Château du Tertre

for Cubs and Scouts

About Château du Tertre

Situated at the crossroads of Normandy, Brittany and the Loire, our residential centre, Château du Tertre is an ideal base for your Cubs and Scouts on a visit to France.

They can explore the region, its history and culture and also enjoy adventure activities in the extensive centre grounds. Whether they're abseiling, fencing, raft building or flying along the zip wire, all our activities are great for building confidence, teamwork and motivation in young people. You'll receive a warm welcome from our friendly centre team who will ensure you get the most from your stay.

Facilities include a sports hall, boules pitches, games areas and a large screen for films, so there's plenty to keep your group occupied in the evenings along with our supervised evening entertainment programmes.

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

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.
