“Everything you can imagine of a French Chateau and more - perfect for groups or small parties”

My family and I (husband and 2 young children) couldn't have been happier with our choice of holiday venue this year, Chateau de Jalesnes is a real jewel and a credit to owners Michael, Jonathan, Jenny & David.

We were greeted with a very warm and friendly welcome and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the first floor which wowed us as soon as we walked in. We were presented with a welcome basket containing everything you would need to get by until you could get to the supermarket. We were also delighted to find a bottle of local fizz in the fridge!

The high ceilings and huge windows with shutters all helped maintain the chateau experience. The renovation has been very carefully and thoughtfully done with quality furnishings, fittings and appliances reflecting the 5 star standard of accommodation. The kitchen was fitted out with hi-tech Bosch appliances including a washer/dryer, the bedrooms with beautiful crisp white bedding and the bathroom with luxurious white towels and dressing gowns. Both en suites were very generously sized with a bath (roll top in the main bedroom en suite) and huge walk in shower - great water pressure too. Each bathroom also had twin sinks and plenty of space for hanging towels and putting toiletries. The open plan living area was airy and bright with a 6 seater dining table, 2 couches and a large screen Smart TV. It was so nice to see they hadn't tried to cram in as many apartments as possible to this beautiful building and had gone rather for space and quality over quantity.

We were shown around the Chateau's awesome rooms, all with impressive features and very tastefully decorated. The grounds of the Chateau are beautiful and the moat adds such character and interest. The swimming pool was immaculate and the water kept at the perfect temperature to cool off in.

We ate in the apartment most evenings which was ideal for the children and there is a large supermarket (Super U) only about 5 mins drive from the chateau with everything you will need, even a British section if you prefer not to go local!

We borrowed the Chateau's bikes and took a lovely ride to a nearby village for a picnic and had an adventure through the woods. We didn't get chance to kayak but that's on our list for our next visit. We spent an fantastic evening with our hosts in Saumur where they had a local food and wine festival on complete with very cool local bands providing the music. We also visited the zoo - Bio Parc in Doue la Fontaine. There are lots of places to visit around the Chateau but we were also happy to stay within the grounds relaxing by the pool.

I really couldn't recommend Chateau de Jalesnes highly enough. The standard of the accommodation is very high and combined with the friendliness and warmth of the owners, the impressive venue and beautiful French countryside there is really nothing else you could wish for. We have already decided we will be returning for another visit and wish the owners every success.

Thank you for a wonderful stay and for some treasured family memories.
