The current castle was built in 1758, and was the property of the Pluvié family, from 1460 until 1985. This castle was modified around 1758 by Jean-Toussaint de Pluvié who added a private chapel dedicated to Notre-Dame de Sion. It is currently the property of the town of Plouay. The facade includes an oval pediment on which are carved the coat of arms of the Pluvié family.

The park, now public, offers locals and visitors an area entirely devoted to leisure: a place to walk, it offers mountain biking circuits, a play area for children, an all-sports park and a skate park. The Domaine de Manéhouarn park opens the doors of its fifty-hectare park to you. On foot, on horseback or by bike, you can discover the many paths accessible from the estate. Children will not be left out thanks to the play areas provided for them. And fishermen will have plenty of time to give free rein to their passion in one of the ponds located in the area. As for the castle, unfortunately closed to the public. You can rent gîtes or rental apartment in the domaine property an adjacent building to the castle.

The Notre Dame de Sion Chapel was the domestic chapel of the Pluvié family built in the Manehouarn estate in 1661. Renovated by firefighters after its acquisition by the town of Plouay, it houses the recently renovated and listed statue of Saint Michael. The town of Plouay bought the Domaine de Manéhouarn, castle and park, from Count Henri de Pluvié in 1985. Recently, two stained glass windows have been put back in place, one representing Santa Barbara and the other Notre-Dame de Sion. The chapel has been renovated by the firefighters’ association and the outbuildings of the castle have been converted into gîtes (rental lodgings) by the town.
