Large Groups and Family Gatherings

Fantastic “Big House” accommodation for up to 28 people – contact us now to discuss your perfect holiday!

Thanks Caroline & Bob for providing us all (24!) with such a wonderful place to stay. If we all carry out our pledge to return, you’re going to be busy! We’ve been here a week – but could have filled a month seeing everything and doing all the things we wanted to do!
Steve & Cal from the Isle of Man – August 2015 – La Chataigneraie, Exclusive Use


La Chataigneraie can offer a truly unique and magnificent setting for a large group holiday or family gathering.

Whether you are a special interest group with particular requirements, or a big extended family looking for somewhere to enjoy a festive break together, we are happy to work with you to ensure that your holiday is a success.




Each gite is completely independent but we also have plenty of communal patios, gardens and a huge central lounge where families can socialise together.

What a fantastic place!! We’ve had such a great time and it’s so nice that everyone’s been able to stay together – not many places could accommodate all 24 of us with such apparent ease! Caroline & Bob are the best hosts – thank you for a brilliant holiday!!
