La Rongere is a beautiful late 18th century chateau with an 11th century tower. It makes a great family summer house with lots of big windows and doors to the large manicured gardens. There is an organic vegetable garden, and a roserie. It has a real rustic, country farm house feel more so than an immaculate French Chateau. The heated pool is 10mx4m and is situated 100 yards away from the house. A stone wall surrounds the pool to ensure the safety of children.

We have just returned after a fabulous week in France. The chateau was lovely and it suited our family immensely, 10 adults 6 children.. We all loved the feel of the place and the freedom that the house and grounds gave us. The children were able to wander and play in and out of the house with great freedom. The ping pong table, pool and sand pit were particularly enjoyed. But saying that so was the trampoline and the swings. We had many a ping pong tournament as well as boules in the drive in the evening, usually played after some g@t’s.
The weather was very good and so all meals were taken outside , many until late at night. One child had a birthday party which included all playing egg and spoon and other such games. Wonderful memories.
Annie and John, the couple who oversee the chateau, were so welcoming and helpful , they are a real boon to the place. They were able to pass onto us a sense of being relaxed about the house and grounds. Annie cooked for us one night and the meal was terrific.
The chateau is very well equipped, the bed linen is of a good quality, good facilities such as dishwasher , washing machine and so on.
It was a magical week staying at La Rongere. So many thanks for your help and would you please pass on my thanks to Bridget Elworthy for such a wonderful place to be able to stay in.
I have already recommended this place to friends.
We had a fantastic week with friends in this large and very comfortable chateau. The children loved the gardens, pool, and well-kept grounds. We adored the ease and convenience of the place. Well- equipped kitchens and with attentive housekeeping on request. Fabulous. Recommended.
La Rongère is the most wonderful, beautiful, perfect place for a family holiday.
If you want all mod-cons, discos and night-life, then it is not the place for you.
BUT if you are looking for peace, exceptional beauty, perfect safety for young children with endless outdoor activities and all in a blissful fairy tale-like and romantic setting then this is for you!
The whole place is beautifully decorated in a smart but unshowy way (no bling here!) The rooms are huge, beds are very comfortable, the linen of very high quality.
Lots of nooks and crannies and hidden rooms to discover and many places to escape to if you want an hour or so alone!
The pool is perfect (no chlorine to sting the eyes) and easily locked to keep small children out. Lots of activities : ping pong, trampoline, boules, badminton, sandpit, cycle rides, and going boating only a short drive away. The grounds are extensive and lend themselves to many games of hide-and-seek, looking for bats and glow-worms at night, listening to the owls and picking the fruit, veg and lots of herbs in the garden.
The kitchen is very well equipped and the washroom a treat to use: even ironing is fun to do overlooking the stunning trees.
Shopping is easy with boulangeries and a supermarket not far - and better shops in Vitré.
I have booked for 4th year running as all the young cousins, their parents and I just love it.
We are staying at La Rongere with family and friends and are blown away by the loveliness of the place.
The photos simply do not do it justice.
It is definitely shabby chic but in a divine, chateau-y kind of way.
The shower in the tower room is one of the best I have ever had.
The gardeners/caretakers living in the cottage are very friendly and kind and are a boon to the place.
I cannot recommend staying here highly enough.
The cottage at La Rongere is a great place to stay, to get away from it all and enjoy a small slice of living in the French countryside.
It is decorated in a "shabby chic", elegant French Provincial style, set in magnificent grounds with formal gardens and surrounding private forest, with the ancient chateau as backdrop. It is really quite charming.
Everything was great, the location is great ans has a lot of charm.
All was made easy for us when we arrived.
We were a large group (20) and all went well.
I , and my 19 friends, highly recommend you to stay at La Rongere.
