On the heights of the town, 5 minutes from the Ville Close of Concarneau, the chateau recounts the unusual destiny of the Russian Imperial Princess Zénaïde Narischkine-Yusupov and her husband count Charles de Chauveau.
« The dream of a Russian princess…»
An exceptional heritage.
Originating from the 13th century, the manor was redesigned by the Diocesan architect Joseph Bigot at the end of the 19th century on behalf of the Princess Zénaïde Narischkine, aunt of Tsar Nicolas II. She financed this superb neo-Gothic building as a gift to her husband, count Charles de Chauveau. In the course of the 20th century the chateau changed hands several times, one of the many owners was the grandson of the Princess, prince Félix Youssoupov (famous for being the murderer of Rasputin).
