Overview of Manor De Chalandes

What Oliver loves…

  • There is a huge and ornate indoor jacuzzi
  • One of the finest gardens in France, well known by many garden aficionados. It was even featured on British TV!
  • Many of the bed covers are from India, they are beautiful and they all match the colour scheme of their bedroom

What you should know…

  • There are lots of stairs
  • The garden, as it's so beautiful and well renowned, can be accessed by the public
  • There is no pool, but the huge jacuzzi should more than make up for that!

Originating from the 14th century, the Manor de Chalandes is renowned for its astonishing private gardens on the edge of the Loire, Brittany and the River Villaine. The Manor even has its own spa and is a rare treat for those who enjoy pure relaxation and style. Interestingly, the Manor de Chalandes was once a safe house during the 2nd World War. It stood centrally to the French Resistance movement lead by Marie Moquet.

The Manor de Chalandes is ideal for parties, anniversaries, weddings, clay pigeon shoots, marvellous banquets and world class dinners with the region's best wines to accompany them. Stay for a day, a weekend or longer. Michelle, the owner, is a superb host and will make sure you are well catered for during your stay.

The famous gardens at the Manor de Chalandes were designed by a leading landscape gardener to the Queen called Alan Manson. Mason wanted to create a vision of royalty that would survive all seasons. There are over 10,000 species of plants and flowers, many that are both rare and exotic. Parts of the gardens are open to the public. However, the gardens are so vast that they do not interfere with your holiday experience or privacy.

Please note that the property can accommodate groups of up to 20 when hiring the neighbouring cottage in conjunction with the manor. It can sleep up to 4 in 2 double rooms and is available for €100 per night.

Interior & Grounds

Sleeping a maximum of 16 guests, Manor de Chalandes offers 6 double rooms. All rooms have an individual charm reflected in their name. With crisp white linen, feather pillows, bathrobes and high-class toiletries, you will be sure to feel pampered, relaxed and sleep well. Extra beds are available on request should you have small children.

The main centre of activity is the salon. As with most rooms in the Manoir this features huge beams and a stone fireplace, as well as stunning views over the Rose Garden. Steps lead on to the terrace that overlooks the formal lawns and lake, always a popular place for cocktails or after dinner drinks.

The ‘salle-à-manger' is now how it would have been in the 15th century with exposed stone walls and floor, massive oak dining tables and access to the main tower (now the bar). There is an arched doorway through to the library, formerly the coach-house, but now used as a conference room with all modern communication facilities. There is also a kitchen on the ground floor however catering can be provided.

The Romanesque heated spa pool is situated in the centre of the barn buildings. Seating at least 12, this hand crafted mosaic construction is unique in France. The gardens have attracted visitors from all over the world, many comparing its beauty to that of Monet’s garden near Paris, and remains open to the public at various times of the year. Guests of the Manoir de Chalandes have privileged free access to the gardens. The grounds of this Manor are secure and safe and not close to any main road making it an ideal place for children. There is plenty of outside space with several gardens waiting to be explored. Sports on offer include badminton, boules, and croquet as well as fishing and rafting in the nearby lake.

Please note that the property can accommodate groups of up to 20 when hiring the neighbouring cottage in conjunction with the manor. It can sleep up to 4 in 2 double rooms and is available for €100 per night.

Map, Location & Local Information

The Region

Brittany is famed chiefly for its beaches, and with so much coastline to explore it’s certainly one of the best reasons to visit the region. But there’s more to Brittany than sun, sea and sand, and while a good chunk of our villas and chateaux in Brittany are found next to the coast the ones further inland are just as tempting. Want to get the inside scoop on Brittany before you book? You’ll find our full Brittany travel guide below, full of tips, inspiration and great things to do.

Catering & Services

The Manor can cater for many events including all large celebrations or small intimate parties with a few friends. One might like to celebrate in style with a private chef, and menus can be obtained upon request. A cleaner is available to ensure that the house is in full working order. €100 p/p for gala dinner (including wine). Contact Oliver's VIP Concierge Team to arrange any services.

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.
