Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends.
Chateau du Val, Saint Just, Brittany, France, sleeps 35 in 16 bedrooms.

Sleeps 17 to 39 in the chateau and lodge

The Chateau sleeps 22
The Lodge sleeps 17

The 2 properties are available individually, or together for larger groups. Please note that the 2 properties are not let to different groups at the same time, so whether you take one or both you will have sole use of the park and all facilities on site. Chateau du Val provides a unique and magnificent venue for celebrations and weddings, with space for a marquee in the grounds.

The chateau is neogothic, refurbished but with many original features retained, and offers 10 bedrooms, large elegant salons and panelled dining room.

The Lodge is a very spacious converted carriage house in the grounds of the chateau, full of character but with all luxuries associated with modern living. The large open plan living area combines a fully equipped kitchen. The dining room leads out to a private walled garden, games area and barbecue.

Château du Val boasts a private forest (300 acres), lake, and within the gardens a private swimming pool that can be covered (open April-November), and tennis court.

Although both the chateau and the Lodge are fully equipped for self catering, catering can be organised on request. There is a housekeeper on site to assist as much as required.

There is plenty of space inside and out making Chateau du Val ideal for families holidaying together, reunions and groups who want to enjoy activities such as golf, walking and painting. Tailor-made shooting breaks are organised in season, we can also organise canoeing, rock climbing, donkey rides and guided walks, clay pigeon shoot, wine tasting and cookery classes.

Chateau du Val benefits from the sunnier warmer climate of south Brittany and the exceptionally mild winters allow mimosa and palm trees to flourish. The area is renowned for its flora and fauna and Saint Just is the home of the second largest megalithic site in France. Nearby activities include golfing, horse riding, canoeing and kayaking. In close proximity are a number of pretty villages and castles to visit. The beaches of Damgan and Penetin are famous for sea food and great for families and La Baule offers a more lively atmosphere.
