Fodor's Review

Five miles away from Concarneau is the village of Beuzec-Conq, home to the Château de Keriolet. Walt Disney would have loved this fairy-tale, neo-Gothic extravaganza dating from the 19th century. Replete with gargoyles, storybook towers, and Flamboyant Gothic-style windows, this showpiece was constructed by the Comtesse de Chauveau, born Zenaide Narishkine Youssoupov, an imperial Russian princess who was niece to Czar Nicholas II (and related to Prince Youssoupov, famed

assassin of Rasputin). Take one of the four daily guided tours through the Arms Room, folkloric kitchen, and grand salons.
