A 20th century heritage SITE

This site is a must-see attraction for visitors to the heart of the Finistère department, and has been classed as a 20th Century Heritage Site. The Domaine de Trévarez was constructed at the end of the 19th century by James de Kerjégu and is sure to impress with its ‘belle époque’ castle in pink brick and Kersanton stone.
This unusual construction was equipped with extremely innovative features for the time, such as structural steelwork, elevators, electricity and art nouveau decor…

Bombed during the Second World War, the castle, currently undergoing renovations, may be partially accessed by visitors and hosts a permanent exhibition that retraces the history of the estate and displays some artefacts. The majestic stables, still intact, are as architecturally stunning as the castle itself and regularly host events and temporary exhibitions throughout the year.

Built at the heart of a magnificent forest and floral park of 85 hectares, the estate is renowned for the beauty of its camellia, rhododendron (Collection Nationale label) and hortensia collections and bears the ‘Remarkable Garden’ distinction. Visitors can enjoy strolling amongst seasonal floral displays. Every year, the Domaine de Trévarez invites a contemporary artist to provide a unique perspective of the site, giving rise to artworks especially created for the estate. This invitation is accompanied by a temporary exhibition housed in the former stables.

Bâtir un rêve

Built between 1893 and 1907, the Domaine de Trévarez is the realization of the dream of one man, James de Kerjégu. An ambitious individual with established social and political connections, he entrusted prestigious architects, the Destailleurs, with his project, which he hoped would be the outward expression of his material success.
A man ahead of his time, he had the castle equipped with some of the most innovative technological devices that the late 19th century had to offer…
Various interactive features allow visitors to gain an insight into the modernity of this place and the ‘belle époque’ period during which the castle was built. The public can also learn about the complex personality of the former commissioner of the château, James de Kerjégu.
Although the ‘pink castle of Trévarez’ may be classified as an example of late 19th century neo-Gothic architecture, it boasts technical features that were amongst the most innovative of its time, such as structural steelwork, electricity, hot water central heating system, internal telephone, elevator, goods lift, etc.

Awarded the ‘Patrimoine du 20e siècle’ [20th-Century Heritage Site] distinction in 2004, the Domaine de Trévarez also bears the ‘Remarkable Garden’ distinction (2006) for its parklands planted in 1900, in the ‘mixed style’ that was then characteristic of French gardens. In a rural environment where people still used oil lamps for lighting, the Château de Trévarez and its parklands were the perfect, shining example of luxury, comfort and progress. Heavily damaged during the Second World War, the castle is now only partially open to the public. The stables now host various exhibitions, including those of its artists in residence under its immense glass roof.
