The Chateau is easy to get to from England and Ireland by flying direct into Nantes airport. Situated on beautiful grounds, the Chateau complex makes up one corner of a small, quaint village, which also has shops, a cathedral, and many summer events. Chateau Fairytale is the ultimate destination for your castle wedding or romantic holiday in France.
For its unique design, the original owners chose a very well-known architect from Paris. Louis Visconti was already famous for designing the Louvre extension and the tomb of Napoleon at Les Invalides. The Chateau was then built by Rene Honde in 1854 as a private residence for Count Rochenfoucauld and his family. Beautiful landscaped gardens, and a private lake, offset the grandeur of the stone edifice.
For the interior, the original owners chose the same neogothic style as the outside. The original decorations are unique in the Loire Valley; they seamlessly incorporate wood sculptures, Gothic paneling, and furniture to accent the rooms, along with large fireplaces and French paintings on the ceilings. The structure is a marvel to behold; 150ft limestone walls contain 365 windows, 52 fireplaces, and 12 turrets, as well as countless sculptural details along the facade. The splendor continues inside. Masterfully carved wood paneling and cabinetry, stunning hand-painted ceilings, and flawlessly chosen decor make each salon an historic holiday experience. The chapel that is found within the chateau can be used for small wedding ceremonies or renewal of wedding vows.
At the Chateau Fairytale, all of the accommodations have been refurbished to a standard that offers the grand design of the nineteenth century, with the luxury of 21st century technology. All conveniences are available at the chateau. Each suite includes robes, slippers, a hairdryer, private wc, bath and tea & coffee making facilities. The owners aim to make your holidays in France truly memorable.
