About Château du Tertre

Explore Normandy, Brittany and the Loire with your Boys’ or Girls’ Brigade group and enjoy a friendly welcome at our residential centre, Château du Tertre.

We have acres of space within the grounds where you and your group can take advantage of the many adventure activities on offer. Whether it’s abseiling, fencing, raft building or trapeze, all our activities are great for building confidence, teamwork and motivation in young people.

We have many facilities for you to use too, including a sports hall, games areas and a large screen for films. Why not try out a game of boules or an energetic volleyball match?

There are many places of interest in the vicinity for you to visit on an excursion, including Mont St Michel, Fougères Castle or a traditional crêperie.

Our cosy accommodation offers comfort and relaxation after an active day.
