La Ferme Fortifié was the original fortified manor farmhouse built in the late 1600's at Poulmarvezen. It has a stone spiral staircase in a tower with a "meutrier", (a gun slit), there is a massive stone Breton fireplace, (complete with wood burning stove for cosy winter lets) and many other interesting exposed stonework details. The property has been restored to a very high standard with three en-suite bedrooms (two doubles and one twin) on the first floor, accessed via the stone spiral staircase, and on the ground floor an enormous (37 feet long) open plan living/dining/kitchen area.

Poulmarvezen was formerly a farmstead whose history can be traced back for centuries. The original choice of the site for a farm was on account of the natural spring that occurs here, (even to this day), and the unique Breton name Poulmarvezen reflects this (Poul, pool). The oldest of the buildings that remain was built in the late 1600's, a fortified farm with its own stone spiral staircase in a stone tower, complete with gun slit! The old prison has long since disappeared, along with the right to imprison local miscreants. The first addition to the longere (longhouse) was built in 1729, and the standard of the finely dressed stonework reveals that the farm must have prospered in the interim. Later additions were made in the early 1800's.

The Brittany region

The villages of Ploerdut and Lignol are each three kilometres distant and offer restaurants, bars and boulangeries. The bar Chez Marie Thé in Ploerdut (arguably the best in the area) serves an excellent four-course lunch with wine for a remarkable 11 Euros. Guemène-sur-Scorff is ten minutes away by car and offers supermarkets, banks, a wider range of shops, and even more restaurants. The roads in this part of Brittany are very quiet even in the summer, and it is possible to drive several kilometres without seeing another vehicle.

Village: Poulmarvezen

Nearest large town: Guemène-sur-Scorff (5kms East)

Other large towns nearby: Pontivy (25kms East), Carhaix-Plougouet (40kms North West), Lorient (40kms S)

Département: Morbihan (56)

Region: Brittany

Setting: Rural


The area is ideal for walking, cycling, fishing, painting and drawing and photography, not to mention eating, and there is a multitude of interesting places to visit within half an hour's drive, including the mysterious Chapelle St. Barbe (ring the massive bell), St. Fiacre, Le Faouet market hall, Les Rochers Du Diable (white water kayaking), the pretty Vallee-du-Scorff (picnic here), the Lac de Guerladan (boating from a tree-shaded beach), and many local street markets, notably Hennebont, Rostrenen, and further afield Vannes on a Wednesday, all ideal for gourmets and photographers. The Nantes-Brest canal, built by Napoleon (not personally) cuts through the area and offers picturesque level walking. It was built so that old Bonaparte could get his ships from North to South Brittany and back without the English sinking them.

"Lovely, quiet, well equipped atmospheric gite complex - log fires during the November evenings were a joy!"

We stayed for a week in November 2013. The Gites are very quiet and spacious and the surrounding environment is great with woodland, walks, lovely green spaces. We were very well looked after by the… More

"Fabulous peaceful location"

The gite is well situated to explore the many delights of Brittany. We returned each day after a day out exploring to a lovely peaceful setting. The gite has been nicely renovated and boasts 3 nice sized bedrooms, all en suite with a huge fireplace downstairs in the lounge. Ron and Sue are helpful without intruding on your holiday. We had a great week at Poulmarvezen and would definately return.
