This is a magnificent park only 10 minutes drive from Chez Moseby. There are unusual sculptures dotted around the spacious grounds. There is also a chateau which houses art exhibitions from time to time. The cafe serves food and drink. Opening times of this can be limited. A paradise for walkers both dogs and humans, with a lake and wooded areas.

Josselin Market

This is a lively Saturday morning market selling local produce - always busy! The medieval town of Josselin has a superb chateau and of course many places to eat and drink. Each summer a medieval festival takes place.

La Gacilly

The Brittany Region

Brittany is easily accessible from the UK via several ferry ports and is also served by flights from the UK to 4 French airports. From spectacular beaches with rugged coastlines to vast sandy expanses, to peaceful woods and forests and the famous Nantes-Brest Canal, Brittany has all the makings of a perfect holiday. The cuisine in the area includes crepes and galettes and of course the seafood! Mussels and oysters are available throughout the region, particularly in the summer months. Cider is produced here and there are opportunities to visit the many cider farms, including tastings! During the summer numerous villages and town celebrate the "Pardon" which is predominantly a religious thanksgiving but is always followed by a celebratory meal (with a drink or 2!) and Breton dancing.


Approximately 40 minutes from the property is Vannes. A fortified city, Vannes dates from Roman times. Guided walking tours of the city are available. If you prefer something a little less energetic why not just relax in one of the many harbourside restaurants and enjoy the wonderful seafood for which this area is famous!
