Overview

For an unforgettable holiday with family and friends, book Chateau Duval, a magnificent 15th century castle in Brittany. 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 a grand original fireplace, and the drawing rooms, lounges, library and bedrooms have wooden panelling and paintings from 18th century. However, the fully equipped kitchen has a modern dishwasher and washing machine. Within the estate are 3 other buildings that can be hired independently or in conjunction with the chateau, but each building possesses its own private outdoor seating area.

It’s a short drive to the village of Combourg (4 km), which has an impressive castle and town centre. You’re also only 30 km from the cultural sites of Rennes or Dinard’s beaches. History buffs will want to visit the D-day beaches (150 km). With 10 golf courses nearby (the closest just 15 minutes away), you can work on your swing.

Chateau Duval is 45 km from the port of Saint Malo.

Good news! This property is available 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’s included?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the Extras tab for all the details.

Oliver Approved

What Oliver loves…

  • During the spring and summer, the ponds are interconnected with waterfalls and streams.
  • The heated swimming pool (12mx5m) set in beautiful landscaping is the perfect place to relax in the afternoon.
  • Hunting game-bird is possible at this chateau, and there’s a bird-dog available for your use.

 

 

What you should know…

  • You’ll want to rent a car to make the most out of the region, and make sure to use GPS to find this chateau; Brittany’s roads can be unforgiving!
  • Be sure to keep an eye on kids when they’re near the ponds.

The 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.

  • Best, just the best!

    Posted by Christine & Ole Christian on 26/11/2014

    Christine and I have just returned from our honeymoon and having digested our experience at Chateau Duval 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 at Duval 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!

  • I've enjoyed!!!

    Posted by Joanna on 26/11/2014

    We had the great pleasure to stay at Duval several times. Twice I've ridden there on Islandic horses who stayed in the castles paddocks over night. We've also had a fantastic new years party there which was one I still regard as one of the best I've enjoyed. Marie and Roland made our stay so perfect in every way. I hope many more will be able to enjoy the luxury of staying in a real french castle in the beautiful surroundings of Bretagne.

  • Words can't express how gorgeous this place is

    Posted by ZOJA on 26/11/2014

    Words can't express how gorgeous this place is! We had our wedding there and we rent whole château, Gate House and Grand Park House. Place is like from fairy tale with warm and positive atmosphere. Our trip from Finland started with terrible news from SNCF that all our train connections are cancelled because of the train strike. I got this email the night before our flight to Paris and I went into panic mode. We had a group of 20 people and our flight was leaving in the morning... So I called Marie, one of the Château Duval owners, and she miraculously got us a bus with driver and I was so relieved! The owners Marie and Roland are so warm-hearted and kind. They helped us with everything. The wedding was perfect and catering excellent! I wholeheartedly recommend this place for everyone and we definitely come back someday. :)

  • Wonderful week in France

    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.

  • 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!

  • Everything was just perfect

    Posted by Cathrin and Fredrik on 15/07/2010

    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.

  • We had a fantastic week in France

    Posted by Hege and Gunnar on 15/07/2010

    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!

  • Superb stay!

    Posted by Claes and Ingrid on 12/07/2010

    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.
