  • The friendliness of the hostesses and the documentation will help you in your journey. Videos in several areas of the site explain very clearly the work of the masters of forges, workers and many Colliers of the wonderful and magical Paimpont forest

  • The site of the Forges of Paimpont is ideal for receptions, weddings and other event. For my part, passionate about old vehicles of the brand in the two rafters, I is organized in the rolling mill two exhibitions, one on the must-have Traction, the other on the mythical DS.

  • Visited this place in less than a half hour. A bit disappointing. Not much to see, apart from a film in a room which shows the activities of the forges once.

  • My question is: why not have integrated the Forge Museum? Well it's ruins but not enough sign that could give life because not even an anvil to help visitors. € 5, I find it extremely expensive. Maybe the €6,5 with guided tour would be more suitable but unfortunately not possible during the week.

  • The place is nice but still quite dilapidated. In some time repair work already undertaken will to blow on a lovely place. In the meantime, the tour is a little hollow for the € 7 it costs. The problem is that all of the mini-sites of Brocéliande cost as much and are distant 10 km. We'd like a global pass.
