Pen Ar Pont is in four acres of its own grounds and surrounded by forty acres of woodland that is full of paths used for horse-riding and biking as well as walking. We are next to the River Leguer where one can kayak, and fishing is available for salmon and sea trout. Only a local licence is necessary; there are not riparian rights in France.
We are fifteen minutes from Lannion, a thriving market town with a large weekly outside market on Thursdays, many mediaeval buildings and good quality boutiques and restaurants. The sea is twenty minutes from Pen Ar Pont at St Michel-en-Greve close to the magnificent Pink Granite Coast where there are numerous sandy beaches with opportunities for wind-surfing, fishing, boat trips and swimming, or even just walking along the stretches of coastline line like the Sentier des Douaniers, (‘the customs officers’ walk,’ formerly used by smugglers.)
Pen Ar Pont is an old farm where there are extensive grounds to saunter round and see the poultry and sheep, as well as woodpeckers, jays – and if one gets up early, there is also the odd deer and fox. In an old converted barn, it is possible to play table tennis and darts.
