Chateau du Deffay an Ancient Family Castle in Brittany

In Brittany there  is a wonderful and authentic "Château" which is surprisingly an affordable Bed & Breakfast owned for long time by the same ancient family. Its name is "Châuteau du Deffay" and is located in the beautiful "Brière Regional Natural Park" in the north west of France. We have visited it in May 2019 and we assigned it a 20/20 score for the beautiful room. They serve a very healthy and home made French breakfast in their ancient dining room. Also the place is run by husband and wife who are exquisite hosts. We strongly recommend it.

Ideally positionned between Nantes and La Baule, between beaches and countryside, the castle of Deffay is located in the middle of a rommantic landscape of wood and ponds. Deffay is a important seignorial filled since the 15th century, and the current castle « neo renaissance » is habited since five generations by the family, evokes the rich history of the place, in particular the Vendeen epope of the Duchess of Berry in 1832. The large luxury rooms with old furniture, staircase with double flight, spacious bedrooms and comfortable are the living environment of the young couple, which lives and gives a new life to this place where they will accomodate you as a friend.

Near the Castle you can visit the little fairy village of "Breca" and have a water trip right there. Also you can taste regional gourmet specialties in the local restaurants. We also recommend to visit the town of Guerande with its quaint streets and buy the best salt in the world. Do not skip the fantastic coast of Brittany were there are lots of good surprise waiting for you.
