The Isole valley

Logo Bretagne

From the centre of Brittany to the quays of Quimperlé, the Isole flows quietly through South Finistère, except for a few rapids that disturb the calm of its waters. Between nature and heritage, the Isole valley will surprise you!

#1 The Isole

A 1st category river, the Isole is home to many species that benefit from the good quality of its waters: salmon, trout, otters, etc. With its clear waters, wooded paths and small heritage, the Isole is a must-see destination. Its waters have been used for centuries, as evidenced by the number of mills along its course, such as the Moulin Blanc in Mellac. The river rises in the Montagnes Noires in Morbihan. Its course meanders through a number of gorges in the Cascadec forest at Scaër.

La rivière de l'Isole se situe près du Moulin Blanc dans le Finistère Sud.

#2 The green lane


With its stabilised surface, gentle gradient and many sights along the way, the voie verte no. 7 is a great place to take a walk that's suitable for everyone. Whether you're a walker, a cyclist, a hiker, a horse rider or just a stroller, the voie verte is for you. It crosses the northern part of the Pays de Quimperlé, the market town of Scaër and the Coatloc'h national forest.

#3 The forest of Coatloc'h

This state-owned forest covers more than 350 hectares in the commune of Scaër, at the foot of the Montagnes Noires. A former stronghold of clog-makers and stone-cutting quarrymen, the Coatloc'h forest is home to many species of tree. A trace of this activity remains today with the reconstruction of a clog-makers' hut in the heart of the forest, close to the forest house dating from 1838. The presence of numerous beech trees and granite quarries favoured the establishment of these two activities.

Today, the forest of Coatloc'h is home to orienteering courses of varying levels, which can be the occasion for a Sunday stroll with the family or for much more sporting time trials. You can find the courses in our reception offices or on the Orienteering page of our website.

#5 The Kernault Manor

Listed as a Historic Monument and owned by the Conseil Départemental du Finistère, the Manoir de Kernault is one of the finest examples of a 15th-century Breton manor house, built in the heart of a vast agricultural estate. Its dwelling and outbuildings bear witness to the importance of their owners in the region. The 30-hectare park invites you to take a stroll and discover the hardy animals in the meadows: Ushant sheep, Scottish cows, etc.

Exhibitions, workshops, events and shows punctuate the life of this former farmhouse throughout the year.
