Live like royalty when you stay at this lavish French chateau in the Loire Valley. Built two centuries ago on 70 acres of meticulously curated grounds, Chateau De Flora offers a rare taste of history with deluxe amenities.

Inside are antique period furnishings and décor, multiple dining rooms, two kitchens, a chapel, and an impressive grand salon that takes you back in time.

Six elegant bedrooms accommodate up to 13 guests, and the kids will love the table tennis and games provided.

There are many places to settle in with a book – from cushy chairs beside the fireplaces, to beneath one of the many trees within the grounds, to a sunny spot by the pond (where you can fish too).

Included on the grounds are badminton, a new heated swimming pool and tennis court.

If you can tear yourself away from chateau activities, castles, wine tours, and historic villages are close by. Try local cuisine at La Diligence 10 minutes away, or market goods from the nearby town Cande. The Mont of Saint-Michel day trip is a must and The Puy du Fou medieval park in Les Epesses is fun for all.

Good news! For a little extra, this property is available as a Vill’otel
Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

What’s included?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the Extras tab for all the details.

  • Coming back!

    Posted by Alyson on 08/05/2019

    We had a wonderful stay at the Chateau! The weather was absolutely perfect and we soaked up every bit of the scenery. We also had your cleaning lady cook dinner for us, it was delicious!
    We look forward to another visit in the future!

  • Wonderful Stay!

    Posted by Howard on 24/07/2018

    Our family had the most wonderful time at your Chateau and exploring the local area. We are truly grateful for you enabling your lovely home that others can share. We feel very privileged. It is just not the building and park surrounds, but the fact that with all your personal features it really has the feel of a warm family home. Not just a house. We had the most divine weather and an unforgettable experience.

  • A Lovely Stay!

    Posted by Mary on 09/07/2018

    I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for making your lovely chateau available to all of us for our stay last week. The place is so charming, warm and full of history. We enjoyed everything! The pool the tennis courts, the kitchen, dining room and sitting outside for dinner and breakfasts. Madam was so kind as well as being a wonderful chef. We enjoyed her despite the fact that most of the group didn't speak French! As a matter of fact we argued about who was going to pack her up and take her home! Again, many many thanks and I hope one day we can repeat the trip with a stay at Chateau de Flora!

  • We Love it here!

    Posted by Lindsey W. on 04/06/2018

    We are so happy here! My husband and I are in the extra room and love the location of it in the house as the symphony of frogs in the pond and night creatures put us into a wonderful slumber last night. We feel so grateful that you and your family have chosen to share this magical place with us! We are LOVING every moment here. It is beyond perfect in every way.

  • Beautiful holiday

    Posted by Max T on 15/08/2017

    We had the best holiday of our lives. The property is more beautiful in real life then you can see on the pictures. Idyllic is the perfect word for this house. The pool and tennis court are in really great condition and we had so much fun. Beautiful!!!

  • Magical Chateau

    Posted by Anna A on 13/09/2016

    In short, this is a charming chateau in the most beautiful location. We were two families, with six children in total, and there was plenty of space for us all. Beautiful spacious bedrooms with many bathrooms and a fully equipped modern kitchen. The swimming pool and tennis court are super and the gardens are huge! But most notably, you can see the care and attention from the lovely owners, thank you!

  • Wonderful family chateau

    Posted by Toby F on 08/08/2016

    Magnificent chateau in beautiful surroundings. The chateau is perfect for families with children and is located close (but not too close) to town and places to visit. The tennis court was great and the pool wonderful. The hosts warmly welcomed us into this wonderful place. I hope to return one day.

  • Fantastic Holiday

    Posted by Hetta T on 12/07/2016

    We spent the most idyllic week at Chateau de Flora. We were 4 adults and 8 children and we all loved it. The children had plenty to do – swimming, tennis, table tennis and especially the horses, and everyone had a ride in the park.
    Since our departure, we have spoken fondly of our trip to the chateau and we would love to return.

  • 50th wedding anniversary

    Posted by K. Klatt on 08/12/2011

    We would like to thank you again for allowing us to visit Chateau de Flora. It became such a success with our friends that they all promised we should meet again in exactly 50 years... You know that my wife and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary thanks to you!

  • It is the most beautiful place to be

    Posted by V. Miller on 08/12/2011

    It is the most beautiful, yet the most comfortable and lived in house you are ever likely to find, and it contains everything you could ever want or need for an incredible stay and more!

  • Chateau de Flora holds the memories of a lifetime

    Posted by The Howard Family on 08/12/2011

    Chateau de Flora holds the memories of a lifetime for my family and me. This beautiful place is romantic and comfortable, awe inspiring and historical. We loved horseback riding at the local stables we enjoyed marvellous French meals. There were plenty of wonderful quiet places to settle in with a book or a sketchpad under a tree in the yard or in one of the large windows overlooking the pond. There were many hours spent exploring this exquisite place and its surrounding grounds. We played table tennis and tennis, visited markets, castles, and museums. We remember day trips to Mont St. Michel, Chenonceau, Angers, and Chambord. We hope to return again and again!
