Swimming Pool at Chateau ValChateau 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 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 you’re interested in a holiday in Brittany, then take a look at Chateau du Val.
