In addition to the fabulous coastline and the local towns there are also lots of other local attractions to see and do. These are listed below.
There are two local tree climbing centres. The Indian Forest at Morieux has tree climbing for over 4s and a new adventure forest has opened in St Cast Le Guido and this is, according to feedback from our guests, really good for the little ones. Children from 3 years old can enjoy it.
This is a theme and water park about 40 minutes away from us. Our children have loved this place ever since they were toddlers and continue to love it now.
Another theme park and undercover water park recommended for younger children.
This is the famous cycling on disused train tracks. Two bikes with a basket in between to put the kids that are too small for their own bike and the picnic! Can be quite hard work with two children in the basket. Be warned! Children from about the age of 7/8 can manage their own bike. Babies can go in the basket in their car seats.
Giant trampolines and nets in the trees. A brand new attraction for kids from any age but would suggest they should be able to walk. If the attraction is very busy with lots of bigger children on the nets, the management sometimes introduce a minimum age limit of 4 years old. Under 8s need to be accompanied by an adult. Also a little restaurant, heritage garden and a very cute and quaint brocante at the same location.
Brand new wakeboarding centre where you can do boarding and water ski-ing amongst other things.
This is a medieval fort that juts out into the sea. It is privately owned and maintained and was where Kurt Douglas filmed Vikings. It has fabulous views, medieval gardens and is well worth a visit.
A renovated medieval castle located in the middle of a forest. There is a dressing up box for children on the way in for any budding Knights and Princesses!
This is a really well maintained and managed zoo and the animals have lots of space and are well looked after. In addition to the animals there are also bouncy castles and play areas, a maze if you go when it has grown, a brilliant falconry display. Be careful not to eat otherwise you may be swooped on and your snack stolen!
There are new indoor and outdoor pools with slides and a little waterpark at Jugon Les Lacs. Suitable for babies and toddlers and my children love it there too (although Sam maybe outgrowing it slightly).
There is a mountain biking centre with lots of tracks of various difficulties. These are pretty hardcore so be warned. There are green runs through to black runs. There are also pedoloes, kayaks, wind surfing and other watersports on the lake.
A beautiful lake with nice walk with a new Centre Loisirs where you can hire pedoloes, go climbing, water ski-ing. A medieval abbey with restaurant.
A small eco museum on life in Brittany in 1924 and some farm animals for the children to see.
Catch a boat to the island with no cars. Lovely beaches. Beautiful gardens. Very relaxing day out with different flowers and fauna.
A great aquarium with a little submarine tour the kids love. Good on a rainy day.
