Discovery activities, beaches, outings ... Discover Brittany family!
Stay with us in our charming Chambres d’hôtes and gîtes in Brittany, a chance to create and share intense, fun and often instructive time together. Here are a few ideas for those exceptional moments of family life.
Sand castles, fishing along the briny edge, water sports, or simply lying back relaxing. Each to his own.
Less than 10 minutes from the Manoir de la Villeneuve, Maison d’hôtes in the Côtes d’Armor, you can enjoy long beautiful stretches of white sandy beach.
- The Beach at Val André with its 21/2 km of white sandy beach bordered by a pedestrian promenade; this beach is safe for children and is monitored during the season.
- The Plage des Vallées, wilder but also monitored in season, is overlooked by the 18-hole Golfcourse. Rockpool fishermen will find any number of rocky pools to explore.
The Plage de la Ville Berneuf which stretches away to Erquy, is the perfect spot to practise sand-sailing, while the more intrepid can try hang-gliding.
I love these two small beaches near Dahouet, which are family-friendly and more sheltered from the wind :
- The beach at Port Morvan
- The beach at Pissot
