A taste of French finery in this handsome 15th-century château and serene bird-filled parkland. South Brittany's wetlands teem with wildlife

Come for a taste of life with the French country aristocracy – it's getting hard to find; the family have lived here for 13 generations. Gwénaël greets you on arrival and is on hand when needed. The château is tucked into the woods and 100 hectares of parkland with plenty of paths for wandering: serenity is guaranteed. Bedrooms are lived-in but comfortable; Saumon, under the eaves, comes with binoculars for the birds. Start the day with excellent bread, jams and coffee in the wonderful breakfast room. Gwénaël is full of tips and you are in the Brière Regional Park where water and land are inextricably mingled and wildlife abounds.

Guest feedback
"Charming chateau where the owner, a proud Breton, welcomes you personally and can fill you in on as much local history as you care to listen to. Lovely room overlooking the grounds, huge bathroom with gold taps and a very generous breakfast the next morning, when I was amused to find the children had been told to be quiet so the guests could sleep in on a Sunday. They were, bless them!"
