Joe and I cherish our wedding day memories made possible by your impeccable attention to detail. Chateau Chalaine's romantic ambiance cannot be duplicated. Our only regret is that we did not schedule more to spend with you and your enchanting chateau.

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.

We fell in love with it as soon as we saw it

  • 5 of 5
We have not been back long from our short break in the chateau, what a beautiful place, we fell in love with it as soon as we saw it, we were looked after from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. The meals were superb and very well presented, nothing was too much trouble. It really felt very homely and very relaxing (we even got used to the church bells ringing). Zeus was always there to greet us when we got back from our day out, usually with a stick in his mouth. The surrounding area was beautiful too. On our wedding anniversary we even managed to get our photo taken in a field of sunflowers, something we have wanted to do since we got married. When we walked into the chapel for are wedding Blessing ceremony, I could have cried it was so beautiful, Fabian had done a lovely job decorating it with flowers and candles, everything went perfectly and it was a day to remember. I even managed to get the bouquet home to put on my fathers grave in Edwinstowe, Nottinghamshire. I cannot praise the chateau and staff enough. Many thanks for sharing your home with us

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.
