PEACE, PRIVACY AND HISTORY IN A MAGICAL SETTING
Le Mur' (The wall) is a privately owned estate situated on the highest peak in the surrounding countryside, and is a historic site recognized by the French Government. Le Mur was at one time a Medieval hamlet that sat along-side the ancient 'Roman Road'. These impressive stone structures
still exists today as the Manoir and its adjacent outbuildings. Historic ruins on the site include a Roman earth berm or wall (hence the name 'Le Mur') that was built for observation and protection
for the Roman soldiers who utilized the site as
a military camp, foundations of a Roman Temple, and a chariot drive. The remains of two
medieval forts and moats have also been
discovered on the property.
Located in the bucolic countryside, Le Mur is central to everything Brittany has to offer, from large Medieval towns on both the Channel and Atlantic Coasts, to lovely touristic villages just minutes away.
As guests of Le Mur, the vast property and its environs are at your disposal. Enjoy an afternoon picnic under the shade of the ancient Roman Arch (at one time the entry to the hamlet),
hike along the numerous wooded paths, romp through fields of wild flowers to feed and play with the miniature pony and Ouessant sheep (the smallest breed of sheep in the world),
read a book or simply nap under a canopy of trees in the apple, peach and pear orchards.
The property can also be rented in its entirety, and can hold up to 50+ guests making it a comfortable place for celebrations, weddings, reunions, as well as workshops, corporate, and Spiritual retreats. Ernie and Terry Monaco, the American owners of Le Mur, will be on-site to assist you with any questions on the area and to make your holiday a carefree, peaceful stay.
