Somewhere I read in a book about Brittany: "Arriving with an open mouth":
Waves from azure to emerald green, a blue sky with whirly clouds, soft pink granite blocks that are so bizarre formed by the wind and the water that it looks like an artist has helped. That kind of images and of course important cultural locations dominate the anticipation and memory of Brittany. The former stepchild of the country is nowadays very popular. Which is not to say that you are looking for peace in the summer here.

Brittany is actually the French equivalent of Wales, Scotland and Ireland and is a 'Celtic nation' on the mainland. Brittany consists of the Argoat (inland), once covered with a dense forest, and the Armor (the coast), a paradise for sailors and fishermen. And then there are the islands, each with its own character.

Brittany has much more to offer than just the varied coast, so visit inland with medieval castles and mysterious menhirs, upright stones. And do not forget the pleasant shopping streets, but also the historic churches in the old villages and towns.
Lac de Guerledan:
lac vol
This beautiful lake is just 15 km from La Cassière.
The lake is located near the city of Mûr-de-Bretagne, this city is also called the heart of Brittany. There is the 400 ha lake in the vicinity of a 4,000 ha forest and heathland. Every year many visitors come to this area because of the megalithic monuments and the sporting outdoor activities. The lake is reclaimed every 30 years for maintenance of the dam, the last time this was in 2015-2016. We then walked over the bottom of this lake and saw the remnants of the old lockguard houses. Now the lake is full again and a source of activities, there is a beautiful walkway along the shores of the lake and sometimes you imagine yourself in a very different region of France through the huge rockeries, it is very hilly here, to almost 300 meters high.

The history of the abbey "Bon Repos".

Founded in the 12th century, the abbey has experienced a period of prosperity before it gradually fell into ruin. In 1986, a group of enthusiasts decided to restore.

The framework is idyllic. Located in the heart of the Quénécan forest on the banks of the Blavet, the Cistercian Abbey proudly erects its silhouette.
The legend tells the story that Alain III de Rohan, when he was hunting, saw an apparition of the Blessed Virgin asking him to found an abbey in this place. He executed her request and founded 'Bon Repos' in 1184. During the French revolution, the abbey was sold as a national property and it fell into ruin.
After a twenty-year restoration, Bon Repos Abbey has opened its doors to the public. Of the church from the 13th century there are only a few remains to be seen, but the buildings from the 18th century and the monastery are certainly worth a visit. Exhibitions of contemporary art are now held in these buildings.

Route du Lin:

Did you know that more than 35,000 people lived on flax in Central Brittany from the 17th to the 19th century? Two centuries which were the golden age of Breton textile activity!

The "Route du Lin" connects two museums located in Central Brittany "maison des Toiles" in Saint-Thélo and the "Atelier-Musée du Tissage" in Uzel, the world of flax and the production history from seed to fiber. In a fun and interactive way you will experience the history of linen weaving in central Brittany, where more than 35,000 people worked here by making linen in Côtes d'Armor between the 17th and 19th centuries. The Breton textile industry, flax grown in Trégor, was spun and woven in central Brittany on hand looms by the artisans, and the sheets were then bought by traders who traded via St. Malo to Cadiz in Spain.
