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

Getting to the chateau posed no problem. We rented a car in Paris and drove. The location of the chateau is perfect as it provides the opportunity to do day trips to surrounding French towns such as LeMans, Caen...even driving to the beaches of Normandy. The little village is within walking distance making it convenient to pick up extra groceries, wine and other items. I highly recommend Chateau de Court. We're already talking about a return visit.

Our stay at the Chateau was not just a Birthday Celebration, it was an experience that none of our family will ever forget. It is truly a wonderful place and somewhere we would very much like to return to in the future. I received cards, email messages and numerous bouquets of flowers from my family for having organized the trip and finding such a fantastic chateau. We have all fallen in love with the history and elegance of Chateau de Court.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Paris Charles de Gaulle at 160 Kilometres

The closest train station is called L'Aigle which can be reached directly from Paris. The closest international airport is Paris Charles de Gaulle, which is 160km away.

The local town is just 10mins walk from the chateau and has two boulangeries (one with a wood-fired brick oven), a wine cave (where you can also buy the local calvados and cider for which Normandy is famous), an excellent butcher and charcutier, a mercerie (where the town’s hospitable mayor presides over sewing supplies), a pharmacy, a convenience store, a bank and a bar.

On a Sunday, you’ll be able to buy locally-produced camembert and foie gras, fresh vegetables and locally-raised meat and poultry. You???ll also note the 19th Century church with its stained windows of the saints of France and ornately carved altars. On hallowed ground outside the church is the obligatory war monument to the France’s lost generation of 1914-1918; outside the mairie is artillery from the Battle of Normandy of 1945.
