Overview

Grez-Neuville Castle Rental Photos and Description

Exquisitely decorated with 12 en suite bedrooms, elevator, wi-fi & great dining.

In General

Chateau Allure Du Lac is a 5-star, exquisitely decorated, 19th century chateau / castle in a magnificent 105 acre estate located in the western part of the Loire Valley. It has 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 12 gorgeous en suite bedrooms available for Guests is easy.

Enjoy delicious in-house dining, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and full English afternoon tea, served in the dining rooms, gardens or on the lakeside terrace as you prefer. Parties, seminars and weddings are welcome, including use of the original Chapel and the Silver Reception Room, and all services including photographer, hairdresser, flowers, etc. can be arranged. Open log fires, internet, wi-fi, and housekeeping & laundry services are also available.

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, horse racing and horseback riding are all nearby.

The Chateau / Castle 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.

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 it 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 or weddings, including elevator access for guests and hi-speed dumbwaiters connecting the Silver Receptions Room’s service kitchen to the main kitchen two floors below. Aside from the Silver Reception Room, 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 12 en suite, beautifully furnished bedrooms in the Chateau available to accommodate up to 15 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 is also a nicely decorated apartment in the Chateau’s adjacent Manoir which will accommodate up to 4 Guests (bringing the total capacity to 19 Guests) for an additional rental fee of €700 per week.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

Peaceful home from home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just spent a glorious week at this beautiful Chateau in the Loire. Not only did the sun shine on us but the hostess and the Chateau staff too. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and our comfort was their first concern.
-- This Chateau is lovely beyond belief. One steps out of ordinary life on arrival here. The peaceful scene and glorious lake views are spectacular whilst being very calming and serene.
The Chateau itself is decorated with imagination and colour, fitting the style beautifully and creating a romantic glimpse of the past. The outside is awe inspiring and the views from all the windows are wonderful. The bedrooms were as described and one is surprised that it is more beautiful than the pictures on the websites. Everyone slept incredibly well - even those who normally find sleep a problem. The peace washed over us.
The nearby town, Angers, is very attractive. It has many excellent places to dine. But the best and most superior meals were those provided at the Chateau by the staff. Really superb and the table settings were stunning, totally in keeping with the atmosphere and environment. I really cannot admire this gorgeous home enough. The owners makes it your home and we did not want to leave!

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5
...Truely we had such a wonderful time, an experience we will never forget!
my Mother organised for 16 of us (age ranges from 13 to 91!) to celebrate her 80th Birthday at the Chateau. We were welcomed and made to feel at home from the moment we arrived.
Days were spent walking around the lake viewing the wildlife, playing games and eating an amazing tea each day. Evenings were so very special, candlelit table wonderful food and as always kind and attentive care.
I could not recommend this location more, for a special holiday that you will never forget!
Thank you Suzy and everyone at Chateau Beuvriere

Magical Wedding In an Magical Chateau

  • 5 of 5
My Wife and our guests spent a week in this spectacular chateau and also had our small and intimate wedding blessing here. Words can't really describe the chateau itself or the owner as both are out of this world. We felt welcome immediately and very comfortable within the chateau and grounds.

The bedrooms are to die for and the best nights sleep we've all had in years. The food is first class cannot be faulted with a great variety of choice and flavours throughout the week. The staff are more than helpful and nothing is ever a problem we felt we could totally relax and enjoy our time here.

Our wedding was a small intimate event made extra special by Susy and some of her friends, We had this by the lake on the island and was perfect. Followed by an amazing wedding meal and then party on the terrace.

Susy herself made our stay even more of an magical experience than we ever thought was possible and for that we thank her hugely. We have found a friend for life and hope to enjoy many more weeks staying in the chateau.

Perfect place for family reunion

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 15 spend two wonderful weeks in early July at the magnificent chateau. Susi was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble to organise. The grounds and rooms of the chateau are simply stunning - with so much space to wander and explore. We had several evenings of eating in and the food prepared by Susi's team was superb. Casual barbeques and leisurely lunches by the lakeside were a particular favourite. Could not recommend a stay here more highly - we really look forward to having the chance to return.

Fabulous Experience

  • 5 of 5
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.

The chateau is close to Angers a vibrant University town with great shopping including Galleries Lafayette and lots of restaurants and activities. lt is also close to Le Lion d'Angers - about 15 mins away with shops, a good supermarket and is well known 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. There is a fabulous Relais Chateau approx. 20 mins from the Chateau that provides wonderful food overlooking the Loire itself. Closer by a well known brasserie that serves food which is both delicious and original. The charming old village of Grez Neuville is only 6 miles away and has a delightful Creperie on the river. There are boats to hire and barges to ride that serve lunch or dinner.

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.
