About Château du Tertre
The 19th century Château du Tertre stands in unspoilt countryside at the crossroads of Normandy, Brittany and the Loire. The rich heritage of the area offers outstanding learning possibilities for your primary school group through exposure to French language and French culture.
Your pupils can take in some history with a visit to the Bayeux Tapestry, test their French at a local boulangerie or enjoy a traditional crêpe - it's a cultural adventure to awaken all the senses! Back at Château du Tertre there'll be free adventure activities to add an extra bit of fun!
