The spirit of the place

In the heart of an unspoilt natural landscape, nestling between the forest and the Odet River, you’ll find the Château de Penfrat, where time seems to move at a different pace.
Patrick welcomes you to this little piece of paradise in Brittany, a charming guest house set between the ‘art and history’ city of Quimper and the beautiful sandy beaches of the Atlantic coast.

This former 19th-century hunting lodge has been renovated and decorated with refined taste  in an art-deco style, now offering elegant bedrooms and suites, each with a stunning view of the Odet River. Here, nature is forever present, and you can enjoy it from the moment you awake. After a generous, healthy breakfast, go and lose yourself in the extensive grounds to make the most of the peace and quiet, reconnecting to life and feeling re-energised. It’s an ideal spot for observing birds and wildlife, too, and the landscape that shifts with every season, every tide.

There’s no theatricality here, you’ll quickly feel at home and this ease will stay with you throughout your stay. So much so that you might find it hard to pull yourself away from Penfrat. Even so, while you’re here, maybe take time to explore the delights of south Finistère, from the cathedral city of Quimper to the cobbled streets of Locronan, coastal Concarneau, artistic Pont-Aven and the beaches and pretty ports of Pays Bigouden.

Tips and secret places of the owners

● From April to June, visit the nearby Domaine de Boutiguery, a family park with a stunning collection of azaleas and rhododendrons.
● Taste the region's best oysters with a fabulous view at Penfoulic.
● Browse the little Monday market in Bénodet, for local produce strawberries, goats' cheese and fresh bread. Pause for a drink on the terrace at 'Antique et en Toque'.
● The most beautiful walk and the most romantic sunset in Brittany: the beach at Pointe de la Torche. And dinner 'Chez Marie-Cath' is a must!


Qu’il est agréable de succomber au charme discret de ce lieu magique et hors du temps. Il y a cette indescriptible sensation de vivre des instants uniques et précieux, ce sentiment délicieux de rencontrer des êtres d’exception qui vous accueillent comme des amis, voire des princes, et vous interpellent dans leur élégante façon d’aborder la vie et les autres. Une magnifique respiration qui vous réconcilie avec l’existence. Merci. Laurent & Chloé

Nous avons séjourné dans ce château authentique, unique et magique pour trois jours de quiétude. Endroit idéal pour se ressourcer. Maison décorée avec objets chinés qui vous transportent à une autre époque, jusqu’à la vaisselle. Nous prévoyons déjà d’y retourner. Raphaël & Oscar

Tripadvisor 19/10/2018

Nous avons passé là un très bon séjour, dans un cadre élégant, calme, raffiné. La demeure est magnifique et l’endroit beau, calme et reposant. Les ballades le long de la rivière, dans les bois accompagnées du chien de la maison, sont très agréables et l’hôte est de bon conseil pour les restaurants. Une très belle adresse. Famille Poirier
