Overview

Wedding Venue

This ivy-covered chateau in the Loire Valley is nestled among a copse of trees, but it’s far from remote. Here, set within a 180 acre golf resort, you can host a truly sublime retreat. Guests of the chateau can take advantage of the hotel spa nearby for free, where 3 swimming pools, a jacuzzi, a sauna, and a fitness room are at your disposal. Reduced rates on spa services and golf are yet another courtesy included with your stay.

The estate includes both the main chateau, and two separate apartments in the righthand wing. This 17th century property feels like a relaxed, traditional countryside home; you’ll love the worn wooden beams overhead and many windows. Imagine tea outside on the terrace, a sense of complete privacy and ease (thanks, in part, to the moat surrounding the courtyard!)

For an adventure, horseback riding can be found at Les Crins Blancs, 2 kms down the road. The nearest major town is La Châtre, 10 km north. Here we recommend the Parc des Parelles for hiking, or simply exploring the dear boutiques and restaurants in town. The beauty of Loire Valley is all around...though you needn't leave the resort if you choose!

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.
