The Château de Bogard, built at the end of the 18th century, is an extraordinary testimony to the new philosophical ideas of the Age of Enlightenment on the eve of the French Revolution. This prestigious residence, both historic and modern, is the ideal place in the Côtes d’Armor to organize unforgettable events: weddings, ceremonies, receptions, seminars and long stays.

The Château de Bogard has a long history, beginning in 1274 with the de Bogard family and continuing into the 18th century with the De La Noüe family. Discover the story of Guillaume-François de la Noüe, known as “bras de fer”, who died in Moncontour. Discover the lives of François de la Noüe, a Breton parliamentarian and Freemason, and Félicité Meslé de Grandclos, a descendant of a shipowner from Saint-Malo, who were the creators of this enchanting place, unchanged since the 18th century. The Capelle family, who is owning the site since the 60s, have revived this forgotten past and enhanced it for your enjoyment.

Bogard is a collective adventure: Harald and Baudoin, the two brothers who own the property, will be happy to welcome you and tell you all about the history of the place during a private tour, as well as all the friends who contribute occasionally and share their good humour… The Château de Bogard is also involved with the townships of Quessoy and Hénon, member of the local shopkeepers’ association and partner of the local agricultural school La Ville Davy .

The Château de Bogard is first and foremost a prestigious and romantic place for all types of festive and collective events: weddings, but also music concerts, fireworks displays, seminars, exhibitions… It is also a haven of peace for flora and fauna. 40 hectares of woods, meadows, orchard, flower gardens and a pond are maintained and managed to preserve local biodiversity.
