About the Property

Exquisitely decorated; catering available; elevator, WiFi & Excellent Review

Chateau Allure Du Lac is a luxurious, exquisitely decorated, 19th century chateau rental in a magnificent 105 acre estate located in the western part of the Loire Valley It is surely one of the most spectacular chateau rentals in France, offering a 22-acre private lake, lovely island, wonderful lakeside terrace, swimming pool, palatial lawns, gorgeous gardens and forests full of wildlife. With an elevator servicing all four floors, access to the reception rooms, dining rooms, chapel and the gorgeous en suite bedrooms available for Guests is easy. Open log fires, internet, wi-fi, and housekeeping and laundry services are also available.

Self-cater or we will prearrange delicious catering including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and full English afternoon tea, served in the dining rooms, gardens or on the lakeside terrace as you prefer.

There are lovely walks amongst the gardens, around the lake’s 2.5 kilometer shoreline, and through the woods. The swimming pool and adjacent pool house offer delightful relaxation in or out of the sun. Excellent carp fishing can be enjoyed in our lake. Wine tasting, golf, horseback riding, bicycling, river boat tours, museums, churches, restaurants and shopping are all nearby.


The Chateau is well situated just 20 minutes from Angers with its great shops and restaurants. Angers is 75 minutes from Paris via TGV, and the international airport in Nantes is about an hour away. There are many other delightful villages to visit nearby.

Enquiries from location agencies, location scouts and location managers are welcome as the Chateau is also available as a castle location rental for film, movie & television productions, TV series, commercials, and fashion shoots, etc., in the Loire Valley, France.

The Interior

The Chateau has been extensively renovated and sumptuously decorated with beautiful antiques and rich fabrics. Although majestic with its dramatic, double carved-stone stairway in the entrance hall, and elaborate 16.5 foot ceilings throughout the main floor, the Chateau is warm and welcoming. The Drawing Room is inviting with its oak paneling, huge log fireplace, and private lit terrace for early evening drinks and late night parties. The magnificent Grand Salon, with its parquet flooring, original oak linen paneling, tall windows, and massive mirrored fireplace mantle, offers a luxurious yet relaxed venue for gatherings both large and small. The Chapel, with its spectacular stone rib-vault ceiling, glorious stained-glass window, and gilded oak paneling is a consecrated haven for solitude and prayer.

The splendid Silver Reception Room floor was specifically designed for hosting parties, including elevator access for guests and hi-speed dumbwaiters connecting the Silver Reception Room’s service kitchen to the main kitchen two floors below. Aside from the Ballroom, there are numerous other places to dine in the Chateau, ranging from elegant to cozy. The Chateau’s delicious French specialties served in the Chatelain’s fabulous private dining room have Guests raving about the food and the superb candlelit tables fit for royalty. The courtyard and lakeside terrace both offer special outdoor dining experiences. There is even a casual, country-style dining room for when you’re in the mood for something informal.

There are 14 en suite, beautifully furnished bedrooms in the Chateau to choose from to accommodate up to 15 Guests at the base rental rate, with a supplemental charge for additional guests. Each is uniquely decorated in different color schemes ranging from azure to rose, and filled with antiques, crystal chandeliers and beds you never want to get out of! There is even a two-story master suite, with its own foyer, drawing room, and antique oak staircase leading up to a huge circular en suite bedroom that has an original hand-painted domed ceiling. (Four bedrooms can be made suitable for young children, and the Chateau will gladly prepare for young children and ensure that the “breakable” items are removed and the house is child friendly.)

There are also two nicely decorated apartments with 5 more bedrooms in the Chateau’s adjacent Manoir which will accommodate 10 more Guests for an additional rental fee of €100 per night per apartment, with charming bed & breakfasts and hotels for many more Guests nearby.

Car: Recommended

The chateau is close to Angers a vibrant University town with great shopping including Galleries Lafayette and lots of restaurants and activities. lt is also close to Le Lion d'Angers - about 15 mins away with shops, a good supermarket and is well known for its equestrian facilities, horse-racing and other horse shows, particularly the Mondial du Lion d'Angers world renown event in October. There a several other villages with good hairdressers, bakeries, internet cafes etc. There is a fabulous Relais Chateau approx. 20 mins from the Chateau that provides wonderful food overlooking the Loire itself. Closer by a well known brasserie that serves food which is both delicious and original. The charming old village of Grez Neuville is only 6 miles away and has a delightful Creperie on the river. There are boats to hire and barges to ride that serve lunch or dinner.

50 minutes away is Le Mans, world renowned for its Formula One racing, particularly Le Mans 24 hour race, in June.

The Loire Valley housed the aristocracy in their private chateaux during the summer in days gone by. Many now are museums. This is one of the rare chateaux which can be rented to vacationers and might well be the most up-to-date and sumptuous available to private families and small groups.
