Spoken languages


A Renaissance castle in the heart of the vineyards of the Coteaux de Laon.

Situated 20km southwest of Angers, in the heart of the vineyards of the Coteaux de Layon, the castle was built during the Renaissance in 1593, and the Wars of Religion justified the existence of defensive measures (a moat, draw-bridge, turrets…). The outbuildings of the same period, which include a fine barn/dovecote, can be used for receptions and seminars. The interior of the castle has kept its vast rooms, with their high ceilings and antique fireplaces. Two spacious rooms with original decoration have been transformed into modern bathrooms. We shall have the pleasure of warmly welcoming you and of sharing our family life in a chateau. You can enjoy the Renaissance park, the vineyards and the lake, suitable for walking and fishing. At breakfast and other meals, we offer you local produce from the estate, as well as local wines in keeping with the dishes.
