Ben & Shelley LUCAS
We are a young couple in our late 20's, I myself am French and my fiancé Australian, and we live on-site in a separate out-building so we are close by if our guests require any assistance from cleaning, repairs or questions regarding the local area and attractions. No request is too difficult, however we appreciate the want for privacy and are discreet in our happenings while guests are onsite. My parents bought this property when I was 20 and I have been in love with it since. Now my wife and I, on behalf of my parents, are managing the property and sharing the beauty and romance of the chateau with our guests. We look forward to meeting all of our guests and if you have any queries regarding the property before booking please don't hesitate to contact us.
Benjamin Lucas purchased this castle in 2008
Our occasion to visit Chateau du Breil was the 5 year reunion with our 7 grandchildren, now ages 19-24. Iris and I had been looking for a special place to celebrate and when we saw Shelley and Ben's place on line, we grabbed it!. Located 30 minutes from Nantes and a TGV ride from Paris, we were so pleased to find a room for each person with individual bath, beautiful formal dining room and living room, large kitchen, heated pool--what else could we ask for? So, when we corresponded with the owners, they helped us arrange for a chef and our chef's tour of the Nantes marketplace, a tour of a local Muscat winery, reservations at a two star Michelin restaurant near by, fresh breads and crescents every morning. Gathering around the swimming pool, walking through the vineyards or to the nearby village, we knew we had found a place to build memories for our family. And build, we did.....Our grandkids were blown away by the place-- having come from hostels and camping areas, wine and cheese dinners--suddenly, they were part of the artisanal scene. What we didn't expect was the warmth of Ben's family, whom we invited to join us for our final dinner 4 days later. We didn't just live in luxury , we found new friends who made us feel at home and a part of their family. So, if you want a place to stay where hospitality and lifelong friendships can develop, give them a call, tell them what you are planning and what you need and they will make it happen. Tell them we sent you...C'est Magnifique.
Beautifully laid out in exquisite settings. Every bedroom was a delight. Countryside as you would expect in the Loire Valley. Our hosts were charming & helpful. The chef we organised with wine was fabulous. A week to savour with good friends.
The chateau is more beautiful that we expected. The rooms and all interior are perfect, and the garden is ..., marvellous. we are a family of 14, sister, brother, husband, wife, son, dauther, mother, father... from 8 to 71 years old and all of us love our time spend there this summer. The pool is warm and the jacuzzi is hot, and the bbq is perfect. We use the kitchen and it was perfect for us like the dinning room and the piano room. I am sure we will come back soon and we will be there for more time. Benjamin, and all his family are very good host. Dont forget to try MUSCADET wine.
Una pasada de bonito. No sé si nos gustaron más las habitaciones, el jardín o los alrededores. Y el vino muscadet, claro. Hemos pasado una semana los 14, yo y mis dos hermanos, con nuestras parejas y nuestros hijos y nuestros padres. y se nos ha hecho tan corta que nos encantaría volver pronto y pasar más días. El palacete no es como viene en las fotos, es mejor, mucho mejor.
