MANOIR DE CHALANDES

La Bouexiere Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Badminton, boules and croquet can all be played at the Chateau

Originating from the 14th century, the Manor de Chalandes is renowned for its astonishing private gardens on the edge of the Loire, Brittany and the River Villaine. The Manor even has its own spa and is a rare treat for those who enjoy pure relaxation and style. Interestingly, the Manor de Chalandes was once a safe house during the 2nd World War. It stood centrally to the French Resistance movement lead by Marie Moquet.

The Manor de Chalandes is ideal for parties, anniversaries, weddings, clay pigeon shoots, marvellous banquets and world class dinners with the region's best wines to accompany them. Stay for a day, a weekend or longer. Michelle, the owner, is a superb host and will make sure you are well catered for during your stay.

The famous gardens at the Manor de Chalandes were designed by a leading landscape gardener to the Queen called Alan Manson. Mason wanted to create a vision of royalty that would survive all seasons. There are over 10,000 species of plants and flowers, many that are both rare and exotic. Parts of the gardens are open to the public. However, the gardens are so vast that they do not interfere with your holiday experience or privacy.

Please note that the property can accommodate groups of up to 20 when hiring the neighbouring cottage in conjunction with the manor. It can sleep up to 4 in 2 double rooms and is available for €100 per night.

Sleeping a maximum of 16 guests, Manor de Chalandes offers 8 double rooms. All rooms have an individual charm reflected in their name. With crisp white linen, feather pillows, bathrobes and high-class toiletries, you will be sure to feel pampered, relaxed and sleep well. Extra beds are available on request should you have small children.

The main centre of activity is the salon. As with most rooms in the Manoir this features huge beams and a stone fireplace, as well as stunning views over the Rose Garden. Steps lead on to the terrace that overlooks the formal lawns and lake, always a popular place for cocktails or after dinner drinks.

The ‘salle-à-manger' is now how it would have been in the 15th century with exposed stone walls and floor, massive oak dining tables and access to the main tower (now the bar). There is an arched doorway through to the library, formerly the coach-house, but now used as a conference room with all modern communication facilities. There is also a kitchen on the ground floor however catering can be provided.

The Romanesque heated spa pool is situated in the centre of the barn buildings. Seating at least 12, this hand crafted mosaic construction is unique in France. The gardens have attracted visitors from all over the world, many comparing its beauty to that of Monet’s garden near Paris, and remains open to the public at various times of the year. Guests of the Manoir de Chalandes have privileged free access to the gardens. The grounds of this Manor are secure and safe and not close to any main road making it an ideal place for children. There is plenty of outside space with several gardens waiting to be explored. Sports on offer include badminton, boules, and croquet as well as fishing and rafting in the nearby lake.

Please note that the property can accommodate groups of up to 20 when hiring the neighbouring cottage in conjunction with the manor. It can sleep up to 4 in 2 double rooms and is available for €100 per night.

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateaux rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Home for a week pre-wedding.

  • 4 of 5
This chateau was our home for a week in April. We were 19 people, and we found the place to be perfect for our crew. Making some meals was great with all the dishes and utensils a person could ever want. The huge dinning table was fabulous and the sitting room was quite comfortable. The gardens are just beautiful. We felt like we were at a country retreat. The people on site were helpful and never intrusive but were available when ever we had questions or needed anything. We all absolutely loved the wildlife that roam the property including the hens, cats, dogs, donkey and ponies...all adorable and well behaved...well, maybe not the white geese so much...they had an attitude., but they seemed to warm to us as the week went on. The chateau is clean...but i would call it shabby chic...not opulent. But it felt homey and lived in. You felt comfortable to relax and unwind. My only complaint and it was a problem for a couple of our guests was the dampness that is understandable with a stone building of this age, there is bound to be a problem for alergy sufferers...it was spring and all of Brittany was sprouting so this too could have added to the problem. Just something to expect if renting at this time of year. We did enjoy two of the fireplaces everyday to take the dampness off. In the end, all of our party agreed that it was a perfect spot for our build up to the wedding. I would love to go back in a month and see the gardens in full bloom. It was magical in mid-April so i can only imagine by the first of June. Dealing with Michelle was easy and we would go back again in a minute...I wish! Although I never used the hottub, others in our party did and thoroughly enjoyed it too. The surrounding area is just lovely...expecially in spring. So two thumbs up for this place.
