    About this property

    This elegant country chateau in the Loire Valley will help you return to your senses. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast in the modern open kitchen, then wander the 450 acre estate. You can fish or boat on the lake, or hop on a bicycle to explore the French countryside. On Saturday the market at Noyen-sur-Sarthe will introduce you to Loire Valley specialties - keep an eye out for cheese, tarte Tatin, and sablés (the preferred biscuit).
    Back at your family chateau there’s plenty of entertainment for the kids: games, toys, bicycles, an all-weather tennis court, and a private pool. Inside, the 9 bedrooms are each decorated to a theme, and 3 of them have the added privacy of en suite bathrooms, some with elegant roll top bathtubs.
    Just a 20 minute drive from Le Mans, this holiday chateau offers an unparalleled balance of country delights and access to the city. If you miss the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race, you can learn all about it at the museum. Le Mans is blessed with gorgeous Roman walls, and winding medieval roads filled with fine boutiques and restaurants. Come discover the sensory delights of Loire Valley from this splendid chateau.
