Description

La Château de la Ville Voisin

The château, with the longère, is set within 30 acres of private grounds. An exceptional rural position with 360° uninterrupted countryside views. 5 minutes from the local village of Augan with its shops, bar and sports facilities. 10 minutes from the auto route and equidistant between the main towns of Vannes and Rennes.

An ideal venue for a special event or celebration with facilities available to set up a marquee in the grounds and extra accommodationavailable in the near by longère. The 2 properties share the swimming pool and grounds but have completely different outlooks and are private.


About the property

FR9656

Situated in a quiet, private, rural location with 360° uninterrupted panoramic views of undulating countryside punctuated only by the changing colours of the surrounding woodland. It provides unique 4* accommodation combining luxury modern home comforts with character period features. Our guests can relax and enjoy the 30 acres of gardens and woodland walks or take a dip in the outdoor heated swimming pool.

The château provides a special environment to celebrate and impress, for family, friends or business. It is available as a gîte, or for special events such as weddings and seminars. With the addition of a marquee it is possible to accommodate extra numbers up to 120 (discreet parking area incorporated). Otherwise more intermit numbers between 15- 30 people can be catered for within the chateau. With the adjacent longère the 2 properties can sleep up to 30 people. Meals can be prepared on site by us using fresh local seasonal produce.

This property along with its longère offer a number of options and possibilities - please feel able to contact us to help us with your needs.

Explore the local culture and history, take part in the many outdoor activities or just relax and absorb the unspoilt countryside. We are easy to reach by plane ferry or car, situated mid way between Rennes and Vannes. Just 10 minutes from the N24.

About Liz Wright

We are a family business that moved to Brittany in 2008. We ran a 4 star holiday cottage and B&B business near Loch Ness Scottish Highlands for 14 years. We were lucky to find an exceptional location in France with beautiful buildings full of character to renovate. We wanted to create a special and private place for family and friends to stay, enjoy each others company, perhaps celebrate a special occassion, without infringing on each others privacy. We have tried to achieve this by providing comfortable and spacious reception rooms & ensuite bedrooms. With the longère already running successfully, we hope with the completion of the joining château, the 2 can be run together to accommodate up to 30 people, with the possibility of hiring a fully serviced marquee in the gardens.

Liz Wright purchased this chateau / country house in 2008

Why Liz Wright chose Morbihan

We are priviledged to live in a beautiful rural location with spectacular uninterrupted views of rolling countryside punctuated by the changing seasonal colours of the mixed woodland. Despite La Ville Voisin's unique and tranquil position it is just 4 minutes from the village of Augan, 15 minutes from the town of Ploermel and just 10 mins from the N24 linking us to Rennes and Vannes. La Ville Voisin has its' own historical chateau, a large garden and heated swimming pool, woodland with walkways and specimen trees and now with its' modern day 'makeover' it offers all the comforts of home, all it requires to be the perfect location is good company and perhaps a good bottle of wine too! All needs for history, culture and outdoor activities can be explored and found locally.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Despite being able to offer the grounds and many of the facilities you would wish to have during your stay there are many additional activities that you can take part in close by. 1km towards Augan is the Rosaires, a stocked fishing lake, we are only a 'stones throw' away from the 'Voie Vert', a disused railway line now renovated specifically for non motorised use, i.e walkers, bikes and horses. At Ploermel we have lac au duc with the hortensia walk and the opportunity to fish, sail, canoe, water ski and play golf. We hope with the completion of the renovations of the chateau, that as well as B&B in the longere we will be able to extend our hospitality to include a unique venu to host special occassions, such as a family celebration or an important business event, as well as luxury B&B.

Absolutely LOVED it. Yes it deserved the capitals.

  • 5 of 5

The chateau is incredible. We were traveling through on our honeymoon. Only stayed one night but wished we stayed longer. The family that own the chateau are wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. The room was amazing. The breakfast superb. Arriving at the chateau it immediately exceeded expectation and this continued through out our stay. Liz even made us soup that night ! Being autumn / fall made the area look stunning. If you are looking at this place to stay just book it. You will love it.

  • All suites and bedrooms are extremely spacious and airy, most retaining period features such as original parquet floors, panelling, fireplaces, beams etc. All the rooms have exceptional, uninterrupted countryside views. The first floor rooms have lofty ceilings and very large windows to frame the outside countryside and let in the light. The second floor rooms, although up another flight of stairs, are equally rewarded by their panoramic views and individual character features - one with its coombed ceiling, dormer windows and beams and the tower suite with its large double windows to the front and cathedral ceiling to the back. A shared living area with a refreshment area on the second floor saves your legs!
