Reviews about the Advert 11941
Advert details 11941
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. Beg ar C’hastell challenges the changing nature of the elements; it makes light of the storm and boldly defies the tempest. It calls to mind some architectural features of the“malouine ” houses anchored to their rocks, slender and lofty, magical and solitary. There the view is catching, whatever the colour of the sky and whether the wind is blowing or not. Anchored on its belvedere, swept by the constant play of the waves, it claims its originality thanks to an exceptional site. It spreads out over a 3000-square-kilometre 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 Brittany.
