Chateau De Josselin - Review
Standing on the banks of the Oust River is this medieval castle that has been standing there for almost a millennium now. The renaissance era and the feudal architecture of the old times both seem to have made an impact on the building of the castle. The facade is gothic, the dining room, inspired by the middle ages and the interiors, just magnificent in their entirety. The castle is still owned by the Rohan family, its original founders. Highlights include:
- The three towers that overlook the Oust River
- Family portraits on the walls of the castle
- A monumental fireplace in the flamboyant sitting room
- Park for kids
- Tree-lined grounds
- An English Style Rose Garden
- Dolls Museum
- Guided Tour

Chateau De Josselin, Vannes Reviews
It was lovely to see, sadly there is only a leaflet in English. Tour is naturally given in French, but tape recorders in other languages would be better. Tour guide does speak English however and is happy to explain things. Chateau is a home, so only a few rooms open, but nevertheless worth a visit, as it Josselin town. Definitely worth the trip
A really beautiful castle. I went with my family and we all really enjoyed the tour. Tours are offered in French, English and Spanish. We went on a tour at 2:30, and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. You can only go around the castle with a tour and you are not allowed to take photos of the inside, as it is private property. The gardens that are open are quite pleasant, although small.
Beautiful castle and great tour guide (tours are either English, Spanish or french). Learnt some really interesting history about the castle and its many previous owners and got to see the lovely downstairs interior. Nice gardens and stunning decoration on the outside. Well worth a visit!
The castle was amazing, however you could not take pictures inside. I only speak English, and took a French guided tour. A family lives there, so only guided tours.
The guide did try with her English and was very apologetic when she couldn't find the words. The tour itself was very informative and the grounds were lovely. My only criticism is only 1 floor is accessible because it's a private residence.
