You walk about 800m through pleasant woods to find the old mill buildings. It's unexpectedly brilliant, a serious glimpse of life 100 years ago and more. In summer anyway, the staff put on excellent demonstrations of aspects of life not so long ago. When we went, there was a demonstration at 1430hrs of butter-making; it was conducted by a young man who kept up a commentary, with demonstrations, of butter making from A-Z. He did it really well and children were well engaged all the way through. The demonstrator made a point of asking them questions - and then discussing the answers. The whole thing lasted an hour and a half - right to the point where he produced about half a pound of the beautifully shaped, finished product - ready to be spread on bread and sampled by everyone. An excellent visit in a beautiful place. Highly recommended

I am assured by guides at this museum that people lived in these homes with mud floors, poor sanitation, crowded conditions in the years after the Second World War. A visit here then helps us understand how quickly and by how much our lives have changed and should make us grateful for the quality of life we enjoy. This little village is located in stunning countryside with fabulously warm and welcoming people. It may off the main drag but it is well worth a diversion.

If you've had too much sun or the weather is dippy, this little valley offers a relaxing stroll with added historical interest. The Moulins de Kerouat consists of a hamlet of traditional buildings, including a working water-mill, set in a peaceful valley. Some are furnished and English visitors are given a helpful leaflet with details of the historical background. Fitter folk can visit the windmill on the overlooking hill and they have days when there are demonstrations. There is also a picnic area. The whole experience is very evocative. One warning - the safety is very poor in several places - notably unguarded water and a high stone staircase with no guard-rail. Paths can be slippery/muddy, too.

The small village of mills and a tannery dating from the 17th century is a little gem. We were delighted to walk among the two watermills, the bake houses, the dwellings and the surrounding meadows. It is all well managed environmentally too. The small windmill is worth the extra walk. One can imagine how tough life must have been for these semi industrial workers in the early days of a slow gathering industrial revolution. A brilliant site to spend an hour or so in.

This eco-museum is a village which has been kept it the way it was many years ago. It tells the story of former Breton life in a fascinating and educational way. Very interesting exhibitions and demonstrations, and absolutely fascinating architecture and design, especially for anyone who has a Breton house of their own!! Interesting for adults and children alike, with even a demonstration of old-fashioned outdoor games. Don't miss it!
