    Dinard.


    Dinard's reputation as the "Cannes of the North" has attracted a wide variety of stars. Joan Collins is a frequent visitor, and Winston Churchill enjoyed holidaying on the River Rance. It is claimed locally that Alfred Hitchcock visited Dinard and based the house used in his most famous movie Psycho on a villa standing over the Plage de l'Écluse.

    Dinan.

    The medieval town on the hilltop has many fine old buildings some as early as 13th century.


    A major highlight in the calendar is Dinan's Fête des Remparts. The town is transformed with decoration and many locals dress up in medieval garb for this two-day festival. It occurs only every other year.


    Oceanopolois - Brest.

    Is the French equivalent of ‘Sea World,’ and is a great day out. There are all sorts of aquariums, sharks, coral, reef fish, mangroves etc.

    There are shops, restaurants and a fantastic outdoor activity park for the kids.

    Quimper.

    Quimper is the ancient capital of La Cornouaille, Brittany’s most traditional region, and has a distinctive Breton character. Shops and flags celebrating the region's Celtic heritage can be found throughout the city. It has a fantastic Cathedral with a buzzing town square surrounded by bars and restaurants.

    Lac du Drennec.


    Completed in 1982, this artificial reservoir with an area of ​​110 hectares, fueled in part by the Elorn and Mougau, supplies water to one part of the North Finistère, including Brest Metropole Oceane, Landerneau and Landivisiau. Visitor can sail, swim and walk on the trails around the lake.

    Morlaix, winding streets of cobbled stones Huelgoat, lake side bars and restaurants St Malo, climb on the cities walls and ramparts

    Morlaix.

    The old quarter of the town has winding streets of cobbled stones and overhanging houses constructed of stone and timber.


    Morlaix is well placed for those who enjoy sea sports such as surfing, sand buggying, kite flying etc. There are coastal paths for walks. Morlaix has France’s tallest lighthouse, the Phare de L’île Vierge. Inland activities include bowling, golf, horse-riding and many others.

    St Malo.

    St Malo is small, but small is often beautiful. The walls of the city are 20 feet thick and were originally built in the 14th century. You can climb up on top of the ramparts and walk around them.


    The city itself needs to be seen to be believed. There are wonderful old streets, some are ancient, crammed with shops and restaurants, bars, bistros and boutiques.

    Huelgoat.


    The picturesque lakeside town of Huelgoat is situated within the heart of the Parc d’Armorique in Brittany France. It is surrounded by the “Enchanted Forest” of some 1167 hectares, where cascading waterfalls are fed from the river Argent.


    There’s lots to see and do. A visit to the tourist information office is recommended for further details.

    Huelgoat and surrounding places of interest

    Huelgoat has plenty to occupy you with lovely walks around the lake and in the forest, along with numerous restaurants, bars, shops and creperies.

    However, should you wish to venture further afield, Brittany is renowned for its beautiful scenery. There are over 600km of coastline with fabulous sandy beaches, rocky coves, dramatic cliffs, pretty harbours and offshore islands to explore.

    The North and West coasts are easily accessible from Huelgoat for days or half days out and you will be spoilt for choice. Why not take the opportunity to step back in time and take a boat trip to the Ile de Brehat?


    Inland there are woodlands, lakes, rivers, and charming historic towns and villages to visit.


    Just west of Huelgoat, about 15 minutes drive away is Lac du Drennec , a lovely inland lake which has sandy beaches along its shores, a playground for the children and a lakeside café/bar.

    If you fancy shopping in a large town, then Carhaix and Morlaix are the nearest ones. Quimper, about an hour’s drive south, and is also worth a visit.

    Brittany’s South coast is a bit further away, about an hour’s drive. Again, the coastline here is stunning, with traditional seaside towns, bars, restaurants and boat trips available.


    We’ve shown a few places of interest below, all of which are within an hours drive of Huelgoat. If you find somewhere new to visit, then why not include this in our guest book along with comments about your stay with us?

    Ile de Brehat.

    Brehat is actually an archipelago composed of two main islands, separated only at high tide.


    Many day-trippers come to Brehat every day by the ferry service and visit the main tourist attractions, the Paon Rosedo lighthouses, the St-Michel chapel, the Guerzido beach, the Birlot water-mill and the Verrerie of Bréhat.
