Along the water

In the heart of Brittany, the Pontivy region is an ideal place for nature lovers to unwind and discover a verdant land punctuated by the waters of rivers, canals and lakes.

The forests – peaceful havens

Sentier en forêt

The 400 hectares of Branguily wood, or the 4000 hectares of the forest of Quénécan, is home to your walks as well as those of the deer, dragonflies and breeding birds. The marked paths will guide you through thickets and forests, composed of oak, beech and softwood. From the rocky chaos of Quénécan, or the bird watching huts along the Branguily lakes, you will share beautiful moments of peace with the little forest people.

Natural rivers

From west to east, Pontivy community is punctuated by three rivers. The Saar River flows to the west. The quality of its waters and the protection it offers to the fauna and the flora justify its classification ‘Natura 2000’. The Blavet, more imposing, is a coastal river. It crosses Pontivy Community in the center and joins the ocean in Lorient. The Oust River is the border of the territory. It is a tributary of the Vilaine, which it joins in Redon. These rivers offer exceptional fishing and hiking opportunities.
