The Owner Recommends

Abbaye of Bon Repos

Favourite place for holidaymakers french and english. Old ruin, market every Sunday, restaurants, canal and river walks.

Lac De Guerledan

Was emptied May 2015, the first time since 1985 probably the last. Expected visitors in excess of 1 million came to view the old buildings under the lake and the inspection of the barrage for maintenance. The lake was full again by 2016 and is still popular with holidaymakers from all over the world.

Historic town of Pontivy

Beautiful old town with cobbled streets and river running through - many historic places to visit, market Monday and Saturday, lovely shops and restaurants abound, indoor and outside swimming pools nearby - we even have a Lidl and Aldi supermarket close to the centre.
