20% DISCOUNT BRITTANY FERRIES - FLEXIBLE ARRIVAL DATES AND LENGTH OF STAY. We have five beautifully restored stone cottages, formerly a farmstead, set at the end of a quiet lane in idyllic countryside, 4 acres of gardens and woodland. Heated swimming pool. UKsatTV WIFI****

On the ground floor there is a very large open plan lounge with dining area and fully fitted kitchen, tiled throughout with rose-coloured terracotta tiles, which contrast nicely with the clean white walls and 300 year-old beams, and the prie-dieu used by pilgrims for washing and praying. The lounge area has comfortable sofas and pieces of traditional French furniture, and the smart kitchen area is complete with single-drainer sink unit, fridge-freezer, gas cooker, and microwave oven On the first floor there is a spacious double bedroom with en-suite shower room, a twin room, and on a slightly higher level a second double bedroom and second shower room. Very high white-boarded ceilings and all roof timbers on show, full of character.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 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.

Ploerdut

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.
