A feeling of grandeur pervades this magnificent 18th century Chateau. Nestled in a private park, this timeless chateau enjoys over 5 hectares of glorious gardens and listed orchards that border the River Loire.
The owner Veronique has recently restored the Chateau, and in doing so has managed to achieve a successful combination of regal decor and comfort. The exterior, with its soft cream stone and Wedgwood blue shutters have a traditional look, as does the interior with its high ceilings and elegant furnishings.
The Chateau can sleep 16 in its superb 7 guest rooms. The chateau has a swimming pool and the local activities for all ages are varied. You are even welcome to land your helicopter on site! The owner provides each guest with some of her delectable home made jam !
Interior and grounds
On the ground floor is the grand entrance hall that is often the hallmark of all the great Loire chateaux. There is a charming reception room with views over the grounds and pool, an elegant dining room and the kitchen that is well stocked with appliances both new and time-honoured. The chateau’s adjoining Orangery offers a bedroom with en-suite bathroom, ideal for older members who prefer not to cope with stairs.
On the first floor there are 6 bedrooms, all served by a wonderful staircase. Each room has its own style of decoration and atmosphere and en-suite bathroom facility.
The chateau grounds are securely walled and extend to over 5 hectares. With the listed orchards, mature rose trees and the Loire meandering by, the grounds are a delightful and private place in which to walk or relax. The swimming pool has been recently added to make this a complete chateau rental suitable for any holiday group.
