Between Land and Sea
· Le Hénan, the tide mill and Kerdruc.
- The 15th century site of Le Hénan is located on the banks of the Aven on the GR 34. Another opportunity for a walk. After passing by the three fountains and its old retting basins for hemp and linen, and having crossed the road, you will enter the arboretum.
- The Moulin à Marée or tide mill (1426) is located on a seawall with the Aven on one side and a mudflat on the other. It used to work with the tides. A valve allowed the seawater to enter into the mudflat at high tide. The valve closed with the change of current. Two chutes turned the two wheels at dawn until the next high tide. The mill was still working until around 1935.
- Kerdruc is a little port on the right bank of the Aven. The boats which shelter there come in every marine colour, so it’s well worth taking the trip with your camera or to try the seafood. You can buy oysters and other shellfish there.
The ideal place for canoeing and kayaking.
· Kerascoët and Kercanic, authentic villages of thatched cottages
What a beautiful piece of unchanged heritage. Granite houses with thatched roofs will delight you as you stroll around. They represent the traditional architecture of yesteryear. This is a place that you cannot afford to miss. Did you know that the houses and walls in upright stones are an architectural feature of Trégunc and Névez? It’s a construction method which dates back to the 17th and 18th centuries and is unique in France. The walls were erected by placing granite orthostates, of around 2.70 metres in height, side by side.
