The local Area
Carpquarry is situated about 2 miles from the market town of Callac in Dept 22 in Brittany in a small beautiful village of Saint Servais. The village of St Servais is very quiet and picturesque dominated by the church in the village square with a small river running through the village past a couple of small lakes where there are lovely walks. The village has a bar that sells a few groceries or is nice just to get a coffee in or a cold beer and it is only a few hundred yards walk from the lake.
Callac the main town is about 5 mins drive , It has a couple of supermarkets, butchers, newsagents, bakers, cake shop and many bars and restaurants. There is also a market on a Wednesday, or if you prefer you could just have a walk around its large lake.
