Overview of Chateau Flacelliere Keep

What Oliver loves…

  • Booked as a wedding venue with Chateau Flacelliere Pavilion, this property can sleep around 130 guests
  • On arrival, the hospitable and welcoming owners will tell you about the fascinating history of the Chateau
  • The owner is extremely knowledgeable about wines, and wine tasting is available on site

What you should know…

  • The pool is shared with the B&B in the main castle and the Chateau Flacelliere Pavilion
  • Unfortunately there is no English television channels but there is a DVD player!

The 900 years old historical Chateau Flacelliere is located 8 km away from the renowned theme park of Puy do Fou, in the heart of the Pays du Bocage Vendee area, yet only an hour from the Atlantic coast. Surrounded by a hilly landscape, the chateau is idyllically set in a timeless village reachable on foot.

The Chateau, dating back to the 11th century, offers refined and bright suites, fine linens and top quality bathrooms. The waxed parquet floors and family antique furnishings are combined with discrete and modern comforts in harmony with the history of the property. The keep has 4 levels which connected by a large granite staircase, quiet easy to use.

Take in the expansive views of picturesque landscape including gently rolling hills, woodlands, pastures, old stone houses, cultivated fields and an ancient tower. The 900 year old Chateau Flacelliere castle has been the backdrop to several centuries of love, war and peace. Poets and great personalities have lived in this domain, each century leaving its mark.

The outdoor spaces are stunning: a 15 hectares park with the most incredible old and exotic trees, flowers and foliage. The large French garden is surrounded by ruins of the former castle and gives a very romantic and relaxing atmosphere! Garden furniture and barbecue are also available.

To top it all, there is a lovely shared pool (14x6 m), heated in summer and open from 9am to 7 pm.

The owners live in the main part of the castle and they rent 2 historical wings of the large castle: the XVIIth century Chateau Flacelliere Keep and (or) the medieval Chateau Flacelliere Pavillion. Each house has its independent entrance, a private garden or terrace. Please contact us for further details.

The Region

With so much on offer, it’s a wonder the departments of Vendée and Charente aren’t bursting with tourists throughout the year. With Paris not too far off (so travel and a day trip to the City of Light are a breeze) you can still experience the quaint rhythm of the French countryside – especially if you’re thinking of staying in one of our holiday villas in Vendée and Charente. To tempt you to visit and give you some inspiration, we’ve put together this handy Vendée & Charente travel guide so you can make the most of your trip.

Catering & Services

At Oliver’s Travels we pride ourselves on going that little bit further for our guests. If there is anything you would like to arrange for your stay, please contact the Oliver’s VIP Concierge Team (by clicking on the link in the blue Oliver’s Extras box above) who will be happy to help. We can usually put you in touch with the right people arrange any of the following:

- Romantic candle light dinners can be organized in the main part of the castle with the owners. It is a very special opportunity to enjoy a real French dinner served with precious china and silver cutlery and exquisite table settings. Price from 55 euros per person. Please enquire for further details.
- A very well-known chef is also available on request
- There is nearby bakery which sells simply exquisite "Brioches" and French bread!

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

Reviews for Chateau Flacelliere Keep

Chateau Flacelliere Keep Reviews


  • Wonderful castle

    Posted by Becrom B on 21/02/2016

    Impressive accomodation which feels like you're living in a museum. If you stay on the top floor, there are lots of stairs but that's what you expect in a medieval castle.

    Beautiful setting and would definitely recommend the property. Lots to do in the area especially for kids. I'd highly recommend puy du fou. It was a fantastic holiday.

  • Wonderful week

    Posted by David H on 18/09/2015

    Many thanks for making our stay such a memorable time we all enjoyed your wonderful chateau and the warm welcome and help you both gave us all.Even the weather was good to us ! The birthday meal and setting was superb . Thank you again.

     

  • A French Castle, Now Open To All

    Posted by Danny Hakim in the New York Times on 09/07/2015

    As bed-and-breakfasts go, it cuts a striking figure, with its towers and medieval tapestries and ancestral portraits, set among trees imported from around the world in the early 1800s, including American cedars and sequoias.

     

    The castle is filled with upholstered chairs, chandeliers, richly decorated wallpaper and fancy clocks. There was a statuette of a tiger under an oil painting of the Madonna and Child, flanked by Chinese urns. In one room there was a rather severe-looking portrait of an ancestor, Stanslas Vignial, the president of the royal court in Bordeaux in the mid-1800s, imposing in black-and-crimson jurist robes.

  • Beautiful chateau in lovely surrounding

    Posted by Spottymuldoon on 09/05/2014

    15 of us stayed here for a week 9 adults and 6 kids

    Absolutely faultless in every way

    The downstairs apartment was totally accessible with a large wet room and a small kitchenette

    The main kitchen had everything we needed for our stay and all rooms were sufficient to house 4 families/couples

    Our hosts were helpful if somewhat aloof which suited us fine

    And even though there were guests staying in the rest of the château it was very quiet at night

    The pool area was perfect and each day we ate great fresh food in various parts of the castle grounds without problem or hindrance

    The gardens are superb with some huge trees and lovely walks

    All in all a great place to spend some time with family and friends .
