A great way to spend a typical showery Brittany morning. The staff were very helpful and provided a charming English guide. The history of the Chateau was fascinating, in beautiful surroundings.

I would recommend a visit to support the cause of restoring the castle but be aware you can't visit the castle unless you take a guided tour so probably good to find out in advance what times the tours are at. If you rock up early there is not much to entertain kids or even adults. The volunteer guides are... More

We enjoyed the visit , particularly the guided tour by volunteer guides who had a wealth of knowledge about this amazing place. The eclectic mix of architecture and the history of the occupants and links to Russian royalty make for a really good morning or afternoon. The gardens are lovely and lots of people spend time sketching the fantastic details... More

The story of the castle is one that you should hear, as we did, from a lovely young French student with an excellent command of the English language, the connection with Prince Yousopoff (see the headline) is indirect. He is the grandson of the Russian Princess who rebuilt this chateau in the nineteenth century. The castle clearly has seen better... More

Currently undergoing restoration, the 10 (out of 44) rooms open to the public are both fascinating and a great example of how a Russian Princess made her mark in Brittany. The tour around the chateau takes 1 hour and seems to fly by! The volunteer tour guide, supporting the restoration, spoke excellent English - but all the staff were very... More

This Chateau is being refurbished very slowly, 28 years and counting. There is not that much inside, contents having been sold off by previous, less dedicated, owners. The story is interesting and very well presented by the guides. Unfortunately, we were kept waiting in the rain without cover (while a tent was available just a few feet away) because there... More

Interesting mixture of styles and beautiful exterior and kitchen. The story of the castle is even better: love, greed, and deceit. Sound like a soap from more than a hundred year ago. Special thanks to guide who was a volunteer.

A fascinating and impressive place to stroll around, with intriguing history and connections. The Petit Manoir is the most fabulous place to stay for a holiday!

Very nice tour-lots of historical interest, you have to go on the official tour and can't just wander around, but it was very informative; the talk is in French but a book with a translation is provided

Strangely fascinating architectural mishmash of all sorts of different styles, both outside and inside. Chateau has been restored over last few years, interior can only be visited in company of a guide. The female guide who looked after our group was very engaging and well informed, but spoke far too fast for most non-native French speakers to understand. fortunately I... More
