Featured in The Telegraph ‘The 10 Best Villa Holidays in France for 2017’

Chateau de Choisel, a castle in Brittany just south of Rennes, is a listed historical monument constructed in the 17th and 18th centuries. Relax in a heated pool and Jacuzzi spa on the 20-acre grounds, which also feature landscaped gardens and century-old oak trees around a fishing lake.

The chateau comfortably sleeps up to 11 adults and 2 children in spacious bedrooms, two of which are suites with living rooms that can serve as additional sleeping space. Gather together in two large salons, including a TV room with Satellite TV, and a library and grand dining room. The chateau’s fully equipped kitchen opens up to the terrace, and you can barbecue and dine al fresco or even take a refreshing dip in the heated pool!

You’re close to the village of Poligne, which has a tennis court, and nearby Bain de Bretagne’s weekly market. Visit the picturesque historic centre of Rennes (33 km), as well as its museums and Jardin du Thabor. You’re also only one hour from the châteaux of the Loire, Mont-Saint-Michel and Saint Malo.

Reach Chateau de Choisel via the Rennes (27 km) or Dinard (100 km) airports or the port of Saint Malo (100 km).

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

This home is a part of our Sustainable Collection!

To be part of the collection, homes must meet a minimum of four criteria from our sustainable checklist, or three from the checklist and have a daily carbon footprint of 5kg or lower, based on full occupancy per bedroom. View the full collection here >

On the ground floor there are two large salons (the TV room comes with Satellite TV), a library, a grand dining room and the fully-equipped kitchen that leads out on to the terrace. There are also 2 WCs and a utility area/laundry room (which is also used by the owner on a Saturday).

Upstairs there are 3 double bedrooms and 2 suites (double bedrooms with their own living room). All bedrooms have their own en-suite bathroom (4 with bath, 1 with shower). The bedrooms are very large and the suite living rooms can be used as additional sleeping areas.

Outside the chateau sits in 20 acres of wooded parkland. Fishing for carp and pike is possible in the lake from the bank or in rowing boat provided - no license is needed as it's a private lake. There is a heated pool (size: 10x5m / depth: 1.5m), a Jacuzzi spa for your exclusive use, a private chapel and a BBQ. There is also plenty of outdoor furniture, including sun loungers.

Brittany is famed chiefly for its beaches, and with so much coastline to explore it’s certainly one of the best reasons to visit the region. But there’s more to Brittany than sun, sea and sand, and while a good chunk of our villas and chateaux in Brittany are found next to the coast the ones further inland are just as tempting. Want to get the inside scoop on Brittany before you book? You’ll find our full Brittany travel guide below, full of tips, inspiration and great things to do.

    An amazing place, really beautiful and very friendly and welcoming owners. We loved it! Thank you.

  • Excellent

    Posted by Donna on 02/01/2020

    The Château was spacious and homely and we enjoyed our stay very much The location was rural but close to the main road to the airport or Rennes.

  • Lovely place, lots of character!

    Posted by Hope on 28/09/2019

    The Owner is precious and the Chateau is beautiful...It may need a tiny bit of work here and there but overall, I would love to go stay there again. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an experience in a historic home that has not been destroyed by "restoration" that diminishes the character of the place!

  • Amazing!

    Posted by Richard and Caroline on 04/09/2019
