Explore the Chateau

Set in 20 acres of rural parkland

The Chateau is an ideal base for exploring the Loire valley. With 9 large bedrooms and 11 bathrooms the Chateau offers spacious holiday accommodation for a large group or extended family.

Guests have exclusive use of the grounds, which includes a large (12m x 6m), fully heated, swimming pool – perfect for relaxing in the summer sun.

A fully equipped kitchen and stunning panelled dining room give you flexible dining options – for those who can’t be bothered to cook we can recommend an excellent local chef.

Enjoy a workout in our fully equipped gym upstairs, or simply unwind in the spacious formal salon on the ground floor – at Chateau de bois Giraud the choice is all yours.

Children love the Chateau, and when not playing in the gardens or pool they can make use of our games room, with pool table, table tennis, playstation, a selection of dressing up costumes and plenty more surprises!

We look forward to welcoming you to the Chateau
