Château de Villejovet
Château de Villejovet is located in Ardentes about 15 km southeast of Chateauroux south of the Loire Valley. It is surrounded by a beautiful green landscape with meadows, yellow rape fields and charming vineyards. From Ardentes there is about 100 km to Tours and Blois, the two best known and most exciting cities in the area.
The castle was originally built in the 17th century and was previously owned by the de Gaulle administration. Today it is Danish-owned. From 1998-2001 the castle was modernized and refurbished from top to bottom and is now an impressive and exclusive holiday property that is definitely worth a visit. All the suites and bathrooms have modern facilities of Scandinavian standard.
Château de Villejovet is situated in a 6 hectare grand park right down to the river Indre. The park surroundings consist of approx. 300 hectare natural landscape which is suitable for horse riding or walking. Furthermore guests have fishing permission along 3 km of the river, so you have plenty of opportunity to find your ideal spot for fishing. As a part of the renovation, an outdoor swimming pool with wave machine has been built (heated at costs during the summer).
The decor of the massive 1,000 m² castle is tasteful and a combination of old and new, ancient and modern Scandinavian style, and ranging from old creaking stairs and manual food lift to a modern floodlit park and leather furniture. The living area also provides you with a choice. For example, do you want to eat dinner in the Provencal kitchen or in the fantastic, atmospheric wine cellar, where up to 40 people can dine? The choice is yours. Even the bedrooms are impressive. Each of them has its own en-suite bathroom and not two bedrooms are alike.
