The many southern Brittany beaches are a little over an hour away with places to visit en route. A popular day out is to a forest location with walkways in the trees, rope swings etc. The advantage of being centrally located in Brittany is that one can also explore the north coast beaches and Mont St Michel - a 'must see' !
20 minutes to the east at Ploermel is an inland lake with sandy beach which is also popular with guests. On the other side of the lake there are gardens with picnic areas a 'Hydranga Walk' (The Hydranga is the Plant of Brittany) and a golf course with extensive views of the lake. There is also a disused railway which is great for cycling.
