  • I put way but the tour is very interesting for architecture because here we visit a House of St - Malo of the eighteenth century. We expected that the visit should more focus on the privateer, Surcouf on, but no!

  • A must-see: the owner of this tour family has preserved the historical richness of this beautiful House, and even if the furnishings are rare, the sets are original and splendid! One can quite imagine negotiating spices to the big time!

  • Superb visit (1 h 15 ~), with an enthusiast as a guide. Humour and anecdotes, I had a great time! Do not go there on a rainy day (many people), try to spend the morning has 10 hours to fully enjoy the guide and his incredible knowledge.

  • Well worth a visit. Guide passionate and exciting, very good speaker/storyteller and humorous. Once over the visit, you come out full of stars in the head and specialist of the corsairs. Worth the drive.

  • Excellent explanations given with humor, the guide was great. A little disappointed n have visited only three pieces that were are all fairly trivial, but learned a lot about privateers. The kids got a little hard to follow (5 and 7 years old) and s also waited to see objects and more specific rooms.

  • A guided tour that plunges us into the atmosphere of this time of privateers, a passionate guide who knows his subject on the tips of the fingers, the home is beautiful, we spent a little more than two hours without us noticing, I highly recommend!
