The Château de Suscinio part of the town of Sarzeau in the Rhuys peninsula!   We came to see the area, even thinking for a while of  purchasing a home here. The castle is in my beautiful Morbihan dept 56 of my lovely Bretagne and in my belle France. I have plenty of text on its history and construction so this post will be more of a pictorial of pictures that needd to be in my blog.

The Château de Suscinio ; manor then residence of pleasure of the Dukes of Brittany, this castle breathes its 8 centuries of History and adventures! You will come to it at the last moment, in a bend between pretty thatched cottages. Its location is amazing: the castle surrounded by marshes and woods has a sea view, more precisely on the cove of Landrezac. In the 13C, Suscinio was a priory around which an agricultural estate developed. It grew under the impetus of the Dukes of Brittany who set up a first manor there. This was then redesigned and enlarged to become the princely residence visible today. At the time, it was the favorite residence of the Dukes of Brittany and Anne of Brittany. Its vast enclosure is surrounded by moats and flanked by 6 towers. Travel back in time by visiting the grand Logis, the walkway, the 15C dwelling. and an extraordinary medieval pavement.

The plage de Suscinio beach is a beautiful beach with many possibilities. The place is pleasant and allows everyone to relax, swim, put their feet in the water… The beach is also very popular in the summer. It is also a beautiful iodized walk in all seasons.
