    Have a birthday at home with family

    by gwened Written Sep 12, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Birthdays here are like anywhere else, better close with the family and best on a Friday night with a gorgeous weather weekend ahead.

    It was my birthday,,,,, so the family decided first to get me my favorite hobby,wines, red, white and rosé, from my favorite store Nicolas, this time my boys were by Lorient so they got it there for me !!!

    then , it was the wife who cook my favorite sort of paella with Valencian style yellow rice, mussels, shrimps and fish all down with great Jurançon white wines we just purchase in our summer vacation there at Gan.

    and a great home made orange chocolate cake to end it with home made vanilla orange flavored coffee.

    And it is just the beginning of the weekend.

    Birthdays celebration are mentioned in the old Testament and again in the new Testament. The song here most use is "Bon anniversaire, nos vœux les plus sincères" and it came up from the music in the film " Un jour avec vous" (1951) of Jean-René Legrand, with André Claveau, Simone Logeart , and André Gabriello.

    Here the simplest way is just to wish a "joyeux anniversaire"

    Fondest memory: sitting in my home after much work and still some to come and enjoying the Bounty of my France.

    Chateau de Kerlois

    by gwened Written Apr 12, 2014

    Favorite thing: I put it here because this is a private property, only open briefly on heritage days in September, otherwise ,its not open to the public. HOwever, its Worth mentioning that in my area we have great castles with lots of history and beautiful properties.

    http://www.pluvigner.fr/module-Contenus-viewpub-tid-2-pid-165.html

    they are there above, of course its part of the heritage of my new town, and maybe you are here on heritage days or can be seen with reservation.

    A bit of history here too, of course. The castle dates mostly from the 17C (facade) but retains some elements of the 15C. At the beginning of this 15C, it then belonged to Eon of Kernigues, Squire of the Duke Jean V of Brittany. In 1607, the lordship of Kerlois was acquired by Olivier Le Gouvello, Lord of Keriolet. His son, Pierre de Keriolet, spent his childhood.

    The private chapel was built by the mother, in Thanksgiving for the conversion of her son in Loudun. In 1800, the castle is owned by the Bobinnec family. The seigneurie belonged in 1407 to Eon Kernigues, Squire of the Duke Jean v. It then passed to the Lestrin of Saint-Avé, the Keriolet Gouvello (Pierre Le Gouvello was born there. Converted he died in 1660), to M. de Moncan, to the the Ville-Gonan.

    The garden was planted of medicinal plants and a vegetable garden. It must be said that at the end of his life the man without faith nor law, housed a hospice at the rear of the Castle. The 17C marked the transformation of the Park in a French style garden.
    The 2 highlights of this park are camellias with over 15 varieties and remarkable charms,you can admire a beautiful cedar of the bicentennial Lebanon brought back by an ancestor of the current owner, who was Captain in the Royal Navy.

    Its chapel was restored in the 18C, as well as its beautiful stables. Acquired around 1800, by Armand de Bobinnec. The House is now the property of his descendants, the family Bourjac.

    another jewel of my new area. See it at heritage days usually in September.

    Fondest memory: This is even more difficult to find as there is no panel on the road D102 and we found it by pinpointing the lieu-dits on the map and figuring the grassy wooden entry off the road looks like a grand house was there. Well , it proved right as once going thru this narrow one way road, passing some rusted gate, we came across the beauty of this castle

    Chateau de Kéronic

    they are there above, of course its part of the heritage of my new town, and maybe you are here on heritage days or can be seen with reservation.

    The first one encounter was the Château de Kéronic, a private residence sitting in a long one way road that at the end into the woods you come across the castle right at you!! Beautiful property that is usually open on heritage days in September.

    A bit of history, my hobby amateur but doing it for many years and volunteer and or friend of many here in France. It is an imposing remake of the 15C / 17C reworked by the family Harscouët Saint George circa 1860. It is still the property of this family, currently represented by the vicomte Christian de la Tullaye.

    The lordship of Queronic or Keronic was Henry de Launay in 1427. In 1717 it passed by marriage to the Lenvos Carpenter, who kept the castle until the Revolution. In the 19C, the Castle entered the family Harscouët Saint George.

    The entrance to the cour d’honneur, several times restored, has a pond ; a private chapel, is surrounded by a large forest. The park of Keronic was designed by Legendre in the 1880s, is remarkable with its land plants from Heather, rhododendrons, camellias and hydrangeas, as well as its exotic trees, sequioas, araucarias, etc… It is with a pond and a garden à la française. The castle can be seen from afar, from the grid, at the end a long aisle of beautiful trees, 2.5 km to the Northwest of Pluvigner, right of the road D102 to Languidic.

    Fondest memory: driving on country roads so tiny only cover the widths of my car and yet finding so much history and beautiful properties in my new home. Country style.

    Again walk Pluvigner

    by gwened Written Sep 8, 2013

    Favorite thing: We took our real first walk as a family today in town, just walking around on a quiet Sunday, visiting some central town areas and walking along its residential areas and schools. Very nice all so clean and neat with big houses and large patios , its a thrill to do so.

    I always said the best way to know a city is to walk, whether it is as a visitor or a resident, so much to learn and know and walking allows all.

    Enjoy Pluvigner.

    Fondest memory: walking the main three squares in town ,Marché, St Michel,and Notre Dame des Orties.

    Rue de la Diligence towards St Guigner another look at St Guigner and the public toilets! the side front of the mayor's office or mairie the post office and bank building the water dept tower

    Walk Pluvigner

    by gwened Updated Sep 6, 2013

    Favorite thing: The city of Pluvigner is now my town with over 7000 folks . Recently decided to take a walk in it and take some pictures lol!! VT obliges. More to come as I settled In ::)

    Like I repeat many times, walking a city is the best way to see it, feel it, know it, and be part of it. Dont use any transport than your own feet,and walk.

    Pluvigner is no exception.

    Fondest memory: be there on market day Saturday mornings ,and go to church st Guigner lovely
