The Area.

The area centres on the historic Nantes to Brest canal and although this is no longer navigable by boat you will often see canoes and kayaks making use of the "glissiers" (water slides).

 


Lake at Glomel


Rostrenen has three supermarkets, baker shops, chemists, internet facilities, banks and very good restaurants. Market day is Tuesday.
Glomel also has small village shops, pizza restaurant, baker and chemist.

As you cycle along the towpath you will come across small chapels, old farms and hamlets and at times you feel that time has forgotten this part of central Brittany - enjoy the peace and solitude.
You will be approximately one hours drive from all three of Brittany's coasts which offers the chance of a day out to explore.
