Château de Bienassis
22430 Erquy

Bienassis is an enchanting place packed with history! Explore the French-style gardens, moats, stables, ‘cour d’honneur’ courtyard, chapel and furnished interior.
The Château de Bienassis has a striking facade of pink Erquy sandstone that blends seamlessly into the vast landscape over which this 15th Century castle watches: on a clear day you can see the Channel Islands – and yet an approaching horseman would have been unable to distinguish the castle from its surroundings! The castle’s present name comes from the term ‘bien sis’ (‘well-located’), and it is certainly an accurate description of this 15th-17th century historical monument protected by its moats. The estate, which was used as a prison during the French Revolution, is a still complete manorial residence that has been owned by the Kerjegu family since 1880.
