2015 TOUR DE FRANCE. For cycling enthusiasts the Tour de France is coming close to Kerdeven in 2015. On July 11 the route is from Rennes to Mur de Bretagne (we are 23 kms from Mur de Bretagne) and on 12th July is goes from Vannes to Plumelec.

2015 sees the emptying of the Lac de Guerledan just a short drive away. This is an exceptional event, not to be missed. The last time this was done is about 3 decades ago when the hydro electro dam last needed maintenance. At that time there was great interest in the landscape that was uncovered showing the whole of the community that was swallowed when the valley was flooded, together with 7 of the locks along the Nantes to Brest canal. This year you will be able to walk or cycle along the footpaths and tracks around the lake and also take advantage of guided tours (in a range of languages) that will take place every day during the summer season. These will take you down into the lake area and will cover the history of the lake and the people who lived there, together with some of the legends linked to it.

The Tourist Board tell us that many events and guided tours will be offered throughout the summer of 2015 and we will update this information as it becomes available. We understand a full programme of the events starting in May 2015 will be available from April 2015.

The nearby Lac de Guerleden is about the size of Windermere and has two good beaches and a wide range of water sports. It is also possible to book a boat trip around the lake whilst taking lunch. The ancient Abbaye de Bon Repos has undergone much restoration work, provides a good insight into local history and is home to an annual spectacular Son et Lumiere During the summer of 2015 the water is to be drained from the Lac so that maintenance work can be done on the hydro electric dam. The tourist board is making available guided tours of the site which, when it was flooded, covered a small community and 7 locks on the Nantes/Brest canal. During this time the Lac will not be available for swimming and other water sports.

The Brittany region

Central Brittany is a place of beautiful rolling countryside. It has often been likened to Cornwall, but without the high population. It is a place of peace and the opportunity to pursue a range of country sports and activities without tripping over tourists at every turn. Visit the local markets - truly authentic markets for all year round trade. In most weeks during the summer one local village or another has a 'fete' or 'pardon.'

These are usually full of local colour, attended by local people and often end the day with a good hearty meal and perhaps some dancing. Children are always welcome. We are always pleased to advise you how to take best advantage of these opportunities.

If cycling is your interest we should perhaps mention that many cycling teams practice in this area, the countryside could have been designed to test your skills, or provide gentle exercise along the canal tow path if is this is more your style. Fishing is a popular hobby with many Bretons, with large patches of garden being the 'norm' many have created there own fishing ponds! For others there is the canal tow path or local lakes. We will be pleased to advise about necessary licences.

For those interested in history, Kerdeven is close to the Routes Touristique des Menhirs. This is a giant circle of ancient standing stones dotted in a circle around Brittany. We are always pleased to discuss your particular interests before you start your holiday.


Plouguernevel is a small town with a chemist, bar and small shop. For more complete shopping Rostrenen is only around 5 miles and has a good choice of supermarkets, restaurants and shops.

It is market day on Tuesday in Rostrenen, where there is always an extensive range of stalls over a wide area of the town. It is well worth a visit. There is a cinema, a variety of restaurants (we will be pleased to advise and book your table if you wish), 4 supermarkets, 2 chemists and everything else you'd expect in a small town..

"delightful self catering with fabulous ammenities"

We had a lovely week at Kerdeven. We played football on the field, explored the woods, played ping pong under the giant oak tree and drank wine in the evening light. We mucked about in the pool and the kids explored different ways to use the slide. We didnt use the other play equipment as our kids thought they were a bit too old for it - but what a heaven for those with young children. Steve directed us to a wonderful local market where we bought delicacies including the best fruit bread Ive eaten in over 15 years! Steve and Valerie were very welcoming and even thought we didnt need the fire it was a real treat for the cooler evenings. Id like to say we didnt use the british tv, but we did! A really lovely holiday that was just made by such a lovely place with welcoming owners.

"Comfortable cottage, ensuites for each room and free wi fi"

We arrived at Kerdeven quite late as we had travelled from the Channel Tunnel, a six hour drive. The cottage was welcoming and once the woodburner was started up we very quickly got warm. The Swimming pool was the bigest attraction for the children who went in it every day rain or shine. There was a trampoline and a table tennis table. The grounds were vast and there was lots of places for the kids to let off steam, including feeding the hens and gease and sometimes being chased by the gease. The owner was very good and saw to everything we needed. Near by there is a lake with a beach and some boats to hire. It is quite easy to travel to the coast in about an hour. All in all it was a good holiday, I would recommend it to anyone with kids.
