Student Testimonials:

Kerrouet House:
Kerrouet House - was built in the 16th century as the home of the tax collector for the nearby Manor of Plessy and two other manor houses in the area. As a "royal" longere it fell into neglect during the French Revolution and was abandoned for many years.

In recent times it has been home to a professor of Mathematics (Sorbonne) but unfortunately fell into a near derelict state in the 1990's. The house was discovered on a holiday visit to Brittany.

Despite the jungle of nettles, thistles and ivy, Niall fell in love with the monastic stone entrances, grand fireplaces and royal chimney. Over the past few years artisans have worked hard to restore the property and now the premises are used as a successful cooking school.
