Your unsuspected nature destination... in the heart of Brittany
Take a chance on the essential and the unusual by exploring the Pontivy community and discovering its unsuspected treasures! Equidistant from the north and south coasts of Brittany, from Rennes and Brest, discover the Pontivy region, marked by the influence of the Rohan family since the Middle Ages.
Take a stroll through the streets and lanes and you'll discover a rich heritage of châteaux, chapels, villages, fountains and calvaries, and a wealth of expertise in sweet and savoury specialities. Napoleon 1st established his administrative and military centre here, Napoleonville. He decided to build the Nantes-Brest canal, a green setting along the water that runs through the region as far as the Cistercian abbey of Timadeuc. Its towpath will take you on foot, by bike or on horseback, or to the banks of Brittany's largest lake, Guerlédan, where beaches and landscapes reminiscent of an unusual corner of Scandinavia or Canada will make your stay unforgettable.
