The book about Grand Val
Two Swedish families were driving around France on holiday in the 1980s. They loved everything the countryside had to offer – food, drink and culture. On one of the trips they suddenly decided to buy a chateau and after years of searching they found Chateau du Grand Val in Brittany. A “bargain” that would fundamentally change their lives.
Here we get to follow their inspirational journey on how with love, inspiration and lot of sheer determination, they turned their dream into reality over 25 years.
Take a walk in the cradle of the French romanticism, “Le berceau du romantisme”.
The forests around Combourg were the author Francois-René de Chateaubriand’s main source of inspiration, the French father of the romanticism.
Quote: “It was in the woods of Combourg that I became what I am, that I began to feel the first assault of that ennui which I have dragged with me through life, of that sadness which has been my torment and my bliss”
Château du Grand Val’s cooperation with SLU Alnarp and Gunnebo Castle allows us to offer all our guests a chance to walk in the footsteps of Chateaubriand.
Take a stroll in our chestnut forest and follow the pathways along our ponds and wells. Wild, beautiful and exciting, just as the French romance wanted us to experience nature. Click to view map or copy map.
