"Chateau by the Oust River" Josselin by TimDaoust

Josselin Travel Guide: 33 reviews and 104 photos

We visited this beautiful chateau in the summer of 2007, mainly for its proximity to the Oust river. We think our ancestors are from this area and I knew my dad wanted to see the Brittany of his ancestors. We booked a bed and breakfast in the nearby town of Malestroit and were able to drive our rental car here in about fifteen minutes. I'm not sure if there's any other way to get into this town as the closest train station is in Rennes. The chateau is not all that there is here to see as there is a beautiful cathedral and enough winding cobblestone roads and restaurants to content yourself for an afternoon and evening if not several days.

The chateau itself is situated overlooking the Oust river and tours are inexpensive and multilingual. For more info on tours and history, check these links:



Here's a view of the streets of Josselin near the Cathedral.
