Ploerdut - a Breton heritage village

Brittany is a unique region of France. Its history, heritage and culture are distinctive and fascinating. And if you want to discover all of this within an unassuming, rural setting, you could do far worse than pay a visit to little Ploerdut. This pretty little village doesn't shout about its heritage, yet it offers so many intriguing glimpses of the past. It's also a thriving community, with local amenities and a typically vibrant Breton attitude to life.

Amenities available in the village

Ploerdut is a small, rural village, but it's got a few handy local amenities. There's a small general store, a creperie (an absolute must when in Brittany!) a couple of bars and a restaurant. For larger shops, supermarkets and a greater choice of restaurants you only have to pop half an hour down the road to nearby Pontivy.

Heritage of Ploerdut

Heritage is where Ploerdut really excels. There are a number of lovely little chapels to be seen, although a few more have now sadly vanished. Several chateaux and manor houses can also be found around the village. Add to this a stone cross from the 18th century and some restored cider caves and you have a full programme of history to explore!

A plethora of outdoor activities on offer

The huge leisure lake of Guerledan is fabulous for family days out. The Morbihan coast is lovely, and given the micro climate enjoyed by Morbihan, promises long, sunny days of beach and seaside fun. And at less than an hour away, it's easy to get to. If you're a golfer you can choose from several nearby courses. Many other activities are also found in the area, including horse-riding, cycling, water sports and many more. Mountain biking is also very popular in the area, and bike hire is available locally.

Out and about from Ploerdut

Mediaeval market towns like Pontivy and Josselin are nearby, and are delightful to visit as well as being handy for shopping trips. If you're happy to travel a little further, it's also worth a longer trip to see glorious Dinan. Morbihan's fascinating and mysterious heritage - standing stones, tumuli, myths and legends galore - is all there to be discovered too, out in the countryside. And this being Brittany, there's no end of fetes and festivals going on all over the region, especially in the summer months. Getting along to these gives a real idea of the unique culture of Brittany, and provides loads of fun!
