Ploermel's growing community

The town of Ploermel is located in north-west France, in the department of Morbihan in Brittany. It is a growing and developing community with a thriving economy and a lively atmosphere. The town is modern rather than romantically mediaeval, but it is clean and attractive and offers a great lifestyle with all amenities and easy access to most parts of Brittany. Ploermel is set on the edge of the magical Forêt de Paimpont, which legend proclaims is the home of Merlin the Magician, amongst other fantastical characters.

Le Lac au Duc

Lovers of the great outdoors and sports fans will find lots to please in and around Ploermel. There is a fabulous lake, Le Lac au Duc, which was man made back in mediaeval times. The lake is said to have flooded the old village which can still be found beneath its cool, deep waters! Le Lac au Duc offers many activities, with boating tuition, swimming, pedaloes and lovely safe beaches for family picnics. There is also a nine-hole golf course running alongside the lake.

Forêt de Paimpont

There are lots of land sports available too, with the town being set close to the lovely Forêt de Paimpont which has beautiful trails for walking, cycling and horse-riding.

How to get there

You can fly to the airports of Rennes (flybe, Aer Lingus), Lorient (Aer Arann), Brest (flybe, Ryanair) or to Dinard (Ryanair, Aurigny). If you take the ferry, the port of St Malo is the nearest although all the northern ports are within a reasonable driving distance. The N24 is the road to take if you are driving, and you will find the town easily from there.
