The Brittany region
South Brittany has a sunnier and warmer climate than the north coast, with exceptionally mild winters allowing exotic plants such as mimosa and palm trees to flourish. Any holidaymaker in this area will feel the sense of tradition and pride that the Bretons have for their region. Most towns and villages have local fairs with traditional music and dancing, and of course the local cuisine. Brittany is very rural, with a huge coast line so dishes are mainly based on sea-food, game and fresh vegetables, with puddingsand pastries such as the famous "Farr Breton" and pancakes playing a major part in the Breton diet.
Rich in history, there are numerous castles to visit such as the Chateau of Josselin, Suscinio, Plessis-Josso, and Branfere (home of a nature and wild-life park full of discoveries for children). The area offers a variety of water activities, hire a motor boat or join a cruise on the river Villaine, discover the marsh area of the Briere by Canoe, or take a boat trip to one of the islands in the gulf of the Morbihan
Saint-Just is a listed natural site famous for its flora and fauna and boasts the second most important megalithic site in France. The "Maison de Megaliths" offers infomation on the site and proposes walking trails. In the summer, moonlight tours, musical and story-telling events, prehistoric and nature workshops are organised. Saint-Just is also a site for rock climbing, and nearby, Canoes and Kayaks can be hired proposing excursions from 1 hour or the day.
Redon the nearest town and all the nearby villages hold weekly markets and restaurants range from being gastronomic to family-friendly farm auberges and creperies.

"Birthday Celebration of a lifetime"
What can I say! We have just spent a wonderful week-end at The Lodge, Château du Val to celebrate my husbands 70th Birthday.
Our family all came over from England,and we needed a special place for all of us to stay.
The Lodge fitted the bill brilliantly, with flexible accommodation to suite all needs.
A really friendly welcome from Judith and Chris to help us all settle in. Nothing was too much touble for them to make our stay perfect.
The celebration meal arranged for the Saturday evening was the icing on the cake.
By special arrangement with the owners we were able to have the meal served in the dining room of the Château, after first having an 'apéritif' in the music room.
The whole experience was exceptional, and one not to be forgotten.
Thank you both, Joss and Jas for letting me and my family share your fabulous property here for our special celebration.

"An amazing place looked after by wonderful people"
The Lodge, Chateau du Val is one of Brittany's treasures. A beautiful old lodge set in the stunning grounds of a Chateau. On arrival you are greeted by a charming English lady, Judith for whom nothing is too much trouble and knows the area inside out. She is a real gem! The scope of accommodation is brilliant with all needs catered for, and with such a large group there is no falling over each other. Our children love the large enclosed garden, the pool and woodland walks. The adults love the chilled out atmosphere!
The area surround Redon is rich in history and the lovely Branfere zoo is great for all ages, adults and chidlren alike. The beach is a 30 minute drive away and sheltered coves contain rock pools and sandy beaches and the enchanted forests around the area are alive with Bretton history of the Arthurian Legends.
We are repeat guests and will definately be staying again! Thank you again for such wonderful holiday memories.
