The history of the Manor of Ranléon begins in the 13th century with the construction of the first manor since disappeared. The second mansion was built on the same site in the 17th century with the first wing of the building.
It is in the 18th century that the second wing is built, then the third wing in the 19th century thus conferring on the Manor its current shape of U closed by a stone arch.
In the 70-hectare property there is also a chapel, dating from the 19th century, in which is still celebrated today a mass per year and various family events. The manor of Ranléon has always been kept in the same family ensuring family continuity. The current occupants represent the 22nd generation.
But the Manor is not just a Breton building ... It also contains a story related to the 2nd World War. Indeed, Marie Noémie Halna Fretay, hosted during the 2nd World War, many resistant in the attics of the house. His door was still open and anyone who wanted it could find shelter in these walls. Today, the "hiding place" in the granaries still exists.
Halna's eldest son from Fretay was also recognized for his courage during the Second World War. Maurice, born in 1920, was just 19 years old when the war broke out. He was preparing to enter the law school of Rennes when he enlisted in the air force. He began taking flight lessons in 1937 on the Dinan aerodrome, about fifteen kilometers away, and in 1940 he became a student sailing in Aulnat. He will be demobilized after the armistice of June 1940 without being able to participate actively in the defense of France. He returned to the Manor where he had put his private plane and flies, from the driveway of the property, to England on November 15, 1940.
After further training, he will complete his first mission with the Royal Air Force on November 27, 1941.
He made many missions over France until August 1942, when his plane disappears at sea during the operation "Jubilee" on Dieppe.
On the cabin of his Hurricane, he had written these currencies: "breizh dalc'h mad" ("Brittany, hold on! "And" Kentoc'h mervel "(" Rather death "), beginning of the motto of Anne of Brittany" Rather death than defilement ".
He is knight of the Legion of Honor, companion of liberation and knight of the order of the British Empire. He also received the 1939-1945 War Cross with Palm, the Resistance Medal with Rosette, the Cross of the Order of Liberation and the Medal of the Evaded.
In 1946, General de Gaulle came to the Manoir de Ranléon inaugurate the stele dedicated to Mauritius.
