Le Touldren is on the edge of the pretty village of Saint Aignan
     
       
                                                     Views of the village in summer   

Leave your car and stroll up the path (above) to the local village shop, bar/creperie where fresh bread is available daily, and a bar restaurant. We even have an electricity museum with historical information about the barrage, the village and Lac de Guerl├ędan! A small tourist information is also open during the summer months. St Aignan is situated at the lower end of 'Lac de Guerl├ędan' and the barrage/dam wall can be viewed on a lovely walk from Le Touldren. 
Around the lake shores you will find places to swim, picnic, walk and relax. Beau-rivage, by the lake at Caurel offers a range of water sports, fishing and two restaurants whilst the closer Anse de Sordan has a great beach area, pedalos, canoes and a boat for hire. Here the Merlin restaurant has a terrace with views of the lake, perfect for a pre-dinner drink.
The 'Abbey de Bon Repos' is situated at the top end of the lake along the canal and is a beautiful place set overlooking the forest. A cafe allows you to soak in the atmosphere and from March to October there is a Sunday morning market. Close by is the 'Forges des Salles', an old metal working village, owned by a local count and his family and open to the public.
Cycling in this area is very popular with many easy rides beside the Nantes/Brest canal or more demanding routes through the forest, bicycles can be hired in Mur de Bretagne or Caurel and we have a couple at the gite available for use. 
Ailish horse rides at the local stables within walking distance of us, and we are happy to organise pony treks for you.
