Overview

Photos and Description of this 16 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Savigny-Levescault - Chateau de St Jean

Large holiday chateau - perfect for family reunions & events

The imposing 12th Century Chateau de St Jean is surrounded by 56 acres of maintained grounds and lies nestled just south of the Loire Valley, surrounded by numerous features of the period and region including countless hidden away Roman ruins, abbeys and picturesque villages. The oldest part of the Chateau de St Jean itself was constructed on Roman ruins, to be later expanded during the 16th and 19th Centuries.

The Chateau de St Jean has 16 bedrooms and would make an ideal venue for a function such as a wedding or anniversary event, being able to accommodate up to 34 people in comfort. 9 further full sized single beds and 2 children’s cots can be added with ease to expand accommodation to cater for up to 45 guests.

You enter the chateau to a large entrance hall offering access to 4 reception rooms including a kitchen equipped with a large dishwasher. The office on the ground floor provides an internet access point for guests. There is also a downstairs WC on this floor.

The first floor contains a music room (an entertainment room equipped with a DVD and video cassette recorder) and a library. The floor also has 3 bedrooms (each with en suite bathroom facilities) with double, twin and single bed configurations.

Three bedrooms on the second floor come complete with en suite washing facilities (2 with double beds and one with twin beds). There are also 3 further bedrooms on this floor, 2 with full sized double beds and one with twin beds.

The third floor houses 3 luxurious suites. The first suite has two bedrooms, each with full sized double beds, a small reception room and en suite bathroom. The second suite also has two bedrooms (one with a double bed, one twin bed room) and an en suite bathroom, while the third suite also has two bedrooms with full sized double beds, a small sitting room and en suite bathroom; both bedrooms have double beds. There is an additional double bedroom on this floor with an en suite bathroom.

The estate lies within 56 acres of tranquil gardens and parkland. The estate is located behind gated and secured walls and as such offers excellent security for large groups with children. The gravel driveway extending up to the front of the chateau provides a serene and idyllic setting for an afternoon cocktail and game of boules in the sun. Sun loungers and outdoor furniture together with a BBQ are available for outdoor use by guests.

A distinctive feature of the chateau is the substantial number of outbuildings that comprise the estate that can be used for an assortment of functions and events. The Orangerie accommodates up to 100 people and can be used for seminars and receptions. The Anciennes Ecuries can seat up to 20 people and can be used for seminars and catered events. For catered occasions the facility comes with WCs, a catering kitchen and separate parking area for non-resident guests.

About Oliver's Travels - France

Guestbook comments from the manager

After an incredible stay at this most magical Chateau I can honestly say that myself and all my friends had the best weekend ever. The grounds were enticing and the Chateau was as grand as it was magnificent.



With so many original features and secret passage ways we were invited into a weekend of fantasy and adventure. Our lovely chef Corrine cooked us up a feast and our hostess with the mostess Tiphaine ensured we has everything we could possibly need at our disposal. I believe the local bistro became part of the birthday celebrations too and it's proprietor was helpful and accmodating. A return visit will be planned and I recommend the Chateau to everyone.....families, couples, weddings and all. Thank you for a great 40th birthday x

So good I rented it twice

  • 5 out of 5
Chateau St. Jean is comfortable and elegant. I brought a group of artists here twice and every one of them is still talking about it. There is lots of room so that even a large group has space to get away from the crowd. The grounds are also huge. I particularly enjoyed the kitchen which is well equipped and in scale with the rest of the estate (it's big!). The location is handy as the road system will take you quickly in any direction. The most interesting direction is north to the Loire. There are a couple of beautiful valleys that take you there. A visit to some of the winerys in the area is highly recommended.The owners provided good directions from Paris but study the maps well as it is very easy to miss a turn. Poitiers is very close and I recommend dropping your rental car there and taking the train back to Paris. The car agencies are next to the train station (mostly) and the train goes directly to Charles DeGaulle airport. Book ahead though. It couldn't be easier. Rent your car at Orly airport on the south side of Paris for a convienient and short ride to the Chateau. Sincerely, Wade

Poitiers

The nearest airport is Poitiers just 15km away and the chateau lies on the village of St. Julien l'Ars. This spacious Chateau lies in the centre of the ancient French kingdom of Poitou, a picturesque region close to the Loire Valley that is rich in history and nature.

The capital city of Poitiers, a short drive away from the chateau, is steeped in history and provides guests with numerous opportunities for day trips and chances to explore the narrow medieval streets and churches of the town. The town is home to some 3rd Century church ruins that should be missed. The coastal town of La Rochelle is a short journey away; as are the golden beaches of favoured celebrity resort the Ile de Re. The celebrated vineyards of Cognac and the Loire Valley are also very close by and open to tours and tasting sessions.
