Days Out

Swimming pool


Just 15 minutes away are the slides and chutes of Aquarive. This parc has great facilities for those with physical disabilities. The longest chute in Brittany is found at ‘Les Balneides’, which also has an indoor heated swimming pool. 

Pont Aven


Pont-Aven, under 35 km away, is the place to be inspired! Many famous artists have spent time here and to see it through their eyes take the ‘Painter route’ tour.


Benodet beach


Bénodet is just a short stroll along the coast and welcomes you to visit its promenade cafés, crêperies and restaurants, as well as sandy beaches. Taste the local delicious jam and chutney and see how it’s made at L’Atelier des saveurs, ride the seaside train, discover the biscuit factory or take a look around the seaside museum.
