This area is a haven for people who are interested in painting landscapes or finding some other artistic inspiration. However, if activities of a more physical nature are more your thing, then this pleasant resort area also has more to offer. Being so close to the coast, most activities revolve around this, and so scuba diving, sea kayaking and fishing number amongst the options. Inland, horse riding, golf and tennis can all be fun to do, and the area is especially attractive if you are into hiking. Whilst most things are within easy reach of your holiday rental cottage in Plougasnou, it might be a good idea to have the use of a car on your vacation, hence why some people choose to drive over to France.
With access to a car, most of Brittany is within a couple of hour’s drive of your self catering accommodation in Plougasnou. A day trip over to Quimper is certainly recommended, and its medieval buildings and cobbled streets mingle well with its more modern side. The coastline is also a delight, with its unique pink granite and sandy bays. A little further afield, but well worth the trip, is the amazing and unique archaeological site of Carnac. This site has arguably the largest concentration of megalithic stones in Europe. Perhaps not as awe-inspiring as Stonehenge, but certainly the best site of its type in France.
