Château de Gizeux - Boutique château-hotel - Loire Valley
Unforgettable stay in Touraine Angevine
Create lasting memories in this hidden gem of the Loire Valley.
The Château de Gizeux stands proud. Its main building is a prime example of the Renaissance period, while its outbuildings are typical of the 18th century. Wander through the halls of French history as you stroll along the 820 feet of this grandiose architectural structure – the longest château in the Angers area of Touraine.
As soon as you arrive, the gates of the past open onto the Galerie François I, painted by Italian artists in the early 17th century, and the Galerie des Châteaux du Roy, where majestic frescoes from the time of Louis XIV lend splashes of color to your walk. A little further on, five guesthouses invite you into their comfortable interiors. Named after the women who left their mark on the château’s gilded past – Marie Feuillant, Anne de Frézeau, Marie d’Yvetôt, Julie de la Lorie – they all overlook the estate’s grounds to complete this blissfully bucolic scene.
Take a dip in the outdoor swimming pool, explore the secret garden nestled in the heart of the château, and rediscover your childish spirit in fun workshops. Life at Gizeux is slow-paced and easygoing.
Nearby, the Bourgueil vineyards invite you to sample the local tipples, the castles of Le Lude and Langeais open their doors, while the Villandry gardens promise an unforgettable visit.
Welcome to the home of Stéphanie and Géraud de Laffon, who stand watch over this magical place. Don’t look for the bellhop, reception area, or elevator. Here, a passion for history has little use for prim and proper protocol, and your stay will be all the better for it.
