Overview of Chateau De St Louis

What Oliver loves…

  • The Count, who has owned this chateau in Charente for many years, could not be more welcoming
  • Fishing from the on site lake, and catered dinners in the medieval dining room
  • It’s a magical location for a wedding, with luxury accommodations and impressive exterior grounds for hosting a large group

What you should know…

  • Heating costs are charged at expenditure during the winter months
  • The chateau is typically a catered rental, though two kitchens are available for self-cooked meals upon request

This magnificent chateau in Charente offers guests a luxury, catered holiday retreat in a medieval castle. Set on a 50 hectare estate in the southern Loire Valley, it also makes for an enchanting wedding venue.

Ten stately bedrooms situated across two floors include en suite bathrooms and are gorgeously fitted with 17th and 18th century furnishings, four-poster beds and fireplaces. Additional beds are available to accommodate up to 24 guests. Or, rent the chateau’s keep alongside the main chateau and sleep a total of 40.

The grand salon, formal dining room, elegant living room, and library are all adorned with sophisticated décor, antique art, and period furnishings that feel as if you’re living in a distant era. Aside from the impressive architecture, the castle boasts historical significance: The Black Prince once imprisoned the French King, Jean le Bon, in the castle’s keep after the battle of Poitiers in 1356.

The extraordinary grounds will charm anyone, with its fruit trees, gardens, valley views, and vineyards, plus a fishing lake and a dramatic moat surrounding the property. You’ll be within three hours of Paris for day trips, and close by renowned wine and the Loire Valley Chateaux for an unforgettable French holiday.

Interior & Grounds

The chateau has 10 bedroom suites to sleep up to 24 guests. Each of the luxury bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom. 5 of the bedrooms are to be found on the 1st floor and 5 on the 2nd floor of the chateau. There are 4/5 extra comfortable beds in the chateau should they be required. Each of the bedrooms has its own unique character; there are wonderful fireplaces, four poster beds and classic 17th and 18th century furnishings.

On the ground floor of the chateau there is a dramatic salon, dining room and library. The chateau is usually rented on a catered basis, however there are 2 kitchens in the chateau that can be used on request.

Within the castle grounds there is an enchanting moat, a lake where one can fish, and the superbly maintained gardens. There are also excellent bird watching opportunities in the chateau 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.

There is a kitchen in the chateau so it is possible to self cater. Contact Oliver's VIP Concierge Team to arrange any additional catering services.

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.
