Hi,
I have just returned and can recommend Webb's of Glomel if anyone is travelling in Brittany and needs to rest their head for a night or two.
Very interesting host and very welcoming.

safe riding
Rod

I love France and its hard to beat for camping and nice rural roads.

The only thing to be careful of there is a distinct lack of petrol/gas stations.There waslot of the automated ones but regularly found they would not work with our credit cards. Services on the motorways are ok but they are not usually located at interchanges.

I have usually had a diesel car there which is fine but I would hate to be travelling on a bike with a small gas tank.

Brittany has a lot going for it and a week there in good weather is magic. Try Josselyn, not too far from Lorient and Pontivy.

Every town or village that has a small supermarket has also got a petrol station these days. They are only manned when the shop is open and that does not include lunchtimes (12:00 to 14:00) most of the time. When not manned there is a card machine there for 24 hour services and most of the machines will accept UK debit/credit cards. If not then you fill find that locals will fill you up on their card as long as you give them the cash.
If you are on a budget then try to exit motorways and find the local supermarket to refuel as it can be 15% cheaper.

Well me and my gang were in the Discovery and only had to fill the day before we were leaving (didnt do a lot of driving).
The filling station beside Intermarche @ Rostrenen.
We were warned about the French card issue but it never was a problem....just paid cash .
Sunday's could be tricky as they shut early.
But, look, you get into the swing of thing's and soon learn the local way of doing things.

I guess if the weather was like it is now and you were on a bike it would be a little bit of heaven......great road surface, winding roads, lots of hills and lots to look at and explore.

Never saw a boat on the Nantes-Brest Canal.....I wonder have they boats in France at all ?

The Rohan Castle and medieval town @ Pontivy....brilliant, not to mention the extraordinary rocks and caves @ Huel-Goat.
