The Experience

The château sits proudly on a rise in the peaceful countryside of the Mauges. History-buffs Sabine and Thierry give you generous breakfasts in the medieval panelled dining room, with homemade jams, fresh fruit and bread hot from the oven.

Walkers will head for France’s best historical theme park, Le Puy du Fou only half an hour away, and for garden lovers the oriental park at nearby Maulevrier is unmissable. Bedrooms are roomy and comfortable with traditional antiques, pretty fabrics and views stretching across the moat and over the unspoilt countryside.

Take a dip in the pool, sit and admire the view with a glass of local wine or chat to the owners about the local history. There are good restaurants just minutes away by car.

Reviews

This is a fine old château with comfortable bedrooms situated in attractive French countryside. It's wonderfully close to the Puy du Fou and the Parc Oriental de Maulevrier, both of which are absolute must-sees!

Location

The neighbourhood

You’re surrounded by nothing but farmland and sleepy villages. To the south are the gently undulating fields of the Vendee and to the north the southernmost reaches of the Loire valley, with its castles and vineyards. The main motorway leading from the Breton ferry ports going south passes close by.

Local points of interest from Sabine & Thierry Lajentes

  • The "Parc Oriental" in Maulévrier is the largest japanese garden in Europe. A beautiful walk in the parc will take you all the way to the country of the rising sun... Do not miss it...!
  • 25 mn away is the parc of the Puy du Fou... The most visited medieval amusement parc in France will take you 600 years back with its medieval shows and will tell you the stories of King Arthur's legends...

Introducing

Sabine & Thierry Lajentes

Thierry was raised in a famous Parisian restaurant. After years in business it was with joy that he and Sabine (a midwife) left the city to devote their time to the château, which was already a B&B, and once again surround themselves with people. Their children are also passionate about history and were the driving force behind this move, returning as often as they can to help.
