A perfect location for a large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Ever been on holiday/honeymoon for a week in the same house with a few different families totalling 18 adults, 2 toddlers, 3 dogs, 6 cars and approximately 42liters of champagne? For some it sounds like perfect bliss, for others, a complete nightmare. With a bit of planning and a great bunch of people, I can safely say that it turned out as perfect bliss.

While thinking about how we were going to go about this adventure we explored a few ideas - a centerparcs type holiday with multiple cabins, but that would mean cabins rather than chateau grounds. We explored a much larger property surrounded by vinyards with a 3km drive way tucked away in the hills - but what about those not driving who wanted to potter around. The idea was to have a central base where we could all come together but in a location where we could each have a mini holiday.

After a while lotta search parameters and filters, I came across Chateau De La Bergeliere in a small town called La Flocelliere in the Loire Valley.

It was a match made in heaven.

With rolling grounds, tennis courts, a pool, woodland and enough luxury rooms to contain us all AND the added fact that it is so central that the entire town surrounds the castle grounds it seemed perfect. Then, I took to street view, there I found a restaurant, two pubs, a grocer and patisserie shop. Done!

We had a perfect week away and on one of the days my partner and I were married in a small garden ceremony beneath the tree! François, the home owner, was fantastically helpful - he recommended a wonderful Chef (ask Francois for Noel's details!) who came in and cooked and served an excellent meal that we truly loved.

In all, it was a perfect week made ever more perfect in such a beautiful location!

Francois, your home is beautiful, thank you so much for sharing it!

Merveilleux WE

  • 5 of 5

Une très jolie propriété au coeur du village, très bon accueil.

Nous étions 17 ( 9 enfants et 8 adultes), chambres sont très confortables, lits faits à l'arrivée, linge de maison fourni.

Grande cuisine familiale et bien équipée.

Tout près du Puy du fou.

Un grand parc dont nous n'avons malheureusement pas assez profité (tennis, piscine) car notre programme était très chargé.

Dîner samedi soir avec un chef à domicile que nous recommandons, très sympathique.

Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.

Une nuit au château, paisible et accueillant

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons apprécié notre nuit au château de la Bergelière.

Un endroit calme, reposant et chargé d'histoire qui mérite qu'on s'y attarde plus longtemps.

Un séjour à recommander pour un Week-end ou plus en amoureux ou en famille.

Une réunion de famille réussie

  • 5 of 5

Les prestations proposées étaient conformes en tous points à ce qui a été annoncé : le confort, l’aménagement et la propreté des chambres, la cuisine fonctionnelle et un petit salon bien agréable en soirée.

Le temps ensoleillé nous a permis de profiter du parc magnifique. Nous avons pu bénéficier de la terrasse pour nos repas et la piscine a fait le bonheur quotidien des petits-enfants.

Le lieu a été particulièrement apprécié de tous. C’est avec grand plaisir que nous avons l’intention d’y revenir.

Simply Perfect, a dream

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely castle for our Wedding for about three days. The castle owner were realy welcoming. We had access to all the castle rooms and could celabrate the wedding in a really beautiful environment. The owner didn´t stay during our stay and this allowed us and the guests to feel like home. We enjoyed the swimming pool and the barbecue a lot. We celebrated our wedding in the garden with about 160 guest. I can only recommand you this castle in a beautiful and quiet city. All our guest were delighted!

Pour apprecier pleinement la vie de chateau à deux pas du Puy du Fou !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été absolument ravis de notre séjour d'une semaine au chateau de la Bergeliere. En été, le parc est absolument magnifique et tellement bien entretenu, la piscine (15*5m, nouvellement installée en été 2016) a été particulièrement appréciée, on peut aussi profiter d'un terrain de tennis, d'un terrain de volley et la taille du parc permet meme de jouer au football ou au base ball !

L'intérieur du chateau est non seulement beau mais aussi aménagé de manière très fonctionnelle. Il y a 7 salles de bain. Nous avons pu manger tous les 21 dans la cuisine et sur la terrasse. Et, à 21, on peut profiter de beaux moments de convivialité tout en ayant un grand degré d'intimité.

Nos ado se sont tellement plus qu'ils ne voulaient plus quitter le chateau !

Le puy du fou est à une dizaine de km et vaut a lui seul le voyage. A 5 min a pied du chateau il y a une superette et une boulangerie.

Coté prix, si vous êtes une vingtaine, la location du chateau ne vous reviendra pas plus cher que la location de gites standard qui auraient une piscine et un grand jardin.

Bref, à faire et à refaire !

The Vendee has marked French history with its wars of the same name during the French Revolution. The confrontation between rebel peasants (known as "Whites") and revolutionary troops (known as "Blues") lasted several years, caused several hundred thousand deaths and left a lasting mark on Vendean imagination. La Bergeliere is situated in the heart of the hedged farmland of the Vendee, territory of the military Vendee. The inhabitants of the Vendee attach a lot of importance to their culture and history. The Puy-du-Fou, nearby, reveals a great part of the history of the Vendee to the audience; the "Cinescenie" is the biggest night show in the world: 1.200 actors wear 8.000 costumes and perform in front of you on a 23ha stage! The Grand Parc du Puy-du-Fou, during the day, takes you on a journey through time, from the antiquity to the modern era, through its recreated villages and amazing shows.
