An extraordinary 900-year old chateau in the Pays de Loire with luxury accommodations and a picturesque setting outside a pretty village: this historic castle sets the scene for magical family holidays and fairytale weddings.
While the main castle is both a B&B and the owner’s residence, the two wings can be rented independently or together as a venue. This particular wing - The chateau- dates back to the 13th century and is artfully designed. Ornate wallpaper, rich tapestries, antique furnishings, and chandeliers decorate the four floors, including five sumptuous bedrooms with luxury bedding and gorgeous valley views.
Dinners at home are quite special in the medieval dining room beside the Gothic fireplace (wood included!), and the library, piano, billiard table, and games make it easy to stay entertained indoors.
The 15 hectares of parkland are filled with exotic trees imported from all over the world. Guests will also love the private pond, shared pool, and a vibrant French garden, complete with ancient castle ruins.
The famous Puy du Fou is a must see. It’s been named the 2nd most popular theme park in France next to Disneyland Paris and is just 8km away!
The owners live in the main part of the castle and they rent 2 historical wings of the large castle: the XVIIth century Chateau Des Poets Keep and (or) the medieval . Each house has its independent entrance, a private garden or terrace. Please contact us for further details.
