About Oliver's Travels - France

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 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.

Had a wonderful stay in this gorgeous property. Booked via some friends, I will certainly return. Loaded with charm, very helpful staff, lovely owner (quite a well-known author - wrote The Man With Green Fingers and others). Lovely pool. Handy for all shops and beaches. Excellent.

The chateau is located just a short stroll to village restaurant and essential shops. Larger shops, banks etc are 4km away. In this wonderful part of France there are miles of sandy beaches, islands, rivers and lots to see and do for all age groups.

The chateau is situated approximately four miles from the nearest beach (Marennes), on the edge of the village of St Just-Luzac, half an hour's drive south of the famous ancient port of La Rochelle and quarter of an hour north of the well-known seaside resort of Royan.

St Just-Luzac is on the mainland opposite the island of Oleron. This is an area rich in history that boasts the best climate in France with as many hours of sunshine as the Mediterranean coast.

Local activities include chateaux, wine tours, beaches and local markets. There is also excellent golf and bird watching in the area.
