If you're enjoying the peace and tranquility of Pont Neo, close by you'll find the ancient fountain at La Clarté, Les Roches du Diable, where canoeing competitions are sometimes held, the deserted Chapelle de la Trinité on the road to Lanvénégen, the dramaticly gothic Chapelle de Sainte-Barbe at Le Faouët and so on.
For when you feel the need to get out and about, there are some truly spectacular things not far away.
It's obvious why Les Machines de l'Ile are one of the top attractions in all Brittany - they're incredible! These gigantic fantastical creatures can be seen roaming about on an industrial island in Nantes, not far from the centre. Buy a ticket, ride on the elephant and see a whole lot more in La Galerie des Machines. Nantes is a couple of hours from Pont Neo, but you can get there by train if you don't fancy the drive along the motorway. Easily worth the trip.
About an hour away at Carnac, on the coast between the beautiful Golfe du Morbihan and the equally beautiful Ria D'Etel, there are more than 3000 megaliths mysteriously arranged in rows over a few kilometres. Carnac is thought to be one of the oldest inhabited sites in Europe and the stones are quite a bit older than Stonehenge. Brave the crowds to marvel at what this was all about. Could it have been a neolithic earthquake detector as some have suggested?
If you're here in July or August, there are some festivals which you should not miss. The huge, slightly mad Festival InterCeltique in nearby Lorient during August draws Celts from all over the world for a celebration of music, dance and costume. If folk is not your thing, perhaps the Festival des Vielles Charrues is. This rock festival, the French equivalent of Glastonbury, takes over the town of Carhaix - about an hour north of Pont Neo - in the middle of July.
