“A French Chateau”

person found this review helpful

We stayed this week at Chateau de Bois Giraud. There were 6 couples.
It was excellent. Very comfortable accommodation. Plenty of space.
The poolside had many, many sun lounges, umbrellas, tables and chairs and we could spread out. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of plates, glasses, cutlery etc.
A wonderful house party in wonderful surroundings with wonderful weather.
Would love to stay again with friends or family.

“Great fun in the Loire”
Reviewed 23 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed as part of a group of 3 families (6 adults and 7 children). Staying in a chateau is a great experience - the kids loved it (hide-and-seek a true challenge!). Warm days, supermarket conveniently located nearby, a BBQ by the swimming pool, a wine fridge in the kitchen. The place is a little tired, but nothing that should detract from a good holiday. Also, great countryside to go for a run.

“A Brilliant Week in a Fabulous Location.”
Reviewed 30 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

What can I say ..14 friends and family gathered at the Chateau for a week in June, the weather was not brilliant but that did not dampen our fun.

The Chateau itself is beautiful - the rooms are as described, the disabled facilities for my mother in a wheelchair are discrete (a lift directly into a special modified suite, and a large disabled toilet downstairs) and were so much better than we have ever found before. The door between the kitchen and dining room is tight but not a problem for her chair. The acres of ground floor space made it very easy to move her around so she missed nothing.

The kitchen was a great space for chat and creativity, big enough for all to get involved, the good instructions on how to work the huge oven came in very handy. The dining room is palatial and was the scene of many delicious meals with lots of that french red. The grounds were fun to explore with a particular challenging tree swing ! We used the bikes, minimally, but we tried, Im afraid I can't review the gym, only went up to it when we arrived, but it was very well equipped !. The table tennis table provided many hours of fun, old skills refound. We did manage to sit by the pool one day which was very clean, with lots of sun beds. Also ate outside one night and used the big built in BBQ, a lovely night as we sat around the fire.

We had a slight issue with hot water (probable user error) but we had the plumber straight there.

As recommended by a previous reviewer, we had fresh bread and croissants from the local baker every morning and did all our shopping (including wine) at the local supermarket. They made the mad Brits/Australians feel so very welcome and even stayed open a little longer as we arrived one day as they were about to close - a tip to remember the french (quite rightly) shut up shop quite a lot !

I would highly recommend this place and if would have no hesitation in returning - the booking process was also a very easy experience with Marian answering so many questions that our party had - especially about the TV as the Euros were on.

Just a great place ...

“A taste of French manor living”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in July 2015

people found this review helpful

We visited the chateau for a week in July and had a really relaxing time – it's a great location to get away from the hectic UK city life. The pool is great, just like the photos, and was a favourite with the kids. Enjoyed lots of walking and made good use of the cycles provided. The accommodation is generous and lots of varied rooms for every taste. The children are already asking to go back next year!. Recommended for large groups or families

“A really good place for all ages”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

My husband and I spent 10 days as part of a large group and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. In spite of mixed weather there were plenty of things to do as the large playroom and gym were well equipped, or one could relax in the salon/drawing room or socialise in the big kitchen.

I particularly enjoyed going daily to the local village to collect the bread and patisserie order. I also liked shopping in the local supermarkets and the high spot of the week was going to the enormous market in Clisson, a very attractive town with at least 2 good restaurants and numerous other eating places. (Suggest either or both of the restaurants on either side of the old bridge in the historic centre).

We also found time to go to Nantes to Machines d'Iles. This was fascinating and worth the trip but would suggest that anyone else going first books rides on the enormous mechanical elephant from the Galerie des Machines to the Carousel. The two are easily within walking distance, but the ride looked such fun! Children enjoyed the Carousel more as they were able to pull levers etc to make their marine animals move. Also, if you have time try the Parc Oriental in Maulevrier - the largest Japanaese garden in Europe with a teahouse at the end of the walk.

There are lots of other sites to see, so hope to return and visit some chateaux etc if we can get the younger generation out of the pool; or we may go on our own.

Liked best: There is a happy atmosphere in the place and we spent a great deal of time relaxing by the pool or in the kitchen. The kitchen was good to cook in. The children were able to run around without us having to worry unduly about them.
Liked least: Sometimes when one wanted peace in the Salon there would be other people watching the television, though this was not a major problem.
