towns but the biggest and best is the Monday morning market at Auray.

Beaches

The beaches between Carnac and Locmariaquer are sheltered by the Quiberon peninsula and are generally safe for bathing. The beaches between Quiberon and Lorient offer good surf but require greater care.

Camors

In the centre of Camors, just a few hundred yards from the house, Pizzeria La Cigale offers good value Italian food including excellent takeaway pizzas. Korrigans lunch is very good value but limited choice.

Camors Adventure Park

If you have a head for heights you can try all the various ways of travelling through the tree tops at the Camors Adventure Park. About 1 mile from the house.

Coastal Walks

There are stunning views from the footpaths bordering the coast, the river estuaries and the Golfe du Morbihan. The paths are generally well maintained. Take your camera with you as there are many photo opportunities.

Golf

The courses in the area include a French championship course near Auray, a 9-hole beginners course towards Pontivy and a links course near Lorient. Tickets are sometimes available to play 5 different courses in 5 days.

Golfe du Morbihan

Walking or cycling is a joy on Ile aux Moines on their almost traffic free roads, one of 365 islands in the Golfe. Bikes can be hired at the port. There are numerous boat tours of the Golfe from most of the ports including Vannes and Auray.

Just a Short Drive Away

We have produced a long list of restaurants in the area providing very good food at a reasonable price and the Auberge at Ste Anne d'Auray tops the list. They provided the food for the Pope when he visited the Basilica.

Location and Activities

On the outskirts of Camors a small town in the Forest of Camors. Play tennis, visit the clog makers shop and museum or enjoy a day out in the Adventure Park in the forest.

Nearest Restaurant

Short walk into Camors with further choice within 3km at Baud.

Ste Anne d'Auray

The small town is overlooked by a very impressive Basilica. There is a very important Pardon at the end of July.

Vannes

Very good shopping in the old centre with many specialised shops and picturesque medievel architecture as an added bonus. Markets on Wednesday and Saturday.

Walking and Cycling

There are numerous paths through the Forest of Camors for walkers or cyclists. Alternatively join the towpath by the River Blavet towards either Hennebont or Pontivy. There are riverside bars for the less active.
