Irish, African and French schools have been staying here for example, as well as Buddhists coming from the nearby temple of Plouray during pilgrimages. Because of the peacefulness of the area the centre would also be the ideal place for residential courses such as photography, painting, crafts, yoga etc...

Fans of cycling and walking will be spoilt for choice here as the area is considered by many to be the best area for cycling in France, and this is in no small part due to the variations of landscape that Brittany has to offer.
