How to visit

The history of the Domaine de Trévarez has been profoundly influenced by one man, James de Kerjégu. This rich politician, torn between his desire to play an important role at a local level and his aristocratic life amongst the elite of the French capital, decided, over a century ago, to construct a castle equipped with some of the latest technological devices that the period had to offer. The result was not only luxury and modernity. The exhibition highlights the layout of the spaces as they had been originally designed and situates the construction of an undertaking such as Trévarez within the context of the Belle Époque.
NEW IN 2015 >> The exhibition at the château is undergoing a facelift! Since 2010, huge efforts have been made to improve the presentation of the site: more and more spaces are now accessible. In line with these changes, exhibition content will be extended in spring 2015.
