Château de Bogard is a listed building and a member of Demeures Historiques (DH), Vieilles Maisons Françaises (VMF) and Association des Parcs et Jardins de Bretagne (APJB). The château can be visited all year round. Make an appointment via the “visit” or “contact” tab for a personalized guided tour of the château’s gardens and interior. You can also take advantage of the annual European Heritage Days in September.

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

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 also the life of François de la Noüe, a Breton parliamentarian and freemason, and Félicité Meslé de Grandclos, descendant of a Malouin shipowner, who were the creators of this enchanting place, preserved intact and unchanged since the 18th century. The Capelle family, who have owned 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 owners, will be happy to welcome you and tell you all about the history of the place during a private tour. But also Morgane and Aurélie who help with the upkeep of the rooms and gîtes, Sébastien Hervé and Stéphane who help with the upkeep of the gardens and the house, Véronique who manages the Association des Amis du Château de Bogard, Didier who looks after the website, Dorothée and Stéphane who provide support. And all the friends who make occasional contributions and share their good humour… Bogard is also involved with the communes of Quessoy and Hénon, a member of the local shopkeepers’ association and a partner of the Ville Davy agricultural school.

Bogard is first and foremost a prestigious, romantic and comfortable venue for all types of festive and collective events: weddings, but also music concerts, fireworks displays, seminars, exhibitions… It’s 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.
