Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
Chateau du Val, and the converted 19th Century hunting lodge, is a great location for short breaks and holidays in Brittany. Tucked away in a secluded corner of the Ille-et-Vilaine department between Rennes and Redon, the Chateau also caters for weddings and other celebrations, as well as offering tailor-made rough shooting breaks.
The chateau has been refurbished, while still respecting the original layout of the rooms, and many of the original features were preserved, such as large open fireplaces, chandeliers, elegant salons, 9 bedrooms, an oak-panelled dining room, etc. There is also a resident house-keeper on site.
The Domaine du Val boasts a 300-acre private forest, a swimming pool (which can be covered when the weather is not so warm), and tennis court, whilst there are plenty of nearby activities to keep families very happy – such as canoeing, climbing, guided walks and clay pigeon shoots, not to mention the lovely Brittany beaches which are less than an hour away. If guests prefer enjoying a quieter activity, why not settle comfortably in the garden furniture on the terrace to read a book or simply enjoy the peace?
