Exuding a regal elegance from a bygone era, this majestic and historic chateau keep in Charente makes for an exclusive holiday retreat and unforgettable wedding venue in the southern Loire Valley.

A stay in this eight-bedroom masterpiece will feel as if you’re living among the imperial elite, with medieval furnishings, rich tapestries, antique art, and sophisticated décor. Grand, stately rooms allow for both socializing and relaxing, including multiple reception rooms, one with a gorgeous fireplace, for dining or hosting groups.

Each of the luxury bedroom suites is uniquely and thoughtfully designed and includes en suite bathrooms and cozy fireplaces. While the Chateau De St. Louis Keep can accommodate up to 16 guests, it can be rented in tandem with the main Chateau De St. Louis to host a total of 40 guests.

The grounds are equally as impressive as the interior, with vast gardens, fruit trees, vineyards, a lake for fishing and parklands to explore, all surrounded by an impressive moat. There are also excellent bird watching opportunities!

Nestled between Parthenay and Thouars, guests will be within close distance to the famous Loire Valley chateaux and, of course, the renowned wine and cuisine that attracts visitors far and wide.

For larger groups it is possible to rent the keep in conjunction with the main chateau to sleep groups of up to 40 guests.

Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked 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 can be arranged?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the 'Extras' tab for all the details.

There’s countless acres of beautiful woods, vineyards and farmland that produce some of France’s revered ingredients and delicacies, and a wealth of history and beautiful architecture that demands and rewards exploration.
