Owner description: Spend a day in a Breton farm from 1850 ! In this well preserved setting a fun and modern visitor experience awaits you. Ideal for young and old alike, come along and experience the day-to-day lives of our ancestors. A fun experience : learn while enjoying yourself, whatever your age ! Try your hand at a treasure hunt and enjoy the play area with 17 Breton games. A living farm : Seeing is one thing, taking part is something altogether different ! Participate in the activities, including discovering the animals, feeding them, and moorland milling. A great time for all : Give your senses a treat ! Taste the butter, the pancakes, and listen to the noises of the washerwomen'slaundry beetles. Feel the textureof the wool.

We Liked everything about our visit here. Even my 7 year old granddaughter was fully involved in the visit and activities, and did not want to leave. They have a really good restaurant and traditional working stone oven, greart bread!

“Time travel”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

It gives you a good idea of Breton village life in the 19th century. If your French is not good however you will miss out on some of their talks as conducted in French only.

“Fascinating glimpse into a gone-by life”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Two km south of Quistinc is the 'living museum' of Poul Fetan - a pretty village of thatched cottages complete with a working pottery and bake house, that preserves the traditional crafts and farming practices of 19th century rural Brittany.
For centuries the village of Poul-Fetan was home to 4 or 5 families, and was inhabited until 1970. It was acquired by the Quistinic Community in 1977 and restored. There are a variety of daily demonstrations which include wool spinning, crepe making, Breton games, washerwomen, head-dress starching and hand milking the cows. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would suggest allowing about 4 hours for a leisurely tour of the village and watching most of the demonstrations. There is even an Inn where you will be able to sample traditional food and drink of the era.
