MOTORCYCLES, HOLIDAYS AND TOURING IN BRITTANY, FRANCE; BIKER FRIENDLY ACCOMMODATION  

Roger and Linda offer a choice of three holiday cottages, stone house (sleeps up to 7 people), the wooden house (sleeps up to 6 people), and the wood cabin (sleeps 2) situated in the heart of rural Brittany, a location of beauty, peace and seclusion.

It is an ideal base from which to explore Brittany, a rich and diverse heritage to be discovered, from the monolithic stones of Carnac to the submarine pens of St Nazaire, the rugged coastline of the north to the foam crested waves and endless sandy beaches of the south. Peace, tranquillity and clean air, commodities difficult to find in an ever stressful world, all can be found here in abundance.

 
 
     
 

 

A countryside where an unpolluted night sky is pierced by a panoply of twinkling stars. Experience the luxury of the open roads whether by motorcycle, car, bike or simply walk along the many bridle ways and footpaths.

Stop along the way and sample the delights of the famous Breton seafood platters or try the mouth watering traditional Breton crepes washed down with a glass of refreshing cider. Bikers, Burlaouen and Brittany offer a formidable combination. Hidden away at the end of a lane amid 20 acres of woods, fields, stream and a pretty wildlife lake, can be found the holiday cottages and house of Roger and Linda.

 
 

There is no through traffic or passing cars to disturb the peace and you will be serenaded to sleep at night by the sound of the wind in the trees, the hoot of an owl or the bark of a fox.

However, should you seek good cheer and gregarious company, then look no further than "Anzas" bar close by in the village of Lanrivain, a brisk walk of 3 kilometres. There you will find a traditional Breton bar selling local Breton beer brewed in the locality - a visit to the brewery can be arranged. Enjoy the best of French cuisine in the nearby restaurant of "The Pellinec" or sample a traditional "routier" lunchtime meal offering simple wholesome food served to you at the bar in Lanrivain, "Chez Jerome et Virginie".

 

 

   

After lunch take a trip to the "Toul Goulic" situated close to Lanrivain and explore this mysterious hidden valley where a nascent river tumbles through boulders, the size of houses, disappears and reappears as it cascades down to the valley bottom. Should you feel a little more adventurous then, a short distance from the Toul Goulic is the lake at Tremagat where for a modest sum in the holiday season, you can hire kayaks, sail boards or canoes.

A pleasant 25min ride will take you to the inland resort area of the Lac De Guerledan, a huge lake where all manner of water sports can be found from peddaloes to water skiing. A little further a field - a 50min ride will take you to the north Brittany coast.

 
 
     

At Plouha you can follow the paths of the resistance as they smuggled allied airmen back to the coast passing through a tunnel in the cliffs to the hidden cove of the "plage de Bonapart". It was from here they were rescued and ferried back to England and freedom. Carry on along the coast and visit the ruin of "abbey de Beauport".

Then on to the port of Paimpol where the cod fishing sailing boats used to leave for their long and arduous journey to the Icelandic fishing grounds. Finish the day by watching the sun as it sets low over bays and islands, across a sea stretching all the way to America.

 
 
 

 

We can also provide a typical Breton "crepe" (pancake) evening or a BBQ. We have plenty of covered bike space and a well equiped workshop.

There is an abundance of wildlife in the area ranging from red squirrels to pine martins to wild boar and deer and if you are very lucky you might see an otter passing through the lake. Overlooking the little lake is a cabin perched on stilts from where you can sit, relax and maybe catch a glimpse of flashing cobalt blue as a kingfisher skims the water seeking its prey.
