The Owner Recommends

A Variety of Things to See and Do!

Although many of our guests have spent much of their holiday relaxing in the garden, Bodion is a perfect base from which to enjoy the many attractions which Morbihan offers; the peace and charm of the Blavet Valley with its sleepy villages and historic buildings, the south coast (45mins) with its beaches and watersports, the idyllic islets in the inland sea of the Golfe du Morbihan, walks in the ancient woods of Lac du Guerledan For local amenities Bodion is approximately 15 mins from the historic town of Pontivy where you will find supermarkets, restaurants and shops. Plumeliau, a 5 minute drive, is our local village; a friendly place to buy bread and croissants and fresh oysters every Sunday morning, when in season. It also has a very good creperie/pizzeria aLa Forge .. St Nicholas des Eaux (15 mins), a charming village on the Blavet River, offers two restaurants, creperies and bars as well as river cruises and kayaking. The children will love tree climbing at the Adventure Forest near Camors These, with the chateaux, museums, restaurants and a steady passage of pardons, fetes and fest noz, will, we think, ensure a varied and enjoyable holiday for all the family.


Cycling for all stages from the gentle towpaths beside the Blavet river, through quiet country lanes and villages to the more exacting marked trails. Bicycles are available to hire locally.

All types of angling is catered for and daily or weekly permits are available.

Go-karting in Plumeliau, Auray and Lanester near Lorient.

There is the 9-hole course at Bieuzy les Eaux and the 18 hole courses near Vannes, Lorient and Auray.

Historic Towns
Historic towns such as Pontivy, Auray Vannes Josselin and Quimper have retained much of their medieval character and are well worth a visit.

Horse Riding
Stables can be found near Bieuzy les Eaux, Camors, Pontivy.

Markets for fresh produce and local crafts are found each day of the week in local towns. Cottages will have details of specific days.

Other Interesting Things to Do
A skateboarding park can be found in Hennebont. Tree climbing in the adventure forest at Camors is a lot of fun for the fit and energetic. Try also the craft village of La Gacilly and Pont Scorff. The list can go on - beaches, rocky coves, museums, zoos, working museums, restored villages like Poul Fetan, chateaux, pardons, fetes

Pontivy was chosen by Napoleon as a garrison town and renamed Napoleonville for a while. It is a charming country town on the River Blavet with many beautiful half-timbered, corbelled and turreted houses, cobbled streets and attractive shops in the old quarter around the 16th century church of Notre Dame de la Joie. The 15th century Castle of the Dukes of Rohan with its two remaining towers is well-worth a visit. There is a good variety of restaurants, cafes, interesting shops and good supermarkets. Pontivy has an open-air swimming pool. Market day is Monday.

Watersports include canoeing on rivers, water skiing on inland lakes at Guerledan and Ploermel and sailing, surfing and windsurfing on the coast.

Amazing holiday! The cottages are very well equipped and we had everything we needed. Marion and Al are wonderful hosts, there if you need them but not intrusive. Any queries we had were dealt with immediately.

Beautiful part of France with plenty to do in the surrounding area.

I highly recommend this place as a relaxing holiday venue.

Had a fabulous time, the coach house is comfortable, spacious and well equipped. The pool was refreshingly cold during a very hot spell and being able to use inflatables and balls was a bonus with an older teenager. The owners were extremely welcoming and had great knowledge of the area to inform our decision making for outings. We would definitely visit again and would highly recommend any family staying here x
