Overview of Chateau Des Joyaux

What Oliver loves…

  • This chateau in Loire Valley is built to impress: the 45m limestone walls contain 365 windows and 12 turrets.
  • The suites are each unique - we especially love the Romance Suite.
  • Loire Valley is known for its crisp, fruity white wines - be sure to visit the vineyards in Saumur.

What you should know…

  • You can hear the town church bells in the morning from the front bedrooms... but this adds to the charm!
  • The trophies in the hunting room may not be to everyone’s taste.

This magnificent chateau in the Loire Valley is known as “Petit Chambord”, for its resemblance to the royal palace in Loir-et-Cher. Built in 1854, it’s now the site of truly grand weddings, where guests stay in luxurious suites, and enjoy breakfast provided by the chef each morning. Your on-site concierge, Cynthia, will welcome you warmly - ask her about arranging horseback rides or spa services (or both!)

Whether you hold your nuptials in the private chapel or in the gardens, this chateau's French Renaissance architectural details will make your wedding photos unforgettable. The splendour continues inside, where masterfully carved wood panelling and hand-painted ceilings bring you back in time. Opulence pervades not only every room, but also the grounds, where the private lake is a romantic spot for a walk.

This holiday chateau is located only 30 minutes from the town of Angers, where you should tour the famous Cointreau factory. A ride on the TGV will bring guests to or from Paris in 1.5 hours. The Loire Valley is famous for wine and chateaux - since you have one already, set off in search of the vineyards. The wineries surrounding Saumur produce excellent sparkling wine...a toast is in order!

A destination Wedding is a unique experience with many concerns but rest assured we here at Chateau have our wedding coordinator ready to make your Castle wedding a day no one will forget. As you step through the doors of Chateau, the story of your fairytale Castle Wedding begins. For two days and two nights everything within the magnificent castle walls are exclusively yours. The bells will chime to summon the princess to join her prince. Some will meet under the hand painted ceiling of the Castle's intimate chapel, others will choose the village church and yet more will whisper their “I do’s” under the graceful oak trees in the sumptuous gardens – but wherever they meet for this wedding day the surroundings will weave a spell upon all that behold them for the rest of their lives.

Reviews for Chateau Des Joyaux

Chateau Des Joyaux Reviews


  • We fell in love with it as soon as we saw it

    Posted by Jill and Alan on 26/05/2010

    We have not been back long from our short break in the chateau, what a beautiful place, we fell in love with it as soon as we saw it, we were looked after from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The meals were superb and very well presented, nothing was too much trouble. It really felt very homely and very relaxing (we even got used to the church bells ringing). Zeus was always there to greet us when we got back from our day out, usually with a stick in his mouth. The surrounding area was beautiful too. On our wedding anniversary we even managed to get our photo taken in a field of sunflowers, something we have wanted to do since we got married. When we walked into the chapel for are wedding Blessing ceremony, I could have cried it was so beautiful, Fabian had done a lovely job decorating it with flowers and candles, everything went perfectly and it was a day to remember. I even managed to get the bouquet home to put on my fathers grave in Edwinstowe, Nottinghamshire. I cannot praise the chateau and staff enough. Many thanks for sharing your home with us

  • Our wedding day

    Posted by Newlyweds, Nancy & Joe Tuohey on 21/05/2010

    Joe and I cherish our wedding day memories made possible by your impeccable attention to detail. Chateau des Joyaux's romantic ambiance cannot be duplicated. Our only regret is that we did not schedule more to spend with you and your enchanting chateau.

  • Another memorable weekend at the Chateau

    Posted by Zeus and James on 14/05/2010

    Thank you so much once again for another memorable weekend at the Chateau it was so relaxing and we were made to feel so much at home? The dinner at Simon's Saturday night was simply fabulous? James and Zeus were like long lost friends and they were very content Sunday evening curled up in front of the fire with us in the kitchen.

  • Thank you for giving us the most wonderful time

    Posted by Susanna Szemerei on 07/05/2010

    I'd like to thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful castle. My husband I have spent the night of October 2nd. We had a marvelous time in your chateau. Everything is absolutely beautiful there, the style, every little touch. We felt like a king & queen staying in a palace. Our children (we have two boys, both married) and all our friends who saw the pictures we took, making a plan to go there sometime. Thank you again for giving us the wonderful opportunity to experience chateau living.

  • Our magnificent wedding

    Posted by Liz and Eric on 23/04/2010

    I would also like to take the opportunity to say an enormous thank you for our magnificent wedding at your Chateau. Our friends just can't stop talking about it. I guess we'll just have to do the same over again each year! Not to mention the weekends in between. No but seriously, it was wonderful to have all the stress of organizing a wedding eliminated - for once. I only had to concentrate on myself. All taken care of by you personally and we were all made to feel incredibly welcome and as for the buffet it was simply second to none and with those fabulous table settings and decoration everything looked a million dollars. I had to pinch myself that it was all real! And as for the elegant sumptuous bedrooms - wow! In short there are no words good enough to describe the whole day, other than to say that you, Cynthia and you fairytale Chateau are the ultimate. It was a dream that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. It would be impossible to better this venue for a wedding, as I am sure all of your couples would no doubt agree? It really is possible to be a princess for the day. Will be in touch very soon. Take care, Love.
