lieu-dit Troguindy, Minihy-Tréguier, 22220
It takes a great deal of "sang Froid"to resist the romance, ambience and the integrity of this 12th and 15th century manor house steeped in history.Nestling in it’s 20 acre grounds, in the curve of the Guindy River, the Manor House at Troguindy has been a family home for at least 800 years. Initially built as a Fortress for a Knight Templar, then the home of generations of Viscounts of Troguindy. Eventually owned by the Duke de Richelieu at the time of the revolution, the house has mellowed into a charming country home, its stout walls still providing solid comfort for all who dwell in it.
Description of Chambres d'hôtes du manoir de Troguindy Bed & Breakfast:The original 12th and 15th century fireplaces, carved granite doorways and leaded light windows, retain an ambiance redolent of the middle ages. The gardens, also, envelope one in the heady scents and colours of medieval times. Roses, lavender, sage thyme, lilies and jasmine all mingle along the pathways that lead eventually, (should you choose to take a stroll), to woodland walks and cut meadows.Guests can enjoy the aperitifs in the medieval salon, meals served in the dining room, sun in the courtyard garden and languid riverside promenades, there is even a fern-clad island in the river and a small trout fishing lake. the medieval town of Treguier is just over a kilometre away and offers excellent restaurants and sightseeing opportunities. Paimpol, Perros Guirec and Lannion are within 20 minutes drive as is La Roche Jagu Castle, the gardens of Kerdalo, Kestillic, Abbey de Beauport, Abbey de Doulas and if these don't capture you interest there are always our sandy cotes d'armor beaches.
Directions to Chambres d'hôtes du manoir de TroguindyExit the square at Treguier from infront of the Cathedral. The square is a one way and will take you out of the top righthand corner of the square. Follow the sign to ‘Lannion/Perros Guirec’. From this point you basically keep straight without turning off this route. You will come to a STOP sign - proceed straight on. After about a 1km the road will start to descend with a tall wall to your right. At the bottom of this descend are two roads to your left (at the cemetary and tumbledown Gatehouse to the right). The road starts to climb and go through a number of small bends. After about 300m the road starts to decend again with a left bend. This is the village of ‘Le Guindy’ At the bottom of the decent the road takes a sharp right over a bridge. Do not turn right over the bridge, but there is a smaller road facing you. Take this road. This single lane road climbs and winds down again to the river. It follows the river and then starts to climb away from the river. As the road curves round to the left, the entrance to our drive is on the right.
