At the heart of Brittany’s legendary forest the Argoat, the waters of the River Blavet join with the Nantes-Brest canal to form the Lac de Guerlédan, a magnificent stretch of water surrounded by forest & one of the finest sights of Central Brittany. It is a renowned centre for watersports & fishing with popular sandy beaches suitable for all the family, tour boats, floating restaurant, sailing schools, canoe hire, a water-skiing club, crazy golf & friendly bars, restaurants & crêperies also offering motorboat & pedalo hire. At Crampoisic, just 5 minutes from the lake and set in lovely countryside we offer gîte accommodation for up to six.

Navigable from the lake, and easily reached by road, the peaceful Nantes-Brest canal flows through the Quénécan forest to Bon Repos. Here, in a beautiful setting, is found the Cistercian Abbaye de Bon Repos, which was founded in the 12C, rebuilt in the 14C & modernised in the early 18C. It was sacked & destroyed during the French Revolution & is now undergoing renovation, financed by a "Son et Lumière" in early August each year. This enacts the local history and legends in a spectacular sound & light show with over 400 actors as well as many horses, goats & dogs! There is a marvellous Sunday morning market at Bon Repos from Easter to All Saints Day. There is also a market at Mûr de Bretagne on Friday evenings, always with entertainment in the form of music, dance or even both!
