About the neighbourhood
We live in the heart of the beautiful Breton Countryside and are surrounded by fields and lovely quiet country lanes that are perfect for walking and cycling. We do have a couple of small towns that have well stocked supermarkets, petrol stations, banks, churches and small shops. Ploeuc sur Lie, which is just 6 kms away, has a weekly Thursday market. Brittany is a Peninsula and as such we are surrounded by lovely beaches from soft sand to rocky outcrops, lots within an easy drive.
Getting around
It is necessary to have a car to get around as there is no public transport and very few taxi cabs in the area. We do, however, offer a taxi service if you would like to go out to any of the local restaurants or bars so that you don't have to drink and drive. We also offer a baby sitting service if you would like to take advantage of a child free romantic dinner in any of the nearby restaurants.
