10 Things or more to do in... Cote de Penthievre

  1. Pleneuf Val Andree Golf. Par 72, 6382 yards. Players comment:- This golf course is the best and most enjoyable course I have ever played. Perfect for small groups of mixed abilities this course has it all. Spectacular views, fast true greens and every hole presents a different challenge, a links course second to none. course website
  2. La Latte fort Pointe de la Latte. This photogenic fort perches on a rocky promontory. Drawbridges cross two natural fissures in a rock, which form a sea moat at high tide.
  3. Cap Frehel. This renowned beauty spot is one of the most dramatic promontories, and shouldn't be missed. Gnarled grey cliffs rise to a grand height of 230ft. Visit the lighthouse and eat at the café which hangs over the cliffs!
  4. Haras Nationale, Lamballe. France's second largest stud accommodating up to 400 horses, including powerful Breton draught horses. Summer guided tours through the stable, carriage house, harness rooms and farriery.
  5. St Malo intra muros. The old walled citadel on its apron of sand is a marvellous place to stroll. Beaches on the outside and a lovery shopping and eating area in the inside.
  6. Ile de Brehat. This idyllic island lies about a mile off shore. It is a low lying wooded paradise, with little to do, but the look of the place is hard to resist. Les Vedettes de Brehat shuttle back and forth throughout the summer from various port along the coast.
  7. Coastal walk The whole of the coast can be walked along the waymarked GR34 known as the 'sentier des douaniers' the customs officers path. Follow our director Jeremy Waldron on his epic journey on the blog. View the blog.
  8. Cider farm. La Ferme des Landes Notre Dame du Guildo, neat Matignan. For a number of years Jehan Lefevre has been making his delicious cider and apple juice using local fruit. Came here to sample and buy and see the little exhibition. There is also a farmers market every Friday in July and August, with stalls, demonstrations, and musical entertainment.
  9. Chateau de Bienassis. Between Erquy and Pleneuf Val Andre this beautiful 15th and 16th century fortified edifice, with fine formal French gardens, has been in the same family since 1880.
