Why The Owner chose Saint-Jean-d'Angely area

Built in 1830, the castle is part of a property that has not changed family for 200 years. This is a cozy family home and has been preserved throughout the generations.

The region is one of the sunniest in France and famous for its beaches and the islands of Ré and Oléron.

Area of old traditions, notable for its architecture with its beautiful cities of La Rochelle, Rochefort, Saintes and St Jean d'Angely, Romanesque churches lost in the countryside and small villages built with local white stones.

Culinary tradition with oysters, the famous butter of the region, cheeses. And the world famous Cognac!

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Delightful chateau in lovely grounds ,near several pretty towns and villages, Saint Savinien 5 mins down the road. Swimming pool good size and near house. Plenty of seating for big party. Good to have bikes to wander round local villages, also good walks. Housekeeper,Dominique and caretaker Jean Marie very pleasant and helpful. A great place for a family get together.

Everything you expect it to be - and more!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during my son's wedding in Rochefort. Perfect for a large family 'get together'. Beautiful surroundings and reasonably close to Saintes which has everything you will need. There's a good SuperU just over a mile away so you are not isolated. The accommodation is flexible with some fantastic bedrooms on the first floor; the second floor is a bit on the dark side but the kids loved it. Massive dining table and just about every thing you could ever want in the kitchen. The living areas are cosy and relaxed - the pool table was almost almost always in use. We were there during atrocious weather so didn't get chance to use the swimming pool unfortunately. To give a balanced view, it may be a bit dated for some tastes but for us this was a plus in that it made us feel more relaxed (if everything was pristine we would have been worrying about damaging something). The owner, Charles Arnaud, was very helpful. I did a lot of research before booking as I couldn't understand why we were getting so much for such a relatively little price - to be honest, couldn't really fault it for what we paid.

Better than we ever expected!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a most wonderful week at the chateau. There were 20 of us (10 adults and 10 children) and everyone loved it. The bedrooms are spacious and beautifully decorated, the ensuite bathrooms newly renovated, the kitchen well equipped, chateau and pool clean and its big enough for 20 not to feel crowded in the slightest.

Arnaud was extremely responsive and helpful during the reservation process and in the run up to our arrival. On site both Dominique and Mr le Pape were responsive and assisted us with any questions / request we had.

I would highly recommend this property for a family gathering - we had an unforgettable week there!

En résumé ce fut de l avis de toute la famille des superbes vacances dans un très beau cadre

  • 4 of 5

Excellent contact avec le propriétaire , nous lui avions suggéré l achat d un bac à sable pour le futur, 2 jours après il était là , avec pelle et sceau !encore un grand merci !

Le château a beaucoup de charme , digne des livres de la comtesse de Ségur , tout en ayant tout le confort moderne , sdb et cuisine bien équipée .

TBeau parc avec piscine . Les personnes qui s occupent du château et du parc sont aux petits soins et d une grande gentillesse.

Nous avons passé des très belles vacances en famille avec nos enfants et petits enfants, et comme tout ce qui est bon ça a passé beaucoup trop vite !

Vacances serreines dans un cadre idyllique

  • 5 of 5

Pendant une semaine nous nous sommes retrouves entre amis dans le ravissant cadre de La Chaussee. Nous avons ete seduits par le calme, l'espace et l'ame qu'offre cette belle demeure rafraichie avec gout. Les 9 enfants disparaissaient du matin au soir dans le vaste jardin aux arbres centenaires, dans la piscine securisee ou autour de la table de ping pong. La maison est un peu isolee, mais les villages environent se trouvent a un jet de pierre, au coeur d'une region interessante. Le proprietaire est charmant et la gestion de la maison parfaitement organisee.
