The Castle of La Bretesche
Exceptional apartment in the Castle of La Bretesche
Built in the 14th century and restored after the french revolution in a neo-gothic style, the Château de la Bretesche is classed as a historical monument. You can stay with your family, at the top of the Marquis tower for a week!
The castle is located in a privileged environment near the natural park of La Brière (the second largest forestry field in France), alongside a lake, a 18 hole Golf (considered as one of the most beautiful in France according to Golf Stars) and a high level complex featuring a gastronomic restaurant, large Pool and Spa.
Inside the Castle, at the top of a large tower named the Tour du Marquis, the 125 m² apartment which has recently renovated, offers a panoramic view with 5 medieval windows. You access the tower using a circular staircase leading to the flat adorned with coats of arms of the Montaigu family.
From the apartment, you overlook most of the lake, the 9 hole of the Golf and also different parts of the castle (including the Petite Bretesche). Restored in the respect of its history, the flat offers different spaces with noble furniture: massive parquet floors, stone walls and exposed beams.
The contemporary decoration, colored and extensive, includes stylishly designed and comfortable furniture. Some works of art (painting, sculpture) are also presented in the rooms. The convergence of noble art of living and modern touches can be found in the general aesthetic, with different objects or the selection of books and movies.
On the ground floor, spacious living rooms offer a high level of comfort: fully equipped kitchen, office room, lounge opening on to a library. On the first floor, 2 cosy bedrooms allow visitors to admire the old tower’s wooden framework. For each floor, a bathroom and shower is available.
