one of the hunting residence of the Dukes of Brittany, sitting just by the bay entrance to the gulf at below Sarzeau in the presqu'il de Rhuys. It was begun about 1218AD and continue improvements, until 1798 the French revolution sold it as national property to the viscount of franchevill, who in turn in 1965 gave it the general Council of the Morbihan, the local govt for upkeeps, still is .

it remained very well maintained, there are many cultural activities are held there now. You need a car to get to it very small village. You can see a tapestry of 30 000 medieval patches showing the man of the middle ages mixing their dreams with dragons and lions.

admission is 7,50€ adults,and it is open January to November 14h-17h, February,March,and October, 14h-18h, and April to September 10h-19h. Closed dec 24,25, 31, and jan 1; check the site for updates on prices and hours.

You have a guided tour at 15h every day all year that is open; there are games for kids like treasure hunt, and heritage shops to learn about neat things.
