Overview of Chateau De Vigner Estate

What Oliver loves…

  • This the perfect property for groups of families with children, there are loads of facilities to keep kids entertained and every care has been taken to ensure the property is child-proof
  • All of the bathrooms have recently been re-done
  • The Chateau has heaps of character and lots of lovely traditional wooden furnishings

What you should know…

  • Please note that the property is near a road which is often well traveled, but the gardens are very secure
  • The ground floor bed and bathroom and wheelchair access is found only in the Coach House
  • The neighbouring village is very quiet, but it does have the all important boulangerie!

Ideally situated for exploring the delights of the Loire valley, the self-catering Chateau De Vigner is beautifully set in lush and extensive grounds. The Chateau can sleep up to 14 guests, the Coach House a further 10, the farm cottage an additional 5 and the apartment another 4, resulting in a total capacity of 33. On-site facilities includes an impressive (12x6m) floodlit swimming pool, set within a secure walled garden with a large terrace.

The Chateau De Vigner is situated on the outskirts of the small wine-producing village of Concourson-sur-Layon and the owner is friendly with a few of the local wine merchants so please inquire for special offers and wine tasting opportunities!

Map, Location & Local Information

The Chateau is around 3 hours drive from Paris, or the TGV takes 1.5 hours to Angers, either from the centre of Paris (Montparnasse) or directly from Charles de Gaule airport. The Chateau is then 35 mins drive from Angers and car hire is very easy from the station.

The owner is happy to help in any way that she can and has friendly links to a few local vineyards, so if you do wish to go wine tasting locally please ask. You can see some of the world’s most magnificent Châteaux and taste the famous wines served to you by the producer in his own cellar. Enjoy the rolling countryside, the stately Loire river and its picturesque tributaries. Visit museums, local markets and theme parks, including Futuroscope and Puy de Fou. Relax on the famous beaches of the Vendée, less than 2 hours away. The river Layon itself, a short walk, is popular with fishing enthusiasts and contains a variety of fish. Golfers are well catered for, with 7 good courses within a 45 minute drive.

Concourson-sur-Layon has a small restaurant open during the day, but in Doue la Fontaine (5mins drive) there are plenty of restaurants/shops etc. It is a market town with plenty of character. There is also a large supermarket complex where you can buy all your provisions.

A region doesn’t get to be called “The Garden of France” without being pretty special, and the Loire Valley is just as luscious and beautiful as its nickname would suggest. There’s countless acres of beautiful woods, vineyards and farmland that produce some of France’s revered ingredients and delicacies, and a wealth of history and beautiful architecture that demands and rewards exploration.

Reviews for Chateau De Vigner Estate

Chateau De Vigner Estate Reviews

  • Fantastic Holiday

    Posted by thomas h on 30/09/2013

    Our group of Americans spent three weeks in September at Chateau de la Vigne and had a fabulous time. We occupied all the rooms of the chateau and the apartments, numbering 21 to 25 people each week.

    Tom and Alice, the caretakers/chefs were amazing and provided us with three delicious gourmet dinners each week. They were always available to help us with questions, directions, restaurant reservations or maintenance issues.

    The beds were comfortable, kitchens well-equipped, and seating plentiful. The first week while the weather was warm, we enjoyed the pool.

Owner Profile

Property Owner

How long have you owned the property?
14 years.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
The chateau was owned by the main winemaker of the village and was rebuilt in 1877 after the vendeen war. With an estimated age of 900 years it is a mystery as to how the giant sequoia, which is not native to the area, arrived in the chateau grounds!

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
We're not aware of any famous guests but with the many fabulous wines and vineyards in the area, there are plenty of distractions to ensure a peaceful, relaxing holiday!

What’s the strangest or most difficult guest request you’ve ever received?
Our original french wifi code - all 50 characters(!), has proved challenging for some! Luckily, we have since managed to choose something more simple!

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?

Kayaking down the Loire is a breathtaking experience!

Really see?
Turn left out of the chateau for endless fields of sunflowers! And of course the many magnificent chateaux of the Loire.

Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Enjoy the quiet country lanes directly from the chateau by bicycle or of course as a leisurely walk.
