Christian Gjersoe purchased this chateau / country house in 2004

It's the most wonderful hide away you can ever dream of.

A wonderfull stay at Chateau de la Douve

Christian,
I just wanted to send a quick thank you for the wonderful experience our group enjoyed during our visit to Chateau de la Douve. We greatly enjoyed our travel experience in the Loire Valley and surrounding areas. The trip was made complete by the gracious hospitality extended by Dominique. He literally became a part of our group, sharing with us the local culture, acting as tour guide, assisting with insights on the region, introducing us to others living nearby, and generally just befriending a group of foreigners as we attempted to enjoy the wonderful Chateau and French region. I will continue to consider Dominique among my friends.

Thank you Chateau de la Douve.

Thank you Chateau de la Douve.

We can definitely recommend a week or two or more at Chateau de la Douve, in the lovely little village of Le Bourg-d'Ire, Maine-et-Loire, France.

In September, 23 of us travelled from Australia for 10 glorious days at the chateau and it certainly lived up to its reputation. 

The local taxi company in Noyant-La-Gravoyere met our train at Angers and delivered us to the chateau and promptly returned us at the end of our stay.
Our bedrooms and en-suites were spacious, comfortable and of a very high standard. The beautiful appointed reception rooms and salons, well equipped kitchens, laundry, drying room, outdoor terrace, bbq, gym and swimming pool met all our needs.  Fruit from the chateau's orchard kept us well stocked as did the village's local boulangerie where we had a daily standing order of beautiful croissants, baguettes and fruit tarts for desserts.  
What more could we ask for?

Laurent, Natalie and staff from the local restaurant "Relais de la Verzee" came to the chateau on a couple of occasions during our stay to cook and serve us scrumptious 3 course dinners. Magnifique!!

Mark Hayes Fisher- the chateau's terrific manager.. No matter how many emails, queries and requests we made .. nothing was too difficult for him, he made sure everything ran smoothly.
He certainly made our stay very enjoyable and  so memorable.  
A big thank you Mark from all of us.

And finally thanks Christian for giving us the opportunity to stay in your beautiful chateau.

Our group highly recommends a Chateau de la Douve experience.... Memories to last a life time!!

Chris -Melbourne, Australia.

A so beautiful and charming castle

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 20, 2010

We stayed there during 1 week with our family and we had a so great time ! We were 17 people, from 18 months to 79 yearls old and we did not use all the comfortable ensuite bedrooms.
The castle is really beautiful and imposing, with a charming atmosphere. It offers so many facilities : we enjoyed the breakfast and diner in an impressive dining room with long table and candelabras, the lunch on the nice terrace, the sun at the large swimming pool, sport in a big weights room, playing billiard or table tennis, watching a movie with the surround system or simply walking and visiting the huge garden.
Christian -the landlord-, Mark -the manager-, with Rita, and Elisabeth -the cook- made our holidays fantastic.
Thanks a lot for your warm welcome, we will plan to come back !
All our best wishes
