Just a few minutes from Angers lies the Château de la Perrière, a historic building which has witnessed France’s illustrious past. It dates back to the seventeenth century; rumor has it that the Marquise de Sévigné, known for her wonderfully skillful and witty letter-writing, once stayed there. Recently acquired by the Grande Maison Younan Collection, the Château de la Perrière, with its incredible past, is now looking to the future.
The beautiful Château de la Perrière is in the heart of the Loire Valley in Avrillé, surrounded by lush countryside. This gorgeous Renaissance building, built on the foundations of a thirteenth-century manor house, was acquired in 1603 by the wealthy Goddes de Varennes family and passed down from generation to generation until the twentieth century. Listed as a historic monument, this architectural gem was finally restored to its former glory in 2008, after 26 years of work. With a courtyard, French formal gardens, a chapel and a majestic terrace overlooking an 18-hole golf course occupying 75 hectares, the Château beautifully combines the past and the present to offer an extraordinary and unique reception area for private and professional events!
It’s beautifully quiet and nestled away in stunning grounds: an ideal setting for seminars, product launches and weddings. Indeed, its size, royal splendor and gourmet catering make the Château a particularly sought-after venue. With a total area of 2000m² and a 450-person capacity, the Château has 7 reception rooms and 10 adjoining and customizable meeting rooms with high-speed Wi-Fi. The Château’s French formal gardens cover some 3000m², recreating the incredible grandeur of its past. Whatever the event, guests are sure to enjoy the French art of hospitality thanks to the Château’s elegant cuisine which cleverly combines emotion and tradition. Ice-cold lobster consommé, sea bream fillet with Noilly sauce, lamb stew with seasonal vegetables and gianduja and tonka bean parfait are just some of the delicious dishes on offer.
Recently acquired by the Grande Maison Younan Collection, the Château de la Perrière is set to enjoy a new start. The Château’s past makes it a truly magical setting for private and professional receptions; in addition to this, luxury hotel accommodation is going to be developed, adding a new chapter to the property’s history.
The Château’s website will soon be online: the perfect way to book your event.
