About the neighbourhood
Central Brittany is the land which tourism forgot. Big blue open skies illuminating the wonderful patchwork of green fields, glorious deciduous woodlands, rolling hills and stunning coastlines and beaches. In the field opposite our holiday cottage at Trévenec the maize waves gently in the breeze awaiting the harvest. Yet only 5 minutes away is one of the most extraordinary heritage sites in Europe, with giant statues of Breton Saints situated on a hilltop known to Romans and Celts looking out over a wonderful 360- degree panorama! Also within easy reach are Roman aqueducts, Napoleonic canals, the long distance cycle track where the railway once ran, markets in local towns on every day of the week, chateaux, museums, theme parks, famous towns like Concarneau, Quimper, Morlaix, Lannion, P...
