Overview of Chateau Lignol

What Oliver loves…

  • This is a fun and colourful 14th century hunting lodge with a quirky yet cosy interior.
  • Surrounded by farmland, this is a great place to relax and escape.
  • The gorgeous garden with a trampoline, the lovely heated pool and plenty of indoor games mean the property is just perfect for unforgettable family getaways!

What you should know…

  • The shabby-chic interior would suit a party that loves something different.
  • Due to the rural location, a car is a must.

Chateau Lignol is a 14th century hunting lodge - a miniature castle in the middle of the Brittany countryside.

A slice of French charm without overwhelming acreage, Chateau Lignol is tucked away behind Breton farmland. A long track opens up onto a vista of the famous tower which can be glimpsed through the trees. A stay at Chateau Lignol is the perfect opportunity to explore and immerse yourself in the peaceful and beautiful local area. Surrounded by farmland, this is truly rural France at its best.

Built in 1251, it was used as a hunting lodge for the Princes of Rohan from 1384 when they wanted a bolthole from the hustle of nearby Guémené sur Scorff. It is five minutes by road to a compact busy village that boasts three boulangeries, a cinema and a weekly market, as well as an active cultural life.

The chateau is a reflection of the owner's eclectic and antique style. The airy spaces of the salons and the kitchen show off the candles, fabrics and salvaged stage pieces that shine in the restored rooms.

Good news! This property is available as a Vill’otel

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.

Chateau Lignol Reviews


  • Amazing Week!

    Posted by Marie D on 15/08/2017

    We spent an amazing week at Chateau Lignol. We chose the Chateau as it looks beautiful but I will be honest the pictures do not do it justice as once you are there it looks even more amazing. The garden was great to entertain children of all ages, with the fenced swimming pool and the trampoline which were used and abused on a daily basis by our children. I loved relaxing in the bath and chilling by the the pool with a nice glass of wine. It was also so quiet with only the landlord (ever so discreet and still always there to assist should you need anything) and a farmer as neighbors that you can truly enjoy the serene surrounding. Yet it is only one hour from Concarneau and its lovely beaches to which we went on two occasions. We also used the service proposed for a cook, Sharon, whom we highly recommend (especially her beef stroganoff which is out of this world!) who preempted all our needs and who prepared all our breakfasts, beautifully laid out, few meals and a party buffet which we had with some friends at the Chateau. Everything looked amazing and tasted great as well! It will remain a beautiful memory of a true holiday where everyone truly relaxed and enjoy themselves! Thanks for this amazing location and property!

  • We will be back

    Posted by Niegel S. on 26/06/2017

    We love it and would like to book again for next year!

  • Magical Chateau

    Posted by Jane S on 28/09/2016

    There is something quite magical about Chateau Lignol, it envelops you and each day you relax a little more as you open the shutters onto green space and fields. You really are in your own little private heaven. Its a 14th Century hunting lodge with all the quirkiness of an older building that you just don't get with new properties.

    We were a party of 8 with 4 young children and enjoyed being able to unwind in the old chateau and the grounds. The children loved the lawned area for playing games and taking off their next superhero adventure.

    We were sorry to leave the property and look back on it with fond memories.

  • Beautiful and Charming place to Stay

    Created on 15/06/2015

    Wonderful service from the owner Linda who does everything possible to make your stay enjoyable. This beautiful rural chateau is steeped in history and has a very eclectic decor in a shabby-chic style which would suit a group of friends or family that love something a bit different.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
Since September 2002

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The tower that was straight out of a fairy tale, an absolute Rapunzel haunt,
it was exactly what we were looking for in a home: a beautiful, large house that we could fall in love with: then the impressive gates and the woodlands.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?

Many; it was recorded as being here since the 1250's, the Prince of Rohan stayed here – Jean 1st who passed it to his son, Charles, although we do not have a record if either of them was Charming, it is a touch of royalty to the house; Bothwere related to Duchesse Anne de Bretagne, they used it as a hunting lodge. The ancient motte to the side is called The Fairy Mound by the locals and has been romanced as a fairy portal for decades.
During the Second World War it was used as a refuge for the children from Lorient, who had been made homeless by the attack on the submarine base.
Many years later, an old man turned up at our door and was reminiscing about his marvellous adventures in the countryside, escaping from the terrors of Lorient to the safety of Cravial.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?

During July and August Guemene is especially busy with the fete d'Adouille – a local sausage – and a huge open air brocante – second hand fair – and every second year three is a street carnaval with massive floats.

Really eat?
Crepes and galettes – there is a distinct difference and you need to taste both!

Really see?
The restored Castle and Royal Baths in Guemene sur Scorff, the original home of the Princes of Rohan, now opened to explore and climb the battlements and see the thermal baths used by the Queen of Rohan. Also, in Pontivy, the main chateau for the canton.

What insider tip would you pass on about the property or area?
Pack your walking boots: the countryside around here is riddled with well-marked, winding paths through valleys, beside rivers and into woodlands.
In the evening, the crows coming in to roost are best watched with a glass of wine as it marks the end of the day in Cravial.
