Chateau overview - owner's description
Chateau Anais is an outstanding ‘Folie Nantaise' completed in the 19th century, regally set at the crown of 6 hectares of private parklands, dotted with mature trees, overlooking a quaint pond, rolling grass meadows and vineyards which lead down to the river La Sevre. Just 15 minutes south of Nantes, you are perfectly positioned to relax and enjoy the quiet countryside but also to explore all the wonderful farmers markets, galleries, museums and boutiques that the town has to offer.
Whether serviced or self-catered, Chateau Anais is a charming rental, operating as a weekly let during the high season and a B&B in the low season. Regardless of the season, you will find a consistently warm and welcoming ambience across 7 spacious bedrooms, 6 with en-suite rooms. The decor creates an air of sophistication that is timeless, whether relaxing in the cosy lounge, or exploring the library complete with indoor games and honesty bar.
Guests will delight in whiling away the days in a private heated swimming pool, exploring the surrounding gardens or taking in the picturesque views from the balcony over a glass of the local cabernet. Without doubt this is the ideal setting to stage an unforgettable event or family gathering that will last forever in the memories of all those who attend.
