The estate is situated in two communes on either side of the river Vilaine, a beautiful estuary, whose level is maintained by the Arzal dam. On the west side are the Chteau, built on the hilltop with a superb view, and its outbuildings, farm and woods : to the east are other rented farms and woodland mostly subject to a life interest. The village, south of the estate, is 22 km from the nearest town and 92 kms from RENNES to the North East.
A country lane leads from the village to the property, passing between its fields and orchards, then there is a gateway between stone walls leading to the park where a winding drive leads to the chteau, passing in front of the guest house and the outbuildings. The Chteau, built in granite with slate roofs, is undergoing restoration: only the interior remains to be completed. Stone dormer windows, some Gothic, others Renaissance, a central lantern on the roof ridge and a lower wing to one side give it a characteristic silhouette.
