Magnificent Loire Valley chateau with heated pool - Built in the late 1800s at the heart of the Vienne region, among extensive century-old woodland and splendid landscaped gardens, this is an enchanting fairy tale castle just a short walk from the small village of Lencloitre and within easy access of Poitiers’ airport and the Loire Valley.
As you approach the gate of the property flanked by two turrets, you know you are about to enter a magical world. Enjoy the authentic, sophisticated atmosphere of a typical French chateau, elegantly furnished with some period furniture yet equipped with all modern comforts to suit modern luxury living. Each of the individually appointed bedrooms enjoys lovely views over the idyllic private grounds, featuring many secluded spots where one can soak up the enticing beauty of the natural surroundings, populated by red squirrels and ducks from the chateau's private lake.
This region is known for its inspiring landscape of rolling countryside with river valleys and forested hills dotted with wine cellars offering visitors wine tasting tours. Poitiers, the main city of the Poitou Charente, is only 18 miles away from the chateau and boasts a daily covered market as well as beautiful historic buildings, restaurants and small cafes. Chauvigny and Montmorillon are two splendid Medieval towns hosting lively cultural events throughout the summer months. Should you prefer wildlife, the Vallee de Singe Park, a zoological park for primates, would make an ideal destination for a day trip. Alternatively, Lake St Cyr is the right choice if you fancy practising some water sports or just hire a pedalo and enjoy the views of the lake and its surroundings.
What a perfect place to get away from it all! Set in a parkland with woodland behind, this gorgeous chateau is an ideal bolthole and so accessible being only half-an-hour away from Poitiers airport. Futuroscope, one of France's top attractions, water sports, golf, horse-riding, wine tasting and French city shopping at its best are all within a short drive. Or laze by the pool, enjoy the park in this hidden corner that even the locals don't know about. A very special place for the perfect holiday.
