  • As one of the main attractions in Josselin, this impressive chateau with a history as long as the centuries it has witnessed offers tours during the late spring and summer season. Unfortunately for us...  more »
  • Very nice Castle mainly from the outside. The inside is not without interest also. The grounds are beautiful.

  • A gem in its setting, which is the beauty of Josselin. What a pity that the visit of the Park is charged, however is more for locals, which is a good thing. Good initiative, the route to mysteries for children and adults for Halloween, we enjoyed. The Duke and a part of his family live in the Castle, so we can visit only the ground floor, with a guide who makes the historical narrative. See also (free) exposure on Olivier de Clisson, on the 1st floor of the Tourist Office.

  • Fairytale castle with beautiful views. More interesting for an adult rather than a child.
  • Always stop here for few hours en route (!) to airport. We love it here. Plan on staying overnight next time !
  • Had to stand in the rain to wait for our tour then when it started there was a lot of standing around taking about it before we were allowed in. As it was all in French with nothing visual and with it not being very pram friendly we, along with a number of others on the tour cut our losses. From what we heard of the tour afterwards we are glad we did as it consisted of being locked into one room and then the next while they talk about it all which isn't great with kids.
  • Such a beautiful place, the english tour is brilliant. Two steps to get in and out but able to do them in a wheelchair. Everything is so well looked after.
  • The grounds were beautiful and the tour was very interesting and in depth. Quinten was our English your guide who described everything very well and made the tour entertaining. Many times our group were in laughter. Would definitely recommend!
