One of the first Relais & Chateau Property, this elegant 19th-century chateau and country house is set on the Blavet river and estuary in southern Brittany combining modern comfort with traditional French design.


erched above the Blavet river, this elegant Relais & Chateau Property was recently renovated and is set in a 19th-century chateau and an adjacent country house just 10 km from Lorient in the southern region of Brittany.

Locguénolé is located next to the dark waters of a sea inlet in the heart of a land of legends. The Château and the small Manor House overlook a wide estuary where the light and landscape change with the tides. These buildings from the 18th and early 19th centuries are set in wooded parkland and have remained in the hands of the same family for centuries. They boast a combination of modern comfort and tradition with classical décor and period furniture.

The domaine features two restaurants: L'Inattendu and La Maison Alyette run by young talented chef, Yann Maget. The creative cuisine is based on a subtle pairing of ingredients from the Morbihan terroir and the ocean.

A private pontoon permits sailors travelling up the Blavet from Lorient harbour to dock at this delightful haven and boat rentals are available by request.
