Château Allure du Lac



 
  Magnificent and breathtaking are the words that come to mind when you first see Château Allure du Lac, a luxurious château in the Pays de la Loire.  We are so pleased to include it among our prestigious members, and you will be equally as pleased if you choose this château as the place in France to spend a week or short break with friends and family.  

Constructed in the 19th century, the château was extensively renovated by its current owner.  Luxurious fabrics and fine antiques are part of the tasteful and elegant décor throughout the château.  A dramatic entrance hall and graceful stairway lead to a first-floor mezzanine.  The atmosphere is warm and welcoming, and guests can make themselves at home with they arrive by relaxing in the Drawing room, the Grand Salon, or on the :Lakeside terrace.  The Drawing room is cozy and inviting with rich paneling, a huge fireplace and private terrace for evening drinks.  The Grand Salon is elegant with the original paneled walls, large windows, French period furniture and a mirrored mantle above a carved oak fireplace.  There is the opulent Silver Reception room available for hosting weddings, parties and seminars.  A high-speed dumbwaiter connects the Silver Reception room's service kitchen to the main kitchen two floors below, and there is elevator access for guests on all floors. 

Delicious breakfasts, lunches dinners and/or, full afternoon English tea can be arranged by the proprietor.  Guests are also welcome to self cater if they prefer.  A kitchen with dishwasher, utensils and dishes, microwave, oven, refrigerator, stove and toaster are available for the use of guests. 

The fourteen en suite bedrooms can accommodate up to 28 guests and are exquisite, with luxurious fabrics, quality beds, crystal chandeliers, antiques and sophisticated color schemes.  The two-story master suite with its own foyer, drawing room, and antique oak staircase leads to the spacious, circular en suite bedroom with a hand-painted domed ceiling.  Four of the bedrooms can be configured to accommodate children.

There are also two apartments, a two-bedroom and a three-bedroom, in a separate building only a three-minute walk from the Château.  An additional ten guests can be accommodated between the two apartments at € 100 per apartment per night.  A total of 38 guests can sleep comfortably on the estate between the Château and the apartments.

The estate itself is spectacular with a 22-acre lake ~ perfect for fishing ~ and a beautiful island. There are over one hundred acres of gardens, lawns, woods and parkland, a sparkling swimming pool, the lake's beautiful 2.5 kilometer shoreline for leisurely walks, and so much more.  Perhaps what guests will find most appealing is the serenity of the pastoral setting and the cherished memories they will take away with them.
