A listed, Louis XIII style chateau and outbuildings,
surrounded by almost 4 hectares, in Côtes d'Armor

Dinan, COTES-D'ARMOR brittany 22100 FR


This chateau is in the far east of the French department of Côtes d’Armor, very near to the border of that of Ille-et-Vilaine. The fast dual carriageway linking Rennes to Saint-Malo is about 7 km away. The centre of the market town, less than 2 km away, has all shops and amenities (doctors, a dentist, a chemist, schools, etc.). Furthermore, the neighbouring river La-Rance is navigable as far as its mouth near Dinard. Rennes’ TGV train station, some 30 minutes away, puts the property just 2 hours from Paris.


Tall gates, along a little lane winding its way through the surrounding countryside, provide access to a 200 m long driveway. This north-south facing chateau stands at the end. On the east side of the chateau are a little wood and parklands, housing a caretaker’s cottage as well as a vast outbuilding which could have its own entrance. This property spans a total of 3.8 hectares.

The chateau

This chateau is typical of those second Renaissance period chateaux, characterised by their traditional layout around a closed courtyard, with a lower entrance wing and a large gateway decorated with banded columns as well as antique ornaments such as masks, caryatids etc.
The main building, with its five bays, comprises a base level and three floors with a central half-pace stone stairway.
Two lower wings, spanning a ground floor topped with attic space, flank this building and lead to the entrance pavilions.
The west wing consists of 2 vast rooms and ends with a pavilion housing an old bread oven and 2 lounges. Whilst the east wing contains an open-plan flat and its pavilion notably houses a vaulted shell-marl stone chapel.
The chateau spans a total of approx. 1,700 m² of living space.

Our opinion

Although this chateau has undergone transformation works over its four centuries of existence, it nevertheless exudes a sort of perfection. It appears that it could still be used to illustrate a presentation on architecture from the Second Renaissance or the French Baroque period. The eye is not disturbed by its various hues: the grey of the Brittany stone is ideal for enhancing the decor of the entrance wing, the lateral wings with their domed pavilions as well as the central building. The carcass is in an excellent state of repair. The function rental activity, for which it is fully equipped, will make it possible to continue converting the vast areas. Unless, of course, the new owners wish to keep one of Brittany’s gems all to themselves.
