Overview of Chateau De Grazay

What Oliver loves…

  • Grazay has a modern tennis court, a heated swimming pool, and a games room - unrivalled facilities and the perfect hat-trick for active families..
  • The secure gatehouse across the courtyard is ideal for a young family.
  • The atmospheric kitchen in particular is awesome and & will serve as a great hub for your party.
  • The front terrace, and the poolside are perfect spots for your sundowners, take your pick!
  • The massive fireplace in the television room is a particular highlight, even in the summer, logs aplenty are provided.
  • Do read the house book for great local tips. Make sure you checkout the yummy Auberge de Jable restaurant, insist upon a table under the vines

What you should know…

  • Grazay isn't actually a chateau, it is a Manor. It is seriously stunning however!
  • The nearest town is a good 25 minute walk, however there are half a dozen usable bicycles which are brilliant fun to zip around on.
  • The excellent housekeeper will pop in once or twice a week to make sure the pool is clean and the flowers watered.

The Chateau de Grazay is set in the heart of the tranquil Loire Valley, nestled in rural surroundings on 2 hectares of recreational land. This French holiday chateau can only be described as superb!

14 guests can be comfortably hosted in the 6 bedroom chateau and 1 bedroom gatehouse. There is an indoor games room, which features table tennis, table football and a variety of board games. There is also a private heated swimming pool, a terrace and a recently laid hard tennis court for you and your guests to enjoy.

Situated in the Loire Valley midway between the city of Tours and Saumur, Chateau de Grazay is a classic Loire chateau rental that has all the amenities you could hope for, as well as being a perfect base for exploring this awe inspiring region of France.

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!

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.

Chateau De Grazay Reviews


  • I know we'll be back!

    Posted by Megan on 20/07/2015

    Back in rainy old UK now after another very happy week in Grazay, and this time with glorious weather.

    Many thanks for letting us stay in your stunning chateau once again.

  • Many thanks for letting us enjoy your beautiful house once again.

    Posted by Megan P. on 05/07/2015

    we're all very happily settled into Grazay; thrilled to be back again. It all looks in beautiful order, and we'll try to keep it that way.

    We're very grateful for the two bottles of wine you left. We haven't tried the rose yet, but the red was absolutely delicious. Thank you very much.

  • Look forward to returning soon

    Posted by on 03/09/2013

    We enjoyed our stay very much and would enthusiastically recommend it to our friends. Jane Sheng (w/e 10/8/13) from Boston MA

  • Excellent family getaway

    Posted by on 03/09/2013

    If you hadn’t written to me I would have in any event have written to you to tell you what a wonderful holiday we have all had at Grazay , & how much we all loved being in your Chateau.

    I think we used all rooms in the house & all outside areas for sports games . The latter include tennis, swimming , rounders & volleyball.

    The indoor facilities were just as good & each room was used on most days .

    Your information pack is really well put together. Congratulations to the author .

    Fabien & Karine were very helpful & quick to respond to our 2 cries for help.

    All of our family have individually , & without prompting , said what a wonderful week we had, & can we do it again . So, many thanks to you .” Howard and Jean (w/e 3/8/13) from London

     

  • Wonderful French holiday

    Created on 01/08/2013

    We thoroughly enjoyed the house. It was a delight for our Family. The final night's storm was amazing (and a bit scary), but that was the only thing that detracted! Many thanks.

    Best regards,

    Rob McCormick

     

  • Can't wait to return!

    Posted by Mrs. Stuart on 29/07/2013

    We've recently returned from a wonderful holiday at Chateau de Grazay, where I know one of the owners of Oliver's Travels has also had a fantastic holiday. We may well have another holiday there in the future.

    Many thanks,

    Megan Stuart

     

  • Wonderful time cant wait to return!

    Created on 23/07/2013

    Thank you Philip.

     

    We did have a glorious time for the whole week, and were talking about

    returning even before we left. It was so warm that we didn't play

    tennis, and so wasted your fantastic court, and we also felt we hadn't explored the countryside or the towns at all. But the house and grounds were so fantastic that we were completely happy.

    So we'll definitely hope to visit your home again.

    Best wishes,

    Megan

     

  • We would recommend Grazay to our friends

    Created on 10/07/2013

    Hello Philip,

    We had a very good time at Grazay. Thank you for your considerate and rapid response to our concerns. The refund is very much appreciated since it did dampen the experience a little. Having said that, we felt very confident that you had taken all measures possible to find a solution to the problem, and from a personal perspective I though you managed the situation incredibly tactfully. We would recommend Grazay to our friends in Australia, and thank you again for all your efforts to find a speedy resolution.

    Kind regards,

    John

     

  • What an amazing place!

    Created on 09/07/2013

    Just wanted to let you know we're having a wonderful holiday in your house. It's absolutely beautiful here; completely special, and then the sun is shining all the time too.

  • We all enjoyed the tennis court and swimming pool

    Posted by Anon . on 24/01/2013

    I just wanted to let you know what a beautiful house you have in Grazay and what a lovely couple of weeks we have just spent there, even though the weather was not always brilliant.

     

    We all enjoyed the tennis court and swimming pool and I found your brilliantly equipped kitchen a great treat in which to cook with the added bonus of your wonderful herb garden. Your next door neighbour even sold us some of her home grown haricot verts, cucumbers and courgettes!

     

    We had dinner at the Auberge in the vineyard, though sadly were not able to eat outside, and would certainly never have found such a hidden gem without your recommendation.

     

    With thanks for letting out your house and for all your useful tips.

  • The perfect location for our family reunion.

    Posted by Anon . on 24/01/2013

    I just wanted to write to you and let you know how much we enjoyed our stay at your Chateau! You have it so well equipped and very nicely furnished.

    It is in such a wonderful location and we really appreciated the notes in the handbook about all the nearby restaurants and things to do. It was a perfect location for our family reunion.

     

    Thank you!

  • The house was magnificent!

    Posted by Anon . on 24/01/2013

    Everything went very smoothly. The house was magnificent, everything in perfect working order.

    Our youngest son, Sebastian, has declared that he never wants any other holiday destination in his life! This will lead to some discussion about next year's plans, as we usually visit a different country or area every year.

    Thank you very much for letting us enjoy your wonderful property!

    Bernadette Veeze- Kuijpers, 2011

  • A truly lovely place to stay

    Posted by Anon . on 24/01/2013

    I wanted to take the time to say how lovely we found your chateau. Despite a slightly wetter week than we had hoped for, we managed to dodge the showers and make use of the swimming pool and tennis court, not to mention the games room! It was a truly lovely place to stay, it had everything you needed and could have hoped for, we will be definitely recommending it to our friends and hope if we stay again we may be blessed with sunnier weather!

    Marvellous place to stay – thank you.

    Kind regards

    Sarah Licence, 2011

  • We were absolutely delighted with our stay at your lovely chateau.

    Posted by Anon . on 24/01/2013

    It is an impressive property with sympathetic and tasteful renovation, great facilities and a beautiful garden. All of the family were enchanted by it and, helpfully, the weather improved each day we were there. The pool was well used by us.

     

    The property was also beautifully clean when we arrived.

     

    Many thanks and kind regards,

  • Very good value for money

    Posted by Ravi Sabharwal, Director Simply Chateau Ltd on 06/08/2010

    Hello Philip, The chateau was extremely comfortable. Everything down to the kitchenware was high spec. The particular highlights for me were the tennis court, and the pool being heated at a constant 28 degrees meant swimming was possible at all hours. The caretakers are a real asset for you, charming as anything and so helpful. It's an extremely stylish property and the on-site facilities are such a bonus. This is a superb property, which represented very good value for money, in a beautiful part of the Loire. Hope to return.

  • We all really enjoyed it

    Posted by Penny D on 06/08/2010

    All went well with our stay at Grazay thank you. We all really enjoyed the house and grounds.

    Posted by Ann Marie on 06/08/2010

    We found your chateau without any problem and are ecstatic with how beautiful it is. It is our dream come true holiday and we thank you very much. It is beautifully decorated and cared for and perfect for our holiday! We have noticed one small thing that you may already be aware of. The flushing button on the ground floor toilet keeps getting stuck and continues to fill. We have been able to stop it manually but it may need seeing to. Apart from this minor thing, everything else is perfect! Thank you again and warm regards.

  • We had an absolutely wonderful week

    Posted by Jane Vickery on 05/08/2010

    We had an absolutely wonderful week - you have a lovely house! It met all our expectations and more! You have thought of everything!!

  • We very much enjoyed our stay

    We very much enjoyed our stay thank you. You have a beautiful house.

  • We had a fabulous time for two weeks.

    Posted by Tom I on 30/07/2010

    We absolutely loved our stay at Grazay. It couldn't have been better - everything in the house was just so well thought through - we all really felt it was a proper home and not just a holiday rental. We may have worn your petanque out - given the use it got - thankfully I managed to remain top dog although my wife would disagree! There was a new intermarche in Richelieu which we found which is quite good and quite near - I also visited both your wine recommendations and certainly the couly we have already tasted is excellent I have only managed one bottle of the Baudry thus far so too early to tell but Cravant looks like a wine mecca! I hope we can visit Grazay again next year - but we are nearing completion on our place in Switzerland so may have to go there next summer! Thanks once again for loaning us your house - we had a fabulous time for two weeks.

  • Marvellous place to stay thank you

Thank you!

  • We had a marvellous time

    Posted by Deepak & Francoise on 29/07/2010

    Hello Philip

    I together with my wife Francoise returned to the UK yesterday after a memorable stay at your lovely home which was followed by a few days in Senonches and then Senlis.

    We had a marvellous time. It was enjoyed by all. You have a very special place at Grazay. It has all that we could have hoped for. A beautiful house with a very well appointed interior. We made good use of the pool, the tennis court ( My legs are still sore as it was the first time I played for 20 years) and indeed the table tennis table with sessions late into the night. The location was ideal for us. Francoise has a love of the Loire having holidayed by it since her youth. She insists on a visit once a year. We managed to drag members of the party to Azay le Rideau and Richelieu but it was not easy to get them away from the attractions of Grazay. Our 40th anniversary was celebrated at a lunch at the Auberge de Jable. They had set up a table for us under the vines. The food was delicious. Thankyou for the recommendation, indeed the owners were very happy that you had sent us to them. Your hospitality is much appreciated. Fabian and his wife too were most helpful. All the best
