Visiting the Suscinio estate with the family allows you to become completely immersed in medieval history, following in the footsteps of the legendary knights to have captured our imaginations. Emerging from the forest, the 13th century fortress built between land and sea, offers a breathtaking panoramic view across the Morbihan Bay. The curtain wall, wall walk, arrow slits and machicolations all contribute to the landscape, revealing how powerful the Duchy of Brittany was.
Between Redon and the ocean, minor roads and footpaths hug the winding Vilaine river. Follow them to see sailboats traveling up the river, or choose to explore one of the most picturesque villages in France. La Roche-Bernard offers two different points of view embracing the charm of its ancient past. High up on its rocky promontory, the village is dominated by Château de Ruicard. Built on the side of the rock, the medieval buildings, private mansions, and 15th century half-timbered house reveal the architectural diversity in the village. Below, you’ll find the old port with its historic buildings. End your day on the rocky headland at sunset to enjoy an exceptional view of the Vilaine and surrounding area.
