General Description

Two centuries ago a French nobleman by the name of Augustin de Vernouillet built this Chateau which is now in the hands of his descendants. Featuring a spectacular entrance hall and an equally impressive ‘grand salon’, this French holiday chateau is perfect for those wanting to holiday in France in luxury and decadence. The Chateau has recently laid a hard court tennis facility, a private swimming pool, and there’s a generous 70 acres of private grounds for you to enjoy. Perfectly manicured and maintained with rare trees, you’ll be torn between the inside and outside of this luxury French chateau. There are also horses on site! 13 guests can be accommodated in this lovingly cared for castle where guests have exclusive use of the chateau and all its facilities.

The chateau holds the memories of a lifetime
Posted by The Howard Family on 08/12/2011
La Cailletiere holds the memories of a lifetime for my family and me. This beautiful place is romantic and comfortable, awe inspiring and historical. We loved horseback riding at the local stables we enjoyed marvellous French meals. There were plenty of wonderful quiet places to settle in with a book or a sketchpad under a tree in the yard or in one of the large windows overlooking the pond. There were many hours spent exploring this exquisite place and its surrounding grounds. We played table tennis and tennis, visited markets, castles, and museums. We remember day trips to Mont St. Michel, Chenonceau, Angers, and Chambord. We hope to return again and again!
