Our family stayed at Château la Choltière for 2 weeks in August 2018 and can honestly say that it was the best vacations we have had in many years.
Firstly the Château hits you with its grandeur on arrival and it continues when you enter the property. We felt instanly comfortable and commented that after only 2 days that it felt we had been there much longer.
Mr Chabot met us on arrival and showed us around and also popped in occasionally to make sure all was fine, he also helped us when our car got a flat battery! Always on hand but no intrusive.
Our three children (10, 7 and 6) had such a wonderful time and spent most days swimming and jumping into the wonderful pool, never have we experienced in many years of renting properties a pool that was so magnificent, as was the Jacuzzi. We rowed the boat around the lake most days, fished and caught a number of carp (two sizable ones). It was wonderful to teach my boys how to fish and row a boat.
I will admit that our children are of the modern era with regards to technology, yet the Château had no TV or Wifi. However not once in two weeks did they ask for their tech. Most vacations they look forward to going home but not on this occasion, we had three grumpy faces at dinner on the last evening, even one protest followed by a sit in on the final morning from our 7 year old son.
As a keen road cyclist I was up at the crack of dawn 11 of the 14 days to experience endless perfect roads, rural fields, lakes and thousands of sunflowers growing along the routes. I cycled around 50k per day and can honestly say that on some rides I saw more villages than cars and one pot hole in two weeks! Oh what I would give for that in the UK!
The Château is in a very rural location but its not isolated, Le Blanc is only 5 minutes by car and Chateauroux and Poiteirs within reach in approximately 45 minutes.
I barbequed & cooked most evenings with with fresh produce purchased locally, the market in Le Blanc on Saturdays and Wednesdays is a must. We sat and ate wonderful food, drank wine outside and gazed at a sky full of stars due to there being zero light polution, our children have never seen a full night sky. We listened to the crickets and the owls once it was dark, it was so idyllic.
In summary this was a magnificent vacation made by a stunning location in a beautiful part of France. Thank you Maja and Mr Chabot from all of us, we hope to see you again very soon

Unvergessliche Golfwoche mit Freunden im traumhaften Château la Choltière!
Wir erlebten mit Freunden eine unvergessliche Golfwoche im trsumhaften Château la Choltiêre. Alles war perfekt; wir hatten Spass, zusammen zusammen auf dem Markt einzukaufen, gemeinsam zu kochen, zu grillen oder in Restaurants zu essen. Jeden Tag spielten wir einen andern herrlichen Golfplatz!
Wir kommen wieder!!
Dear Golfer‘s Group
What a pleasure to read that you enjoyed an unforgettable week on Château la Choltière! Thank you for having been our guests! Looking forward to welcome you again!
We arrived tired and in need of a good rest. We are a family of five : a daughter aged 12 and 10 year old twin girls.
The first thing to do was to relax in the jacuzzi. In fact we did this every day!
The Chateau was very big and grand in a rustic French style, with shutters, marble and chandeliers. Space to relax and dine in style.
There was an outdoor pool but it was too cold and leafy to use. We did have some hot days even in late October.
The lakes were great and geese and ducks were at home here ! My girls loved being rowed around in the boat by me.The gent who tends the grounds and greets is really lovely and we communicated in French ( just ) and he recommended places to visit.
The town was a couple of minutes to drive with at least 2 big hypermarkets very close by.
Rural bliss, hardly any cars about and no traffic jams or noise.
To watch the sun set and hear nothing but birds and crickets was bliss. We played board games and became a family once more.
The area is stunning and people friendly.
Old style charm...I could live here happily!
Historical manor house in very good conditions.
We enjoyed this house and gardens for our family holiday, and 2 weeks was not really enough. The House gave us instantly a feeling of being home, rooms, beds and kitchen was authentic in the good sense.
The nearby area has also very many sights - don't think twice.
Thank you so much for having chosen la Choltière for your summer holiday and your kind comment. We are so glad to hear, that you enjoyed your family stay in "our paradise" with the big pool and the park with the beautiful old trees.
Have a beautiful continuation of summer and kindest regards to you and your family!
You will always be welcome again to discover even more details of the region :-)
