About the neighbourhood
Less than 30 minutes from the beautiful mediaeval city of Quimper, the region capital, it makes an excellent base from which to explore this truly unspoilt and inspiring part of the world.

The roads in this part of Brittany are delightfully empty, even in the height of summer, as they sweep through the glorious rolling countryside, perfect for motorbikes (and open top sports cars and cyclists). We have a covered lean to where you can park your Harley(s) or Ducati or whatever - and a lockable barn for bicycles.

Public transport is virtually non-existent, so your own independent transport is advised. There are excellent cycle routes all over Brittany and the 300+ kilometre cycle path along the Nantes Brest canal passes the house, so ideal for a cycling holiday. Plenty of room to park...
