Once the four of us found the gates of Le Verger Chambellay we were in our own little country chateau paradise. In the region for a wedding we found we had clearly found an absolute gem. Our other friends scattered around the area north of Anger did not come close to our lovely estate surrounded by forest and with an extraordinarily amenable host Marc Rondeau. The house is beautifully appointed with period antiques and modern and stylish bedrooms and bath. Whether a glass of Chenin Blanc on the terrace from his cellar or an expansive French breakfast Marc could not do enough to ensure our stay was enjoyable. He directed us to an excellent restaurant La Table de Meunière, and an amazing walk along the river past Chateaus and little villages with locks for the passing barges, it is an area with many secrets to share. We could have rented horses, motorbikes, bicycles or boats to take it all in but ran out of time. It is a sleepy rural area but if you are there for a wedding at the amazing Chateau Chaillain, or just a majestic weekend in the country I'm certain you can't beat Le Vergers. As long as you have a sat nav to find it!
