What Oliver loves…
- The Count, who has owned this chateau in Charente for many years, could not be more welcoming
- Fishing from the on site lake, and catered dinners in the medieval dining room
- It’s a magical location for a wedding, with luxury accommodations and impressive exterior grounds for hosting a large group
This magnificent chateau in Charente offers guests a luxury, catered holiday retreat in a medieval castle. Set on a 50 hectare estate in the southern Loire Valley, it also makes for an enchanting wedding venue.
Ten stately bedrooms situated across two floors include en suite bathrooms and are gorgeously fitted with 17th and 18th century furnishings, four-poster beds and fireplaces. Additional beds are available to accommodate up to 24 guests. Or, rent the chateau’s keep alongside the main chateau and sleep a total of 40.
The grand salon, formal dining room, elegant living room, and library are all adorned with sophisticated décor, antique art, and period furnishings that feel as if you’re living in a distant era. Aside from the impressive architecture, the castle boasts historical significance: The Black Prince once imprisoned the French King, Jean le Bon, in the castle’s keep after the battle of Poitiers in 1356.
The extraordinary grounds will charm anyone, with its fruit trees, gardens, valley views, and vineyards, plus a fishing lake and a dramatic moat surrounding the property. You’ll be within three hours of Paris for day trips, and close by renowned wine and the Loire Valley Chateaux for an unforgettable French holiday.
|Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill’otel|
Yey! Wait… what is that?
What can be arranged?
What you should know…
- The Chateau does not include the rental of the Chateau Keep, which shares the grounds
- The chateau's keep is also available to book either separately or together with the main chateau (for up to 40 guests in total)
- Heating costs are charged at expenditure during the winter months
- The chateau is typically a catered rental, though upon request a kitchen is available for self-cooked meals at the Orangerie
The chateau has 10 bedroom suites to sleep up to 24 guests. Each of the luxury bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom. 5 of the bedrooms are to be found on the 1st floor and 5 on the 2nd floor of the chateau. There are 4/5 extra comfortable beds in the chateau should they be required. Each of the bedrooms has its own unique character; there are wonderful fireplaces, four poster beds and classic 17th and 18th century furnishings.
On the ground floor of the chateau there is a dramatic salon, dining room and library. The chateau is usually rented on a catered basis, however there are 2 kitchens in the chateau that can be used on request.
Within the castle grounds there is an enchanting moat, a lake where one can fish, and the superbly maintained gardens with a Weber gas BBQ. There are also excellent bird watching opportunities in the chateau estate.
Le Chateau de Saint Louis is located in the most southern part of the Loire Valley in the region of Poitou-Charentes between the cities of Parthenay and Thouars.
The castle is a 3 hour drive from Paris. By high-speed TGV train from Paris the travel time is 1.5 hours to Poitiers, which is a 45 minute drive to the castle.
A region doesn’t get to be called “The Garden of France” without being pretty special, and the Loire Valley is just as luscious and beautiful as its nickname would suggest. 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. Whether you’re heading off with the family, friends, or both, our fantastic portfolio of Loire Valley villas and chateaux means you’ll find fantastic, comfortable and quirky accommodation no matter your preferences.
