About Philippa or Allan

We are Philippa and Allan, here to help you make the most of your holiday, so you can go home relaxed and having had a wonderful time. The picture above is of us dressed up in 'Medieval' garb on 14th July, for the fantastic Medieval festival held in Josselin every other year.

Philippa or Allan purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Philippa or Allan chose Ploermel area

We've been proud owners of La Ferme du Moulin since 2005, when we fell in love with this area and the property's charm and location. We used the house a lot as a holiday home, and each time we came here from the UK, we didn't want to leave, so we before moved out permanently in 2010. We live next door, and certainly won;t intrude on your holiday but are on hand if you need anything. We are animal lovers and have a friendly dog and a cuddly cat at home.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Being in a village location is a real advantage. It's peaceful and quiet but you can walk to the baker's in the morning for those lovely freshly baked croissants, or have a typical French meal in the local bar.

If you would like to learn French during your stay, Philippa is a qualified French teacher, so lessons for both adults and children can be arranged.

Brittany is steeped in history and culture and has its own Breton identity and even its own language most obviously seen on the signposts for the villages and towns. The people here are welcoming and open.

This area has strong links with Arthurian legend and even the local beer is named Lancelot!

There's so much to do and see here. Josselin is a stunning town with Medieval buildings, and impressive castle and is situated on the Nantes-Brest canal, where you can hire boats. It has a bustling Saturday Market, and bi-annually holds an incredible Medieval Festival in July.

The Lac au Duc is one of our favorite spots for unwinding. The lakeside bar/restaurant is great for sitting just enjoying the scenery with a glass or two. There's safe bathing here and a range of watersports, including waterskiing and pedalos. Across the lake is a beautiful 9 hole golf course where you can 'pay and play'.

Ploermel was the seat of the former' Ducs de Bretagne' Here there's a good range of shops and restaurants and an impressive Astronomical Clock. Further afield you can visit the Resistance Museum, the amazing 'Poete Ferrailleur', La Gacilly, a town full of artisans' workshops, or maybe have a trip to the Prehistoric Park or the Animal Park at Branferé

Towns also worth visiting are Vannes, Auray, Dinan and Pontivy.

Mohon is in central Brittany, so both the northern and southern coasts are within an hour's drive

There's lots to do and explore, from quaint villages to magnificent castles, impressive ancient standing stones and specialist shopping. There's so much to explore, you will never be bored!
