Silfiac is a commune of the Morbihan, bordering Côtes-d'Armor, in Brittany, 60 km north of Lorient and about twenty kilometers southwest of Guerlédan.
With close to 470 inhabitants, Silfiac is based on an evergreen agriculture (about twenty farms), some local shops, but also made sustainable development and tourism priority axes.
The sewage of the village is treated by lagoon maintained by Ouessant sheep, a eco-tourist accommodation base, a natural camping area or a vast network of hiking and mountain biking circuits testify to this voluntarist policy.
Labelée station verte, the commune whose natural environment is full of hedges, peat bogs, ponds, certainly deserves the detour.
In terms of built heritage, a visit to the Saint-Laurent chapel is essential. The whole building dates from the 17th century, except for the transept and choir, which date back to the 15th century. As for the bell-tower, there was engraved the date of 1655.
The southern façade is classed with a remarkable door with multiple fragments and an oculus. The exteriors of the chapel were restored in 2007, as well as the framework (where part of the original wood was preserved). The ensemble evokes the Gothic style. To note again, a fountain at the entrance of the north crossroads formerly known to treat the aches of feet! For more information or a detailed visit, contact the Friends of the Chapel Association on +33 2 97 27 60 22.
However, it is its natural environment that gives rise to many potentialities in Silfiac.
An equestrian trail, hiking trails and trails for mountain bikes, all of which include remarkable natural sites, have been marked out and explanatory panels have been laid out. Information and explanatory sheets on +33 2 97 27 60 13 and +33 2 97 25 04 10.
In addition, an ATV station linked to the Guerlédan base has been set up. Information on +33 2 96 67 12 22.
During these strolls, a halt is imposed at La Quenouille du Diable (locality Kerillis), a neolithic megalith that owes its name to its particular form. It allows to attest a human presence in Prehistory but it is not known whether it was a frontier, a burial place or a place of worship.
Other sports and leisure activities can be practiced. Cricket (initiated by the British community installed in the village, contact +33 2 97 27 60 13) or equestrian sports for randos (join the +33 6 76 84 02 70) and fisheries (information on developed sites and regulations on +33 2 97 44 54 55).
