LOCATION The hamlet where this complex is situated in the heart of the unspoilt countryside of Central Brittany, between the towns of Mûr de Bretagne and Pontivy. The hamlet itself is less than a mile from the main road and consists of two farms and a chapel. Pontivy is only a five minute drive to the nearest shop and seven minutes to the town of Mûr de Bretagne which offers the usual range of shops and services. Only four miles away is the Lac de Guerlédan, a large, clean, freshwater lake with several safe sandy beaches, ideal for swimming, sailing, windsurfing and canoeing . It is possible to hire sailing boats and canoes at the Lake, also bicycles, as its wooded surroundings are excellent for both cycling and walking. Should you wish to venture further, the rugged northern coast is under a two hour drive away; the resorts of Perros Guirec, St. Brieuc, Dinard and St. Malo as well as le Mont St. Michel being popular tourist destinations. The southern coast is slightly nearer; Lorient and Carnac with their golden sandy beaches and the historic town of Vannes are equally popular. To the east the county town of Rennes is also within easy reach as is to the west, Quimper and Concarneau. It is less than two hours by car from both Roscoff or St. Malo.
