Beyond our dreams

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at La Bergeliere. The chateau itself, its interior and furnishings are beautiful, as well as being equipped with absolutely everything families could want even down to tennis racquets, games for every age young and old, a pool complete with swimming/play floats, lovely grounds and a most hospitable and helpful family and staff. Being right in the little village all we needed, in terms of supplies, was right on our doorstep and in spite of rather inclement weather for the time of year, we had a holiday which, I feel sure will make our grandchildren francophiles for life. Thank you Francois and your family.

A perfect location for a large family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Ever been on holiday/honeymoon for a week in the same house with a few different families totalling 18 adults, 2 toddlers, 3 dogs, 6 cars and approximately 42liters of champagne? 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!

Idéal pour une réunion familiale 4.8/5

  • 5 of 5

Pleinement satisfaits de notre séjour en 2016, nous avons renouvelé l'expérience cette année.

La demeure et son parc sont magnifiques ! Les chambres comme les pièces de vie sont décorées avec goût et sont particulièrement agréables. Le parc, sa piscine et ses terrains de tennis et de volley ont fait le bonheur des petits et des grands.

C'est donc avec grand plaisir que nous nous sommes retrouvés en ce lieu, en famille, avec enfants et petits-enfants.

Bref, la Bergelière est devenu le lieu idéal pour notre réunion familiale et c'est avec grand plaisir que nous nous y retrouverons l'année prochaine !

Très beau séjour

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 5 jours au château de la Bergelière pour le nouvel an. Le cadre était parfait permettant à chacun d'avoir son espace et à tous de se retrouver dans les lieux de vie communs. Le parc est superbe. En hiver, c'est quelque chose... en été ça doit être différent. Et l'aide apportée pendant le séjour a été très appréciée.

Merveilleux WE

  • 5 of 5

Une très jolie propriété au coeur du village, très bon accueil.

Nous étions 17 ( 9 enfants et 8 adultes), chambres sont très confortables, lits faits à l'arrivée, linge de maison fourni.

Grande cuisine familiale et bien équipée.

Tout près du Puy du fou.

Un grand parc dont nous n'avons malheureusement pas assez profité (tennis, piscine) car notre programme était très chargé.

Dîner samedi soir avec un chef à domicile que nous recommandons, très sympathique.

Nous reviendrons avec plaisir.

The Vendee has marked French history with its wars of the same name during the French Revolution. The confrontation between rebel peasants (known as "Whites") and revolutionary troops (known as "Blues") lasted several years, caused several hundred thousand deaths and left a lasting mark on Vendean imagination. La Bergeliere is situated in the heart of the hedged farmland of the Vendee, territory of the military Vendee. The inhabitants of the Vendee attach a lot of importance to their culture and history. The Puy-du-Fou, nearby, reveals a great part of the history of the Vendee to the audience; the "Cinescenie" is the biggest night show in the world: 1.200 actors wear 8.000 costumes and perform in front of you on a 23ha stage! The Grand Parc du Puy-du-Fou, during the day, takes you on a journey through time, from the antiquity to the modern era, through its recreated villages and amazing shows.
