CHATEAU DUVAL

Combourg Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Magnificent chateau for rent in Brittany with private swimming pool

With its historical roots in the 1400s, Chateau Duval is an enchanting château situated in the genuine French environment of your dreams. Take your friends and family members on a different king of holiday. Perhaps you desire a wine tasting journey, a golfing break, or simply a wonderful holiday with your loved ones. The 54 acres of grounds include three ponds (that are available for fishing) and a heated outdoor pool.

Over the years we have been visited by guests who enjoy life to its fullest – people seeking a quality retreat, couples in love who are getting married in our charming little chapel, or companies looking for a conference venue beyond the ordinary. All agree that Château Duval offers an incomparable experience.

Interior and Grounds:

This 15th Century Château is beautifully located on a ridge overlooking the pastoral landscape. The charming Château and its surrounding buildings have high ceilings, massive oak beams, original fireplaces, grand windows, inspiring country-style kitchens, extravagant drawing rooms and beautiful bathrooms. All buildings 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.

Chateau – Château du Grand Val is no pompous Versailles castle, but the greater its charm. For instance, the dining hall is equipped with a wonderful fireplace from the 1400s. A vigorous, crackling log fire always accompanies the lobster dinners and hunting parties held during the autumn season. The drawing-room and the library from the 1700s exhibit paintings and wooden panels, and the second floor bedrooms likewise possess their own particular charm – nothing extravagant, but a lot of French atmosphere.

The kitchen is fully equipped and includes dishwasher and washing machine. The dining room has a beautiful fireplace from the 15th century and grand oak furniture with room for 22 people to eat. There is also a library with antique furniture and a drawing room with more antique dining furniture and a grand fireplace. The games room includes a table football table and there is also a downstairs bathroom. On the second floor there are six large bedrooms, all with their own particular charm.

The Grand and Petite Park Houses

The Grand and Petite Park Houses date from the 18th century were fully renovated in 2000. The building is situated just 100 meters from the castle and with direct access to the pool and the kitchen garden. The Park Houses boast a beautiful view over the old castle park and the chapel. Massive ceiling beams, five meters to the ceiling, and terracotta floors create a superb living environment.

Brittany is wonderful in the summer. However, the question is whether it is not even nicer during spring and autumn. Then, it is both comfortable and cozy to gather around a fire even if the temperature hardly ever drops below zero Celsius. If you, for example, come to Grand Val in the beginning of April you will meet the spring. Broom, rhododendron, lilacs, and daffodils are then in full bloom. If you visit us in December, you will enjoy the spectacularly colorful scenery, the high air, and the characteristic French morning mist which settles like a lake in the valley.

Grand Parkhouse ??? With its 140 square meters and six to eight beds, this accommodation is recommended for two families or three to four couples. The house has a large, beautiful kitchen with a dish-washer. The living room has glass sliding-doors facing the park. There are three bedrooms with separate bathrooms on the second floor. It is 25 meters to the pool.

Petit Parkhouse – With its 60 square meters and four beds, this accommodation is recommended for two couples or a family. The ground floor contains the living room and the kitchen which includes a dish-washer. The second floor has two attractively decorated bedrooms with a shared shower. There is a beautiful view of the park and only 25 meters to the pool.

Gate House – This is a beautiful stone-house from the early 1800s with over four meters to the ceiling and wooden floors in massive oak. The renovation is intended for those of you who enjoy and have that special feeling for rustic, country-side Brittany.

The ground floor has an open floor plan including living room, dining room, and kitchen. The rooms are divided by oak pillars and a large, wonderful fireplace. The chimney ascends through an open space all the way to the inside ceiling beams; this gives the entire house a feeling of immense spaciousness. A rustic oak stairway leads up to three lovely bedrooms and a large bathroom with double showers and a separate toilet. The hallway outside of the bedrooms is a balcony with a view of the living room and dining room below.

The Gate House is 140 square meters. It has three double rooms and a large verandah facing south. The house is situated right next to the castle's old kitchen garden which is surrounded by a wall. This is also where the pool is located.

Outside the grounds are made up of 54 acres of private land, three ponds, lovely park area, a private heated pool and plenty of outdoor furniture. Fishing and hunting (pheasants and partridge with pointers) are available at the property and its surrounding area.

Guestbook comments from the manager

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.

Fantastisk upplevelese

  • 5 of 5
I've had the great pleasure to stay at Chateau 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.

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.
