This elegant country chateau in the Loire Valley will help you return to your senses. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the modern open kitchen, then wander the 450 acre estate. You can fish or boat on the lake, or hop on a bicycle to explore the French countryside. On Saturday the market at Noyen-sur-Sarthe will introduce you to Loire Valley specialties - keep an eye out for cheese, tarte Tatin, and sablés (the preferred biscuit).

Back at your family chateau there’s plenty of entertainment for the kids: games, toys, bicycles, an all-weather tennis court, and a private pool. Inside, the 9 bedrooms are each decorated to a theme, and 3 of them have the added privacy of en suite bathrooms, some with elegant roll top bathtubs.

Just a 20 minute drive from Le Mans, this holiday chateau offers an unparalleled balance of country delights and access to the city. If you miss the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race, you can learn all about it at the museum. Le Mans is blessed with gorgeous Roman walls, and winding medieval roads filled with fine boutiques and restaurants. Come discover the sensory delights of Loire Valley from this splendid chateau.

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.

Event information

Weddings are an important part of what we do at Chateau de la Houlberdiere, and with the outdoor wedding season running from May through to September, demand can be high. We only take one booking per week in order to ensure enough time to settle in and prepare for the big day, and while a wedding in the sunshine amongst the gardens of a chateau provides a romantic backdrop, we can also help organise events and activities for you and your guests, as well as accommodation for those not staying at the house.

The house, grounds and pagoda marquee are all equipped with the necessities (furniture, coolers, equipped catering tent etc) to comfortably handle dining events for up to around 170 guests.

As a rule, we don't work with any one, single, caterer as we prefer for our clients to be able to look around and find the service that best fits their style and budget. We have a list of excellent local caterers that we are very happy to suggest here ~ but we will also gladly work with any other caterers and suppliers you see as the best fit for your event. Ourselves, we don't impose any kind of additional charges or corkage fees.

The wedding weekend offer we propose gives our guests full, exclusive, use of the house and grounds from Thursday through to Monday ~ giving the couple time settle in before the event, and time to unwind after it. The house can accommodate up to 15 guests, but we have a comprehensive list of local guest houses, gîtes and hotels that you can find here to house the remainder of your guests nearby.

Please note any event rental may be subject to additional charges (that will be pre-agreed) on top of the published rental amount. This is to cover the extra costs associated with putting on a wedding. Please contact stephanie@oliverstravels.com for further details.

Reviews

  • Great family holiday

    Posted by Stephen W on 28/08/2017

    We rented this chateau for a fortnight and had family and friends over.

     

    It was an easy drive down from Cherbourg and we also went to Paris several times. It is about a 20 min drive to Le Mans and then under an hour on the fast train to Paris.

     

    There is also a very nice swimming lake only about a 20 min drive from the chateau.

     

    We had some great family barbecues in the evenings, sitting outside, and the children enjoyed the cycling, swimming and tennis. All in all, a very successful holiday.
