There is a small supermarket in our local village of Camors (3km), and in Baud (7km) there are 3 large supermarkets and a wealth of other shops.
Loads! Our personal favourites are Le Coin de Feu, Flamambos and Le Cheval Blanc. All within 7/10km of us. We also offer a taxi service to local restaurants so you can sample the local Ciders or fantastic French wines.
There are numerous stunning beaches close by…from the popular beaches in Carnac and Quiberon to the quiet beaches of Erdeven and Etel. All are are around 40 minutes drive away.
You can hire bikes from the Utopia Adventure park in Camors and the Canoe and Kayak centre in Baud. Both places offer cycle routes.
As mentioned above, there is a High ropes course, suitable for all ages and bike hire in Camors. There is a Canoeing and Kayaking centre in Baud on the beautiful river Blavet. Kingoland is a theme park well worth a visit! Many beaches offer watersport activities.

As we are in a rural setting a car is essential for you to get the most out of this beautiful region.
This depends on your location. Brittany Ferries offer regular crossings from Portsmouth to St Malo or Caen, Plymouth to Roscoff, plus there is also the Tunnel, however this means a longer drive at this end – not a great hardship as the roads over here are so good! Some guests from further up the country (ie. Scotland) have chosen to fly to either Dinard, Rennes or Nantes and hire a car.
There are no toll roads in Brittany, but there are in the rest of France, so this is worth remembering if you come via the Tunnel.
We have a local English speaking doctor and Pharmacist (also medically trained) in Camors. The nearest hospital is in Pontivy, and we would always be available to translate for you if necessary.
