“An excellent historical visit!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

The boat trip from Carantec beach is a must if you are spending a few days in the area. We were fortunate enough to do this visit on a sunny day, and saw some amazing scenery in the Baie de Morlaix (which is beautiful), learning about pirates and influences on Hergé for Tintin, and lots more. The Introduction and historical speech to le Chateau is very interesting and well presented. We then had forty minutes or so to wander round and let our imaginations wonder!
A great visit for kids and adults alike!

“Must visit!”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 via mobile

Superb castle to visit, great for kids (any age suitable). If you could attend one, choose a theatrical visit, it is much more interesting then the others

“Beautifully restored XVIth century Vauban Fortress”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

After a forty minute boat trip from Le Diben (port of Plougasnou) we reached this wonderful fortress. It looks like a scaled down version of Fort Boyard. The guide gave us a very clear picture of the history of fortress and then we were free to roam. You can easily imagine what life would have been like for a prisoner of soldier inside this building. The 360 degree view from the terrace was great. A visit to be recommended, specifically for boys with sufficient imagination.

Reviewed 22 March 2013

Great place to visit, just 5 mins in the car from the B & B we were staying in, lots of history with such an old building.
