Heritage Collection
All Bedrooms En-Suite

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 six-bedroom masterpiece will feel as if you are living among the imperial elite, with medieval furnishings, rich tapestries, antique art, and sophisticated décor. Grand, stately rooms allow for both socialising 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 (15 in the bedrooms and one guest on an extra bed available upon request), 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.

Reviews

  • An authentic and welcoming experience in a romantic chateau, simply marvelous!

    on 08/09/2023

    A beautiful estate, the 17th century chateau has beautiful reception rooms, with a stunning set of gardens. We loved the orangerie and the newly restored dovecote. We woke up to the sound of the local church bells and enjoyed a lovely breakfast in the Keep, with parts dating from the 11th century. The owner was a very friendly and welcoming host who made us feel at home. Highly recommended.

  • Unique stay in a medieval castle

    on 27/04/2023

    Very unique experience. We stayed in the 13th century keep rather than the 17th century chateau. It was very cosy and well appointed. Our hosts were very welcoming and we could tour the entire estate. Highly recommend.

  • A real authentic castle experience - loved it

    on 30/08/2022

    Loved the room and the decor - just like a story book! The canopy beds were comfortable, good sized room. The host was lovely, breakfast was continental and very good and we had what we needed. The gardens were very cool to walk through. It was a great experience. Loved the peddle boats too - it was a great activity!
