Exchanges with travelers

I am passionate about history: reader "archeology" for 20 years. I like to put the great history in one local context including genealogy. I like to exchange, enrich me every knowledge. The period Celtic and Gallo-Roman particularly interest me.

Maybe is this the reason why I live on a Roman road? Ancient traveler myself, I lived 5 months in Ireland, he long ago to coat me this Gaelic culture. Good Breton somehow!

Knowing my country, past and present, I can usefully advise the traveler, including restaurants !!! Because I also love to cook and I enjoy good food.


The house is in a quiet area near the forest conservatory. You access it from the house, directly on foot or by bike, trails to walk and go to the estuary of TRIEUX where you expect unforgettable views especially the CHATEAU DE LA ROCHE JAGU.


You can reach us by train, the nearest "station" is stopping Frynaudour.

By car, from the 4 ways ST BRIEUC - BREST / 4 on the tracks, take the 2nd exit for PAIMPOL by LANVOLLON, the first output PAIMPOL by the odds being too long.

LANVOLLON - PAIMPOL / Go to the roundabout at the entrance of Paimpol do not go into town, take the direction of Lannion on a small ring road 2 km, you arrive at a second roundabout, you do not go Lannion, but the next direction PENHOAT, the following being PLOURIVO, that should not take either, on this road Penhoat, to 6 km, you cross the village at the exit take the second right after the tobacconists coffee- . You will then see the second signs 300m on your right "the sea is in the woods lodgings" park on the parking lot.
