Built in the XVIIth century and renovated in 1997, Chateau Seiguier combines the charm of an historic rental with the comfort and amenities of a modern build.

Located between Chambord and Sancerre, Chateau Seiguier is the perfect place to explore the royal castles or the world-famous vineyards of the Loire valley. The village offers tennis courts and a horseback riding school for guests who like to get active, and there are five golf courses (including two of the best in Europe!) located between 15 minutes and an hour's drive away.

Wildlife fans can enjoy the occasional glimpse of deer under their windows, and anglers can try their hand at catching fish in the river or the chateau's private pond. Children will have a whale of a time playing outside or exploring the grounds, and there is a private access to the large, 15x5m swimming pool located in the 2.5 acre private garden. Endless fun awaits you all year round - this is one chateau where guests can't fail to be delighted with both the accommodation and location.

What you should know…

  • The property is not totally detached, however there is a secluded garden with high walls (accessible only to guests at Chateau Seiguier).
  • Quiet and non-intrusive property manager lives on-site in a separate part of the building with private access and facilities. Whilst she is on hand to help (if required), guests will have their own privacy.
  • The Wi-Fi connection doesn’t extend to the top floor of the chateau.

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

Reviews

  • Delightful

    on 22/08/2023

    We all stayed last week at Chateau Seiguier and had a wonderful time. The facilities are excellent, gardens delightful to walk in, elegant drawing room with library and games for children of all ages, and above all - a decent sized swimming pool. The owner's sister and her husband were on hand for any queries and were most helpful and welcoming. We all voted it a great success.

  • Lots of space for a large group

    on 16/12/2021

    The property is probably not the most chic in Oliver's Travels portfolio, but had plenty of space and was ideal for our large group of young adults. The pool was fabulous and there was plenty of space for badminton and football! The large wild woodland adjoining the chateau was great for kids and the dog to let off steam. Guests should be aware that this property is only a wing of the chateau - the middle part is rented as a B&B and the other wing is also rented by Oliver's Travels. However each part is fully self contained and the property is sufficiently large that the other guests had no impact on our stay. Great to be able to walk into the small town in 5 mins for every day groceries and bread and there is also a tennis court on the edge of the town which we were glad to have use of for free. We visited Chambord for the day - the nearest large chateau of the Loire Valley, but it was > 1h drive.

  • Wonderful holiday!

    on 28/10/2019

    The chateau was exactly as shown in the photos, but better. Beautifully decorated, well stocked and very comfortable. We were a group of 9 and there was plenty of room for us. We had a wonderful stay.

  • Loved it!

    on 20/09/2019

    We had a great stay in Eric's chateau which is a really neat joint as an American would say. We left behind a Bose speaker which Eric has returned to us at his own cost and all I can say is what a really neat guy as an American would say!

  • We have loved our stay!!!

    on 27/07/2019

    The Chateau is very well appointed both inside and out. The decor inside is immaculate and imaginative. The gardens are extensive and and interesting. The pool whilst a few metres from the house is perfect fun and very clean.

  • Simply Amazing!

    on 25/08/2018

    Wonderful Chateau. Very friendly & helpful on site owner. Quaint little town with 3 good restaurants. Golf, horse back riding & of course wonderful Chateau close by. Great value for the price.

  • Such A Wonderful Stay!

    on 21/07/2018

    Great for a large group. Large chateau with spacious communal areas,great pool and plenty of room for football, badminton..... and grounds with rice and lake great for the dog.

  • A Great Break!

    on 07/07/2018

    Chateau is in a wonderful location has a great deal of character and is quite spacious. The owner is a great host and very accommodating.

  • Very Nice Holiday!

    on 26/05/2018

    Beautiful rambling house in a perfect setting. We were very happy to stay within the area, walking, cycling and enjoying the garden.

  • Exquisite Chateau

    on 13/09/2017

    Lovely building and impressive surroundings. All the rooms were clean and well laid out. The kitchen was very well equipped too. Eric, the Owner, was lovely and very helpful.

  • Chateau Great

    on 09/09/2017

    We had a really enjoyable time. There was large rooms and very good accommodation. The swimming pool is great. The Suggested visits were great and especially excellent for horse-riding.

  • Thank You

    on 02/09/2017

    What a lovely week! We did lots of horse-riding and there is an excellent local town centre. Eric is very friendly and helpful. The countryside happens to be beautiful, as well as the Chateau and pool.

  • Fantastic Location

    on 31/08/2017

    Fantastic location with lots of space indoors and out. Some minor maintenance aspects could have been better, (e.g. Paintwork) but nothing out of the ordinary for such an old property.

  • So at Ease

    on 26/08/2017

    A great getaway for a combined family holiday. The outdoor space and size of the Chateau was perfect, to the point where we were spending majority of our time in and around the pool, playing garden games and having general fun. Its fair to say that we felt completely at ease in the garden and house. Eric was available to sort out any minor issues, as well as give nice advice about the area. All in all - a great week, great location, great company and unending laughs.

  • We hope to be back

    on 19/08/2017

    3 Families, 6 adults, 3 5-year old boys, 2 toddlers and a million laughs! This was a spectacular stay in a welcoming Chateau. Eric has been very informative and very helpful. Some lovely local restaurants, so keep an eye out. There are also some great local boat rides. Enjoy this fabulous house.

  • Beautiful Chateau

    on 12/08/2017

    Beautiful Chateau in the countryside of France. Great for large families, beautifully decorated rooms and master bedroom. Nature is within walking distance. It was great for the kids, especially with pool.

  • Fantastic Week

    on 05/08/2017

    Fantastic week spent in a beautiful house. Eric was the perfect host and very helpful. The grounds, garden and pool made for a perfect family holiday.

  • What a cool stay we had!

    on 28/07/2016

    The chateau is bright and airy, lots of high ceilings. And loved the fact it was a 2 minute trot into town for a beer, a bite or quick shop. Massive garden, and loved fishing for trout in the private lake (again a 2 minute walk!). Seriously cool chateau with lots of quirk. Being from London, it’s not often you see stars in the night sky, which was the case every night in Brinon. Thanks Eric!

  • Lots to see and do

    on 18/08/2015

    We had a great holiday in this beautiful chateau with lovely spacious gardens perfect for the kids. Not too touristy (in a good way!) around though plenty to do within a short drive.

  • Be back soon

    on 29/08/2014

    Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful house, we had a brilliant time and will definitely be back again.

  • We loved our stay!

    on 29/08/2014

    Firstly, many thanks for the use of your splendid chateau this last week. We all very much enjoyed ourselves. Great place indeed

  • Wonderful chateau stay

    on 04/08/2014

    We spent a lovely week at the Chateau. It's really beautiful. We consider return to your castle next year.
    Thank you for bikes!

  • Our Summer Holiday

    on 19/06/2014

    We chose this particular Chateau as it was dog friendly and also close to the village.
    Although the website has some good pictures, it is far better in real life. Very grand and impressive.
    This was a family holiday ages ranging from 40s right up to late 70s. We All loved the place , the pool,, the location was great for walking into the village for dinner or the local shops. We were blessed with very good weather which does make a difference, but I would recommend this Chateau.

    From a very warm welcome from Eric (the owner) to Bernadette one of his staff, everyone concerned made our stay very enjoyable.

    The dog loved it too !!!


    Thanks

  • Memorable French getaway!

    on 25/02/2014

    Once more, we thank you for our stay at the Chateau. I am certain it will remain one of our fondest memories throughout our lives!

  • The ideal family holiday!

    on 25/02/2014

    We enjoyed Brinon and the chateau very much. We took day trips to Chambord, Chenonceau, Blois, Orleans (where I lived for 3 years) and Sancerre. My daughter and two others made a day trip to Versailles. We had lunch at Auberge du 7 and dinner at La Solognote. Both were delicious.

  • Wonderful holiday

    on 25/02/2014

    Very nice place, very clean, with all the things you may need for a great vacation! As a bonus, spectacular garden, lake and forrest on this unbelievable domain. And very nice people, too, I hope we'll come back in the future.
