Overview of Chateau De Vigner

What Oliver loves…

  • The Chateau has heaps of character, and all the bathrooms have just been redone!
  • Large, safe, grounds with plenty of facilities to suit all ages.
  • Fabulously located in the Loire region; famous chateaux and vineyards/wine tasting.

What you should know…

  • Please note that the property is near a road which is often well traveled, but the gardens are very secure
  • The pool is not private unless you book the whole estate
  • The neighbouring village is very quiet, but it does have the all important boulangerie!

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.

Interior & Grounds

The chateau sleeps 12/14 and cots are available for those with very young children. The ground floor retains its original charm with unique tiled floors, elaborate and ornate ceilings and delicate period woodwork. A spacious and inviting entrance hall leads to 2 large period reception rooms, one a TV room the other a dining room. There is also a large, fully fitted kitchen.

Three large bedrooms dominate the first floor of the main house. There is a double and a twin that both have en-suite shower rooms and in addition there is a large family suite comprising a double bed, a sofa bed and en-suite bathroom.

The second floor offers spacious accommodation with one double bedroom that has a quad bedroom attached, as well as a large luxury bedroom with Jacuzzi bath and dressing area. The chateau has UK Satellite TV (Freeview channels only) and WIFI as well as a large selection of books/toys/games for your enjoyment. We have plenty of high chairs and cots available to put in any of the rooms free of charge.

On-site facilities include an impressive 12x6m floodlit swimming pool, set within a secure walled garden with a large terrace and games room with pool table, table tennis, boules and badminton. Young children are more than welcome and are well catered for with many toys, games and bicycles. A washing machine is also available. The chateau aims to provide plenty of on-site activities to suit all ages! Broadband internet access is available nearby.

Map, Location & Local Information

The Chateau is around 3 hours drive from Paris, or the TGV takes 1.5 hours to Angers, either from the centre of Paris (Montparnasse) or directly from Charles de Gaule airport. The Chateau is then 35 mins drive from Angers and car hire is very easy from the station.

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.

The Region

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.

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

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.
