Luxury boutique chateau hotel near Le Mans and Tours, France

ID: 411
This gorgeous historic family-owned luxury chateau hotel is perfect for a romantic break or special occasion celebration.

The chateau is between le Mans and Tours on the northern edge of the Loire valley. It is a haven of peace thanks to the acres of centuries old parkland and woodland that surround it.

Explore one of the four gardens in the grounds, Italian, Japanese, American and Inca, or take a seat in the enchanted setting of the beautiful rose garden. The whole environment of the chateau invites rest and relaxation.

Monsieur is the 20th generation to live in this historic chateau hotel which he shares with his anglo-american wife. Between them you'll receive the warmest of welcomes and enjoy an exceptional stay.

The chateau rooms combine elegance and authenticity with all the important modern comforts. Portraits of various family ancestors hang on the living room walls and the enormous buffet in the 18th C dining room is a real work of art. You can't help but admire the exquisite collection of china.

The Fireplace Room was the place where all, lords and servants alike, would gather around the monumental fireplace. A symbol of warmth and sharing, this room has now become the 'Games Room'. Enjoy a game of billiards whilst enjoying a warming glass of cognac, or converse about the Loire Valley versus tropical climates with Kakou the parrot!

The chateau is an ideal base for golfers, having three fabulous golf courses within an easy drive at which the chateau have negotiated discounted green fees for their guests. There are also riding stables 12km away and mountain bikes plus maps are available to hire at the chateau.

The chateau is unsuitable for young children due to the dry moat fortifications and priceless antique furniture.
