For some it sounds like perfect bliss, for others, a complete nightmare. With a bit of planning and a great bunch of people, I can safely say that it turned out as perfect bliss. While thinking about how we were going to go about this adventure we explored a few ideas - a centerparcs type holiday with multiple cabins, but that would mean cabins rather than chateau grounds. We explored a much larger property surrounded by vinyards with a 3km drive way tucked away in the hills - but what about those not driving who wanted to potter around. The idea was to have a central base where we could all come together but in a location where we could each have a mini holiday. After a while lotta search parameters and filters, I came across Chateau De La Bergeliere in a small town called La Flocelliere in the Loire Valley. It was a match made in heaven. With rolling grounds, tennis courts, a pool, woodland and enough luxury rooms to contain us all AND the added fact that it is so central that the entire town surrounds the castle grounds it seemed perfect. Then, I took to street view, there I found a restaurant, two pubs, a grocer and patisserie shop. Done! We had a perfect week away and on one of the days my partner and I were married in a small garden ceremony beneath the tree! François, the home owner, was fantastically helpful - he recommended a wonderful Chef (ask Francois for Noel's details!) who came in and cooked and served an excellent meal that we truly loved. In all, it was a perfect week made ever more perfect in such a beautiful location! Francois, your home is beautiful, thank you so much for sharing it!

We were a party if eight and were met at the appointed time by the charming owners who showed us round . The kitchen was equipped with every possible appliance even down to filters for the coffee machine , everything spotless. The television had programmes in French Spanish and English and the table in the lounge even had English magazines to welcome us. All of the bedrooms were spacious and airy with big comfy beds. Outside the garden has boules , skittles , table tennis and badminton . When we came to get our luggage we even found a wheeled trolley to carry the cases the short distance from the cars. This was once a cowshed but has been converted into a wonderful holiday home by a charming couple . It more than lives up to the description on the website and we would all recommend this to friends and relatives . The area is very peaceful , Chateauneuf is around a mile away and is home to a colony of storks which regularly flew over us whilst we ate on the terrace.It has a general store , open on a Sunday , with most things you need.Challans is around 8 miles away with supermarkets for the bigger shop.

The house is lovely, clean, modern, very well maintained and extremely comfortable. The pictures are a good representation of the accommodation. The rooms were spacious and the owners have provided everything you could possibly need, even down to things like hand wash and dishwasher tablets which are things that are often not provided, but really make a difference when you are living out of a suitcase. Children are well catered for too - our 4 year old daughter loved the play area with swings, climbing frame and slide, as well as the indoor games and child friendly bedroom. The garden and outside areas are really lovely, with plenty of space and lots of chairs, loungers and dining facilities that are again, all good quality and very well maintained. Equally the bikes and helmets (of which there are many) were a great addition, and we thoroughly enjoyed the use of them. However, the jewel in the crown is the indoor pool which is fabulous. The weather wasn't always great during our stay, but with the indoor pool it didn't matter and we used it every day. As with everything else, it is high spec and well maintained. The villa's location is also very good. The villa is slightly set back from the road, in a nice peaceful location. Cross the road and you can walk along the rocky coast line. Nice, sandy beaches are a reasonable bike ride away in either direction. There are also some great woodland and coastal walks nearby and Jard is well geared up for cyclists, with lots of cycle routes to explore on. The town and harbour are both a 5 minute cycle ride or about a 20 minute walk away. There are a number of nice restaurants in and around the harbour area, a good selection of shops in the centre and there is a large Supermarket a 5 minute car ride away. Nicolas, the owner, is very helpful, considerate and prompt at replying to any questions that I had. In summary, if you are looking for a peaceful, relaxing holiday with everything on your doorstop in a home from home setting then look no further. I can't recommend this place enough. Thank you Nicolas and Christelle.
