Overview

Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Village Ideal for Parties

Chateau Laperier is a charming original century chateau in a stunning corner of the Loire Valley. Look out over vast vineyards to the royal 12th century Château de Chinon, the favoured residence of Henry II, just across the River Vienne.

In your little neat and cosy chateau, the needs of a modern family meet classic French architecture. Who would think that a house with turrets would also have a playroom for the kids? Outside, the large private garden with mini playground & private pool will ensure the kids head to bed in a timely manner! 

Foodies will be in heaven here; watch fresh French bread take shape at the new bakery just down the road from the chateau - there’s a vegetable market too, so you never have to struggle to scrounge up a meal. When you think of the Loire Valley, you think of white wine. But not so in Chinon! This tiny appellation produces cellar-worthy reds, primarily made of Cabernet Franc.

Wander the cobbled streets of Chinon, a mere 3kms away, and you’ll discover a multitude of boutique shops, and a dozen Michelin-recommended restaurants. North of town is the ultimate playground for kids and adults - Saint Benoit Aventure Park offers ziplines, climbing walls, aerial games, and more.

Chateau Laperier is a classic home away from home in the beautiful Loire valley, a magical spot.

    The front façade of the Chateau faces the Fortress Royale de Chinon, there are six principle rooms which share this view – it is a mesmerising sight to wake up to each morning, This view is particularly spectacular whilst watching the Chinon castle fireworks on Bastille day on 14th July. For those not visiting in July – fear not, the Royal Fortress lights up each evening!

    A beautifully appointed sitting room and dining room which opens up with double doors to create a great entertaining space. The kitchen is the heart of the house, with an open fire during those cold winter months and a welcome cool retreat in the summer. Families are well accommodated with a family suite on the first floor. A playroom sits at the end of the corridor for those mornings where Mum and Dad wish to stay in their beds! Along with a dedicated bathroom which makes bath times easier. Individually styled rooms with crisp white bed linen and snuggly throws await you. Follow the sweeping stairs to the top floor where you will find two turreted bedrooms and a room adorned with the original “Toile du Jouy” fabric wallcovering.

    This Loire estate has been designed on an English garden, with sweeping driveways and paths leading up into the woods. Lush woodland walks, where you will find a glade of Lily of the valley, an orchard and beautiful enchanted paths. It also has a wonderful 12 x 5 meter heated swimming pool (open from May to September).

    What a better way to start your morning than with a walk in the Loire- to the local bakery where you can fill your lungs with the amazing smells of the fresh croissants and speciality breads. The Pharmacy adjoins the bakery and a little further down the road is a fantastic new vegetable market, which also has the added addition of local artisan products and wine. The vegetables are so fresh and so much better than the local supermarkets. There is also a local supermarket 1/2 mile down the road, a Carrefour in the centre of Chinon and an Eleclerq the other side of town where you will also find many familiar brand shops.

    Owner Profile

    How long have you owned the property?
    10 years

    What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
    We fell in love with the place as soon as we saw it nestled in the trees.  Clearly we were wearing rose tinted glasses and we didn't see it as it was then and only as it is today!  The tranquillity and location is intoxicating and is full of our dreams.

    Are there any interesting stories in its history?
    The French Resistance used the caves as a network to steal the Germans wine and spook them at night.  Unfortunately they are not deemed safe to use at this present day.

    Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
    A few, but we need to be discrete.

    For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
    Really do? Puy du Fou is about 1 1/2 hours drive and well worth a day trip
    Really eat? Les Annee Trente is an excellent French restaurant and can cater for special dietary requirements
    Really see? The view from Chinon castle where you will spot Chateau La Perriere

    Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
    Bastille fireworks spectacular all of which can be enjoyed from the Chateau itself.  The front steps are a great place to sit and wait, with the cushions by the door to keep you from getting cold bottoms
