Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite Ideal for Parties

Ideally situated for exploring the delights of the Loire valley, this self-catering holiday chateau is beautifully set in lush and extensive grounds. The Chateau De Vigner can sleep up to 14 guests. On-site facilities include an impressive (12x6m) floodlit swimming pool which is set within a secure walled garden, with a large terrace.

The Chateau De Vigner is situated on the outskirts of the small wine-producing village of Concourson-sur-Layon and the owner is friendly with a few of the local wine merchants so please inquire for special offers and wine tasting opportunities!

Also on the estate there is a Coach House (sleeping 10) and the farm cottage (sleeping 5), that can also be rented with the Chateau, depending on your group size. The capacity of the entire estate is 29 if all properties are rented together.

The owner is happy to help in any way that she can and has friendly links to a few local vineyards, so if you do wish to go wine tasting locally please ask. You can see some of the world’s most magnificent Châteaux and taste the famous wines served to you by the producer in his own cellar. Enjoy the rolling countryside, the stately Loire river and its picturesque tributaries. Visit museums, local markets and theme parks, including Futuroscope and Puy de Fou. Relax on the famous beaches of the Vendée, less than 2 hours away. The river Layon itself, a short walk, is popular with fishing enthusiasts and contains a variety of fish. Golfers are well catered for, with 7 good courses within a 45 minute drive.

Concourson-sur-Layon has a small restaurant open during the day, but in Doue la Fontaine (5mins drive) there are plenty of restaurants/shops etc. It is a market town with plenty of character. There is also a large supermarket complex where you can buy all your provisions.

Owner Profile

Property Owner
May

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.
