Château de La Rongere

The 11th-century Chateau de La Rongere is found in the countryside bordering Normandy and Brittany, 5 minutes drive from the village of La Croixille and just 15 minutes from the medieval town of Vitre.  The chateau sits in 23 acres of groomed gardens, an orchard, woodlands, a stream, an organic vegetable garden and a roserie.  There is a heated salt-water pool (10m x 4m) which is 100 metres from the house surrounded by a stone wall to ensure children’s safety.

As well as the Chateau there is a cottage which has its own large private garden and lawned area.  Cottage guests share the swimming pool with chateau guests.

The Chateau or Cottage or both (depending on size of party) offer an amazing venue for many private or corporate events:

Family parties such as anniversaries, family reunions, family dinners, birthday parties, golden weddings, etc

Corporate events such as dinners, retreats, workshops
