|Year property purchased||2011|
|Why this location?||I chose this location because the transport links are great and the area is so tranquil and quiet.|
|Unique benefits of property||The house is situated in the centre of a little village with a good mixture of French and English, there is everything you need on your doorstep but at the same time the rest of the world fades in to insignificance.|
Kingoland, is a small theme park for the kids less than 45 minutes away. There are also 4 soft play parks to keep the children entertained if you have them. However, if you are lucky enough to travel without them there are countless things to do.
Mountain biking trails galore and I mean galore, walking trails everywhere, kayaking or boating or just sunbathing at Lake Guerledan, the biggest lake in Brittany just 30 mins away.
Or if you prefer to peruse old churches, chateaux (in particular Domaine de Kerguehennec), historic sites such as the Stones at Carnac, or shopping in the historic town of Pontivy which has absolutely everything you could want. Or maybe just walking on the Nantes–Brest Canal, ideal for nature watching and taking in local sites.
The old town of Vannes is an hour away and a must see just for its history, not to mention the huge range of boutiques and privately owned fish restaurants and not forgetting the locally brewed beers etc.
The town of Lorient, famous for its naval history has much to offer, boat rides to little islands, most notable the Island of Groix. The festivals in August all over Brittany are amazing and every village takes part al summer in their own way, a rare treat.
Or what about horse riding, fishing, or even golf, the local area has everything to offer. The village of Ploerdut has a weekly market and my friend and neighbour bakes fresh bread outside in a stone oven each Friday. There are 2 bars, a pizzeria which open 6 nights a week where you can sit in, sit out or even take away. A chemist, a hairdressers, a Post Office, a bakery, and a small local shop and even a doctors surgery and dentist should the need arise!.
The small village of Guemene is 8km away and has many attractions and even a local bus that can take you to the bigger towns if you don’t like driving.
On a more obscure note the locally famed festival of Andouille!! A must if you like to try new delicacies!!
