CHÂTEAU DES BRIOTTIÈRES
Château des Briottières is both a family home and a luxury hotel located in the Anjou region of the Loire Valley. The beautiful 18th century chateau has been in the same family for seven generations and the current owners, Francois and Hedwige de Valbray personally offer a very special experience to their guests at this unique property. Every aspect of the experience is elegant and refined, each of the 10 bedrooms is delightfully unique and luxurious with amazing views over the surrounding parkland. Both breakfast and dinner served to the same high standard in the impressive dining room. Prior to dinner, Francois offers an apéritif in the equally sumptuous living rooms.
Located on a 50 hectare English parkland estate, Château des Briottières provides the perfect escape
