Overlooking a shimmering lake, this turreted 15th-century castle looks like it could have stepped straight out of Disneyland. Jousting knights have been replaced by golfers in the grounds, where you’ll find one of the world’s most beautiful golf courses. If you find yourself leaving the grounds, head to Marais de Briere, with its thatched villages, canals and abundance of wildlife, or visit Guérande , known for its salt marshes – a huge conservation area that covers 2,000 hectares - about a half hour's drive away. The seaside towns of La Baule, Vannes and Presqu’île du Morbihan are all under an hour's drive, too, should you with to venture further out.
