About Benjamin Lucas
We are a young couple in our late 20's, I myself am French and my fiancé Australian, and we live on-site in a separate out-building so we are close by if our guests require any assistance from cleaning, repairs or questions regarding the local area and attractions. No request is too difficult, however we appreciate the want for privacy and are discreet in our happenings while guests are onsite. My parents bought this property when I was 20 and I have been in love with it since. Now my wife and I, on behalf of my parents, are managing the property and sharing the beauty and romance of the chateau with our guests. We look forward to meeting all of our guests and if you have any queries regarding the property before booking please don't hesitate to contact us.

The most amazing place !!! We've loved it
From the moment we drove through the gates we were impressed, the building itself, the friendless of Ben and his family, the rooms, the grounds, the quality of all the extras, a lot of attention has been put to details, the kitchen has any cooking gadgets you need, you'll never run out of any plates, cutlery, plenty of everything, the towels are lovely and fluffy, the wine glasses are quality ones, there are welcome little things in each room. All these details are the ones that for us make this not a great rental, but an extraordinary one.
We were 2 families of 5 and both the adults and the kids enjoyed the week 100%.
If you want to relax by the pool and Jacuzzi, this is for you, if you are the sporty type, you have a brand new tennis court, plenty of other games, and great surroundings for a walk or run.
I could go on and on, but I won't. Best summary would be to say that on the last day Ben, the owner, asked us for anything they could improve to make it a better rental, we couldn't think of anything to say.
Thanks Ben and Shelley for letting us into your chateau, thanks for all your help. I'm pretty sure it won't be the last time we see each other.
The Beever-Salinas-Rodriguez extended family
It was such a pleasure for us to have you at our place. Your family is beautiful, everybody is extremely respectful and the mixed of culture makes it very interesting.

Lovely Chateau with great facilities - perfect for a large family or group of friends.
Perfect week spent at the Chateau - beautifully clean and well presented. Near to local towns and villages for groceries and restaurants - plenty to do with a beautiful new tennis court.
Ben and Shelley are there if you need them but totally invisible otherwise!
A very special place to create family memories
We stayed at the chateau with all our extended family to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday. From our the first sight we were immediately enchanted by the scale, beauty and setting of the Chateau. We felt truly spoiled, the bedrooms were amazing, each with a luxury en-suite; the reception rooms were straight out of an 18th century romantic novel. We all enjoyed the grounds with pool and tennis court. We chose to cook most of our own meals enjoying al fresco dining on the terrace, on one evening Benjamin arranged for a chef to prepare a celebration gastronomic delight. We loved it. Benjamin and Shelley were very helpful and available if we needed them but unobtrusive. A lovely holiday.
Property was what you expect in a French Chateau
Beautifully laid out in exquisite settings. Every bedroom was a delight. Countryside as you would expect in the Loire Valley. Our hosts were charming & helpful. The chef we organised with wine was fabulous. A week to savour with good friends.
A Wonderful Place for a Family Reunion!
Our occasion to visit Chateau du Breil was the 5 year reunion with our 7 grandchildren, now ages 19-24. Iris and I had been looking for a special place to celebrate and when we saw Shelley and Ben's place on line, we grabbed it!. Located 30 minutes from Nantes and a TGV ride from Paris, we were so pleased to find a room for each person with individual bath, beautiful formal dining room and living room, large kitchen, heated pool--what else could we ask for? So, when we corresponded with the owners, they helped us arrange for a chef and our chef's tour of the Nantes marketplace, a tour of a local Muscat winery, reservations at a two star Michelin restaurant near by, fresh breads and crescents every morning. Gathering around the swimming pool, walking through the vineyards or to the nearby village, we knew we had found a place to build memories for our family. And build, we did.....Our grandkids were blown away by the place-- having come from hostels and camping areas, wine and cheese dinners--suddenly, they were part of the artisanal scene. What we didn't expect was the warmth of Ben's family, whom we invited to join us for our final dinner 4 days later. We didn't just live in luxury , we found new friends who made us feel at home and a part of their family. So, if you want a place to stay where hospitality and lifelong friendships can develop, give them a call, tell them what you are planning and what you need and they will make it happen. Tell them we sent you...C'est Magnifique.
A sweet holiday dream with all the family.
The chateau is more beautiful that we expected. The rooms and all interior are perfect, and the garden is ..., marvellous. we are a family of 14, sister, brother, husband, wife, son, dauther, mother, father... from 8 to 71 years old and all of us love our time spend there this summer. The pool is warm and the jacuzzi is hot, and the bbq is perfect. We use the kitchen and it was perfect for us like the dinning room and the piano room. I am sure we will come back soon and we will be there for more time. Benjamin, and all his family are very good host. Dont forget to try MUSCADET wine.
Una pasada de bonito. No sé si nos gustaron más las habitaciones, el jardín o los alrededores. Y el vino muscadet, claro. Hemos pasado una semana los 14, yo y mis dos hermanos, con nuestras parejas y nuestros hijos y nuestros padres. y se nos ha hecho tan corta que nos encantaría volver pronto y pasar más días. El palacete no es como viene en las fotos, es mejor, mucho mejor.
Dear Isabel, Thank you very much for your words.
We are delighted to hear that your stay fulfilled your expectations, we work hard for our guest to make the best of their holiday.
We would hope to see you again
