Overview

Wedding Venue Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Village Ideal for Parties

Dating back to the 11th century, the Chateau de la Chance is a magical holiday chateau in an equally magical setting. The chateau enjoys 5000m2 of private grounds, has stunning gardens and a large swimming pool. The main chateau can sleep up to 15 guests and up to 25 extra guests can be accommodated in the surrounding gites owned by the estate, making the maximum capacity 40 guests.

A significant night in the Château's history was in 1576 when the owner, Jacques du Bellay had the honour of hosting the King of Navarre, later to become Henri IV or "le bon roi Henri", under the roof of the castle.

Since the eleventh century Château de la Chance has stood on the banks of the river Layon, a tributary of the Loire River - a cultural and horticultural rich region of the North West fondly known as the ‘Garden of France’.

Having been meticulously restored in the mid 1980’s it offers modern comforts while still retaining its original grandeur. The Château’s impressive character is preserved in its thick stone walls, high ceilings and seventeenth and eighteenth century antique furniture throughout.

It is through castles such as this that the history and culture of the region live on and Château de la Chance offer a unique opportunity to experience a slice of French life.

There is a wonderful feeling of space at the Chateau de la Chance, and the owners have ensured in every way that your holiday experience will be unforgettable.

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

The Chateau has been in the family for over 20 years and now in the caring hands of their eldest son, Michael (originally from Switzerland) and his New Zealand born partner. Both share a love for good food, wine, music and great company and find the Loire Valley region really embraces their passions. The river Layon meanders past the chateau and imbues peace and tranquillity around the property. The Chateau  itself is steeped in history and surrounded by vineyards, countryside and fascinating (and wild) animals.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?

The history of this castle dates back almost a 1000yrs when first mentioned in documents in 1055 with many owners over the centuries including Jaques du Bellay and Cossé Brissac. On March 25th 1576, Jaques du Bellay  has the honour of hosting the King of Navarre, later to become Henri IV or "le bon roi Henri", under the roof of the castle.

    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
