14Fishing, Rambling, biking, water sports and horse riding can all be done practically on your doorstep, we are based in the country with no immediate neighbours and yet only 5 minutes to the lovely Flower village of St.Aignan, where you can buy your fresh baguettes, have a drink in the bar and a super  meal in the creperie.


The river Blavet and the Nantes-Brest canal run through the village and can be walked or cycled for miles. A good stop point is Pontivy for a drink in a café bar, or if you prefer a shorter distance head in the opposite direction, 10 minutes from Kerlun to Abbaye Bon Repos. The abbey is in a lovely setting and has lovely walks and a fairytale bar. There are great motorcycling roads around us and we can give you some great idea charts to do your own thing or take you on lead rides.

We have 4 acres of our own with various fruit trees, in season you can pick your own apples, chestnuts and walnuts! We have  lots  of wildlife in the area too; fox, hare, red squirrels, deer, wild boar,though you’d be very lucky to see one of these as they are very shy, salamanders, bats, owls and woodpeckers are all here, plus much more!!  cycling canal

5Brittany was made for biking, there are some superb roads whether you’re looking for a blast out or a cruise around taking in the sites and sounds, and with so little traffic in comparison to the uk it’s a pleasure!

We are bikers ourselves and are always happy for a ride out. We are also members of local motorcycling clubs who will welcome you with them on their group ride out days, or if you prefer we can recommend places for you to visit and roads to ride.
