Chateau Cypres is situated close to sandy beaches not far from La Rochelle. This is a wonderful area with excellent facilities for golf, fishing, water sports, bird watching, Roman & Napoleonic history and cycling (pistes criss-cross the entire region).

                              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.

                               

                              Manager info

                              About: 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.

                              Why Marennes:
                              At Simply Chateau we only work with the very best rental properties on the market. All of our properties have been handpicked and we take our customer feedback extremely seriously. We operate a ‘three strikes and you’re out’ policy - that is to say if we have 3 negative reviews relating to any of our properties we cease to advertise it. We have properties to suit every taste and budget, all chosen with care by our expert team for their unique character, fantastic features and stunning countryside locations.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:

All you need to do is provide us with the details of what you imagine your dream holiday to be, and we'll find the perfect property for you. We can 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. 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. Lowest Price Guarantee: Simply Chateau ‘simply’ processes the bookings and credit card payments on the property owner’s behalf. The owners themselves set the rates so you know you are getting the best available rental rate when you book.
