About Philippa

Hello! We are Philippa and Allan and look forward to hearing from you!

Philippa purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Philippa chose Ploermel area

In September 2005 we became proud owners of La Ferme du Moulin when we fell in love with the charm of this area. Mohon village is so typical of many Breton villages with old houses and a huge church at the centre. Our neighbours are lovely and everyone is so friendly! We live adjacent to La Ferme & we love sitting out in the peace and quiet with a glass (or two!) We also love the Lac au Duc, just 15 minutes away, and Josselin, and Ploermel, and there's just too much to mention! This is a great holiday location for all the family!

What makes this farmhouse unique

We do our utmost to try to make your holiday experience one of 'home from home' so have added lots of personal touches to enhance your stay. We live next to La Ferme du Moulin, so are on hand if you need anything, but certainly will not intrude in to your holiday. Our friendly dog, Jez and cat Guinness may will want to say hello. We have a wealth of information in the property, and personal recommendations of where to eat and places to go. Philippa is a qualified language teacher and can provide French conversation lessons (or English lessons) - Prices on request. So immerse yourself in French culture, kick back and enjoy! There's so much to do in the area, you are sure to have a fantastic holiday!

Guestbook comments from the owner

'What a lovely place! The village was so peaceful ,great amenities,a little shop, a bakers, post office and a bar. The house was really well furnished, a lovely big garden and nice friendly neighbours. We were left a useful set of instructions for all the appliances and a good pack of tourist information, well done I would definitely go back there again. Many many thanks!!'



The garden was a great size especially having the trampoline which the kids had hours of fun on! The owners were extremely helpful prior to our stay. Excellent!
