VARENNES-SUR-LOIRE, Domaine de la Brèche


Selected as this delightful Castels site, created in 1973 by the St Cast family in the verdant grounds of a restored manor house, will immediately impress you with its feeling of spaciousness and the quality of its services. It is particularly recommended for children. You can expect a warm welcome from the charming English speaking proprietor whose attention to detail makes it one of the best sites in the Western Loire. It is very popular with British and Dutch visitors, so not recommended for those seeking a French ambiance. There is a host of useful tourist information in the reception area.
