“Kerganiet” is the name of our small and pitoresque village. It can also provide confortable “chambres d’hôtes” in a typical village atmosphere!
“This family affair” created with a certain passion in order to continue the long history of the “Madec” family in this village.
In fact, the farm itself dates from the 16th century – previous that the romans were present- their chapel on the hill and their roman fountain which still exists and xhich has been renvated. These facts were established by the discovery of an ancient document whilst helping to move the library books of the local church. The 2 treehouses Baman and Pradan are perched above the roman fountain : really magic!
Jean and Anna Madec, the grand parents, now in the sunset of their lives, but still full of energy and good will, will be delighted to meet you for a quick hello.
They worked in the farm by producing milk, vegetables, pigs and rabbits until 1980. They worked by ancient traditionnal way, all by hand, “blood sweat and tears”, for a time with Margot, the dedicated and faithfull farm horse. By 1980 agruculture modernises and the farm is no longer economically viable, plus the fact that after years of dedicated work has to cease their activities. The farm, the buildings anf fields start to fall into a ruin.
It is why Myriam and Arno, lovers of nature, refuse to say die. Born, at that moment, the project of Dihan, to the great delight and hapiness of the grand parents who see the revival of their farm. Enormous challenge requiered courage, passion and lots of hard work.
