“we loved: walking along the Nantes Brest Canal; Tremargat and its potter; the organic baker and organic food coop in Mellionec; and lovely walks in the Foret de Quenecan followed by a visit to the Abbey of Bon Repos” – Carlos and Lucy” 

THE HEART OF BRITTANY

  • megalithic sites including menhirs and a hill fort within cycling distance
  • ancient greenways for walking and cycling
  • 2 km from the Nantes Brest canal
  • easy access to really beautiful beaches
  • vibrant community with art and music
  • wild swimming in the lake and river

Situated in Kreiz Briez, the heart of Brittany, the countryside is rich in celtic history. Massive mossy boulders and ancient megalithic sites all form part of the lanscape with its lakes, rivers and forests. Plumstone Cottage is just 1.5 km from the village of Mellionnec. This small village has an organic bakery which also serves as a shop run by local organic growers.  The market town of Rostrenen is only 7 km away where, as well as the weekly market, there are banks, cafes, restaurants, builders merchants, supermarkets and 2 organic shops.  Mellionnec is the french representative in the Cultural Village of Europe programme and the thriving community has events all year, including dances, an annual sculpture and a film festival.

All around the area are walkways and tracks to explore.  There is a great circular walk that passes close to Plumstone, as well as a green lane cycle route around the area (we have bikes you can borrow).  The local area is famous for ancient sites.  These range from megalithic menhirs dolmens and hill forts in the immediate area to the massive earthworks at Carnac on the south coast.  Our own land has some stunning boulders…

The coasts are stunning and easily accessable being around an hour to the south, west and north.  Even closer for swimming, is the massive Quenecan Forest and Guerledan Lake.  The Anse De Sourdan, on the south side has a small beach, playground  and the Merlin lakeside restaurant and cafe.  You might also find this site interesting:
