Rob and I decided to move to France to have a quieter life and also so we could spend more time with our son, who was 1 at the time. We visited the Farm on a rainy day in January and fell in love with the buildings and the countryside straight away. If it looked this good in the winter imagine during the summer! We left the next day have bought the farm and have never looked back since. We now have 3 boys, some animals (!) and have settled well in to a lovely community.
|Year property purchased||2003|
|Why this location?||We are located in the middle of beautiful countryside yet can cycle to the local town that has all the amenities we could ever need. It has easy access to the motorway and there are many historic places to visit within a short drive, 10 - 30 mins. We are just a 15 minute drive to many different beaches that are unspoilt and great for children, we love nothing better than picking our children up after school and heading off to the beach for a picnic. Throughout the year you can go out walking on the many coastal paths, that are equally stunning on a stormy winters day as on a sunny summers one.|
|Unique benefits of property||What's unique about our property,well I guess we are a little biased as we live here and love the area and the Breton people.... but we think that we have the perfect place as there is always something to do here, come rain or shine. We have lived here for 12 years now and never have a problem of finding something to do or somewhere to visit. There are not many places that have historic towns, amazing natural beaches, rivers, some of the best seafood in France landed locally every day, play parks and all on your doorstep. In addition our Cottages are set in the middle of our land, so you have a 100 acres of forest, meadow, river and fields to explore, while at the same time feeling secure that your children can explore as we did when we were their age. <br/><br/>But don't take our word for it read the reviews on our website.<br/>|
Brittany is famous for it's unspoilt beaches and many are within an easy 15 minute drive from Keranmeriet. We have lived here for 12 years now and are still discovering beaches we haven't visited before!
Concarneau is a bustling fishing port (and Frances largest!) and is the best place to buy fresh seafood. There is an old walled town that hides narrow streets and historic houses. Only 15 minutes drive it makes a great place to try out local creperies that Brittany is famous for.
Pony trekking nearby. Free use of mountain bikes Canoes for hire.
Rosporden 2 minutes Pont-Aven 10 minutes Concarneau 15 minutes.
Pont-Aven, only 10 minutes away, is a beautiful town nestling along the banks of the Aven River with its ancient watermills. It was made famous by many artists, one of them being Paul Gaugin and you can now browse the many art galleries and shops.
Quimper lies on the River Odet and is the oldest city in France, well worth a visit, yet only 20 minutes drive away. The beautiful 13th-15th century cathedral has recently been renovated and has beautiful fretwork and stained glass windows. There are a myriad of shops and restaurants to explore, not to mention the many narrow streets.
Throughout the summer months there is a festival on pretty much every weekend and the bigger ones are on for a week to 10 days. There is always lots of dancing, good food (reasonably priced) and a well stocked bar with local cider! Some have fireworks, other have processions and others have dance and music displays and competitions. See our website for more details.
We have 100 acres of beautiful countryside on your doorstep for you to explore, one of the paths recently rediscovered dates from the war when the inhabitants of Concarneau were forbidden to take local wood, so had to travel by horse and cart to the countryside to make charcoal for their fires.
You can picnic by the small lake on the tables provided and spot some of the wildlife, Deer, Coypu, Wild Boar, hares, Kingfishers and Birds of Prey to name a few.
