The Château de Josselin is a medieval fortress -and one of Brittany's Renaissance highlights - still owned today by its original founders, the Rohan family.
This splendid residence inhabited by the Rohan family for almost a thousand years stands on the banks of the Oust river, in the heart of the Morbihan area. Come and discover its richly decorated interiors or while away the hours in the tree-lined grounds. With its three majestic towers overlooking the river and its sumptuous, flamboyantly designed gothic-style facade, the château is a remarkable testimony to feudal architecture and the Renaissance era. The dining room is set out in the decorative style that was fashionable in the late 19th century, and strongly inspired by the Middle Ages. A collection of family portraits are on display in the antechamber and you can also admire a splendid monumental fireplace dating back to the early 16th century, in the large sitting room.
