Château de la Barre is unique in that it offers more than a luxury accommodation. Having been in the same family for more than 600 years, the owners of Château de la Barre, Comte and Comtesse de Vanssay, 20th generation personally welcome each client as a friend, thus giving them the exclusive access to being a guest in a private home, and experiencing first hand the gracious hospitality of the closed world of French aristocracy.
From elegant weddings (private chapel) for up to 24 guests to private Garden parties in the summer, from wine tastings and VIP hunting weekends to racing Porsches on the famous Le Mans racetrack, Chateau de la Barre is equipped to arrange any number of fabulous events all year long.
At Château de la Barre, because of our contacts, we are able to open the doors to other private chateaux in our region, and arrange for a small group of our guests to have visits, and even lunch and dinner receptions, with the owners. No other venue can offer this!
