Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in an amazing place!
Thank you Lillemore for all of your generous help and support in enabling us to fulfil the young couple’s dream of getting married in a beautiful, awe-inspiring Chateau with such gorgeous surroundings.
None of us thought it could possibly be as incredible as it really is. Truly a place that makes dreams come true.
We’ve just arrived home after our wonderful week at the chateau and I just wanted to get in touch to say a massive thank you for allowing us to share your heavenly home for a few days.
Apart from a couple of hours last Boxing Day it is the first time that we have been together with our four children, two sons-in-law and our three grandchildren, two of whom were born just before and during the lockdown. Seeing the three cousins get to know and play with each other has been incredibly special.
For families like ours, the chateau is a total paradise and despite the temptation to see the wider area we hardly left the premises, there was so much to do. We were blessed with great weather and even without the pool heating most of us enjoyed a dip (even me!) and the huge jacuzzi was great to warm up in afterwards.
The children also loved the trampoline and the climbing frame as well as the bikes and all the toys in the nursery. Gaby and Rob and the girls loved the space and privacy of the top floor and Franky & Jack had Max in the little room next to them in the red suite. The set up was perfect and the children all slept brilliantly allowing the adults time to relax in the evenings.
Our meal (with wine pairings) with Sebastian was an absolute triumph, one of the best meals we’ve ever had and we had a BBQ and another meal in the lovely conservatory outside the kitchen. Another night we babysat so the big kids could go out for a meal together in Cholet.
The billiard table was a huge hit with tournaments going on long into the small hours most nights and on one evening we even had an impromptu music session in the music room. The gym and yoga studio were also greatly enjoyed by Franky and Jack (who are now expecting baby no. 2!).
As for the chateau itself, we are completely in awe of the work you have all done in renovating and restoring this magnificent building. Every detail is exquisite from the panelling, the fabrics, the colours, the furniture, the artwork and the ornaments, every room is a masterpiece in itself and an absolute joy to behold. And to know that you created the beautiful garden design completely from scratch is mind-blowing. It looks as though it must have been there for hundreds of years!
So thank you, thank you, thank you from all of us for giving us an incredible experience with memories that we will all cherish forever!
I would like to send you a kind thank you for renting your beautiful chateau to our group, we absolutely loved it!!! The chateau has exceeded our expectations and we hope to be back again one day!
A big thank you to Lillemor who was an amazing help from the start! She was always there to help us with anything we needed and we really appreciate that!! You are very lucky to have her as your chateau manager!
“We just returned from an incredible stay at Chateau De Vezins. The Chateau and grounds show even better when there than the photos. We used the Chateau as a friend and family getaway and it was perfect for our group of 11. The bedrooms and en suite bathrooms were all a bit different and each was spectacular in its own way. Bathrooms were spacious and hot water plentiful! We made a concerted effort to thoroughly enjoy the whole house from the music room to the billiard room to a very functional kitchen. Each experience was great. Our host recommended a private chef (Sebastian) who is highly regarded throughout the region and we were able to hire him for two evenings to prepare incredible dinners for our group. He is also a great person who helped throughout our stay not only with our menus but other suggestions on wine tasting in the region, lunches, etc. The weather was nice so we were also able to use the pool, spa and bicycles. The grounds make for beautiful walks and the exercise room was very well equipped and very sizeable. We would love to return in the future. Fabulous experience!” Steve and Lari Kircher
The castle was a dream come true! It was beautifully decorated — room after room — with a gorgeous pool and park. We loved our chef’s dinner, as well as gathering in the “blue room” each evening for aperitifs. We were able to sit outside behind the kitchen with candlelight, though the temps were cooler that week. We also enjoyed the hot tub, pool table, piano, and chessboard. We took your suggestion to visit Puy du Fou, and, as you said, were blown away. We hope to go back, as we didn’t make it to every show. Several people used the gym, a few rode bikes. We visited Chateau de Brissac and tasted white wine in Savennieres. We dined almost every night at the chateau and would walk the grounds to appreciate the lit-up chateau before bed. We were all amazed, looking through the books on the chateau’s refurbishment, at the effort and love poured into the place. Sleeping in the yellow bedroom, I discovered the small portraiture of the house itself painted on the door. The details — the cloth wall hangings, the painted ceilings, the tapestries and framed prints — were exquisite. The sound system allowed us to pipe Edith Piaf or Alain Souchon throughout. In short, it was spectacular.
Comment: The property IS nothing short of extraordinary It would take a book to describe it . The owners and staff were very gracious and accommodating .My 25 year old son said it was the best trip of his life and he has taken a lot .We used this week for a family reunion of sorts and it couldn’t have been a better place. If you go make sure to take advantage of the private Chef. He prepared a 5 course fabulous gourmet dinner for 9 of us .We hope to return some day
“ We organize a family trip every year in France and rent a Chateau for the occasion, to discover each time a new region. This year, we booked Chateau de Vezins, and that was a great experience! The Chateau and the Park offer so many amenities to keep both children and adults busy – a pool, a jacuzzi, a gym with sauna, while the young ones jump on the trampoline or chase the beautiful peacocks and ducks in the French Garden. Inside there’s so much space… while some are having a discussion in the living room facing the meditation garden, others are in the billiard room, or the TV room, or upstairs in the kids playroom.
We visited the Japanese Garden, a must see just 15 mins away and several Chateaux in the area. For the gourmet part we enjoyed a wonderful chef that came a few days to the Chateau and the covered market in Cholet. And of course we are in a wine region with many wineries to visit and sample!
We had a wonderful time and the owner and staff were very welcoming and helpful – before, during and after our stay.”

Additional comments: I usually don’t write reviews, but our stay at Chateau’ de Vezins was nothing less than spectacular! We invited 3 other couples to join us, and the chateau’ was so spacious, beautiful and well appointed that we had total privacy when we wanted, but were able to enjoy time together too! The owner, Gaelle, sent us all kinds of great things to do nearby…and we were able to do most of them! the Japanese Gardens were unbelievable…a must see. She also suggested Chef Sebastian…the owner of a nearby restaurant getting a Michelin Star…to prepare dinner for us one night at the chateau’. We did…and it was one of the highlights of our trip. He arrived at the chateau’, prepared an unbelievable multi course dinner for us and served us in the gorgeous dining room. It was by far the best meal we had on our entire trip to France. Then, to top it all off, he totally cleaned the kitchen for us! I can’t recommend the Chateau’ enough…it was simply WONDERFUL!!! Roxanne Barnes and DR. Mark Windt
