The Chateau has been extensively renovated and sumptuously decorated with beautiful antiques and rich fabrics. Although majestic with its dramatic, double carved-stone stairway in the entrance hall, and elaborate 16.5 foot ceilings throughout the main floor, the Chateau is warm and welcoming. An elevator services all four floors providing easy access to the magnificent reception rooms, gorgeous dining rooms, and the 14 beautiful en suite bedrooms, each one uniquely decorated in different color schemes ranging from azure to rose, and filled with antiques, crystal chandeliers and beds you never want to get out of! There is even a two-story master suite, with its own foyer, drawing room, and antique oak staircase leading up to a huge circular en suite bedroom with an original hand-painted domed ceiling.
There are also two apartments with 5 more bedrooms in a separate building that’s a 3-minute walk through the gardens from the Chateau. They are not decorated to the same luxury standard as the Chateau, but offer a very affordable way to have more people sleep on the estate at only €100 per night per apartment (€120 per night per apartment in 2020). The 2-bdrm will sleep 4 people; the 3-bdrm will sleep 6 people. There are also charming bed & breakfasts and hotels for many more Guests nearby.
There are many activities available on the estate and in the area. On site we offer swimming, tennis, fishing, row boats, croquet, ping pong and great walks (and runs) amongst the gardens, around the lake’s 2.5 kilometer shoreline, and through the woods. Wine tasting, golf, horseback riding, bicycling, river boat tours, hot air ballooning, museums, churches, restaurants, gourmet cooking classes and shopping are all nearby. Some, including wine tasting, bicycles and gourmet cooking classes will come to the Chateau.
The Chateau is well situated just 20 minutes from Angers with its great shops and restaurants. Angers is 85 minutes from Paris via TGV, and another international airport in Nantes is about an hour away. There are many other delightful villages to visit nearby.
Enquiries from location agencies, location scouts and location managers are welcome as the Chateau is also available as a castle location rental for film, movie & television productions, TV series, commercials, and fashion shoots, etc., in the Loire Valley, France.
Please note that the Château is not a B&B (chambre d’hote) and we do not rent individual bedrooms. Instead, the Château is a private vacation (holiday) rental that is only rented on an exclusive basis to one tenant at a time.
