Christian Gjersoe purchased this chateau / country house in 2004

Why Christian Gjersoe chose Maine-et-Loire

Because it lives in its own secret world - far away from the busy life in the big Cities, highway's and so on.

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

We wanted to have space for our growing family - and we have spent many holidays here with friends and family.

The best place ever to recover anything.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The architecture of the house, the beautiful park and the quiet surroundings made us all fall in love with the place.

At La Douve we spend time together - not distracted from noise a and busy city life.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Perfect place to spend the holidays!

We spend 14 days in this beautiful place. And we could easily stay another 14 days! The castle has everything you need, and the surroundings is breathtaking. Close to shopping and food markets. We will come back!

Exceptionnel, cadre splendide dans ce chateau

  • 5 of 5

Lieu ideal pour une reunion de famille dans un cadre prestigieux permettant d organiser des jeux dans le parc et une soiree raffinee ou l ambiance chateau donne une atmosphere magique. Les chambres esuopees chacune d une sdb est un atout majeur de cette demeure qui offre un cadre hotelier de prestige . L accueil et le service va de paire, il est excellent, a quoi s ajoute la bienveillanse du proprietaire et de Nathalie. Nous pensons relouer en septembre l annee prochaine. Il est rare de trouver un cadre ausdi beau offrant le confort et une telle quietude pour un week end en famille.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolute wonderful stay at beautiful La Douve that more than lived up to our expectations. The well-restored rooms and beautiful surroundings made our holiday very special. We brought two children aged 3 and 5 and our only concern was the swimming pool, that turned out to be sorrounded by a fence when we arrived - so no need to worry about the children accessing the pool area without supervision. We would definitely recommend this property and are coming back ourselves next year.
