Chateau Picole is comfortable, both in terms of size and its facilities. As a family or with friends, you are sure to feel at home here.

About Oliver's Travels - France
Your time off is precious. So when you go away, why not make an occasion of it and book somewhere a bit… different?
At Oliver’s Travels we don’t do ordinary. But if you’re looking to rent somewhere quirky, unique and bursting with more character than a bottle of ’59 Lafite Rothschild, we’ve got some stunning luxury villas for you to choose from.
Fancy a romantic weekend for two in a lighthouse, a week away in a converted windmill, or a fortnight relaxing with friends in the grounds of a French chateau?
We’ve got them all here at Oliver’s Travels. Each one of our properties is handpicked by our team to guarantee you a truly memorable luxury villa holiday. By booking direct with the owner from around £40 per person per night, you can experience luxury without burning a hole in your pocket.
Where did it all start?
In 2003, my best mate Ravi and I spent a week at Chateau de Cardou in the Dordogne with a group of our closest friends. It was one of those holidays you never forget. The chateau was stunning, the wine was flowing and the weather was pretty much perfect. Best of all, we had the whole place to ourselves.
As it turns out, that holiday was the start of something pretty special. Before we’d even got back to England, Ravi and I had come up with the basic idea for our first business, Simply Chateau: a website where people could find and book exclusive, luxury villas without having to shell out a fortune.
Why Oliver's Travels - France chose Chatellerault
Where are we today?
We’ve grown a bit since then. We’ve now got a team of people who love travelling just as much as we do. Between us, we’ve handpicked every one of the properties you’ll find on the site.
Our emphasis is still on quirky, lavish, one-of-a-kind places to stay, but we now offer villas, castles, stately homes, beach huts and cottages, as well as chateaux – not just in France, but across Europe and the Caribbean.
You may have noticed we’ve changed our name too. Ravi took a bit of persuading, but in the end we agreed on Oliver’s Travels!
