Gites de Keryvon is situated in a quiet and peaceful location at the end of a private drive, far from traffic , thus perfectly safe for children, yet only 1km. from a pretty village, St Guen, with a fishing lake and childrens' play area, which you can walk to on the footpath, and 5 minutes from the larger town of Mur de Bretagne , 10 minutes from Loudeac and 20 minutes from the historic town of Pontivy. During the summer all these locations are bustling with markets, music festivals , sporting events, carnivals and horse shows.

Our private pool is solar heated and catches the sun the whole of the day with lovely views on all sides. Each gite has its own picnic table area with parasols and BBQs which is perfect for dining al fresco. Just a few metres down our drive is the chemin de randonee and velo-route that crosses central brittany to St Meen/Carhaix - no need to travel far for a walk or bike-ride in the country. We are just 7kms. away from the spectacular Lac de Guerledan - surrounded by fir trees and wooded valleys, it is known as "Little Canada" and apart from sandy beaches, picnic areas and forest walks, you can try rock-climbing, water-ski-ing or take a kayak out on the lake.

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.

"A beautiful part of rural Brittany in very comfortable and pleasant accommodation."

Peta & Paul Matthews are very welcoming hosts. The facilities are very good with an excellent swimming pool. The village of St.Guer is small but remote.Mur de Bretagne is where to eat and shop . The local people were most hospitable. The nearby Lake is beautiful and has all the usual facilities around its shore. The locality is NOT full of tourists as it is inland. The nearest coast is the St.Brieuc Bay and we found Binic a very pleasant town on the west side of the bay. Excellent seafood and plenty of small cafes. The pink granite coast is also very attractive and St. Malo is well worth a visit.
