Come and Stay at
our petit chateau
Long leisurely weekend stays
RELAX, CELEBRATE AND EXPLORE. THIS ITINERARY IS SUCH A DELIGHT
Catch a flight from Stansted airport and arrive in Poitiers, 1 hour later. Hire a car and scoot to the Chateau in 45 minutes or consider stopping off on the route to soak up the amazing architecture and beauty of the Loire Valley. Super, super easy!
Take the stunning backroads to Chinon. Arrive at Chateau La Perriere, where you will be welcomed with a local hamper full of goodies to aid your fabulous weekend with friends.
Relax and get ready for an evening in Chinon, book one of the renowned restaurants Les Annees 30 or La Part des Anges, booking is advisable. Don't worry, we can do this for you. Just let us know which one you would prefer. If you can't decide, you can always try both!
Head off to Saumur market and enjoy the atmosphere. Grab some fresh produce; by the way, the mushroom lady with the enormous queue is so worth the wait.
Sample the wine at Chateau de la Grille from 4 different vineyards. Remember if you are flying there is only so much you can buy, so don't go crazy.
Stoke up the BBQ in the evening, relax with your friends over a glass of wine or 2 and enjoy the delights of the day.
Have a leisurely breakfast, dig out your walking shoes and explore the 2 hour woodland hike to Roche Clemault from the Chateau. Sample some delicious goats cheese on the way, before looping back to the Chateau.
Alternatively, if it is the 3rd Sunday in the month, peruse the antiques market which lines the riverbank in Chinon. My favourite thing to do, especially sneaking a coffee at one of the Chinon cafes after.
It's your last night, put on your glad rags and enjoy a private chef cooking for you in the dining room. No need to clear up, they do it all.
With a late afternoon flight, there is no rush. Take your time, enjoy the estate, perhaps take a stroll to the fantastic bakery which is a short 15 minute walk. Returning with baguettes and croissants, to enjoyed throughout the day.
