Lockhouse "Le Moustoir" - Brittany
At the beginning of the 19th century began the building of the channel from Nantes to Brest, which extends over an overall length of approximately 360 kilometers across Brittany. Along this distance, on which an altitude of altogether 550 meters had to be adjusted, 237 locks and the corresponding lockhouses of the former lock-keepers, the “maisons éclusières”, are located. Unfortunately, the lock-keepers all died out in the meantime and most of the locks have to be operated by the driver of a houseboat or a canoe.
However, the lockhouse No. 216 “Le Moustoir” situated near to Châteauneuf du Faou in the heart of the Departement Finistère can be rented today as holiday house. The “Le Moustoir” is a comfortably furnished accomodation equipped for upto 15 persons. The accomodation is rentable the complete year (central heating).
