A wonderful area for a sightseeing holiday with so much to do! We are about 35 minutes from the lovely beaches at St Malo and Dinard, less than that from Mont st Michel and Fougeres, also near medieval Dinan on the river Rance, Combourg with its castle and the shops and markets of Rennes. The D Day landing beaches and Bayeux are an easy day trip. The foret de Villecartier only a kilometre away, has lakeside walks, boat trips, pony rides, children's activities and a treetop assault course. There are two fine golf courses within a short distance; canoeing and fishing are also available.


Antrain is a small market town just over a kilometre away, with a supermarket, post office, boulangeries, pharmacies, banks, bars and some other shops. La Fontenelle is closer but smaller and has a combined bar/restaurant with its own boulangerie. La Fontenelle holds an annual musical festival for the friends of Jean Langlais. There are several attractive chateaux close by, and two fine indoor swimming pools as well as a lakeside beach and boating at the Etang de Boulet.
