Ideally situated for exploring the delights of the Loire valley, the self-catering Chateau De Vigner is beautifully set in lush and extensive grounds. The Chateau can sleep up to 14 guests, the Coach House a further 10, the farm cottage an additional 5 and the apartment another 4, resulting in a total capacity of 33.

Owner Profile

Property Owner

How long have you owned the property?
14 years.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
The chateau was owned by the main winemaker of the village and was rebuilt in 1877 after the vendeen war. With an estimated age of 900 years it is a mystery as to how the giant sequoia, which is not native to the area, arrived in the chateau grounds!

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
We're not aware of any famous guests but with the many fabulous wines and vineyards in the area, there are plenty of distractions to ensure a peaceful, relaxing holiday!

What’s the strangest or most difficult guest request you’ve ever received?
Our original french wifi code - all 50 characters(!), has proved challenging for some! Luckily, we have since managed to choose something more simple!

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?

Kayaking down the Loire is a breathtaking experience!

Really see?
Turn left out of the chateau for endless fields of sunflowers! And of course the many magnificent chateaux of the Loire.

Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
Enjoy the quiet country lanes directly from the chateau by bicycle or of course as a leisurely walk.



  • Fantastic wedding celebrations

    Posted by Julie T on 11/06/2017

    We had invited 26 guests to join us for our wedding celebrations. WOW! What a fantastic time we all had. The properties are all beautifully clean & ready for us on arrival. The pool is spectacular, large clean, with plenty of sun beds for all to relax on. The ground are quite extensive, with large areas of gardens, a super large, shaded area where we were spoilt with eating all our meals " al fresco".
    Roger, was always on hand if we needed a help with moving tables etc, and was a friendly & knowledgeable local.
    We would highly recommend this property for large groups, or families, as the space available for everyone to spread out is available.
    May, the owner, was always very helpful in our communications, and always kept us up to date within the booking process.
    The property, its surroundings, the local village, the weather, the food & drink, all made for the most fantastic long weekend. It all exceeded our quite high expectations.
    Thank you May & Roger, we were overwhelmed with the experience.

  • Fantastic Holiday

    Posted by Thomas H on 30/09/2013

    Our group of Americans spent three weeks in September at Chateau de la Vigne and had a fabulous time. We occupied all the rooms of the chateau and the apartments, numbering 21 to 25 people each week.
    Tom and Alice, the caretakers/chefs were amazing and provided us with three delicious gourmet dinners each week. They were always available to help us with questions, directions, restaurant reservations or maintenance issues.
    The beds were comfortable, kitchens well-equipped, and seating plentiful. The first week while the weather was warm, we enjoyed the pool.
