Comment from Guest
Wonderful house and wood. We have 2 boys ages 6 and 8 they have had the time of their lives, got up into pool, then onto lake in the boat, made a den and played in the wood, 7pm bed exhausted, what more can you ask of a holiday. Oh the glass of wine after they have gone to bed. Fantastic. Will. Kirsy, Ally and Angus Howat.
Plumeliau is approximately 5kms away with bread shops, a must in France. Two supermarkets - both offer Sunday morning opening, a fresh fishmonger, chemists and a florist.
Pontivy, a beautiful old market town has some really good restaurants, shops, the market on Monday sells local produce, vegetables, cheeses, meats and 'the rotiserie' cooked chickens and roasted potatoes.
Baud is smaller, but still has an excellent restaurant the Cheval Blanc, a post card museum and it's market on Saturday.
Vannes is the closest seaside town about 30 minutes drive away. A beautiful old harbour town with timber houses, the chateaux and gardens, lavoir, wonderful restaurants, fresh seafood being a speciality, shops to die for and again a fantastic market on Saturday and Wednesday morning.
Carnac has sheltered long sandy beaches, with play areas for the children as well as the white train that takes you round the town, beaches and the prehistoric standing stones.
There is so much history in the area, with chateaux at Josslin, Largoet, Vannes, Sarzeau, churches at St Nichodeme, St Gildas, and medieval towns Dinard, Vannes, Rennes and Josselin to name just a few.
Karting is available just outside Plumeliau. Canoes can be hired in St Nicholas des Eaux.
With the rolling countryside and quiet lanes it is an excellent place for walking and cycling. The Blavet river and the canal are 10 mins drive away. Their tow paths are excellent for easy walking or cycling.
Horse riding and a 9 hole golf course are available in Bieuzy. Tennis courts in Baud. Bowling is available in Pontivy.
Camours has a forest adventure park, fun for all the family, tree top ladders, swings slides etc.
Fishing on the Blavet or on the lakes, it is possible to buy a permit from the local Tabacs.
There is a market on in a town somewhere every day of the week.
For us the best attraction of all is the French way of life, good food, good wine and good company, give it a try you will not regret it.
Pontivy has a good range of restaurants, family, expensive, French, Italian. All very good we have tried them all.
St Nicholas des Eaux has a very good creperie, a good place to end up after a walk along the rive Blavet.
Baud - The Chavel Blanc.
An eat in or take away pizzia in Plumeliau.
