The Rose Granite coast, with its picturesque beaches, is the perfect place to go to sun bathe, relax and explore the many small coves and rock pools. Within 20 minutes drive there is a wide choice of beaches, including the tremendous St Quay Portrieux, Plogrescant and Perros Guirec, which means that you have the choice of secluded sandy beaches or busier promenades. You can also visit local towns and charming harbours. The beautiful Island of Flowers (or Isle de Brehat) is a very popular destination for guests at Le Manoir and guests can go by ferry to the island from Paimpol - there are no cars on the island.

There are also many chateaux to visit, including the 15th century Chateau de Roche Jagu. In the local area there are equestrian centres and superb golf courses.
