Discover the Pays de Enclos (Parish enclosure country) From the 15th to 17th century, central Finistère  enjoyed a period of unusual prosperity due to the trade of linen canvas. As people from this area were quite devout, a large part of the money from the trade went to their clergy and to the building of enclos paroissiaux (parish closes).

Each village in the area tried to rival its neighbours and build the finest parish possible, which  resulted in  a series of calvaries, ossuaries and churches that look unusually large and ornate for small villages.

This phenomenon was particularly developed in a series of village's  which form the “circuit des Enclos”. Ploudiry and its adjoining village La Martyre are two of these picturesque villages. 

Discover the Monts d’Arrée and le Parc Régional D’Armorique : Go walking, horse riding or cycling

The Mont d’Arrée is the highest peak of the Armorican Massif and offers a magnificent contrast of scenery from its woods and forests to its wild area of rough-hewn beauty between moors, heath lands and peat bogs.

It is a land of myth and romance with similarities to Cornwall, Wales and Ireland. It offers the most spectacular views and is the perfect place for nature lovers.  You can discover the area on foot (there are a wide range of marked trails) on horseback or by bike.

Watersports

The fascinating gems of the northern coast and the Crozon peninsula are less than a 40 min drive away. Renowned for its beautiful, long and sandy beaches, this is an area which is most definitely worth exploring. 

The Lac du Drennec is only 15 km away from the gite and is ideal for swimming , sailing, windsurfing (there is a sailing club) and is also a good spot for trout fishing.
