Pleumeleuc is a commune in the department of Ille-et-Vilaine in Brittany. The town of Pleumeleuc is part of the county of Montfort-sur-Meu and of the town of Rennes. La Vaunoise river goes through the town and many pedestrian paths follow the banks. It is surrounded by Montfort-sur-Meu, Bédée, La Nouaye, Breteil, Iffendic, Talensac, Saint-Gonlay.


Pleumeleuc was a former early parish which included the towns of Bédée, Breteil, Clayes, Le Lou-du-Lac and La Nouaye. During the XIth century, the parish of Pleumeleuc was given to the benedictin monks of Saint-Melaine abbey. In 1218, Raoul, bishop of Saint-Malo, made it know that the abbot of Saint-Melaine had introduced him to the clierc Pierre de Tinténiac so that this last could be in charge of the church of Pleumeleuc. Pierre de Tinténiac, reserving all the rights on the taxes of the parish for himself, the bishop said that he had entrusted him the souls and had left him the place in the church.
During the XVIIth century, the two priories of Bédée and Hédé shared the charges of Pleumeleuc. But, during the XVIIIth century, as the priest had to be paid, the monks of Saint-Melaine only asked for 2/3 of the tithe of Pleumeleuc and left all that was left to the priest for his own money bag.
