Château de Montmarin




Montmarin, whose château, park, and gardens are listed as National Monuments, was built in 1760 by Aaron Magon, Squire of the Château du Bosq. It is the only "Malouiniè" (the typical 18th Century summer résidence of rich ship-owners and merchants from Saint-Malo) to be located on th left bank of the Rance, with a magnificent panoramic view across the estuary.

An Imposing classic gateway opens on to the Court of Honor ornemented by a splendid 18th century fountain in white Carrare marble. The restrained classicism of the entrance side of the housse is in striking conytrast with the fanciful Louis XV elegance of the main façade facing the Rance with its pavilions rooped in the shape open upturned.

The 15-acre (6 hestares) park; praised by the writers of the period, Madame de Genlis, and Chateaubriand, slopes gently down to the Rance in a series of terraces. In front of the house, the French formal garden, pratically unchanged since the day it was designed, overlooks the park, laid out in 1885 in the English style, with its historic trees, wide lawns, thickets, rock-garden, ans flowering borders.

Each year, new varieties of plants and trees are added to already considerable collection.
Plants may be purchassed from the Nursery
