This chateau tells a sad story .Built in 19 century it was hardly lived in and then left , stripped of stuff and the current owner is trying to gradually renovate it.The kitchen with all its valuable tiles , that were not taken, is probably the highlight.Enjoyable

A Bit Disappointing
Aug 2019
The chateau is a bit rundown and in urgent need of significant investment. Our guide was unintelligible as she spoke far too fast and was not atall engaging. Probably the worst guide we have ever had. Shame.

Hogwarts in France - This is it!
Jul 2019 • Family
My wife and I were staying at the little manor house right next to this chateau. So we walked over to take the tour. Immediately, I was struck by the grandeur and gothic style of this chateau, two chained stone dogs ate the entrance with the warning “Cave Canum“ enscribed, I thought if Harry Potter and Hogwarts! Well, the tour was excellent and the chateau has an intriguing history of royalty, prince and princess, deception, hights of status and times of ruin. Its a must if you are nearby and have the time. 😉

Chateau steeped in history
Jul 2018 • Couples
Close to our accommodation, a visit to the chateau was a must. The guide gave us a glimpse of the history of this place, its owners/inhabitants and changes to the property over the years. Very enjoyable visit.

Lovely - but advertised as disabled friendly and IT IS NOT
Sep 2017 • Family
Lovely, quirky, quaint castle but my problem with this attraction is that the brochures market it as wheelchair friendly, and it is not. There is no disabled parking, the terrain is rough ground and to enter you have to go up steps and descent steps through the historic gate house and it's narrow door widths (this is where the ticket office is). This is also where the toilets are, and they are not wheelchair accessible, so this attraction is not suitable for wheelchair users - unless special arrangements can be made to bring you in through a different gate and you can exit your wheelchair to access the toilet.

The house itself has a few steps up/down to get around. I did not do the crypt part of the tour due to the number of stairs, but I managed to walk about the house with crutches, leaving my wheelchair in the car.

The tour guides are voluntary and we had a lovely young student giving our tour - she was actually Polish, studying English Art History but living in France since a child I think. The tour was in French but we had been given an English paper guide so I didn't feel like we missed out on anything, plus our guide did speak some English and could fill us in on bits and pieces.

A lovely attraction to visit. Quite unusual, small and quirky as castles and chateau's go. I do wish though that the French tourism board would crack down on these sites that say that they are wheelchair friendly, bit in reality are not. We came across this a few times.

Great castle but tour in French only
Aug 2017 • Family
Yes we're in France but the group was mainly British and we couldn't understand most of what was said. We were given handouts (but not enough for one each). Well worth going though if your French is up to it. Oh and milk for your coffee (which comes in a thin plastic cup) is extra!

Nice little castle
Aug 2017 • Family
Our navigation did not show the address, but we thought that coming from Mousterlin we would surely see roadsigns along the route toward Concarneau...but we didn't see any until we were at E. Leclerc! From there it's a few minutes drive.
The grounds and forest are nice. When driving through the main gate it feels a bit like if almost no one comes here. It feels desolated.
For a family of four access costs only 16,50 euro's. Ok, it's not a big castle and it's too bad most of all the original relics have been stolen during the ages. But still it's an ok morning filler. The outside looks very pretty and one can make really nice photos from the gardens around the castle.
English hand-outs with the ancient story about the Russian princess are provided. The tour is in French but the friendly students can also answer your questions in English.
One just wonders how the Russian princess could converse with her Western knight.
Not all the rooms are open for visitors. Rooms that are open are on the ground floor and below.
You can have a pancake, tea or coffee afterwards.

What most people don't see is that there is a very large playground just behind the trees...

Worth a visit
Aug 2017 • Couples
Not a large chateau by French standards but well worth a visit as it is steeped in history. Tours are available at reasonable rates and the grounds can be used for picknicks.
