The Lodge located in the private estate of Chateau du Val, is a 6 bedroomed character property with beams and fire places but offers all for modern living.

The Lodge while having the use of all the facilities on the estate , heated covered pool, tennis court, forest, lake also has its own private walled garden with garden furniture and BBQ. The garden is very large with plenty of space for ball games etc.

We do rent out the Chateau for groups or courses but not at the same time as the Lodge, unless with permission from the guests of the Lodge.

The facilities are therefore only shared with us if we are staying at the Chateau on holiday.

Stunning Venue for our Wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to hold our wedding at the Chateau du Val having previously hired the Chateau for my mother-in-law's birthday the year before. The Chateau itself is very beautiful and has extensive grounds, a swimming pool and enough rooms to sleep over 30 people which proved very handy with all of my family coming from England. We were married on the lawn in front of the Chateau which made a stunning location and looks fantastic in all the photos!

It's also worth noting that we had a lot of very useful help from Jocelyn who owns the Chateau and is a native English speaker. My wife and I both live in London so it was difficult for us to plan various elements of the wedding so Jocelyn was a great help in finding the various people we needed (DJ, Celebrant, Florist, etc...) and in sorting a lot of the smaller details. Jocelyn and her staff were also on hand for the Big Day to make sure that everything went to plan.

I don't think I could speak more highly of the venue and only wish I could have my wedding all over again!

Perfect place for our 5oth Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

10 adults and five children had an absolutely wonderful week at the Lodge at the end of May 2014.

Very comfortable and well equipped.

Great welcome, attention to detail, facilities for all ages and a beautiful setting. Plenty to do and visit around and about.

The owners have really made this place somewhere to come back to - we loved it.

ideal place to stay, for friends or family groups

  • 5 of 5

We travelled as a large family group age range 27 to 92. If as we were, you are lucky with the weather, there is no need to leave the chateau grounds. The lodge is well equipped, large, and with enough bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone to have their own space. The lodge garden is very large and enclosed so ideal if you have young children. The pool is beautiful and immaculate, maintained daily, with plenty of umbrellas and sunbeds, also enclosed with a locked gate so again safe for kids. The grounds of the chateau are also beautiful, lots of marked walks and a lake. Tennis court, again perfect, rackets were available in the lodge, also table tennis bats. Communication with the owner was easy by email, Judith and her husband who look after the lodge and met us on arrival, could not have been more helpful, and can provide any information that you may need. Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor, so ideal for those with mobility problems, we were kindly supplied with a heater for one of our elderly relatives, to keep her room as warm as she likes! Internet was available via external router from the chateau, if you find it is not working, try pressing the reset button on the external router, we did this on arrival and had no further problem with connection. Lots to see and visit locally, we did not do as much as we had planed, as we were happy relaxing in the sun. If you need television in the evening it may be an idea to take a few dvds, but by the time youve swum, played tennis and finished the barbque in the garden, like us, you may just be ready for bed. We hope to return and depending on the weather, visit a bit more of the area. Thanks Judith for all your help and to your husband for his lovely veg.

A brilliant place!!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic place! The Lodge is exactly as described & vary spacious. On arrival Judith welcomed us and explained where everything was and how to use it. There was also a detailed folder full of local info. The master bedroom which housed my son & wife & 2 babies also had 2 single beds, an en-suite bathroom and you could have still had a party in there. Four of the bedrooms had en-suites and the other 2 had a shared bathroom but all the rooms had ample space & storage.The living area was big too and the dining table plenty big enough for the 12 of us. There was plenty of crockery,glasses,cutlery & cooking utensils so it was easy for us to cook in. A couplle of minor problems were dealt with immediately & efficiently which is very important. Sadly the weather wasn't great so we couldn't use the barbeque. The back garden was enormous with plenty of seating and the pool was nice too as was the tennis court but we only got to use them once. Everything that you could possibly need is supplied in the Lodge including iron & board, hair dryer and beach & Pool towels to save on your packing.It was a special anniversary for us and Judith arranged for her son to come in and cook a special meal. The owner of the chateau kindly invited us over for pre dinner drinks at the Chateau which was fabulous. What a beautiful place! She showed us around and made us feel very special. We then had a great meal cooked by Blue & his wife and helped by Judith & her husband making it feel a real family affair. We had a day out at the beach - Damgan - which was about an hours drive but there are plenty of nearer towns and villages to explore. Any walkers would love this area too. Everywhere we went in Brittany we were made to feel welcome. Ten adults & 2 babies for lunch is not easy to accomodate but every restaurant we stopped at they went out of their way to help us. This would make a fantastic venue for any large party and I strongly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Dear Rosemary, thank you very much for the review, we loved having you and your family to stay, its such a pleasure for us when guests chose the Lodge to get together with family or friends and especially when there is a special occasion to celebrate. We hope to see you back again, it was a shame the weather wasn't so good at the end of the week. Its now picked up and we are enjoying mediteranean sunshine.

70th Birthday Celebration week-end at The Lodge

  • 5 of 5

Perfect setting and accommodation for my husbands 70th birthday.

The Lodge is very spacious; clean and well equipped to accommodate large or small groups. Set in lovely surroundings, it was perfect.

There was a warm welcome from Judith and Chris on arrival, and they were on hand during the stay for help and info etc.

Our Celebration Meal on the Saturday evening was made all the more special with prior arrangement with the owners to be served in the dining room of the Château. What an experience, it far exceeded all my expectarions.

I can't praise the accommodation or the service enough, and would highly recommend it to anyone.

An idyllic place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time, even the weather was nice except for three of the fourteen days. Judith, Chris and the rest of the crew were

delightful, friendly and helpful. We were very pleased with the tennis

court and the swimming pool and the park around the chateau is magnificent. There was no internet, which was mostly blessing in disguise, although occasionally we missed it. It is a beautiful place to bike, but we recommend you bring your own bike because rental was disappointing. There are lots of things to see within driving distance. We recommend La Gacily, Vannes, Mt Saint Michel, St. Malo and the Southern coast.

The place inspired the two teenagers in our party to write a movie using the fabulous grounds as its setting. (You can see movie and the place if you google: youtube gruffor bedtime story).

Overall, we had an excellent experience including the baker who delivered great croissants in the mornings. We have been doing this kind of self-catering holiday making for several years now and this one ranked high on our list.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and what a great film you made. Regarding Internet, France Telecom has finally got round to connecting our village. They promise it will be done in 3 days time. For the bikes, we are looking at alternative rental shops. all the best Jocelyn Saini Chateau du Val

Chateau du Val and Lodge are situated in the heart of South Brittany countryside offering a warmer and sunnier climate than the North coast. The properties are located in the beautiful park of the estate du Val, which boasts a private forest and lake. The large properties of the Chateau and Lodge with peaceful grounds are great for relaxing with friends or family or organising a special celebration:.The pool,(which can be covered in mid-season ) is open from April until November, tennis court, walks and bike traills allows for plenty of acivities on-site.

The quiet roads also means that site seeing , beaches and markets are also easy to get to.

We can also organise canoeing-kayak, rock climbing, clay pidgeon shoots on site whereas nearby activities include horse riding ,golf, boating on the rivers , spa facilities.

In close proximity there are a number of picturesque villages such as La Gacilly, (gardens, museum) Rochefort en Terre with traditional craft shops and the harbour town of Roche Bernard. Rich in history there are numerous castles to visit such as Chateau Josslin, Plessi-Josso, Suscino. As well as the renowned UNESCO site Mont Saint-Michel

The coast offers the family beaches of Penetin or Damgan or the more lively option of La Baule with its famous sea-food restaurants. A visit to the salt mines, a trip through the marsh area of the Briere or a boat trip to one of the Islands in the Morbian makes an enjoyable day out.

An ideal location for families, friends also for that special celebration: We are thrilled to have our guests celebrate, birthdays, anniversaries or weddings.Candlelit dinners in the Chateau or organising a wedding reception using the Chateau and Lodge are all possible.Please dont hesitate to contact us with any request. For further infomation see the web site: www.chateauval.com

Golf: An ideal location for golfers with the renowned golf club 'Golf de la Bretesche' within easy reach, (www.golf-bretesche.com ), the golf courses of La Baule and two 9 hole courses at Caden and Ploermel for a shorter day.

We are only to pleased to help with booking t-times and help you organise a golfing program.

During the season we enjoy welcoming shooting parties for a convivial few days together. Please see web site for further infomation: www.chateauval.com
