By foot, bike, on horse, follow the paths running alongside the Oust Canal, a canal open to inland river tourism and a little corner of paradise for anglers . It is possible to hire canoes and motor boats, if you fancy a day out on the water.

Strolling along the streets of Josselin, you’ll discover many tourist attractions in this historic town including the fantastic 12th Century turreted Chateau overlooking the Oust River, the converted stables into a Doll’s Museum, many 16th century half-timbered building and the gargoyled Basilica Notre Dame du Roncier with its beautiful 15th and 16th century stained glass windows. The Basilica also contains the tomb of Olivier de Clisson and Marguerite de Rohan . Between April and October, one can climb at the top of the bell tower to enjoy a fabulous view of the town .
Next to the gites, walk around the Sainte-Croix Chapel (1060) where you will see 14th, 15th and 15th century houses, beautifully restored.
There's so much to see and do in the town, it's easy to see why Josselin has been awarded the status “Petite Cité de Caractère”. Guided tours of the town are available from the Tourist Information Office which is situated in one of the half-timbered houses just outside the Chateau entrance.
