Chateau Des Lanternes
Perfectly situated to explore the rich culture, history, and wine of the Loire Valley, this impressive 19th century chateau in the Vienne department provides a relaxing escape in the bucolic Vienne countryside.
There are plenty of places to socialize and unwind - from the elegant library and the comfortable living room, to the formal dining room or in the open kitchen, where a large rustic dining table and modern appliances make it easy to prepare family meals.
Nine spacious bedrooms are distributed across three floors to accommodate 16 guests. They offer gorgeous views of the expansive lawn, gardens and countryside beyond.
The exterior grounds are enchanting, with 25 acres of walled parkland to explore, including a vast rose garden, and plenty of outdoor seating. Make the most of sunny days by settling into a sun lounger by the pool, firing up the BBQ, or getting a friendly game of table tennis going.
