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

The Chateau des Granges was excellent, full of French character, and had very good facilities. Its situation, being on the edge of Souillac was ideal for us as we like to be able to walk to a town from where we are staying. We would go their again, and recommend it to others. In all we had a lovely week there. Thank you very much.

We will most certainly go back next year

  • 5 of 5

We live in Miami, Florida and spent a fantastic week in Chateau de Lanse. The chateau has been beautifully renovated and very tastefully decorated. It offers a level of luxury that is rarely seen when you rent luxury real estate in France or Italy. The chateau caters to the most demanding travelers and allows its visitors to develop a true sense of Burgundy. The owners of the chateau are gracious hosts who are personally committed to guarantee a consistent level of service. For families with children like ours a stay at the chateau offers an ideal occasion for real family time in an intimate and beautiful setting. We will most certainly go back next year.

At Simply Chateau we only work with the very best rental properties on the market. All of our properties have been handpicked and we take our customer feedback extremely seriously. We operate a ‘three strikes and you’re out’ policy - that is to say if we have 3 negative reviews relating to any of our properties we cease to advertise it. We have properties to suit every taste and budget, all chosen with care by our expert team for their unique character, fantastic features and stunning countryside locations.

Activity and Interests

The Ch??teau des Granges is located on the Route de Sarlat in Souillac. Walking time to Souillac town centre is 10-15 mins(2 min drive). The main Supermarket is 2-3 mins walk where you will also find an open air fruit and veg and cheese market.

It is just a 3 min walk to the banks of the Dordogne River. Local activities include canoeing, horse-riding, tennis courts, the rugby stadium and Quercyland (water park), fishing, kayaking etc. It is also 10 mins drive to Souillac Country Club for a round of golf.

Souillac is a self-sufficient town with a great array of shops, restaurants, cafés and bars. It has a great market every Friday with local farmers and artisans selling their produce.

Sarlat is approx 15-20 mins drive and is steeped in history with its narrow streets and superb market - a must visit for all. For a city fix, Brive is 15 mins drive or 20 mins by train. For wine lovers, Cahors is a short drive away where we can arrange vineyard visits on request.
