Notes: Manoir de Kervaudu is a manor in the town of Le Croisic, in the French department of Loire-Atlantique. He is the first Breton mansion classified as historical monuments in 1921. The rural mansion Kervaudu is built in the late fifteenth century. In the sixteenth century, it is the property of Aubin Le Roy, one of the first Protestant Croisic (in Guérande, Castle Careil also belongs to a Protestant family). The house then passes the Gentleman family one of whose members, Rene, Sieur de Lespine and Kervaudu, became known for having predicted twice the birth of the Dauphin, the future Louis XIV. He became historian of Gaston d'Orleans, brother of Louis XIII, and royal poet. Disgraced and exiled in Holland, he died in Sucé-sur-Erdre in 1670 without having abjured his Protestant faith. The manor was bought by local notables. It is sold as national property during the French Revolution before being converted into a farm in the nineteenth century. It became the residence of Ferdinand du Puigaudeau, Post-Impressionist painter in 1907 until his death in 1930. Attached to the Pont-Aven school, the artist painted his mansion from multiple angles. His daughter, the ethnologist Odette du Puigaudeau, spends his childhood.
