Château de la Chance is located on the banks of the river Layon in the Loire Valley between two rural wine-producing villages, only a 30-minute drive from the city of Angers. This region, in the Maine-et-Loire department, is known as ‘Anjou’ and the château is located directly on the Anjou Wine Trail (“Route des Vins & Villages de l’Anjou”).
The nearest village is an easy 1.2km walk from the château where you will find a supermarket, two boulangeries, an auberge (for lunch), butcher/caterer, bar/tabac, florist, ATM machine, cinema, garage, petrol station, a covered swimming pool and amenities such as a pharmacy, doctors and dentist. There is also a Farmer’s market on a Tuesday morning.
In the other direction, another village just over 2km away has a bakery, bar/tabac, mini-supermarket and tennis courts. There is also a Michelin starred restaurant a 15-minutes away by car, as well as a good selection of restaurants and bars within a 10-15 minute drive.
There are plenty of beautiful walks amongst the trails and vineyards directly across the road where you can follow the old railway track of 'Petit Anjou’. The Thouarcé - Chalonnes-sur-Loire route takes you to the very heart of the Coteaux du Layon and Aubance vineyards where you will discover a stunning landscape that is a patchwork of vines, mills, wine-growing estates and character properties. There are also further cycling trails along the Loire river, known as the famous Loire à Vélo.
The owners have very good relationships with local wineries and they can help arrange a wine-tasting. Other activities include golf, horse-riding and boating on the Loire river which is just a 30-40 minute drive away.
The region is crammed with rich, cultural heritage and some experiences you won't find anywhere else in France. The beautiful city of Angers (25km) on the River Maine features a wonderful 13th century castle and a lovely old town where you can explore the cobbled lanes filled with cafes and restaurants.
On the Loire river, visit Saumur (40km), known for its famous equestrian school, Cadre Noir, and its excellent sparkling white wine. Also heading east you can visit the amazing Troglodyte caves in Rochemenier (22km) or the impressive Fontevraud Abbey (55km).
Tours (120km) is another great day trip, a city filled with history and excellent restaurants and markets. Perhaps combine with one of the Loire’s famous châteaux such as Château de Villandry (96km) or Château Royal d'Amboise (150km) as well as many others nearby.
