When you set off, you planned to visit Saint-Malo, Rennes and Mont Saint Michel.
That’s only natural! Those are the three star attractions when you come to stay at the Lion d’Or.
But this morning, something made you change your mind.
Was it a ray of sunshine, a gentle breeze, or the guidebook you leafed through at breakfast?
Perhaps you felt charmed by the most local destinations – the Le Rocher-Portail castle or the Rocher-Sénéchal, an admirable 17th-century structure located just a stone’s throw from your hotel. Or it may have been the scenic area of Fougères, a proud medieval town. Or maybe it was down to a yearning for unspoilt nature, preserved among elegantly contoured fields, wooded gardens, leafy forests and shimmering streams.
From Fougères castle to the footpaths
Here you are, in the narrow streets of Fougères, steeped in art and history. The fabulous town of Fougères, home to Europe’s largest medieval castle. And over there, is that a bird of prey following along the footpath? Nature lovers are in for a treat: 200 km of footpaths have been laid out to criss-cross this land of a thousand attractions.
From kayaking to horse riding
On the way back to Saint-Brice-en-Coglès, nature tempts you once again for a short stop. Will you be taking the opportunity to kayak down the Couesnon valley towards Saint-Michel? Or go acrobranching, climbing or horse-riding? The possibilities are endless. Feast your eyes on the magnificent gardens or visit the leisure parks, enjoyable for all ages.
