A haven of peace and tranquillity
Château de la Vigne has provided wonderful memories of fun and adventure for our family, spending every childhood summer in the Loire Valley since we bought the chateau in 2001. Now as a family of adults, the chateau offers a haven of peace and tranquillity, giving us all the opportunity to take a step back from suburban life in Surrey, just outside London, where we can slow down and enjoy some simple pleasures in life – relaxing en famille, dining alfresco and taking turns to man the BBQ!
We invite you and your family or friends to enjoy our beautiful properties and magical grounds. We look forward to welcoming you!

With little traffic and long open roads, surrounded by sunflowers and vineyards, the cycling routes are a delightful way to enjoy the natural beauty surrounding us.
Extensive grounds with a natural maze

Set off for the morning or afternoon and work your way through the natural maze surrounded by magical forests, until you reach the edge, where you can set up for a picnic with far reaching views of the adjoining fields.
