Southern Brittany is blessed with beautiful weather most of the year, there are days of rain, but it has a micro climate which means it is often 10 degrees more then the UK in the summer. It is ideally placed for so many beautiful places to visit and things to do all within an hour of the Gite. Below is a selection for you which really are a must to visit, there are of course many more, but we suggest a visit to a Tourist Office who will give you loads of suggestions etc. JOSSELIN (16km) - A very popular place, where there is a perfectly preserved stunningly beautiful chateau which is a medieval fortress and is still lived in by the Duke & Duchess of Rohan. This wonderful Chateau has been rated (2017) as the 3rd best chateau in the whole of France! Bastille Day 14th July, a very important date in history for the French which sets the storming of the Bastille in 1789. It has become a major public holiday. with numerous celebrations going on throughout France, Josselin is no exception and holds a Medieval Festival every 2 years, (re-enactment of medieval times) in the cobbled streets with its half timbered medieval houses, this will be happening this year 2018. LA GACILLY (44km) - A very pretty town, the home of Yves Rocher (cosmetics & perfumes) where the family still live. Outdoor Photo Festival (the largest in France), absolutely spectacular, focusing specifically on the environment, is held from June to end of September each year all around the town. VANNES (64km) - a beautiful walled city, full of art and history and is without doubt one of Brittany's most attractive sights and a must visit on any trip to the Gulf of Morbihan. PLOERMEL (15km) - Although a town with lots of shops, on the outskirts Lac au Duc is a large stunning lake measuring 5.5km, with a sandy beach, lots to do here, kayaks, canoes, pedalos, water skiing, fishing, bar/restaurant, plenty of parking, fun for all the family! Adjacent to the lake is Lac au Duc Golf Club, this is a little gem in Brittany, a very popular 9 hole golf courseMore
