The Owner Recommends

A visit to Nearby Morlaix

Around an hours drive away lies the beautiful medieval town of Morlaix. The road to Morlaix is quiet and passes through stunning unspoiled countryside. Once there you can wander round the old town and see the spectacular viaduct. There is a wide selection of good shops and bars and restaurants. It makes a lovely day out.
