The Details...

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. 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.

The Chateau offers 4 bedrooms, all with en suites with bath tubs, a spacious kitchen dining room and two sitting rooms. The Chateau sits in 4 acres of land and the garden has a trampoline, outdoor eating area and a child-safe pool.The pool is heated and is approximately 10m x 6m. The property does not have a games room per say, however in the Chateau guests will find a Drum Kit, Football, Board Games (Monopoly, Trivial Pursuits, Cluedo, Jigsaw, Cards, Dominos, Chess Set).

The town centre of Geumene sur Scorff 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 nearest beaches are Guidel and Larmor Plage, which are 40 minutes away by car.
