Gite | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
The barn gite faces south-east and the french windows open onto a verandah with BBQ and a picnic table, where you can have breakfast in the sun, looking across the wheatfields. The kitchen is modern, bright and well-equipped and all the bedrooms with their private bathrooms are spacious and airy, decorated with a provencal flavour.
Though newly renovated, the gite has retained many original features and all the windows open onto views of open countryside and the pool. There is a cot in the gite with baby equipment and there is plenty of room for a further cot to be added. Keryvon is a perfect base for any family wanting to explore central brittany and the nearby walk-way which stretches to Carhaix provides a safe and pleasant route for taking a push-chair to the village of St Guen - just 1km away.
The small lake in the village is available for fishing; there are picnic tables around the water and a play area ( swings and slides) for children. The busy restaurant, Chez Isabelle, in the centre, welcomes children and the meals are amazing value.

The Brittany region
Central Brittany is unique; the Bretons have an independent spirit with a strong celtic influence; they are warm and hospitable and enjoy music and dancing; nearly all the villages and communes in the forest of Quenecan present their own" fest-noz" during the summer where you can see traditional dancing at its best. The climate is mild during winter and often reaches 30 degrees during the summer, but generally without humidity. Breezes from the Atlantic are refreshing. Each August the abbey of Bon Repos stages a son et lumiere which apart from being a spectacular event, gives the visitor the history of Brittany, from Roman times through to the French Revolution and the revolt of the Bonnets Rouges. It is unmissable !
The abbey which was originally the home of the Cistercian monks, is in a beautiful setting on the Nantes-Brest canal, where you can cycle or picnic and walk along the towpath under beech trees and oaks. Each Sunday there is a market of local produce, flowers, cheeses , cider and crafts - you can have lunch at the abbey's restaurant or a beer at the cafe on the canal-side.Or take a vedette from the lac de Guerledan and have dinner on board whilst you learn about Napoleon's man-made lake. Go further into the forest and visit the Forge - another beautiful setting housing a complete village which produced iron during the 18th century - tours are available daily in the summer. Both the north and south coasts are within an easy drive from gites de Keryvon - you can find sandy beaches at Binic, Les Rosaires, Val Andre and Perros Guirec and from there you can hop on a vedette which speeds you to the tiny greek-like island of Ile de Brehat.... well worth a visit.
There are many pretty villages in the area - all filled with flowers, such as Quintin and Moncontour or delightful ports such as St Goustan near Vannes, where you can stroll along the rugged coastline or people-watch in the many bars and cafes. Armor means "where the land meets the sea" which is a perfect description for this varied and lovely area.
Mur has a friday market and a particularly lively friday evening market during July and August, which includes a live band and dancing in the square. Several bars and restaurants are grouped around this square, so you can take an aperitif whilst enjoying the music. One particular bar, Le Thematique has an english library and is an internet cafe.
An annual classic car show is held just outside Mur on the banks of the lac de Guerledan during August and the local fest-noz takes place at the beginning of August. There is a pony and horse riding centre in Mur. Bikes are easily hired and can be arranged to be delivered to your gite. Mur has 2 bakeries, 2 churches, doctor, dentist, supermarket etc.

"An ideal hideaway for a family celebration"
The Longere was located in a beautiful corner of rural Brittany. It was spacious and very well equipped with fittings and furniture which we would have been proud to own. The owners were welcoming, i… More
