Why Book a French Chateau?

We’ve all seen stunning images of French Chateaux on the TV or in magazines and most of us will have wondered just what it would be like to stay in such luxurious surroundings.  Imagine yourself stood on the veranda looking out across French countryside as it meanders towards the horizon.

Before now only the rich and famous would have such pleasures in life, however thanks to Simply Chateau, holidaying in such splendor is no longer an impossible dream as a holiday in a luxury French chateau is now more affordable than ever.

Originally built by the aristocracy, many French chateaux are set in stunning rural locations giving panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.  If the view from the chateaux doesn’t tempt you… then there’s the interior décor which will quite simply take your breath away!

Detailed plaster work adorns the ceilings and two hundred year old oak paneling covers the walls.  Marble floors, wide sweeping staircases, long velvet curtains, antique furniture and four poster beds could all be yours for a few days or a few weeks.

Renting a French chateau is ideal for large groups of friends and families, having numerous bedrooms and reception rooms along with extensive private grounds.  Numerous French chateaux are on offer sleeping between 30 and 69 guests, making a French chateau rental ideal for corporate gatherings, seminars or annual general meetings.
