Pont Aven(67 kms)

Picturesque mill town. Plenty of good places to eat. Lovely walks and places for picnic.

Colourful summer festival.

Lorient (51kms) Inter-Celtic Festival 4 - 13 August 2017

The town of Lorient plays host to this spectacular annual showcase of the Celtic arts where performers from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Asturias, Galicia, the Isle of Man and Brittany turn up to display a rare show. Every year there are over 3,00,000 spectators who enjoy the showcase of Celtic arts ranging from traditional work, classical, folk, rock and jazz musicians, singers, dancers, painters, sculptors, writers, filmmakers and lecturers.

Prepare for breath-holding musical performances, as this is the place where the International Pipe Band Championships, and the National Breton Bagpipe championships take place. In this event, prominent professors give lectures about Celtic culture and you can find more formal courses of study and research. Visitors may even feel a tad Scottish, since in addition to music, the food, and traditional dances are reminiscent of the Scottish Ceilidh.

Half-timbered houses, fountains, wash-houses, remains of the château and ramparts, the guardroom and ‘porterie’, or former entrance to the château…

Outside the town, the Scorff valley is well worth a visit: otters, salmon and trout share the same fresh waters.

Nearby, the river Ellé valley with its ever changing moods will enchant you, as it varies between calm and tranquil river and raging torrent!
