CHATEAU DE MAIRIE

Troyes Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

French chateau rental in Champagne

Chateau de Mairie is a beautiful 17th Century Monument Historic set in 15 hectares of lovely gardens and wooded grounds with its own private lake and chapel.

The gardens were designed by Le Notre who was a famous garden architect in his day and well known for the gardens he created at Versailles. There is a very relaxed atmosphere here, lots of open fireplaces to relax infront of in winter and some pretty spots in the grounds to laze away sunny afternoons. For the more active we have a billiard table and boats to take out on the lake. There is a two bedroom cottage in the grounds which has been newly renovated and is available to rent with the chateau for larger parties.

The chateau can sleep 21 guests in 10 double or twin bedrooms and a single. Most of these rooms can take extra beds very easily making it possible to sleep 26. The cottage has two double or twin bedrooms making it ideal for another 4 people, and again it would be possible to add a couple of extra beds if needed.

The chateau has three en-suite and family bathrooms and a ground floor WC, a fully equipped kitchen with large modern range and lovely antique stove, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, fridge/freezer and all the usual gadgets. There is a large table in the kitchen making it possible to eat rather cosily in there, or our guests can use the dining room which has an open fireplace and seating for 30. The huge main salon has lots of comfy seating, open fireplace and the billiard table. There is a large entrance hall and impressive sweeping staircase leading to the first floor.

The chateau is set within 30 acres of private grounds with a chapel and lake on site. The lake has a boat that can be used and can be swam in during the summer.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Hi Michele and Frans,

I just wanted to thank you both for making our stay at your chateau a memorable and delightful one. It was a perfect way to spend my birthday week and I especially appreciate your fine cooking for my birthday dinner. My friends from near and far haven't stopped talking about how much they enjoyed themselves and how much fun they all had. Your hospitality certainly made a big contribution to that. I hope the last couple of weeks have gone well and that the summer and fall will continue to be profitable and enjoyable for you, too. I went back to work this past Monday, so the busyness of the beginning of the school year sometimes tends to obscure my happy summer memories. But I keep them alive by telling my colleagues what a great time I had. Perhaps our paths will cross again. It would be a delight. Thanks again.

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 SimplyChateau.com, were amazed at what terrific value these stunning chateaux rentals represented and decided to spread the word. Soon after the website www.simplychateau.com was born.

Today we deliver the widest range of holiday chateaux in every region of France with properties to suit everybody??s needs. From charming manor houses representing great value for money to fully catered & serviced luxury chateaux. If you’re looking for a luxury French chateau holiday that you, your friends & family will never forget, look no further than Simply Chateau.

Bookings are made direct with the owner of your chosen French chateau to guarantee you get the best booking price available. We also have a fantastic range of wedding chateaux rentals, ideal for that dream destination wedding in France.

Oliver's Travels purchased this chateau / country house in 2003

Simply Chateau delivers the widest range of self-catering and catered holiday chateaux rentals throughout France. With over 260 chateaux for rent, our selection covers every type of French self-catering chateau - from catered luxury chateau rentals to charming manor houses that represent great value for money.

There's a property to suit every taste, all handpicked by our expert team for their fantastic features and stunning countryside locations.

Why not have your wedding ceremony and reception in a luxury French chateau? Weddings in France are becoming increasingly popular as they offer an unusual wedding venue and a far better value alternative to hosting your wedding in the UK. The sheer number of chateau rentals in France to choose from for your chateau wedding means it is easy to find a chateau rental (including all the bedrooms you’ll need) for the same price as a reception room rental alone would cost in the UK.

Even if you’re not getting married, holding a conference in one of our French chateaux is also an affordable alternative to a conference room rental in the UK. Chateau conferences in France represent incredible value for money, a 24 hour delegate rate starts from as little as €200 per person including hotel room, breakfast, lunch, dinner, breaks and meeting room hire.

100% Financial Guarantee - We realize that financial protection is an important consideration when choosing a holiday company so to ensure you have complete peace of mind we are bonded members of ABTA. For full details please visit www.abta.com.

Concierge Service - As holiday chateaux specialists we have all the experience in the world helping each and every one of our customers find the perfect chateau for the perfect holiday. All you need to do is provide us with any details you have of how you are imagining your dream holiday, and we'll find you the best property for you and your group. We'll make sure that every arrangement is planned to perfection and each element of your holiday has been refined. Transfers, catering, maid service, tours and activities can all be prearranged to your specific requirements...

Credit Card Payments Accepted - Simply Chateau processes the bookings and credit card payments on the chateau owner��s behalf. As soon as your booking is confirmed you will be emailed the full contact details of the chateau owner which you have booked with. This allows you to contact the owner direct should you need any further info about the chateau itself or what the surrounding area has to offer.

Each and every French chateau listed on our website has been vetted by a member of Simply Chateau��s staff to make sure that it actually exists. This ensures that you do not become a victim of an internet scam as can happen through an ordinary owner direct website.

IDEAL FOR GETTING AWAY FROM THE HUSTLE OF EVERYDAY

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed here during a recent half term break and this charming, forgive me - I don't normally do cliches, hotel proved a lovely base to explore the Dordogne and surrounding area. It has recently been converted by a couple who ran a restaurant and delicatessen in west London that we often frequented and the attention to detail that they had on those premises they have transferred to France. When I say a small hotel, I mean small in the amount of rooms, not the size of them. The space, both in the rooms, communal areas and grounds, is very conducive for a relaxing break and this is complimented by its location on the edge of small village about 30 minutes from Bergerac airport (I would recommend hiring a car). The region is very historical, Sir John Talbot met his demise nearby, and ideal for walking and generally getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

The chateau is located in a small village within walking distance of the local restaurant. The closest shops are 5 minutes drive away which include a boulangerie, pharmacy and 'corner shop'. The lovely old town of Chalons en Champagne is about 10 minutes drive where you can find large supermarkets and a covered market three times a week. Here you will also find the Grande Romaine golf course. The cathedral city of Reims is about 30 minutes away and Disneyland and Paris itself are within an hour by TGV.

We are in the heart of Champagne country and can point you in the direction of the 'route de champagne' which takes you through some pretty villages where you can taste and buy champagne and wine from small family owned producers and from the biggest champagne houses in the world. If you tire of tasting champagne you can take a boat out onto our lake or spend a peaceful afternoon fishing. In summer you can even take a dip to cool off.
