Morbihan and the location of the House



The house is in the small farming hamlet of Le Rez, which is within 1km of the village of Buleon. Buleon, although small, has a green grocers selling bread, three bars, a restaurant, a sports ground and a telephone. There is a butchers shop at 1.5 Km from the house.

The surrounding countryside gently undulates- a mix of fields and woodland. There are many local villages accessible through a network of very quiet minor roads- ideal for exploring with bicycles.

A 'Route Nationale' is 1 Km away and allows for easy access to the coast and other more distant places of interest. The nearby towns of Locmine and Josselin can be reached within ten minutes drive and they provide all the facilities you may need. Josselin is a beautiful and particularly historic town and it is well worth spending some time there. Guided tours of the impressive chateau are available from where you can look down over the canal, where boats can be hired.

Near to Locmine is the impressive Chateau de Kerguehennec , which has been transformed into a open-air park of modern sculptures. Dotted amongst the woodland you find the weird and wonderful, and sometimes bizarre figures. The grounds are open all the year round, ideal for a quiet walk.

Ploermel, is a medieval town which boasts much history like Josselin. It associates itself with legends of knights and King Arthur and on the northern perimeter of the town in front of a hotel of the same name is a large lake with a beach! Water sports take place here and boats can be hired.

A small distance further west of Ploermel is the Forest of Paimpont. This is the largest remaining area of natural forest left in Brittany . This is a great area for cycling.

If you require something a little different, the St. Marcel Museum near Maelstroit displays armoured vehicles, weaponry and trucks from World War II.

The southern coast of Brittany is just thirty to forty minutes away. The Golfe du Morbihan, Auray , and Vannes are just some of the coastal places which should not be missed.

The many beaches of the coastline are of soft white sand. There are quiet ones and those which are busy and fashionable such as Carnac. Inland from Carnac is perhaps the most impressive site of Megaliths in all Brittany. Owing to the need for conservation the stones can only be looked at from a distance but a greater appreciation can be gained by looking around the visitors centre.

These places mentioned are just a very few of the many which cover southern Brittany.
