About the location
This is a popular area for walkers due to the forested Léguer valley with its Grande Randonnée (GR34a).
Cyclists are well catered for with the quiet rural roads. The village has a welcoming and friendly cycling club who meet twice a week.
A long stretch of coast is within a 30 minute drive, with the closest points being 20 minutes. Great local beaches include Saint-Michel-en-Greve, Beg Léguer, Trébeurden and Perros-Guirec.
Other popular coastal spots include Locquémeau, Tregastel and Locquirec.
