About Alan Fortuin

Why Alan Fortuin chose Merléac

Ty KENA is part of a small farming hamlet of 8 properties 5 miles from Lac de Gureledan, a man made lake with a full array of water sports including beaches.

You can come to Ty KENA just to relax and unwind or alternatively use it as a spring board to visit the rest of Brittany.
