Make discovering France an adventure

Find more to do in France with us.
You can combine exciting adventure activities with an itinerary of stimulating cultural visits – and you can choose the balance of each.
So if you’re looking for a French trip that gives you more, your search is over!

You’ll be based at PGL’s Château du Tertre at the crossroads of Normandy, Brittany and the Loire.

Our Château is everything you could wish for – it has excellent facilities, spacious grounds, homely accommodation and all of this in a peaceful, rural setting. Excursions in the area include typically French experiences such as local markets, as well as famous sites such as Fougères Château and Mont Saint Michel.

The combination of trips with our free on-site adventure activities allows your group to develop, improve in confidence and become more independent.


Your programme of activities typically includes four sessions a day, allowing your group to benefit from a wide variety of activities to complement your chosen excursion itinerary.

You’ll also enjoy the full support of our team – from fully trained, enthusiastic, supportive instructors to Tour Leaders who can accompany your group on excursions and help with all aspects of your organisation.

And in the evenings we lead a full evening programme which we can tailor to meet your requirements. We can include our own special mix of lively entertainment sessions, or can include quiet time, diary keeping - anything you choose.
