I am a writer and beneficiary of this chateau.

Susy purchased this chateau / country house in 2001

Was not bought as a vacation rental but as a heavenly retreat from a very busy life!

Utter peace and tranquility in the most glorious spot. Set in true French countryside, you can benefit from complete privacy and are only 20 minutes away from the vibrant University town of Angers with great shops and good restaurants. There is a Relais Chateau nearby, a fabulous bistro down the road and a creperie on the river in our village. Lots to do, and many activities can be arranged such as horseriding, fishing, paint ball, archery, etc. The site itself is a piece of heaven, with its amazing lake, wonderful wildlife and a fairytale chateau that is enchanting with an unbeatable atmospehere. In spite of its grandeur its wonderful for children who have the time of their lives! Most chateaux have not been renovated to the luxurious level of this chateau, with a lift to all floors, 12 gorgeous ensuite bedrooms, superb salons with roaring fires in the winter. The windows, the double stone staircase, theoriginal chapel, the romance of it all is compelling. There is nothing cold about this chateau, it's warmth and sheer comfort enfolds you...

Fabulous Experience

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 26, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
Having planned this trip for quite some time we did not know what to expect when we arrived at the Chateau. From the minute we walked through the door our vacation took on a whole new dimension that was a once in a lifetime experience. Suzy not only welcomed us with open arms but shared her beautiful home in a manner fit for royalty. The food, ambiance and environment lent itself to a memorable vacation. We toured the beautiful countryside, had a picnic by the lake and found it to be the perfect spot to spend time with family.
I would recommend this Chateau to anyone interested in being in the Loire Valley. It would be very difficult to find anything that matches the serenity, beauty and gracefulness of this lovely Chateau and its mistress.

Glorious Chateau in the Loire / Fantastic Holiday

  • Submitted: Oct 8, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2012
Having stayed at this glorious chateau, being an outdoor person I absolutely loved it. The swimming pool was fantastic and its setting sublime. You can lunch at the pool, there are ample tables, chairs and recliners. The lakeside terrace was a dream on a 22 acre lake. The wildlife is prolific. Sitting in the evenings with a good glass of wine, and reclining on the comfy chaises longue’s with every comfort makes it truly a 5 star location.

Being quite a gourmand, I thought the food delicious and very well presented. Breakfast on the terrace was sublime, we had a variety of really excellent choices, with the best French toast I have ever tasted, along with a variety of pancakes, smoked salmon, eggs any style and delicious hot breads. The dinners were first class and served in a stunning dining room by candlelight with fine china and crystal, quite a change from the norm. The best home cooking I have tasted and the service fast.

Well done to all the staff, they are fun, friendly and very helpful. They obviously love working there. The new cook is first rate and her homemade chocolate brownie's simply to die for. I am definitely going to go back

Fun weekend

  • Submitted: Oct 8, 2012
  • Stayed: Feb 2012
A group of us (12) turned up to the Chateau for a fun and fairly wild weekend amid a beatiful setting and some grandeur. The Chateau met all expectations. It was decorated as a home would be with thought and care. It was very clean and the rooms were well prepared and in excellent condition. The building itself certainly impresses and the grounds are extensive, with a large lake.

Without question however the most charming part of our stay was our hostess, Susy, who was by the end of the weekend adored by our whole group. She also had to very friendly assitants who made our stay all the more enjoyable, and were very easy going considering the place was surrounded by old (and probably valuable) paintings, chairs, glasses etc.

The Breakfasts were delicious!

A wonderful Loire fairytale

  • Submitted: Oct 8, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2012
Rarely does one find a jewel in the rough, but amongst all the many acres of Loire greenery there is just the trick to do away with the blues of city life.

My family and I (8 of us in total) spent an amazing week at this chateau near the small town of Grez Neuville, and we enjoyed every minute of it. The property's owner, the quirky and charming Susy, made our stay memorable from the outset, and her home cooking was, as a pleasant surprise, of a very high standard (for home cooking, that is!) Definitely worth dining in a couple of times if you have the chance.

Though the chateau is vast to say the least, and the heating took a while to get going, the place radiated with warmth due to Susy's attention to detail. From the exquisite antique furniture positioned perfectly throughout the chateau, to the fresh warm croissants served every morning, Susy did everything to make our stay in the Loire a very memorable one.

I look forward to returning soon, and recommend this chateau to anyone who is looking to visit the Loire for a week of food, wine and relaxation.

Well done Susy, 10 out of 10!

Kindest regards,

Alex & Marianna (and the family)

I have just spent 6 wonderful days in a beautiful part of France, in a really lovely Chateau. The ambience I loved, the furnishings were just beautiful. It was like living in an exquisite home for a few days. The surroundings are just out of this world – the lake, the lovely gardens, the owls at night. It provided an outstanding setting for an amazing celebration. I’d love to return sometime soon.

The Chateau du Lac is close to the charming village of Le Lion d'Angers, with shops, supermarket and famous for its equestrian facilities, horse-racing and other horse shows, particularly the Mondial du Lion d'Angers world renown event in October. There a several other villages with good hairdressers, bakeries, internet cafes etc. Angers a vibrant University Town is 25 mins from the Chateau with great shops, Galleries Lafayette etc.restaurants,concerts and nightlife. Relais Chateau fab. restaurant approx. 15 mins from the Chateau.

Other activities arranged by the chateau are: 'Paintball','Archery,' and a host of nature sports proved by Anjou Nature Sports.' Horse riding,fishing and clay pigeon shooting.

50 minutes away is Le Mans, world renowned for its Formula One racing, particularly Le Mans 24 hour race, in June.

The Loire Valley housed the aristocracy in their private chateaux during the summer in days gone by. Many now are museums. This is one of the rare chateaux which can be rented to vacationers and might well be the most up-to-date and sumptuous available to private families and small groups. Internet and delicious in house dining.
