The Château de Kerisper of Pluneret !

So, back again in my local road warrior moods and decided to have a ride by the coast very close to my home.  I have done a post on this castle but came back for a repeat visit, love castles. I have to say was disappointed because it looks more rundown than my previous visit, even if it is private and rented out for events and mariages. Let me tell you a bit more on the Château de Kerisper of Pluneret !

The Château de Kerisper is located in the Gulf of Morbihan and accessible by boat, the castle has parts that date from the 14C. Bordered by a wooded forest on one side and by a river on the other, it is an enchanted setting. The castle alone is more than 1300 m² of living space. There is also the pavilion, the old chapel, the kennel, the well, the farm, the pond, and the park.
