kid friendly places in Brittany

We're going to Brittany on Friday - on the coast very near Quillan - and I wondered if anyone's discovered any really lovely beaches or great places to take the kids to around here? Any experiences of this region would be most appreciated.

Also we're thinking of taking kids (twin boys aged 7, daughter aged four) to Parc Asterix for the day - anyone been here? How did you rate it?

Many thanks f xx

It's about an hour south of roskoff. Any brittany related stuff would be helpful as we're there 2 weeks and are happy to drive about a bit. Thanks!

Oceanopolis in Brest is good for a day out with the kids if the weather's not up to much, see oceanopolis.com (sorry crap at doing links). Haven't been to Parc Asterix TBH although passed it many times!! I've had mixed reviews from friends about the Parc, some say it's great, others say no good unless you're into Asterix (the character). Also, a lonnnggggg drive to Paris from Brittany

Maybe we'll go to paris on the TGV for do city things for the day rather than go to parc asterix (my boys do love them tho - the asterix books I mean) - don't mind short or medium-ish drives but don't fancy being trapped in the car after driving to brittany from scotland!

Also, Morlaix is a nice little typically-french town, lovely shops and little market midweek with good toy stall see their website www.morlaix.fr
