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.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!)The property has fantastic views, and own exclusive area of garden complete with barbecue, table and chairs, and sun-loungers.

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!
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!

This site was very good for our family with great open spaces and views of the country. Pool was great. Accommodation was basic with just one bathroom - however we knew this prior to booking. Bedrooms downstairs was a bonus as it meant cool area for sleeping! Everything we needed was here. Ron was very helpful with any queries we had. The site was very tidy and well taken care of. Would highly recommend.

"Lovely rural setting"
Le Grenier is a well equipped holiday home set in beautiful French countryside. There is plenty of room for a family of four with the the bonus of a well maintained swimming pool. Due to the location, a car is essential for access to any local attractions. Definitely good value for money.
