UKsatTV WIFIPoulmarvezen 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.

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 WIFIPoulmarvezen 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.Rose gardens and lawns now stand where once could be heard the sounds of working horses, cattle and people hard at work. What does remain is the cluster of time-mellowed stone buildings, still surrounded by completely unspoiled, beautiful, wooded, rolling countryside. In total we have four acres of lawns, gardens, and woodland, complete with a shady picnic area next to our own stream!Poulmarvezen is also thought to have had religious and/or monastic connections, as there are no records of taxes having been paid in the distant past! A stone cross was discovered during renovations, hidden under a stone-flag floor, possibly during the French Revolution.

Further details outdoors

Poulmarvezen is situated at the end of a very pretty lane, and as a consequence there is no passing traffic, and therefore safe for children. The absence of noise of any description is also very noticeable. At night the sky is free from light pollution, and you can touch the Milky Way. (not guaranteed!)All four properties have fantastic views, and each has its own exclusive area of garden complete with barbecue, table and chairs, and sun-loungers. If there is a baby in your family we can supply cot, high chair and baby bath free of charge.There is a 9m x 4.5m "proper" in-ground heated swimming pool (with safety fence and alarm system) which is always kept in immaculate condition for your use.We have four acres of woodlands lawns and gardens, and children can have some old-fashioned fun building wigwams etc down in the woodlands. There is a shady picnic table next to a little stream, very pleasant on hot days!Secure parking.

Location description from owner

The Brittany region

Brittany is naturally an area rich in Celtic culture and traditions. Each summer there is a major Celtic festival at Lorient, nearby Guemene celebrates it local speciality the Andouille (a smelly sausage to you and me) every year with a day long street party with bands, displays, and an unforgettable under-the-stars Fest Noz, (Night party consisting of mainly Breton dancing and a little drinking thrown in, with remarkably never any alcohol-related trouble!).

These local Breton dances are very popular and held in villages and towns throughout the year. Typically, all age groups join in, from small children to seniors, and dance to the very distinct and popular music, that has a hypnotic Moorish quality to it. The locals are only too happy for visitors to join them. Bring your video camera!

Ploerdut

The villages of Ploerdut & Lignol (both 3 kms) have bars, restaurants, boulangeries etc., Guemene-sur-Scorff (10 mins) has all the facilities of a thriving small french town, banks, hairdressers, supermarket etc. The area abounds with "things to do", just ask us! Ideal cycling/walking country.

The “Pardon” (religious procession) at nearby Crenenan (along with others) is a colourful, day long not-to-be-missed experience unparalleled in modern life, with traditional Breton costume in abundance, and a photographers dream!

“fantastic”

Reviewed 10 Sep 2015

Fantastic family place to stay, children used the pool every day and made friends with neighbours. Area is very prity with plenty of local creperies, although we spent most evening relaxing outside with wine / BBQ. A great day out is the local lake which has a beach area, boat hire and stylish cafe/bar. Defiantly visit the local markets & pick up the locally made specialities ( ask Ron about local festivals etc) For a relaxing holiday with friends & family, this is an ideal choice .. lovely accommodation in a beautiful setting. We will defiantly return and recommend to all Martin P
