Nope! Looks like it will be peaceful and relaxing .... sorry! My first rule in France, Holland or Belgium is pick your spot then try to convince the family that it really is the right place to go. Works now because we bought a house in Normandy Have a great time. David

I was fishing at Brennilis in brittany last year, when I found lots and lots of bullets and spent ammo, webbing, a boot, shell cases and abandoned hardware, most of a pistol and the hilt of a dagger.
Lots of interesting things near the gite I stayed in at a place called Coat Salou. Up deep in the woods behind the house is a ruined church where the locals assassinated the priest as a callaborator during the 2nd World War. The area is famous as a centre of resistance with a dedication at a village nearby to its bravery in resisting the Germans. Anyway as I was catching some large trout and I kept feeling things under my wellies as the edge is very shallow and I needed to wade out to sink the net. I Scoured with the landing net and brought up all manner of treasures, enough to equip an army. A local told me there had been a running fight in that area after a trainline was destroyed. No one will talk about the murder of the priest as the family who did it live locally and have never been charged. S that bit of histpry remains a secret. I looked up Coat Salou and there is some sort of Breton ballad with the same name.
