Overview

Wedding Venue Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village Ideal for Parties

For an unforgettable family holiday or fairytale wedding, book Chateau Du Chevalier, a magnificent 15th century castle in Brittany.

Beautifully located on a ridge overlooking a charming pastoral landscape, the estate comprises a stunning main chateau and three annex buildings dating back to the 19th century and fully restored in 2000.

The estate comprises a stunning main chateau sleeping up to 15 lucky holidaymakers and three annex buildings, able to sleep a further 20 guests.

The 54 acres of grounds with spectacular views include 3 ponds, a heated outdoor swimming pool and a charming chapel. Enjoy outdoor pursuits like fishing and hunting, schedule a wine tasting, play table football in the games room and explore the region’s historical sites.

The chateau’s dining room features an original fireplace, and the drawing rooms, lounges, library and bedrooms have wooden panelling and paintings from 18th century.

The Big Maison (8 guests) sits just 100m from the chateau and has direct access to the pool and the kitchen garden. The Little Maison (4 guests) enjoys a superb view over the old castle park and the chapel and is just 25m from the pool. With two and  four welcoming bedrooms respectively, both houses are particularly recommended for couples or families.

All buildings have high ceilings, massive oak beams, original fireplaces, grand windows, inspiring country-style kitchens, extravagant drawing rooms and beautiful bathrooms creating a superb living environment.

Furthermore, they all have easy access to the swimming pool and their own outdoor seating areas where you can enjoy relaxing evenings with enchanting views overlooking the park and valley.

Drive to the village of Combourg (4 km) to see an impressive castle and town centre. You’re also 30 km from Rennes’ cultural sites or Dinard’s beaches. History buffs will want to visit the D-day beaches (150 km), and golfers can choose from 10 nearby courses, some just 15 minutes away.

Chateau Duval is 45 km from the Saint Malo port.

Not only is Brittany wonderful in the summer, it is also a great destination in spring when flowers are in full bloom. Likewise, autumn is the perfect season to gather around the fireplace and spend cozy afternoons in, not to mention December, which will take your breath away as the characteristic French morning mist settles like a lake in the valley, creating a spectacular scenery.

Please note that whilst the main chateau can be rented independently (15 guests rates), the annex buildings are only available as an addition to the main castle (35 guests rate).

Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill’otel

Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

What can be arranged?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the 'Extras' tab for all the details.

Chateau Du Chevalier is 45 km from the port of Saint Malo. 45km from the Rennes Airport and 45 km from Dinard Airport

The nearest port is St Malo with its characteristic town wall. All the ferries that go to the Channel Islands leave from here. Nearby lies the coastal town of Cancale, where shellfish connoisseurs meet from all over the world, to visit the oyster farms and savour the fruits of the sea at one of the picturesque restaurants.

Other sights worth seeing include the abbey and former pirate nest Mont St Michel, as well as the villages of Vitre and Dinan - with their ancient city centres dating from the 12th century. In addition to good food, fascinating culture and beautiful beaches, there are seven different golf courses nearby. Some of these courses are placed around fantastic castles while others like Golf de Dinard is a seaside/links course with breathtaking view over the sea.

Region

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.

Reviews

  • Best described as something from a movie......

    Posted by Anonymous User on 11/06/2012

    We have just returned from our wedding which we held at Chateau Duval. I am struggling to find words to describe how beautiful it was, the Chateau and grounds are best described as something from a movie and the owners Marie & Roland could not do enough to ensure our day and entire stay was as smooth and memorable as possible. It was a special day and a memory that will stay with us forever.

  • Superb stay!

    Posted by Claes and Ingrid on 16/07/2010

    Thank you for the, all together, superb stay! Just as our guests, we were virtually enthralled with the castle and the Gate and Parkhouses' atmosphere and surroundings. We were in luck with the weather, and the service as well as the food etc. worked perfectly. And therefore, all the credit to all your assistants.

  • Words can't describe how delightfully beautiful it was

    Posted by Cathrin and Fredrik on 16/07/2010

    Just want to thank you for the incredible vacation we had at the castle down in France last week. Words can't describe how delightfully beautiful it was. Nice atmosphere and great people. All our guest thought it was their best vacation ever and, that said, most of them have traveled all over the world. The wedding worked perfectly, and everyone involved were just great. The chef's food was heavenly. Gwen sang wonderfully and his dj music was awesome. Everything was just perfect.

  • Memories will remain forever

    Posted by Kerstin and Roland Lindell on 16/07/2010

    The days we spent at your castle will remain in our memories for ever. We are the parents of the groom Brn Lindell, and I, as his mother, would like to show my gratitude to you. From the first moment we felt right at home at your castle and we experienced a wonderful week in France.

  • We had a fantastic week in France

    Posted by Hege and Gunnar on 16/07/2010

    We had a fantastic week in France. The wedding is a memory for life, and everything was incredibly elegant. Flower arrangements, the bride's bouquet, the horse and carriage tour, the sea-food buffet, the hair-dresser and DJ, EVERYTHING was fantastic!

  • Everything was wonderful

    Posted by Barbro and Jan-Ketil on 16/07/2010

    Now we have returned home from two FANTASTIC weeks in France. Everything was wonderful! Thanks a million for all the assistance with our wedding. It was everything that we expected and much, much more! All our guests felt that they were visiting adventure!

  • Our honeymoon

    Posted by Christine Ole Christian on 16/07/2010

    Christine and I have just returned from our honeymoon and having digested our experience at the chateau last week we would like to provide you with our feedback. To avoid all the flattering getting lost in translation I am writing this in English. The headline and conclusion is that we are extremely happy and we both feel that we had a fairytale wedding that far exceeded our wildest dreams and expectations. We also get very consistent feedback from all our guests that the atmosphere you have been able to create is really unique and gave everyone a pleasant break from real life. My mum even refers to it as a Garden of Eden experience and several guests have also said that they will definitely come back on a later occasion. As you can imagine you got a lot of ambassadors from this wedding and I will encourage you to refer to us if any potential customers ask for reference. We will definitely convince them! And if you want to quote any of this in your marketing material you are of course more than welcome to. A heartfelt thank you from both of us for a fantastic wedding arrangement! We will definitely be back! Best regards.
