Chateau de la Chance



Updated: 27-Oct-2016
Luxury French chateau rental with swimming pool

Dating back to the 11th century, the Chateau de la Chance is a magical holiday chateau in an equally magical setting. The chateau has stunning gardens, a large swimming pool, and can sleep up to 15 guests. Historic France is brought to life here.

King Henry IV of France once broke his journey at the Chateau de la Chance on his way to the South of France. The chateau is notable for hosting many famous guests and each of the 5 bedrooms is individually named in honour of the eminence of previous guests or owners.

There is a wonderful feeling of space at the Chateau de la Chance, and the owners have ensured in every way that your holiday experience will be unforgettable. Please note that the chateau is exclusively yours for the week along with its private gardens, but the swimming pool is shared with the occasional guests staying at the B&B gites on the estate. The wellness area by the pool has a new Jacuzzi, a sauna and a massage 'douche' that guests at the chateau have free access to. The Chateau enjoys 5000 square metres of private grounds.

The Chateau de la Chance has 5 large bedroom suites, 3 of which have en-suite bathrooms, to sleep up to 10 guests. 4 of the bedrooms are on the first floor, and there is a top floor bedroom and bathroom suite.

On the ground floor the kitchen is well equipped and modern. The banqueting hall (about 100m2) boasts a huge fireplace. There is also a 5m solid oak dining room table and a grand piano. In the TV room there is a TV and VHS facilities. There is also the main entrance hall and a ground floor WC.

There are 4 bedrooms on the first floor, 2 of which have en-suite bathrooms, and a further shared bathroom. Suite Henry IV is the largest and most prestigious suite. There is also a library on the first floor and a separate WC. On the second floor there is another large suite with bathroom and individual sitting room.

There is a slow running river in the grounds where one can fish and a small boat available for guests. The chateau sits in 5 hectares of gardens with a heated swimming pool measuring 14x6m (the gardens are entirely private to the chateau but the pool is shared with occasional B&B guests). There is also a BBQ, an abundance of garden furniture and space to park cars. Guests can utilize the massage, spa bath, sauna and shower facilities available at the wellness area by the pool.

We absolutely loved the chateau

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED the chateau. It is very beautiful, very modern in terms of bathrooms etc, and plenty of space for everyone. We had a couple of rainy days and we never found ourselves on top of one another in the house - lots of rooms to go and sit in and read/watch tv etc. The pool is gorgeous - very clean and again, lots of seating outside to sit around on. The grounds are lovely, Andy and Suzanne do a great job in tending to them. Speaking of Andy and Suzanne - they are lovely - extremely helpful and not at all invasive. Very kind to the children, taking them to feed the donkey and goat in the field! Both very hard workers and thorough in their work It was wonderful having Suzanne clean the house every day - it really took the pressure off of us to enjoy the holiday. They were a great resource for locations of doctors/supermarkets etc. The facilities were great - washing machine/dryer and extra fridge. Everything had been thought of - down to the towels for the pool waiting on the shelf near the back door. Little things like this make a big difference to a vacation. There was no shortage of towels, the bed linen was gorgeous. In all a very comfortable house to stay in. I think what makes the difference is that this isn't just a 'rental', but someone's home. You immediately feel at home yourself. It was a complete pleasure. My only regret is that we had to leave!!! I would love to have stayed another week, and may consider this next time. I would definitely love to stay at the chateau again.

From the Owner

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.
