The rural hamlet of Locunehen is 1 km from the village of Quistinic, with its many amenites, the peace and tranquility of the Blavet Valley can be enjoyed, whilst still being within an easy drive of the wonderful large, sandy beaches, to be found in this part of southern Brittany.

Quistinic is between the historic towns of Pontivy and Carnac in the heavily-wooded valley of the River Blavet. Conveniently situated to enjoy both the beautiful countryside and beaches, 30 to 40 minutes away, and easily accessed from the motorway only 7 kms away.

The beautiful Blavet Valley and surrounding area provides an activity filled holiday with plenty to do and see, or equally, the opportunity to enjoy the leisurely pace of life, indulging in the tranquility of rural French living and culture.

Perfect also for exploring the historic towns and châteaux of Josselin, Auray, Pontivy or Vannes, perhaps, to name but a few of the many architecturally rich towns and cities of the region.
