The immediate area is a treasure trove of historic towns and medieval castles. Pluvigner is ideally situated in southern Brittany - there are sandy and safe beaches 15 minutes away, and yet it is also in the middle of Brittany's rolling countryside. Visit the standing stones at Carnac, the sophisticated buzz of La-Trinite-sur-Mer, the old towns of Auray or Vannes, the fortified citidal at Port-Louis, cycle the beautiful River Blavet valley, explore the old town and castle at Josselin.....or just sit and enjoy the garden!

Style & Setting...

KerDavid is a character farmhouse typical of the area, is about 60 years old and was completely renovated from top to bottom in the Spring of 2008! A new full-sized heated pool was installed in May 2008 in the large garden. There is a garage and shed on the property which hold 2 mountain bikes to explore the countryside or ride 2 km to the local village Brandivy, for the morning baguette and chocolate croissant.

KerDavid offers wonderfully central access - a 15 minute drive- to sandy and safe beaches, golfing, canal-side cycling, ancient standing stones, medieval towns, art towns, weekly markets and music festivals and parades.

Pool & Grounds...

KerDavid has a spacious garden, a full-size heated swimming pool and lots of room to play! Pool safety meets the French regulations with a safety roll-up cover. It is filtered with the latest combined Chlorine and ozone filtering system to minimize the use of chemical filtering.The original stone well in the garden has been retained and is sealed off for safety.

The KerDavid sleeps a maximum of 10 people. All the bedrooms have been furnished in a French Provincal style with antique furniture - the loft bedrooms have huge skylights with their own blackout shutters. The garden level of the house has 3 bedrooms - 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds in each (which match each other and could be joined to make double beds) and another double-bed room with its own French doors out onto the garden. There are new 2 bathrooms with towel warmers and a single toilet on this level.

The loft has another romantic double room as well as a loft kids room with 2 single beds - there is a full shower bathroom and toilet on this level. The chestnut floors glow, the stone walls and beamed ceilings have been carefully restored and all the rooms have electrical radiant heaters.
