Overview

Wedding Venue Recommended Pool Walk to Village Ideal for Parties

Dating back to the 11th century, the Château de la Chance is a magical holiday château in an equally enchanting setting on the banks of the river Layon. The country château enjoys spacious grounds, has stunning gardens and a large, central swimming pool. The main château can sleep up 10-15 whilst 25 extra guests can be accommodated in the surrounding apartments and studios owned by the estate, making the maximum capacity 40 guests.

The château’s impressive character is preserved in its thick stone walls, high ceilings and stunning antique furniture yet it offers modern comforts while still retaining its original grandeur. Château de la Chance offer a unique opportunity to experience a slice of French life as the history and culture of the region live on. It’s an ideal venue for gatherings with family and friends, celebrations or even intimate weddings.

With kitchens in the château and apartments as well as two barbecues, you can prepare meals and dine al-fresco in the château courtyard at sunset whilst enjoying local wine. The owner can also arrange for catering for your stay should you prefer to spend more time relaxing by the pool side or exploring many of the incredible châteaux across the Loire Valley. Directly opposite the château you’ll find walking and cycling trails taking you to the local village and beyond in this glorious setting.

Other glorious places to visit include the historic city of Angers and the beautiful town of Saumur on the Loire River, famous for it's famous equestrian school, Cadre Noir, as well as its delicious white sparkling wine.

There is a wonderful feeling at the Château de la Chance and the kind owners have ensured in every way that your holiday experience in the Loire Valley will be unforgettable.

Please note that the château is exclusively yours for the rental period.

Château de la Chance is located on the banks of the river Layon in the Loire Valley between two rural wine-producing villages, only a 30-minute drive from the city of Angers. This region, in the Maine-et-Loire department, is known as ‘Anjou’ and the château is located directly on the Anjou Wine Trail (“Route des Vins & Villages de l’Anjou”).

The nearest village is an easy 1.2km walk from the château where you will find a supermarket, two boulangeries, an auberge (for lunch), butcher/caterer, bar/tabac, florist, ATM machine, cinema, garage, petrol station, a covered swimming pool and amenities such as a pharmacy, doctors and dentist. There is also a Farmer’s market on a Tuesday morning.

In the other direction, another village just over 2km away has a bakery, bar/tabac, mini-supermarket and tennis courts. There is also a Michelin starred restaurant a 15-minutes away by car, as well as a good selection of restaurants and bars within a 10-15 minute drive.

There are plenty of beautiful walks amongst the trails and vineyards directly across the road where you can follow the old railway track of 'Petit Anjou’. The Thouarcé - Chalonnes-sur-Loire route takes you to the very heart of the Coteaux du Layon and Aubance vineyards where you will discover a stunning landscape that is a patchwork of vines, mills, wine-growing estates and character properties.  There are also further cycling trails along the Loire river, known as the famous Loire à Vélo.

The owners have very good relationships with local wineries and they can help arrange a wine-tasting. Other activities include golf, horse-riding and boating on the Loire river which is just a 30-40 minute drive away.

The region is crammed with rich, cultural heritage and some experiences you won't find anywhere else in France. The beautiful city of Angers (25km) on the River Maine features a wonderful 13th century castle and a lovely old town where you can explore the cobbled lanes filled with cafes and restaurants.

On the Loire river, visit Saumur (40km), known for its famous equestrian school, Cadre Noir, and its excellent sparkling white wine. Also heading east you can visit the amazing Troglodyte caves in Rochemenier (22km) or the impressive Fontevraud Abbey (55km).

Tours (120km) is another great day trip, a city filled with history and excellent restaurants and markets. Perhaps combine with one of the Loire’s famous châteaux such as Château de Villandry (96km) or Château Royal d'Amboise (150km) as well as many others nearby.

Reviews

  • Wonderful stay!

    Posted by Colin on 08/08/2019

    Many of our party of 30 said that this was the best holiday they had ever had! The Chateau is stunning, and the gites, chambres d'hote and pool lounge were equally desirable. The swimming pool and grounds are lovely - we ate on the lawns frequently. The river was low because of the long dry summer, but still looked picturesque. Our hosts are charming and helpful, and one evening were excellent barbecue cooks. We strongly recommend the caterers they recommended (Fleurinet) for most of our other meals.

    A fabulous "castle" in prime vineyard territory, with plenty of chateaux close by to visit, and in the heart of rose growing land too! Lovely owners, paying attention to every little detail to give us the perfect stay. The chateau, gorgeous pool, garden and little river running alongside made it hugely tempting to never leave base!! We will return!

  • Wonderful stay

    Created on 09/09/2013

    Dear Heinrich, thank you. We had a wonderful holiday. Special thanks should go to John and Valerie who went out of their way to be helpful.
    The Chateau is lovely and we will certainly recommend to our friends.
    With thanks, Isobel

  • Wonderful stay at your Chateau

    Posted by Alice Anderson on 13/04/2012

    We had a wonderful stay at your Chateau. The place was clean, comfortable and very well organised. We enjoyed every minute.
    I will certainly let my friends know and hopefully be back to visit one day soon.

  • Such a marvelous chateau

    Posted by Family Andrewes Chateau De La Cheine on 20/02/2011

    We had such fun here for this week, such a marvelous chateau and grounds.

  • The chateau was wonderful

    Posted by Darren N on 11/02/2011

    Hi Heinrich, The chateau was wonderful, my brother entertained us on your new piano, and our children enjoyed the hospitality from Mr Linder and his partner. I wiil send you some images we took of the Chateau and some film of my brother playing the piano, you could put this on your site as a attachment. Thank you again we would have no hesitation at all in booking the Chateau again and will pass the info on to our friends. Best Wishes Darren

  • We had such a wonderful time in the chateau

    Posted by Robyn Pring on 04/02/2011

    We had such a wonderful time in the chateau. I wish we never had to leave. The dishwasher never did get working. Sandra and Mrs. Chariot did come to have a look at it and couldn't figure it out. We also checked the manual as suggested. We were told to turn on the tap, which was the first thing we tried, but it seemed to be turned off from some water main. All the lights would go on and it would make a sound like it was running, but no water came to the machine so it would stop itself. That was the only problem we had the whole time. I love the big bathtubs and heated floors in the bathroom and we all enjoyed sitting by the big fire on the cool evening. What a special place you have there. I am a luxury travel agent and will suggest your chateau to any of my clients coming to the Loire area and I truly hope to return myself someday soon. Thank you again for having us.

  • We had a lovely time at the Chateau.

    Posted by Viviann Jabbour on 03/02/2011

    We had a lovely time at the Chateau and the children enjoyed it immensely. It was great to find that the kitchen was so well equipped and the ladies working in the Gite were very helpful in getting us settled. My only suggestion would be to include some tall candles for the living room candle holders. Many thanks - and I will certainly recommend the Chateau to our friends.

  • Just perfect!!!

  • We had a wonderful time at Chateau Chance

    Posted by Paul Hybel on 14/01/2011

    Dear Mr. Stoesser, We had a wonderful time at Chateau Chance. We've stayed are several other castles in Scotland and Wales, and we thought Chance was the best. Both of my sons especially enjoyed the piano. We've already recommended the chateau to some of our friends. Kind regards
