The Parc de Branféré opens its castle to businesses – Le Journal des Entreprises
3.5 million euros is the amount that the Fondation de France will mobilize to convert the manor of the Branféré estate into an event space dedicated to companies. Covering an area of 400 m², this historic building built in 1848 will be able to accommodate between 100 and 150 people for seminars or training courses. The themes targeted will concern nature and biodiversity, but also CSR and decarbonization. Created in 1965 by Paul and Hélène Jourde, the Branféré park (9 M€ turnover; 80 employees) houses an important botanical collection and more than 1,200 animals on a 45-hectare site. Owned by the Fondation de France since 1989, it attracts around 300,000 visitors each year, particularly schoolchildren, making it the third paid tourist site in Brittany.
