  • This wonderful 13th century château in upper Concarneau was given a neo-Gothic makeover by the Russian imperial princess, Tsar Nicolas II’s aunt, Zenaida Yusopova.

    Keriolet manor dates back to the 13th century. It was redesigned by princess Zenaida for her young spouse, the Count of Chauveau in Concarneau, a commoner for whom she purchased two noble titles. Extremely fond of the region, the princess's design uses numerous symbols to represent Breton history and tradition (Breton couples in traditional dress, stoat's paws, Breton nationalist symbols etc.) During the 20th century, the Château de Keriolet belonged to several different owners, including the princess’s grandson, Felix Yusupov, who was famous for his role in the assassination of Rasputin. Since 1988, the Château has been wonderfully restored. Nowadays the site hosts some top electronic music events. The famous DJ, Laurent Garnier was here on 12 May 2010 for a party that lasted long into the night.
