To the North, South and West are many sandy bays, each one with its own character. Some are used by traditional fishermen sculling their small wooden boats & setting down their nets & pots. Seafood is plentiful.
Our “out and about” Guidebook will tell you of places of interest to visit, stories of local customs (such as music, dancing and Fest Noz) and also local restaurants and crêperies to sample the French cuisine. Four course lunches can be found for £10 including wine.
Quimper to the south is well know for its pottery and has hypermarkets too. Over the years many French artists have chosen the villages of Brittany as their retreat & many towns exhibit their work, adding to the culture of the region.
Fishing and water sports are close at hand as Belle Vue lies central for the Nantes-Brest canal, the lake at Glomel with its sandy beach and also the lake at Mur de Bretagne. Both lakes have hire centres for canoes, dingy sailing or wind surfing.
Country walks are a pleasure, starting from the farm we have many circular walks of varying lengths on easy to find tracks, paths and small roads, allowing you to explore the valley of unspoilt hamlets.
If you fancy cycling, you will be able to get further a field. Quiet well signposted country lanes, travelled by a few tractors and cars, provide a change from city cycling.
Back on the farm we have chickens and a flock of 60 sheep.
Our outdoor, fenced swimming pool is situated at the far end of the Farmhouse and Blue Cottage lawn. It is open from May to September to resident holiday makers. Measuring 10 meters x 5 meters with roman end steps, that are ideal for the youngest of children to paddle from & perfect for children to learn and improve their swimming.
In the shallows it is one metre deep, then drops down to two meters in the deep end. The water is solar heated to 24°C. There are sun loungers on the wood decking, ideal for soaking up the sun.
Swings, slide, sandpit, buckets & spades, boules court & table tennis … it’s all here to play with. You can even borrow our seaside toys to go to the beach!
At Belle Vue we have a maximum of ten family units here at one time. It is very easy to join in with activities and get to know people. This we feel is important. It is an element of a Belle Vue holiday that we wish to retain in the coming years . Our own children have flourished on the friendships they make and the activities that they partake in during the year.
