Built toward the end of the eighteenth century as a watchtower, Beg ar C’hastell belongs to those legendary “Captains’ houses” erected by old seadogs who, between two voyages, wished to gaze upon the ocean from their personal look-out post. It calls to mind some architectural features of the “malouine ” houses anchored to their rocks, slender and lofty, magical and solitary . Anchored on its belvedere, swept by the constant play of the waves, it claims its originality thanks to an exceptional site. The property of Beg ar C’hastell spreads out over a 3000-square-kilometer stretch of wild moor. For years, it has been a target of many professional photographers and it has naturally become the privilege of the area, the symbol of an unfathomable and mysterious Brittany.In the 50s the architect refined its form and gave back its original solemn and untameable aspect. As it has recently been renovated, the mansion has found back its original character with a neat decoration.
