Charming 18th Century chateau, homely and romantic, with endless rural land – and cottagey rooms in the orchard.
The Chateaux des Briottières is probably as close as you can get to a luxury hotel, while staying on a privately owned estate. The old family photos and portraits are there to attest that the chateau has been in François’ family for six generations. The castle hosts salons, with their impressive chandeliers, silk fabrics and marble fireplaces, as well as the deluxe and junior suite rooms.
For a more country-chic and close to nature stay, choose the grand guesthouse, Le Fruitier, which hosts the standard rooms.
Open year round.
Double rooms start from 123 € per night. Use the calendar to find the rate and availability on a specific date and to book online.
The 50 hectares manicured park of the Chateau des Briottières, where you get all the activities of a mere resort, while staying in an authentic Loire chateau: heated swimming pool, tennis court, bicycles and even horse riding.
Rooms: 17 rooms and suites. Standard rooms are located in the Fruitier grand guesthouse – great in the summer, off-season opts for the Deluxe rooms and Junior Suites located in the Castle.
Breakfast: Locally sourced continental breakfast is served in the dining room.
Bar: An honesty bar is available throughout the day, while the aperitif is served at 19.30 in the Salon Vert (or in the garden weather permitting), and after dinner, drinks are served in the Grand Salon in front of the open fire.
Restaurant: It’s a table d’hôte, not a restaurant, meaning fixed time (20.30) and fixed homely menu (3 courses, €50). All beautifully set and served in the candlelit dining room, with the period family silver and china.
Pool: Elegant outdoor heated swimming pool.
