Tredion Castle built in the 14th century, below a small hill in the heart of Lanvaux forest, appeared at the dawn of its history as a simple manor house used as a meeting place for hunters by the Dukes of Brittany.
Despite its resemblance to a fairy-tale castle, the heathland, forests and heather that surround it, a land of Breton Chouannerie, definitely situates it in the Land of Legends. The mystery of the treasure hidden on the land in the estate by Charles Fouquet somewhere at the foot of an oak tree, so far undiscovered, reminds us that these forests still harbour malicious little beings, the Korrigans, or Breton goblins’, guardians of the treasures of the forests.
They still watch jealously over the treasure of Tredion without revealing the secret of its location…
Other treasures await garden lovers: Rare types of trees, some several hundred years old, classed as “remarkable” by the Department of Morbihan…
There is also an abundance of elaborate bridges, ponds and lakes, animals in the gardens and numerous artists’ sculptures along the route.
All along the way, you will encounter the garden’s exterior sculptures.
