Culture is about sharing! With this in mind, you’ve booked a stay at the Lion d’Or, nestled between Mont Saint-Michel, Fougères and Rennes... and that was a great decision! Those three geographical locations alone make for a full itinerary. But that’s not all there is to see, as you’ll soon find out when you explore the surrounding area!
Right from the start you were sure you had hit upon something exceptional in the location of your hotel. After all, what could be better than choosing a hotel midway between Mont Saint-Michel, Rennes and Saint-Malo? It’s the golden triangle – right between Normandy, Brittany and Mayenne. Just a few kilometres from your accommodation, you’ll find yourself on the ramparts of the Corsair city, in the medieval streets of Brittany’s capital or in front of the breathtaking spectacle of Mont Saint-Michel.
A region brimming with castles!
Once you arrive and give it some more thought, you realise that Fougères is nearby – a magnificent medieval town with all its castles. You’ll also discover the castles of La Ballue and Vitré, with its spires reaching for the sky, Bonnefontaine-Antrain and Combourg, where Chateaubriand spent his youth… And you’ll see that the whole region is covered in châteaux! The history is yours to explore!
A region of extraordinary gardens!
But that’s not all. As you pick up your guide and ask our team a few questions, you’ll discover an area of valleys, forests and meadows where unspoilt nature is a sight to behold. So why not combine nature with culture in the parks and gardens? From the Parc Botanique de Haute Bretagne to the Jardin des Renaudies and even the Bourbansais zoo, your itinerary will be all things organic!
