Discoveries for two in Corseul 

After the Middle Ages, head for the Roman Empire, within the mysterious remains of Corseul! After strolling through the town, extend your bucolic walk to the ruins of the Temple of Mars and Clos Mulon. Then reach the ruins of Château de Montafilan, located on a steep hill and surrounded by two deep valleys. An expanse of greenery as far as the eye can see! Isn't it beautiful?  

For an unusual visit: discover the Temple of Mars in augmented reality: At the foot of the ruins of the Temple of Mars on the Haut-Bécherel site, free visit, browse the site using a smartphone or tablet and visualize the building as it was more than 1800 years ago! Audios, videos and games to experience heritage while having fun!

If Roman remains are not your cup of tea, be tempted by a gentle afternoon of fishing at the Val de Gravel pond in Corseul. Between two takes, let yourself be guided by the slight lapping of the water and the movement of the fish. An incentive to daydream, also very popular for picnics! 🧺 Continue the walk, letting yourself be led by the flow of the river... On your rods, get ready, shoot! 🎣

Admire the nature that surrounds you! On your way, collect the most beautiful autumn leaves you find. This is also a great opportunity to start a herbarium. After all, it’s the simplest things that make us happy every day! 💐

In a cozy and “so British” atmosphere, Rémi welcomes you warmly and offers you a whole host of snacks. There is something for everyone: tea, chocolate, coffee, pastries and sweets of all kinds. And all, home! 🧁

Maritime getaway: the sea, even in winter!

Need to take a breath of iodized air? You miss the sea air, and we understand you! Impossible for us to wait for summer to go back. 🌊 So cast off the sailors! Here is a program that will delight young and old alike. 

It's time to get wet!

We don't often think about it, but walking in the water is an activity that is more than beneficial for your health! 🦶 Although a bit refreshing, sea water is as effective for a good sports session as it is for disconnecting from the outside world. The opportunity to get closer to the surrounding nature and reinvigorate yourself! 💦

Water walking tempts you? Our partners will be delighted to accompany you: 

👉 Castin Penguins (aquatic health walk)

An alternative to swimming, to say the least… mind-blowing!

For those who want to get closer to the water without setting foot in it, it's possible! Try sand yachting to get your fill of thrills. Hair blowing in the wind, breathe in the fresh sea air and glide across the water at full speed... It's like shooting an action movie! 📹

 

Take a lesson with one of our partners!

👉 Avel Land Sailing (closed from November to February)

👉 Nautical club Saint-Jacut-de-la-Mer (open all year)

👉 Fréhel Nautical Center (open all year)

Seafood tasting for a local lunch

Didn't you think you'd visit Dinan Cap Fréhel without tasting the region's delicious oysters? 🦪 As you travel through Brittany, you will have the opportunity to discover different varieties, such as hollow, flat and horse's foot oysters. All these names mean nothing to you? No worries, the most important thing is to enjoy them. 😋 For the most gourmand among you, we recommend Breton oysters accompanied by shallot sauce and a good glass of white wine. A pure delight!
