From the outstanding network which criss-crosses this region between land and sea, linking ‘cités de caractère’ (towns of character) set in nature conservation areas, allow yourself to combine gentle exercise with sightseeing along specifically designed traffic-free paths.

Want to get to know the real Brittany? Spend the day with a local and live a true Brittany Experience with Isabelle! Get away from it all between the sea and marshland, all the way to Cap Fréhel by electric bike.

Bracing walks, soaring cliffs, attractive beaches, stunning views over the Emerald Coast and the Channel Islands, a seabird reserve, an historic lighthouse and a fortified castle straight out of a story book – the wild and windswept area around the Cap Fréhel peninsula has got plenty to interest.

The ups and downs of the Penthièvre coast are within everybody’s reach when you have an electrically assisted bicycle! The only time your breath will be taken away is when you see the stunning landscape from the tops of the steep cliffs. Our local landmarks here are the yellow gorse, the pink heather and the lighthouse at Cap Fréhel…  The itinerary brings you to magnificent panoramic view of a famous maritime scene: the district of Erquy, the port of Les Hôpitaux and the islet of Saint-Michel. The pink sandstone rises up from the waves, and tells the story of the quarrymen who made their lives here in little houses that look like mining cottages.

The vélo-route linking Brittany to Great Britain crosses Fréhel on approximatly twenty kilometers. A unique adventure near coastline landscapes, from each side of the Channel.
