Chateau Ste Geneviève



Updated: 23-Oct-2016
Luxury French chateau rental near the Alps with stunning views

With 10 double bedrooms and more than 10 bathrooms to accommodate up to 20 guests in luxurious comfort, the Chateau Ste Genevieve even has separate staff quarters. The Chateau Ste Genevieve is available year round and the location offers an unrivalled range of activities during all the seasons.

One of Europe's oldest renovated chateaux is available for your family holiday or reunion! The Chateau Ste Genevieve is located in the Savoie region of France at the base of the French Alps. Originally built by French monks as a priory in 1032-1033, the property was transformed into a chateau by Barron Charles-Albert Favier du Noyer in 1828. The Chateau Ste Genevieve changed hands three times before being bought and completely restored by the current owners, who have brought modern charm to the chateau whilst maintaining an historical and architectural integrity.

The 10 double bedrooms all have en-suite bathrooms and are truly unique. For maximum privacy there is also a separate staff apartment. The views of the Alps and Mt. Blanc are breathtaking and host a range of activities.

In addition to the bedrooms there is also a large, fully equipped kitchen for relaxed meals and a more formal dining room. Two outdoor terraces can be used for dining and relaxing. There is also a main reception room for socializing. The library is the ideal place to relax and escape with a good book. The salon is a great place for listening to music or enjoying a glass of wine and unwinding. There is a pool table, a bar and a stereo in a games room. The home theatre comes with over 150 films to watch and satellite television. There is also a fully equipped office with PC for internet access, phone and fax.

Outside there are 17 acres of private grounds to explore with 2 dining terraces and views of the Alps & Mont-Blanc. There is also plenty of parking.

About the Manager

Simply Chateau was set up in 2003 after two old school chums enjoyed a fantastic holiday with friends in a French chateau in the Dordogne. Oliver & Ravi, the two directors of the company, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateau rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Today we deliver a wide range of luxury villas, private chateau and charming farmhouses throughout France, Italy, Spain, the UK and the Caribbean. We have something for everyone from charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateau, all handpicked and chosen with care. Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen property to guarantee you get the best booking price available.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a great trip! Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. My family truly enjoyed our stay, from our dungeon disco party, fantastic meals, to the invasion of the game room. Many great memories formed that we will never forget. On the next note, the property manager was phenomenal. A wonderful hostess that was patient with my insane family. Thank you again and we hope to get back again.

Magnificent French Chateau...

  • 5 of 5

We appreciate you sharing your magnificent French Chateau home with our clan. It means so much to us to spend this time together-two generations all under one roof. The grand rooms, gorgeous French kitchen, game room, and movie theater all have left a memory of 7 great nights together-sure to be the topic of conversation of our family for years to come! Unbelievable sunrises and sunsets enjoyed on your terraces-thank you for sharing these remarkable sights with us! We enjoyed Bernard with our wine tour of the unique Savoie region, our unbelievable Mont Blanc journey and every village tour we could find. The best of all, we would return each day and have the property manager who provided and guided all our dining experiences. memories made here are once in a lifetime-we wish our best to you and thank you.
