This Chateau is the very best we have ever statyed at, it is idyllic and far more than its description depicts.
The owner Thierry, his team of Marie-France and Pierre just can't do enough to help and make you welcome from the second you arrive until the final wave as you leave.
The Chateau is beautiful, the facilities tremendous, the gardens spectacular, the swimming pool a delight. If a Chateau holiday away from it all is what you want, then do not look any further, this is it.
We will definitely return to La Chauvinière in the future, I couldn't recommend it highly enough. Many thanks, David Porter-Smith
