Château, wooden wine vat, cave: here are three quirky places to spend the night that will make your visit to the Loire Valley vineyard a trip you will never forget.

Wine estates, châteaux, wine cellars, wineries... the world of wine has so many places to discover!

The Loire Valley has a long tradition of winemaking and also some unique places to spend the night. Inspired by iconic locations associated with vine-growing and oenology, they are guaranteed to make this an unforgettable trip to this renowned wine region.

Close to the Fiefs Vendéens AOC production area, a warm welcome awaits you at Château de la Sébrandière, set amidst the vines and a French-style garden. This lavish residence and former abbey combines the charm of old stone with modern comforts, and offers its guests a truly world-class welcome. To make the most of their stay, visitors can choose from a selection of wine-related activities, from an introduction to wine tasting to a walk or cycle through the vineyard.


A trip to the Nantes area that you’ll never forget! To fully immerse its guests in the world of winemaking, Vignoble Marchais offers the chance to stay in a giant wooden wine vat. You can also discover the history of the vine, wine vats and wine itself on an educational trail. An aperitif kit, guided tasting and breakfast basket are included in this extremely unusual wine-discovery package.


And last but not least, the Demeure de la Vignole – in the Saumur wine region – offers guests the chance to stay in the caves of a former troglodytic village! In a hillside overlooking the Loire river, this unique hotel has rooms carved into the rock, a stunning troglodytic swimming pool and suites in a beautiful tufa stone building that dates back to the 17th century. Close to the Abbey of Fontevraud and the Châteaux of Montsoreau and Saumur, this hotel is the perfect spot from which to explore the Loire Valley and its historic and winemaking heritage.
