Adventure in Northern France at château du tertre for cubs & scouts

Discover another side to France

You can get even more out of a trip to France with PGL.

You’ll find an adrenalin-filled adventure course as well as an exciting itinerary of cultural excursions when you base yourself at PGL’s Château du Tertre, located at the crossroads of Normandy, Brittany and the Loire.

In its idyllic rural setting, the standard of accommodation at our château is high; our facilities are excellent and off-site excursions available to your group include local markets, as well as famous sights such as Fougères Château and Mont Saint Michel. Combine your trips out with our unique and exciting range of FREE on-site adventure activities to help your groups of cubs or scouts develop and improve their confidence and team building skills.


You’ll receive 4 x 1½ sessions of thrilling adventure activities per day, delivered by our highly trained staff, as well as your chosen itinerary of cultural and historic excursions.

We’ll also provide full staff support to you and your group throughout the day, including a tour leader to accompany you off-site.

Our staff also run a full evening programme tailored to meet your requirements. This may include our own wide range of entertainment, or can include diary writing and/or badge work or other activities of your choice.
