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 cultural life of the town is vibrant with a theatre and numerous artistic, sporting events and entertainments taking place right through the year. The highlight of the calendar is the Fete Des Remparts which takes place every 2 years - next scheduled for 2014. This is one of the biggest medieval festival in Europe and makes an unforgettable weekend.

The Port itself is animated in the summer with various events : fireworks display and traditional 'bal musette' on July 13th, nautical jousting and paddling events, artist weekend...

Nearly next door to the house is the 'Maison de la Rance' shop which organises outings to discover the fauna and flora of this particular ecosystem.

From the house, turn left and walk, cycle of take the long boat to Léhon, a beautiful village with outdoor swimming pool and historical abbey, or turn rignt and go towards the pretty village of Taden, and further on, the lovely 'Port de Lyvet'.
