Château de Keronic of Pluvigner !!

Oh yes we have castles here too, and very nice ones right in my little town of Pluvigner.  Although private ,you can see them in heritage days or garden days on some years. We have visited in these days and also going by just to take a peek.  This was on a gardens day visit , and glad we came. I am updating this older post for you and me. Therefore, let me tell you about the Château de Keronic of Pluvigner !!

From the grid at the end of a long beautiful road of trees, 2,5 km from city center Pluvigner, right on the road D 102 direction Languidic. This is the Château Keronic!! of course in my beautiful Morbihan and lovely Bretagne . As said, we have gone there and even if private wandered around its park, and now was open again due to the gardens of Brittany event so we were there of course. And had a nice conversation with the owner who had their lunches in summer under the tulipier of Virginia tree as seen below!

It is an imposing mansion of the 15-17C, but largely renovated by the Harscouët family of Saint Georges around 1860. It is still the property of this family, currently represented by Viscount Christian de la Tullaye. Set amidst large woods, the castle has a large Chapel. In addition, another Chapel exists in the park along an alley, south of the Castle.

It is occupied successively by the families of Launay since 1426-1427 and until the 16C, Eudo de Kervilio , from 1536 to the end of the 17C, Carpenter of Lenvos in 1717, Harscouët de Saint-Georges from 1802, the estate was not fragmented during the 19C and thus retains all its spatial organization. The installations of the 17-19C, both in the gardens and in the castle, are well preserved and of great value. The Saint-Joseph Chapel with its altarpiece as well as the decorations of the Logis-salons of the 18C, staircase with baluster with its stained glass, library, oriental style wallpaper-also participate in the heritage interest of this domain.

The park of Keronic  was designed by Legendre in the 1880’s and is remarkable with its land plants such as heather,  rhododendrons, camellias and hydrangeas, as well as exotic trees such as sequioas, araucarias, etc.  It has a pond and French style garden.  All very nice indeed.
