Description

CHATEAU

Initially built in the 15th century as a priory (small detached abbey for a dozen monks), at a time when they could choose the best environment (and view!), it has been enlarged in the following century.

The main floor has a drawing-room (with high quality stereo), desk-room (with high speed internet connection, fax and printer), dining-room and kitchen. It has been redone in the late 18th century, with wood paneling and wood floor. It is decorated with antiques and paintings. The drawing-room overlooks the valley and its lake. The dining-room has view over the gardens and park. The basement has kept its original Salle basse (large kitchen) and salle de gardes of the 15th century with beamed ceiling, tile floor and huge chimneys. The upper floor has 6 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and a library equipped with video, DVD and CD equipment, with lots of DVD'S,CD'S , books, board games and puzzles.

Our stay at La Chauviniere

  • 5 of 5

Our 10 day stay at La Chauviniere was unparalleled! The chateau and cottage accommodation was exceptional and the property was beautifully maintained: a wonderful combination of formal gardens and the outlying areas very natural. The owner was most helpful and the managers of the property very accommodating. This personal attention to every detail made our stay truly memorable.

Owner's Response: My guests where very appreciative of the historic character of the chateau and its decoration with antiques, as well as the comfort and amenities available. They enjoyed the vast surroundings of gardens, lake and park, but also the touristic possibilities around, with the Chateaux, small villages and restaurants of the Loire valley. And they've been delightful guests! Thierry Voulet
