Manior de Kerdanet is a very special place in a very beautiful part of Brittany and its hosts, Monique and Sid, are very special people. Monique and Sid are at once urbane, sophisticated and gracious while being warm, personable and humorous. They love being hosts to travelers and they love their Manior with its rich history and beautiful architecture. They make taking care of guests look effortless and never tire of offering those amenities that really make guests feel comfortable and at truly at home. It is never too late at in the evening for a nice Earl Gray tea or a table set for a late snack, but the most enjoyable offering is their good and willing conversation about the Manoir, its history, French and English language literature, music, art, world affairs and all other imaginable and unimaginable topics. Monique and Sid are experts on what to do and see and where to go in their part of Brittany. They know the unexplored hiking paths, the ancient Celtic tombs deep in the woods, the centuries old chapel tucked out of sight along the road and the history of nearly every building and farmstead in the area. These are the really great discoveries for travelers seeking the intimate history of the countryside.They
generously share their knowledge of these things as questions are asked and interests are expressed by their guests. With all this said these two vibrant people have even more to offer. Consider Monique's breakfasts which reflect 25 plus years of world travel with Air France. She has cleverly adopted food combinations not usually found in French culture for her unique take on Breton breakfast. She makes a different cake each morning along with her personally made crepes and croissants accompanied with fresh fruits and hand squeezed orange juice. I won't divulge the rest of the delights. You need to come and experience for yourself at her exquisitely set table. As guests enter the great room for breakfast Sid is always there to greet you with a handshake and a kind inquiry about your night's rest and general health. When we arrived at Kerdanet we were greeted by Monique and Sid as if we were long time friends and when we reluctantly left Kerdanet we felt the warmth and satisfaction of being new friends to Monique and Sid. For a true traveler's experience of Brittany and France stop and tarry at Kerdanet. And for a true experience of meeting two great people please go to Kerdanet.
