From the cottage you can make splendid walks and VTT (mountain bike) trails. Maps and booklets are available at the cottage. Brittany is a real hiking paradise, in almost every village hiking trails of about 11-12 km are indicated. Quite often, the trails cross old ‘creux’ (hollow) and/or and beautiful small sandy paths.
In Plouec du Trieux there is a bakery so fresh bread is available every day (except Mondays) and there is a bar with sells some groceries (closed on Wednesday).
Pontrieux is a pleasant village just 3 km away with old washing places, squares, restaurants, shops, a supermarket, galleries and many flowers. There is a small weekly market on Monday morning.

The coast of Brittany is just 15 km away and is very varied, but also the interior is worth visiting. The healthy sea air gives you a relaxed feeling and you will feel reborn again when returning home. In Brittany, each season has something special to offer.

Throughout the year there is always something blooming which makes Brittany so special in a lovely atmosphere.
