Things to Do

It is not necessary to travel very far to find lots of things to do and places to see, either inland or on the south coast. Le Faouet with its 16th century covered market and wide selection of restaurants and bars is just 10 minutes drive. Every Thursday Hennebont, 20 minutes away, has the largest outdoor market in the region, selling local produce, clothing, arts and crafts. The town has a national stud (Haras), tours and displays with Breton horses can be seen. Pontivy is about the same distance inland, there is an open market on Mondays, the 15th century chateau, a medieval quarter with cafes and craft shops, and the Napoleonville area beside the River Blavet. The Gulf of Morbihan boasts long stretches of pale sand much favoured by windsurfers. There is plenty of safe swimming, clean beaches and clear waters. The modern city of Lorient has many attractions, including a sailing museum, submariner museum and U-boat bunkers with an original WW2 submarine. The Inter-Celtic Festival takes place in the old port during the first week of August. The historic cathedral city of Vannes with its half timbered houses; the fortified walled fishing port of Concarneau; Pont-Aven linked to Gauguin and still popular with modern day artists; can all be reached within an hours drive. L'Abbaye de Bon Repos, is a 12th century Cistercian abbey, beside the Nantes to Brest Canal cycle path; there are regular art exhibitions, a Sunday morning market and a spectacular son et luminiere display.
