Un Château Secret – Beautiful property on the French Atlantic Coast


A large villa rental close to the village and the sea

There is nothing you won't love about this luxury rental property. Set in the heart of the village but hidden from view, this impressive manor house is just a short stroll from all amenities and restaurants. The beach is not far either, and the town of La Rochelle is just 12 kiloemetres away. You will enter a large courtyard before continuing inside to appreciate the beautiful interior. Natural light floods in to the rooms, tastefully decorated with understated elegance and cleverly laid out to ensure that each guest enjoys their own space. The sleeping quarters comprise a number of different areas which can be accessed from the hall inside, or from the courtyard. With a games room and a home cinema, there’s something to keep the whole family happy. The other side of the chateau features a spacious walled garden and heated swimming pool surrounded by a lovely deck.


Beautifulk property rental close to La Rochelle and L'Ile de Ré

Naturally, your stay in the Charente-Maritime area of France wouldn't be complete without visiting La Rochelle. Stroll through the cobbled streets of this authentic fishing town before enjoying lunch or dinner opposite the harbour. If you fancy trying your luck in this seaside resort, there is a casino which overlooks the sea. Or hop on a boat from La Rochelle to discover Fort Boyard up close, or to visit one of the islands offshore - choose from the Ile d'Aix, Ile d'Oléron or Ile de Ré. If your holidaying with your family, a trip to the La Rochelle aquarium or the La Palmyre zoo will go down a treat. For the foodies among you, your time in the Charente-Maritime will be a perfect opportunity to enjoy the local fare, such as seafood washed down with a glass of Pineau de Charentes - a sweet white wine - or Cognac.


This high-end luxury property can comfortably accommodate four to five families with children or about fifteen adults.

The swimming pool at this property is fitted with a security alarm for your safety.

  • Bill C. (UK), 11/08/2022

    July 2022 / One week stay : "Un Chateau Secret is a most charming and well appointed villa located within walking distance to the a village centre, with good shops and services. We were a family of 15 across 3 generations ranging in age from octogenarians to teenagers. Everyone enjoyed the facilities, there is space to be yourself and space to be all together. The rooms are spacious, the kitchen and dining area ideal for everyone to be together. The gardens, patio and pool are delightful with adequate seating and a fine barbecue. The pool is large and inviting. It really is all there for you to enjoy. There was a warm and friendly welcome from Debbie, who provided good information and assistance. Our dealings with the team at ChicVillas was efficient and friendly, thank you for a most enjoyable holiday. Highly recommended as an excellent holiday destination".

  • Jane G. (Irlande), 08/08/2022

    July 2022 / Two-week stay : "In July for a family celebration (ranging in age from 7 to 75), we spent two wonderful weeks enjoying the tranquil environment of Un Chateau Secret in a lovely small village. The historic entry courtyard we are sure has a story or two to tell and the house's spacious rooms provided locations for all to enjoy their own quiet time. The facilities are excellent; the Games Room hosted several highly contested table tennis matches ! The beautiful, peaceful garden provided much needed shade when the temperatures soared and the large pool allowed us to cool off and enjoy a swim or two as well. We did drag ourselves away to La Rochelle and Ile de Re but we were always very glad to return to our marvellous home. Debbie and the staff who attended the house, garden and pool were helpful, friendly and efficient. Highly recommended."

  • Marcus & Eva (Dublin), 21/04/2022

    April 2022 / One week stay : "We had an amazing time at Un Chateau Secret. The property was fantastic, the pool fabulous and Debbie was really great to deal with.

  • Gilles (France), 28/08/2020

    [translated from french] / August 2020 / One week stay : "Un Chateau Secret is a very successfull property with beautiful living space. Two more shower rooms would be necessary to be perfect. Bedding and household linen are of excellent quality. The garden is remarkable in its conception. This is the perfect place for family gatherings. The proximity of the village with an excellent butcher and bakery allowed us to prepare some feasts! In sum, it was some very enjoyable holidays! A toaster would be appreciated. Some instructions to use the sound system as well. Finally, a second parasol is necessary so that every one can have lunch in the shade."

  • Alan S.(Dubai), 08/08/2019

    "We stayed at Un Chateau Secret one week in July 2019. We were a party of 21 consisting of four families with children ranging between 12 and 21. We all absolutely loved the property : great facilities, beautiful garden and pool, with a layout that gave us sufficient space to all be together, but also to find our own quiet time. We loved the village, and with a supermarket also just 1km away, stocking up was easy. La Rochelle was quite accessible, and the coast was within easy reach. From the youngest to the oldest we had a wonderful time."

  • Martin M. (Germany), 05/09/2018

    "The chateau was indeed very nice".

  • Barbara R. (Ireland), 05/09/2018

    "We had a wondeful stay at "Un Chateau Secret"".

  • Damien S. (France), 29/08/2017

    [translated from french] "An outstanding, large and luxurious property, with a large swimming pool and a splendid restful park. We are in the middle of the village and at the same time very protected from the outside, in a beautiful enclosure"

  • Mark W. (UK), 16/08/2017

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Un Chateau Secret, recently. The villa is truly fabulous and we would recommend to anyone"

  • Nicky H. (UK), 31/07/2017

    "We booked this house for 3 families to get together with all our children, and it worked perfectly for us. The house itself is a surprising oasis behind an unassuming wall, and then you discover this magical courtyard, and the most stunning fully walled gardens. Inside the décor is immaculate and pristine, with many separate areas for lounging/entertaining, and of course many bedrooms, which meant that all the adults and the children never felt crowded, or that we had to share any space. The children adored it, and between the pool, and the games room, and climbing the trees in the garden they were content to never leave the house. All in all , we were all delighted and have already spoken about returning to the same house next year"
