Overview of Chateau De St Louis Keep

What Oliver loves…

  • This chateau in Charente could not be a better wedding venue, with luxury accommodations and impressive exterior grounds ready to host an enchanting large-scale event
  • The on site fishing lake and the moat surrounding this fairytale castle
  • All the bedrooms have fireplaces!

What you should know…

  • During the winter months, heating is charged on expenditure
  • A car is recommended to make the most of the region

Exuding a regal elegance from a bygone era, this majestic and historic chateau in Charente makes for an exclusive holiday retreat and unforgettable wedding venue in the southern Loire Valley.

A stay in this eight-bedroom masterpiece will feel as if you’re living among the imperial elite, with medieval furnishings, rich tapestries, antique art, and sophisticated décor. Grand, stately rooms allow for both socializing and relaxing, including multiple reception rooms, one with a gorgeous fireplace, for dining or hosting groups.

Each of the luxury bedroom suites is uniquely and thoughtfully designed and includes en suite bathrooms and cozy fireplaces. While the Chateau De St. Louis Keep can accommodate up to 16 guests, it can be rented in tandem with the main Chateau De St. Louis to host a total of 40 guests.

The grounds are equally as impressive as the interior, with vast gardens, fruit trees, vineyards, a lake for fishing and parklands to explore, all surrounded by an impressive moat. There are also excellent bird watching opportunities!

Nestled between Parthenay and Thouars, guests will be within close distance to the famous Loire Valley chateaux and, of course, the renowned wine and cuisine that attracts visitors far and wide.

For larger groups it is possible to rent the keep in conjunction with the chateau to sleep groups of up to 40 guests.

Interior & Grounds

The keep has 8 bedroom suites to sleep 16 guests. Each of the luxury bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom. There are 2 bedrooms on each of the 4 upper floors. Each of the bedrooms has its own character; large fireplaces, stained glassed windows, four poster beds and classic medieval furniture.  

On the ground floor of the keep there is a fantastic living room, dining room and kitchen. The keep is rented on a self catering basis. However, you are able to take meals in the grand hall of the main chateau.

The keep and castle are surrounded by a dramatic moat, a lake where one can fish, and the superbly maintained gardens. There are also excellent bird watching opportunities within the estate.

Map, Location & Local Information

Le Chateau de Saint Louis is located in the most southern part of the Loire Valley in the region of Poitou-Charentes between the cities of Parthenay and Thouars. The castle is a 3 hour drive from Paris. By high-speed TGV train from Paris the travel time is 1.5 hours to Poitiers, which is a 45 minute drive to the castle.

The Region

With so much on offer, it’s a wonder the departments of Vendée and Charente aren’t bursting with tourists throughout the year. With Paris not too far off (so travel and a day trip to the City of Light are a breeze) you can still experience the quaint rhythm of the French countryside – especially if you’re thinking of staying in one of our holiday villas in Vendée and Charente. To tempt you to visit and give you some inspiration, we’ve put together this handy Vendée & Charente travel guide so you can make the most of your trip.

Catering & Services

A continental breakfast is served upon request in the dining room for €15 per person per day (eggs and bacon are available for €5). Also, the Chateau will gladly provide you with dinner served in the dining room for €75 per person and a half bottle of red Chinon wine per person. Aperitifs and coffees are additional. There are plenty of fantastic local restaurants.

Contact Oliver's VIP Concierge Team to arrange any additional catering services, and more.

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.
