Being able to do the things you want to do when on holiday is important. If you just want to relax by the
pool or want to pursue your favourite sport you can. There are many places in the area which cater for your needs, below are
just some of the ideas.
Cycling and Walking
The local area is ideal for bike riding with many small quiet country lanes
to explore. Cycle along the tow path of the Nantes/ Brest canal or from Carhaix to Loudeac passing by Lac de Guerlédan
you can now cycle along the 111 kilometre long consolidated sand trail following the tracks of the old railway line. If you
want to leave the track there are 24 round trips which vary in length from 4 ½ to 16 ½ km.
Cycling in Cotes
Walking in Cotes
are numerous fishing lakes close to the house including those in St Gilles Vieux Marché, Corlay and Lac de Guerledan.
Fishing permits for public waters can be obtained from local newsagents (tabac) or bars and a fishing licence covers
all local areas and costs around 10 euros per day / 30 euros for 2 weeks.
There are a number of ‘Poney Clubs’ in the area where you can hire a
hack by the hour, around 15 Euros, or for the day at about 75 Euros, or you could have lessons and learn to ride. There
is Guerlédan Riding school near the lake and there is a horse museum in nearby Corlay.
