Luxury boutique chateau B&B near Saumur Western Loire Valley France

ID: 146
Located between Thouars and Parthenay, south of Saumur off the D938 in the southern Loire Valley, this fine chateau, which belongs to French Heritage, was acquired by its present owners in the 1990's and has been completely renovated to provide eight stately guest rooms in the 17th century chateau and 6 in the medieval Keep. In addition, the medieval Keep can be rented in its entirety.

Guests renting the Keep as a self-contained unit have complete use of the fully-equipped kitchen, the grand dining room and the salon. Most rooms, both in the chateau and in the keep can accommodate an extra single bed.

Since the Middle Ages the castle has had an elaborate ornamental potager (vegetable garden). The listed gardens, supported by the European Commission, have undergone a complete restoration program for the pleasure of all.

The chateau, park and gardens have been faithfully recreated as they were in the middle of the eighteenth century, based on detailed plans dating from that period.
