The neighbouring village of 'La Poterie' (The Pottery) is part of the 'Grand Lamballe' area and its name is no accident: up until the middle of the 20th century pottery was a thriving business here. Potters mined the clay moorlands for the materials they needed to practise their craft, and left behind hundreds of holes in the moors. Fauna (ponds rich in frog life and dragonflies) and very distinctive flora thrived in this particular environment, so much so that the site was listed. The 'Lande des Potiers' (Potters' Moor) is protected by a biotope order and is located 4km from the historic centre of Lamballe, an unmissable stopover for nature-lovers.
