Overview

About the property

Just imagine staying in this luxurious, exquisitely decorated, 19th century chateau rental in a magnificent 105 acre estate located in the western part of the Loire Valley. Chateau Allure Du Lac is surely one of the most spectacular chateau rentals in France, offering a 22-acre private lake, lovely island, wonderful lakeside terrace, swimming pool, palatial lawns, gorgeous gardens and forests full of wildlife. With an elevator servicing all four floors, access to the reception rooms, dining rooms, chapel and the gorgeous en suite bedrooms available for Guests is easy. Open log fires, internet, wi-fi, and housekeeping and laundry services are also available.

Self-cater or we will prearrange delicious catering including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and full English afternoon tea, served in the dining rooms, gardens or on the lakeside terrace as you prefer.

There are lovely walks amongst the gardens, around the lake’s 2.5 kilometer shoreline, and through the woods. The swimming pool and adjacent pool house offer delightful relaxation in or out of the sun. Excellent carp fishing can be enjoyed in our lake. Wine tasting, golf, horseback riding, bicycling, river boat tours, museums, churches, restaurants and shopping are all nearby.

The Chateau is well situated just 20 minutes from Angers with its great shops and restaurants. Angers is 75 minutes from Paris via TGV, and the international airport in Nantes is about an hour away. There are many other delightful villages to visit nearby.

Enquiries from location agencies, location scouts and location managers are welcome as the Chateau is also available as a castle location rental for film, movie & television productions, TV series, commercials, and fashion shoots, etc., in the Loire Valley, France.

The Interior

The Chateau has been extensively renovated and sumptuously decorated with beautiful antiques and rich fabrics. Although majestic with its dramatic, double carved-stone stairway in the entrance hall, and elaborate 16.5 foot ceilings throughout the main floor, the Chateau is warm and welcoming. The Drawing Room is inviting with its oak paneling, huge log fireplace, and private lit terrace for early evening drinks and late night parties. The magnificent Grand Salon, with its parquet flooring, original oak linen paneling, tall windows, and massive mirrored fireplace mantle, offers a luxurious yet relaxed venue for gatherings both large and small. The Chapel, with its spectacular stone rib-vault ceiling, glorious stained-glass window, and gilded oak paneling is a consecrated haven for solitude and prayer.

The splendid Silver Reception Room floor was specifically designed for hosting parties, including elevator access for guests and hi-speed dumbwaiters connecting the Silver Reception Room’s service kitchen to the main kitchen two floors below. Aside from the Ballroom, there are numerous other places to dine in the Chateau, ranging from elegant to cozy. The Chateau’s delicious French specialties served in the Chatelain’s fabulous private dining room have Guests raving about the food and the superb candlelit tables fit for royalty. The courtyard and lakeside terrace both offer special outdoor dining experiences. There is even a casual, country-style dining room for when you’re in the mood for something informal.

There are 14 en suite, beautifully furnished bedrooms in the Chateau to choose from to accommodate up to 15 Guests at the base rental rate, with a supplemental charge for additional guests. Each is uniquely decorated in different color schemes ranging from azure to rose, and filled with antiques, crystal chandeliers and beds you never want to get out of! There is even a two-story master suite, with its own foyer, drawing room, and antique oak staircase leading up to a huge circular en suite bedroom that has an original hand-painted domed ceiling. (Four bedrooms can be made suitable for young children, and the Chateau will gladly prepare for young children and ensure that the “breakable” items are removed and the house is child friendly.)

There are also two apartments with 5 more bedrooms in a separate building that will accommodate up to 10 more people and are a 3-minute walk through the gardens from the Chateau. They are not decorated to the same standard as the Chateau, but they offer a very affordable way to have more people sleep on the estate at only €100 per night per apartment. The 2-bdrm will sleep 4 people; the 3-bdrm will sleep 6 people. There are also charming bed & breakfasts and hotels for many more Guests nearby.

Magical and AMAZING!

Rating Given: 5 Stars

I don't even know where to begin. The chateau is absolutely beautiful and the grounds are breathtaking! I rented the chateau for a week and had my wedding there. It was honestly a dream come true and a fairytale wedding. The food was SUPERB, the staff was extremely kind and helpful, and Susy is such an angel. My family and I had such an amazing time and were saddened to leave. The rooms are magnificent and so beautifully decorated, as are the dining and sitting rooms. Anything we needed or asked for, Susy and her staff accommodated us with (fans for each room, fly spray, instructions on how to use the oven, irons, etc). We all felt at home. I just want to thank Susy for her kindness and patience throughout everything. She found me the best wedding planner, Laura, whom I also cannot thank enough. Because of Susy, I was able to have the most unforgettable wedding and a wonderful vacation with my family and friends. This was a vacation/wedding we all can't and won't ever stop talking about.

Enchanting, Magical Stay

Rating Given: 5 Stars

From the moment we entered the property to the time we left, our group marveled at the beauty, mystique and care taken by the owner and staff to insure that our stay was no less than grand. The twelve en suite tastefully decorated guest suites provided comfortable and lush accommodations. Not to mention the delectable, beautifully prepared catered three course meals and afternoon tea. A special week spent back in time and an experience of a life-time. An author's dream, an artist's visual delight!

The Memory of a Lifetime

Rating Given: 5 Stars

The Chateau Allure Du Lac provided the perfect backdrop for a once in a lifetime experience. An absolutely magnificent property. Totally unique and steeped in history. Each room lavishly furnished in period decor and completely renovated so that all our guests were as comfortable as possible. The owner went way above and beyond to ensure our wedding experience was as perfectly orchestrated as possible.... from the exquisite cuisine to the hot water bottles in the beds at night. The staff was simply superb. I could not recommend a property or wedding venue more highly. A wonderful experience on every level! A place to make your fairytale come true.

Breathtaking Chateau & Stellar Service!!!

Rating Given: 5 Stars

There are no words to describe the beauty and charm of Chateau Allure Du Lac. The chateau is breathtaking and the service we experienced before during and after our stay would rival the finest hotels. My childhood dreams of living in a castle have been fulfilled and I was lucky enough to be a real life princess (or at last treated like one). My family and I visited the chateau in September for 3 days for my wedding and we have more than enough beautiful memories and photos to last us lifetime. When we arrived we were warmly greeted with french pastries and refreshments and given a complete tour of the grounds. The chateau is absolutely stunning and every single room has been decorated and restored to perfection. Each room has a fun theme, with the underlying detail being luxury!!! The sheets and towels were in spectacular condition and the beds were beyond comfortable. The inside of the chateau was marvelous, but it was the outside that really made your jaw drop. The lush trees that scattered the acres of parkland left us in awe, and the lake gave us chills it was so beautiful. I can’t imagine the upkeep on the chateau as it is massive but the staff makes it seem effortless and they always have a smile on their faces.

Speaking of the staff, I must begin with how spectral the service is! Susy the owner is the most enchanting woman I have ever met. Planning a wedding in a foreign country can be very difficult, but Susy helped me every step of the way. She patiently answered every email with great detail and frequently checked in with me via phone and email to make sure I didn’t have any questions. At the chateau she never ceased to amaze me as she waltzed around the chateau sharing precious memories and assuring me I would have the wedding of my dreams. Susy is not the only bright star in the group as Kitty and Doug were there to help with all of the last minute details and keep everyone in a chipper mood. I will miss their warm smiles, and never forget the moment when Doug provided a blessing for us within the chateau’s chapel.

Lastly, for the cherry on top I must praise the divine food. We chose to cater 3 of our meals at the chateau and each meal was comparable to one you would receive at a five star restaurant. My friends and family are still wildly raving about the delicious meals that we were served. The only downside of having such amazing provisions is I have a lot to live up to as my now husband has tasted some of the finest food in France!
