About this home

Ideally situated for exploring the delights of the Loire valley, the self-catering Chateau De Vigner is beautifully set in lush and extensive grounds. The Chateau can sleep up to 14 guests, the Coach House a further 10, the farm cottage an additional 5 and the apartment another 4, resulting in a total capacity of 33. On-site facilities includes an impressive (12x6m) floodlit swimming pool, set within a secure walled garden with a large terrace. The Chateau De Vigner is situated on the outskirts of the small wine-producing village of Concourson-sur-Layon and the owner is friendly with a few of the local wine merchants so please inquire for special offers and wine tasting opportunities! The Chateau is around 3 hours drive from Paris, or the TGV takes 1.5 hours to Angers, either from the centre of Paris (Montparnasse) or directly from Charles de Gaule airport. The Chateau is then 35 mins drive from Angers and car hire is very easy from the station. The owner is happy to help in any way that she can and has friendly links to a few local vineyards, so if you do wish to go wine tasting locally please ask. You can see some of the world’s most magnificent Châteaux and taste the famous wines served to you by the producer in his own cellar. Enjoy the rolling countryside, the stately Loire river and its picturesque tributaries. Visit museums, local markets and theme parks, including Futuroscope and Puy de Fou. Relax on the famous beaches of the Vendée, less than 2 hours away. The river Layon itself, a short walk, is popular with fishing enthusiasts and contains a variety of fish.
