Must see · Castle · Tourist Spot
Château de Kerjean is a 16th-century fortified chateau (manor house) located close to the town of Saint-Vougay, in the Finistère department of Brittany, France.
It was originally built for members of the Barbier family (later titled as Marquis de Kerjean) between the 1540s and 1590s. The chateau was damaged in the 1790s during the French Revolution, and fell into further disrepair during the 19th century.

The building was taken into state care in 1911 and restored in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Standing in a 20-hectare park, the house, park and some out-lying structures (including a large dovecote) are open to the public.

  • Very nice place, interesting exhibition. Warmly recommended.
  • Lovely little chateau, you could actually get in this one as well. There are several chateau in the area but they do not have websites like Britain and can be quite difficult to find the entrance as they are on private land and sat navs take you down dodgy routes. Very quiet area and not at all busy, very reasonable entrance fee ( only cost us €20). Children between 5 and 12 are usually free.
