THE AREA.........

Southern Brittany is blessed with beautiful weather most of the year, obviously there are days of rain, but it has a micro climate which means it is often 10 degrees more then the UK in the summer. It is ideally placed for so many beautiful places to visit and things to do all within an hour of the Gite. Below is a selection for you which really are a must to visit, there are of course many more, but we suggest a visit to a Tourist Office who will give you loads of suggestions, leaflets and maps to help you.


JOSSELIN (16 km) - A very popular place, where there is a perfectly preserved stunningly beautiful chateau which is a medieval fortress and is still lived in by the Duke & Duchess of Rohan. This wonderful Chateau has just been rated (2017) as the 3rd best chateau in the whole of France! It's a must see along with the Chateau's Dolls Museum which is open to visitors from April to October, there are tours in English daily during the summer.

Le Bois d'Amour (Lovers' Wood) in Josselin is literally a "park in a town". It has been created to promote nature and the environment. There is an open air theatre where music events are held during the summer months. An amphitheatre stages open air films and concerts during the summer.

Bastille Day 14th July, a very important date in history for the French which sets the storming of the Bastille in 1789. It has become a major public holiday. with numerous celebrations going on throughout France, Josselin is no exception and holds a Medieval Festival every 2 years, (re-enactment of medieval times) in the cobbled streets with its half timbered medieval houses, this will be happening this year 2018, it is amazing to see, where the whole town dresses up in period costume, with flame throwers, artistes, stalls, restaurants, bars, fireworks and more, a really good weekend not to be missed!


LA GACILLY (44 km) - A very pretty town, the home of Yves Rocher (cosmetics & perfumes) where the family still live. There are fields of wild flowers around the town which are used to make perfumes in their factory, they also have a shop, spa hotel, and a vegetarian restaurant, very rare in France!

Outdoor Photo Festival (the largest in France), absolutely spectacular, focusing specifically on the environment, is held from June to end of September each year all around the town. Created in 2004 by Jacques Rocher, hundreds of large format photos are installed in the open air throughout the quaint cobbled streets. The aim of the festival is to make the public think about the future of the planet. An absolute must see!

Day Boat Hire, rent a boat in this pretty town, relax and meander through the river Aff which leads to the Nantes/Brest canal, whilst spotting a kingfisher and other wildlife by the banks!


MALESTROIT (33km) - A pretty market town with regular concerts in summer. The canal is flanked by paths for walking and cycling, with boating for miles in both directions. On the outskirts of Malestroit is the Musée de la Résistance de Bretagne. This fascinating museum chronicles the vital role played by the people of Brittany at the time of the German Occupation during the second World War.


ROCHEFORT-EN-TERRE (49kms) - voted “prettiest village in France” in 2015. With its cobbled streets, beautiful geraniums everywhere you look, plentiful restaurants and shops. Don't miss the church with its abundance of stunning stained glass windows, amazing colours, it is a must see on your holiday agenda!


MALANSAC (40 mins) - The Prehistoric Park is a great day out for the youngsters. There are 30 scenes of reconstruction of the dinosaur age. The park is based on models and information from the Natural History Museum in Paris.


PLOERMEL (26 mins) - Although a town with lots of shops, on the outskirts Lac au Duc is a large stunning lake measuring 5.5km, with a sandy beach, lots to do here, kyaks, canoes, pedalos, water skiing, fishing, bar/restaurant, plenty of parking, fun for all the family! Adjacent to the lake is Lac au Duc Golf Club, this is a little gem in Brittany, a very popular 9 hole golf course. Take the hortensia trail alongside with 5,500 hortensias! or take all or part of the walk/cycle route around the lake, but beware this is long!
