Visit the gardens

Welcome to the gardens of the Château de Lanniron in Quimper. Situated on the banks of the Odet river, the Lanniron estate was the residence of the Bishops of Quimper for over six centuries.

Transformed into a Palladian residence in the 19th century, the château overlooks the Italian-inspired formal gardens created in the 17th century and terraced down to the Odet. The gardens are also home to a remarkable botanical collection planted in the 19th century by the ancestors of the current owners.

After suffering a great deal, the gardens have now been partially restored. The 20 symmetrical squares, 2 ponds and the garden statuary still need to be restored.

Come and explore this magnificent 45-hectare estate with your family!

In a treasure hunt combining history and adventure, children aged 6 to 12 will uncover the 6 mysteries of the Lanniron gardens in the company of their heroes: Hermine de Kerret, her parrot Kalisto and her brother René, ready to embark on a long journey.

Continue your visit to our mini-farm where chickens, sheep, goats and donkeys thrive.

In the château's former stables, the whole family can rediscover the pleasure of playing traditional wooden games. Precision, dexterity and speed are the order of the day!

Near the large farm, youngsters can have fun on the trampolines and on the inflatable structures: giant soft mountain, climbing tree and maze for countless games of hide-and-seek!

On the way, you'll find a merry-go-round, slides, swings, a turnstile and a zip-line to delight the little ones in our two play areas.

And don't hesitate to use the pedal carts to make quick work of the estate's paths.

Finally, come and discover our Trampôforest adventure course among the treetops of the old oak trees in the Bois de Neptune.
