Fortunately there are lots of fun things to keep the kids occupied within easy reach of the gites as you can see on our Children's Activities page. As well as the traditional theme and adventure parks that you would expect, we have a few suggestions of places that we think your children may enjoy visiing whilst staying at Ty Hir in central Brittany.
There are three exhibition pavilions featuring tropical, polar and temperate ecosystems. I was particularly impressed with the polar zone where you could view a variety of penguins both on land and under water.
The are plenty of places to eat on site, from the self service canteen where we ate, with a stunning view over the Rade de Brest, to a brasserie and take away outlets. You will find plenty of places for a picnic and there is a great playground which the kids really seemed to enjoy.
During summer you can hire an electric boat from Port du Lac on the lake. Finish your visit with a trip to the ice cream parlour on the edge of the lake or stop at one of the many Creperies in Huelgoat where you can enjoy sweet and savoury Breton pancakes.
Our closest sandy beach is Plage Pentrez at the start of the Crozon Peninsular. It is a 45 minute drive from the cottages. See our Beaches page for some of our favourites.
There are also many interesting forts and abbeys to be found locally which you can discover on our Chateaus, Abbeys & Forts webpage.
Be dwarfed by huge menhirs reaching over 8 metres in height and ponder how they moved them to the site and then raised them into place.
