About Pleyben forest

In Brittany, between the Monts d’Arrée and the Black Mountains (Montagnes Noires), lies the Pleyben forest. From the forest, you can catch a glimpse of the Mont Saint-Michel, the highest point in Brittany (385 m).

The forest is made up of more than ten different species, including Vancouver fir, sycamore maple, wild cherry, Sitka spruce, chestnut, Douglas fir and red oak. There is also a wealth of biodiversity, with a river, two ponds below the plot, and five beehives.
These beehives were built by Pierre Douguet, the former owner, using wood from the forest, and were placed at the edge of the plot to allow small pollinating insects to work in hives built locally.
