Impress your corporate clients with first rate corporate hospitality at Chateau La Chutelière, or bring your troops for team building and rewards. 5 bedrooms sleep 15 people, and there's plenty by way of entertainment - a huge cinema room, a gym and games room, a saltwater pool and grounds of 23 acres. That gives you all the room you need for team building activites like rounders or French cricket, or for just enjoying the tranquility and exploring the poplar grove or the fruit terraces and orchard at the back of the house, or for strolling by the lavoir, across the lawns, and along the river or canal.
Treat your guests to a day out in this wonderful part of France; the ancient town of Parthenay is well worth seeing, with an old castle and ramparts to discover, and a medieval quarter with quirky half timbered buildings. Poitiers is good too, and if you go on a summers evening you might catch an impressive light display on the facade of the Romanesque church of Notre-Dame-La-Grande. There are some beautiful castles within easy reach, like Angers, Roche Courbon and Rochefoucauld, and equally appealing is Royal Abbey at Fontevraud. At Aubeterre-sur-Dronne you can spend time on the river beach playing about in kayaks, or go and see the amazing Underground Church carved out of the limestone cliffs.
Something quite unforgettable is time sent on the Marais-Poitevin; known as the ‘Green Venice’ of France, this beautiful nature reserve is a network of criss-crossing waterways - the 'green' is the duckweed that covers the surface of the canals. It's breathtaking and can be explored in canoes or punts, though you might prefer to cycle along the towpaths or have a ride in horse drawn carriages. Another trip worth making is to go over to La Rochelle on the Atlantic coast where there's an impressive Aquarium, and the opportunity to go to the Ile de Re - an idyllic island of picturesque villages, peaceful harbours, vineyards and glorious beaches; don't miss the views from the top of the Lighthouse of the Whales. Take a look at our Things To Do page and you'll find plenty more inspiration for where to take your guests, and remember that your corporate stay can be self catering or catered. Book today!
