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.

Map

Car: recommended

The property is situated on the approaches to the small, quiet village of Alderton, which lies off the beaten track, on the Deben Peninsula, in Suffolk.

Alderton lies between the Heritage Coast and the Deben estuary in an area known locally as the “Peninsula” and is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The village has a pub, The Swan and an excellent village shop/Post Office. Close by is a highly recommended riverside pub, the Ramsholt Arms, and in the next door village, Shottisham, an equally recommended pub, The Sorrel Horse.

Also nearby is the attractive market town of Woodbridge; the riverside village of Orford with its medieval castle and Snape with the famous Maltings Concert Hall and excellent shops. Slightly further afield are: the renowned bird sanctuary of Minsmere and the fashionable seaside towns of Aldeburgh and Southwold.

The immediate area is steeped with sites of historical interest: the world famous Anglo-Saxon burial site at Sutton Hoo (500AD); the Landmark Fort at Felixstowe (17th century); Martello towers along the coast (Napoleonic wars); WWI & II fortifications; Bawdsey Radar Museum (radar was developed at Bawdsey); Parham Airfield Museum (WWII) and Orford Ness (Cold War installations) to name but a few.

Great opportunities exist for birdwatching, walking, shooting in season, bicycling, horse riding, antique collecting, golf and sailing.
