For Families

The Ile aux Pies  
This 15km valley, which is the only listed ‘Grand Site Naturel’ in inland Brittany, bears the marks of human activity in all directions : the canal and its locks, orchards of grafted chestnut trees, fishing lakes and old granite, slate or clay quarries. It’s a great place for families with a wide choice of activities : cycling, walking, canoeing (Apach Bihan), horse-riding (Ferme du Ménéhy), adventure trails Escapades Verticales) and an enchanting story walk, topped off with a delicious crêpe (Marins d’Eau d’Oust).
