Ploermel 56800 - Morbihan, Southern Brittany, France - Discovery the Ploermel area of Morbihan

Ploermel is a growing town virtually on the crossroads between Rennes [Capital of Brittany] and Vannes [Coastal walled city]. It is part of the Morbihan area and enjoys the climate from the Gulf Stream and is only one hour away from the many beaches of the Gulf of Morbihan. Ploermel is also known as The City of Dukes due to its many surrounding chateaux [including the nearby Josselin chateau] and its lake, man-made by the medieval dukes by flooding a village and valley. The Lac au Duc has a man-made beach and safe swimming area, watersports hire and lessons, trampolining, volleyball and table tennis areas as well as a kid’s swimming pool with tubular slides. Around the lake area are cafes and ice-cream bars too.

Ploermel itself was once a walled city until 'friendly fire' in the 2nd World War destroyed much of its walls. It is now half medieval and half modern. It has a market on Fridays and many niche shops, including clothing and shoes, plus the usual banks. There are many restaurants and bars, all children friendly and all recommended. The town is spoilt for choice for supermarkets too as there are 3 large relatively new stores, SuperU, Intermarche and Leclerc as well as the smaller Lidl, Netto and Mutant stores are all around the edges of the town itself. A new Cinema Complex and 10-pin bowling alley [with excellent restaurant] adds to the delights of the town. Not to forget McDonalds!!

Easy access by good fast quiet roads to the coastal areas including Carnac, La Baule and the busy thriving capital of Rennes make this a superb central location whatever the weather.

In the summer months Ploermel hosts live bands - free - in its streets and squares, usually on a Thursday in August but part of the Festival of Music throughout the area in early July through to late August too. There is always something going on nearby! For a really friendly area come to the Ploermel for your next holiday in Brittany.

The gite is very well equipped and very comfortable. We stayed in Rose Cottage but Lavender Cottage looks equally as good. We liked the fact that the gites are only a 10 minute walk to the canal and cycling along the canal was a joy. The countryside is very scenic for walking or cycling with small and friendly bars/restaurants along the way. The local towns have all the shops you need for your stay. We can truly recommend staying at these gites and the whole area is delightful. We hope to return and will stay longer next time.

It was immaculate, light and airy, very comfortable, with plenty of space and storage, and had everything we needed. The terrace is the perfect spot to while away the time with a book and a glass of wine, and dinner outdoors in the evening with a view over Fran and Rick's much cared for garden was a delight. We were very impressed with this beautiful area and the house is well placed to visit the coast and many interesting villages. We soon found our favourites - La Gacilly being one - and there are many excellent restaurants in the local villages. We also enjoyed some peaceful evening walks from the house. Fran and Rick are such welcoming hosts without being intrusive. They have plenty of helpful tips and are happy to answer any questions you may have. We loved staying at Le Petit Perche and are sure that those who follow us will too. We are looking forward to returning - for longer next time!
