Manoir du Plessis-Madeuc

Corseul, France

The Manor House of Plessix-Madeuc was built in the 16th century and underwent significant changes up until the 17th century. The building has excellent proportions and the tower, which dominates the southwest side, was traditionally the main living quarters of the lord of the Manor. The main door of the mansion is crowned by a triangular pediment decorated with the arms of the family of the Gaudemont Monforière, owners during the eighteenth century. Originally it belonged to the Madeuc family, one of the oldest names in the region meaning 'benevolent' in Breton. In the courtyard is an original double-sided well decorated with a superb carving.

Berenice and Olivier Dupuy have restored this property with the purpose of accommodating painters and photographers in residence and to open the charming apartments to holiday goers. The large garden with its beautiful rose garden and secluded position allows you to relax in serenity while enjoying the surrounding countryside.

An enchanting property to unwind. If you want to escape everyday life and are looking for a relaxing holiday, then this is the place for you. There is a large garden where you can retreat to read and the rooms are beautifully furnished and exude the magic of days gone by. The owners are very friendly and accommodating and happy to give an insight into the history. Really great! From here you can also drive to neighboring towns, such as Dinan, St. Malo and Dinard. Even Rennes is only about 50 minutes away. Really warmly recommended!

I would highly recommend staying at this Manoir. Idyllic location, extremely quiet, a gorgeous old stone building with a very beautiful, romantic garden (small pond with water lilies!). The apartments (I was allowed to visit all of them) are furnished with taste and love, a perfect harmony of old and new. The hosts, François & Susanna are friendly and helpful. By the way, Susanna is German.

A very pleasant family stay in the family cottage with breakfast. Space, calm, charm and a caring host! Ideally placed to discover Dinan and the Emerald Coast.

We stayed 9 nights with two adults and our two teenagers in the bed and breakfast family suite. The "little castle" with Breton charm is beautiful and pure relaxation. The new owners and the housekeeper are very friendly. The typical breakfast was lovingly prepared. The accommodation is really recommended. Our children were also thrilled because the WiFi worked great.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
