Places to visit

The surrounding area has many beautiful places to visit, from the medieval walled towns of Hennebont, Vannes and Josselin, to the ancient port town of Auray – St Goustan. The superb variety of beaches from Quiberon to Carnac and the Gulf of Morbihan, with its hundreds of islands, are all within 30 to 45 minutes reach. Some ideal for sailing/surfing others for sandcastles and swimming. Our favourite is Carnac - very child friendly and with many great restaurants. Both car and passenger ferries offer trips to various islands, and around the Gulf. Prehistoric sites are numerous in the area, including the standing stones at Carnac (the most important in Europe) and the forest Foret de Huelgoat, that once stretched the length of prehistoric Brittany. Lots of activities and places to visit for the children. Poul Fetan is a most - a historic Breton village recreated. Don't miss the Breton games!! Many local markets.

Things to do

'Activities' The Blavet river is delightful for cycling walking and fishing - and it is right on your doorstep. Canoes and Pedaloes for hire at St Nicholas des Eaux a delightful village with Bars and restaurants on the banks of the river. There are 5 Golf courses within an hours drive.

The Southern coast of Brittany benefits from delightful beaches some great for families others popular with surfers.
