A landmark for all sailors
A fixed and identifiable maritime landmark at the entrance to the River Vannes known to all sailors and synonymous with the arrival at Port-Anna and Conleau, the Maison Rose located at the end of the Séné peninsula in the Bellevue sector is a true icon of the Gulf of Morbihan. Surrounded by a large wooded park and having a quay and a slipway, this slate-roofed house has the particularity of being painted pink.
A place steeped in history
When built in 1879 for the oyster farmer Mathurin Juteau from Vannes, the Maison Rose was a large two-storey building. In 1903, Mathurin Juteau's daughter and his son-in-law, Emmanuel Normand, became the owners. They built an aqueduct to ensure the flow of rainwater and household water. In 1943, the house was extended with two symmetrical wings. With nineteen openings, nine in the main facade, the Maison Rose now belongs to a real estate company. Its atypical colour, which never goes unnoticed, is registered with the Hydrographic and Oceanic Service of the Navy, which means that although it is not protected as a Historic Monument, its owners cannot consider changing the colour of the sea-side façade.
