The historical centre surrounded by its impressive belt of remparts, overlooking the Rance valley, where the port area is nestled, can be reached from the house by crossing the halfpenny bridge and climbing up the picturesque 'rue du Jerzual' with its half timbered houses converted into artist galleries and craft shops.

The highlight of the calendar is the Fete Des Remparts which takes place every 2 years - next scheduled for 2014.
