An ideal venue to organize a wedding, a birthday party or a corporate seminar or more simply to spend a family vacation. The Château is located in POITOU-CHARENTES at the border of the historic VENDEE at a close drive to PUY DU FOU (1 h15) and FUTUROSCOPE (45mn).

Welcome to Château de saint-loup

Truth becomes reality. Imagine yourself welcoming friends and family on the lawn between the majestuous XVII th. c.  Château and the medieval fortress Keep and think of their amazed eyes as they walk towards you in this enchanting frame.

As soon as they arrive, the magic operates. The château has become a master in seduction by its authenticity, its History and its exceptional architectural quality.

Full of charm, located on the banks of a mean dering river and surrounded by 120 acres of Park and Gardens

A unique site to sublimate your events.


Fantastic experience

I rented this place for my wife & teenage daughters to celebrate a 5th anniversary over a 3 night weekend. We opted to rent the entirety of the castle for privacy (and for more fun!)
Exploring the maze of giant rooms is so cool....The 120 acres are a wonderland. The adjacent village is quaint and gorgeous and has a decent grocery store for supplies.

Amazing place!

It was a dream come true for us. We stayed in "the keep". The owners were the most delightful, accomodating and informative people. The Bosendorfer piano in the gorgeous living room was a fantastic instrument. Though an hour from main attractions, the nearby wineries and chateau visits were amazing. It was the peaceful immersion of true French culture and history we longed for.

Awesome experience!

We were fortunate to stay in the Keep (the medieval castle next to the chateau) for nearly a week and I have to say that the experience was just unbelievable! The rooms were clean and comfortable, the scenery was gorgeous, and the decorations all had an authentic feel. There was so much to see in the area and so much history to take in. The hosts were very kind and provided us with wonderful meals in the dining room of the chateau and also in the Keep. The original part of the Keep was built in the 12th century but the rooms were all updated with modern conveniences, while still leaving the medieval feel. Other parts of the Keep were built in the 14th century and additions have been made throughout even current times. Some of our other family members stayed in the Chateau so we had an opportunity to see many parts of that 17th century mansion.
This was an experience like no other.
For anyone looking for a unique get-away unlike any place you have ever stayed, I would highly recommend this place.
