Property description

In the heart of the 'Bourbonnais', 25km from Moulins, sits Château du Marquis de Tracy, built during the reign of Louis XIII, and once the source of inspiration for Georges Simenon and his novel, the 'Saint Fiacre Case'.

Nestled in the heart of an English style park of 20 hectares, kept cool by 2 ponds, the elegant Château du Marquis de Tracy will comfortably accommodate up to 14 adults and 6 children in 8 bedrooms. It is fully equipped with all modern facilities but maintains the charm of an authentic castle with everything you need for your leisure including a private swimming pool.


The château is adorned with antique decoration, wood panelling, large fireplaces, paintings and hangings. There are five large bedrooms, each one with a bathroom (with bathtub and shower head) and a television. Three smaller bedrooms, each with a television, share a common bathroom (also with a bathtub and a shower head).

There is a large living room, a smaller one that also serves as a library, a dining room, and a further room equipped with TV/DVD and video. Each of these living areas has a large antique fireplace. The kitchen and laundry are fully equipped for your convenience.

Outside there is a wonderful terrace with garden furniture, a vegetable garden, ping-pong, a table football table and a large swimming pool with sunbeds.

Facilities include: BBQ, petanque ground, WiFi access, washing machine and dryer, dish washer, microwave, 2 ovens, cooking tools, satellite TV, 2 fridges with freezer.

Also within the grounds is a cottage with 3 bedrooms and a further cottage with two bedrooms in the outbuildings of the castle. These are available for larger groups should they be needed. Please enquire for further information.

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 chateaux 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 chateaux 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 chateaux, 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 Paray-le-Fresil:
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:
Free Concierge Service: As luxury rental specialists we have all the experience in the world helping each and every one of our customers find the most suitable property for their dream holiday. 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. Avoid Internet Scams: Each and every property listed on our website has been checked 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 listing website.
