Great vacation with friends and family!
Our family met up with 3 other families to share the Chateau for a week. It was a fabulous way to spend time together and explore the Loire Valley. William and Susy made our stay easy and fun by recommending local activities and coordinating two evenings of catered meals. I highly recommend this property. It’s a idyllic property and has several on-site activities. We utilized the pool almost every day with the kids.
Lovely week enjoyed by all
A great week w 7 couples ( very old friends). Château was as advertised in a beautiful setting. Most of the time we spent outdoors but the dining rooms were extremely elegant and the bedrooms all very comfortable. William responded instantly if issues arose ( and they almost never did) Both he and Susy are charming and very welcoming and bent over backwards This place is in the countryside so cars are essential. But the roads - while narrow - are very easy to navigate. A very special week. Do NOT miss Angers, the fortress and especially the tapestry. Quite literally one of the most incredible works of art I’ve ever seen. Thanks again to our hosts!!
An unforgettable class reunion at Chateau Allure du Lac
We just spent an absolutely fabulous week celebrating a business school reunion. Our group of twenty-three was astounded by the beauty of the chateau and the warm welcome we received from our hosts, Susy and William. We celebrated our arrival with champagne in the lovely courtyard before a gourmet meal in one of the beautiful dining rooms. The rooms, each with their own bathroom, were spacious and beautifully decorated. We awakened each morning to a breakfast of assorted pastries, croissants, baguettes, fresh fruit and yogurts served in a charming breakfast room. The elevator made the four floors of the chateau easily accessible. The setting, with its lovely gardens and lake, was serene. Susy and William were extremely accommodating and helped make our reunion an unforgettable experience. Our only complaint is that we had to leave!
We have rented well over a dozen of properties for vacations with friends, this was by far the best experience we have ever had.
Amazing wedding venue
If you are looking for a magical setting for your wedding, this is the place! Susy and William will answer all of your questions/concerns immediately and their suggestions for caterer/officiant/entertainment were spot on. The grounds are gorgeous with plenty to do, whether you want to relax and walk around the lake or head into town to explore. It was a wonderful week we will never forget. In May, the Chateau can be a little chilly but it adds to the nostalgic feel of this dreamy setting.
Live like Royalty in the Loire Valley
Our family/friends reunion was a most spectacular event shared at the majestic Chateau Allure du Lac in the Loire Valley, France. En suite bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of hot water. An elevator allows easy access to top floor bedrooms. Several sitting rooms allow for groups to visit, play cards or read. The grounds are gorgeous and a walk around the lake was our perfect start to the morning. Set out in the countryside, the peacefulness of living in a Castle was magical. Close by is a large supermarket for all your shopping needs if you choose to cook for your group. Owners Suzy and William were the most delightful and attentive hosts. Always around to help and assist. Highly recommend for a stunning unforgettable experience.
A Fairy tale Wedding
We had our wedding (including a 3-night stay) at Chateau Allure du Lac, and our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! The property was absolutely enchanting, and Susy were equally incredible as our hosts. They respected our privacy, but were always around if we had a question or needed anything at all.
The rooms are exquisitely decorated and the land is beautifully maintained. It's the perfect venue for a wedding, or any other event you may choose to have. Our stay was unforgettable, and we hope to go back soon!
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.
