The French Art de Vivre
Enjoy the true ” vie de château”, for a week or for a week end, in a majestic historical house within a preserved natural environment.
Less than one hour and a half far from Paris and from the castles of the Loire Valley, this beautiful and grand estate offers two prestigious places to rent.
The castle
Every detail of the castle, masterpiece of elegance and refinement, will take you back to the romantic era of the 18th century’s aristocracy.
The castle offers 11 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and several living rooms ( drawing rooms, library, office) which can accommodate up to 20 personnes.
The rooms in the castle, elegantly decorated, have kept their original furniture, panelling and wooden floors.
The castle is located in the middle of a huge park with hundred-year-old trees, a swimming pool and a vegetable garden nestled in a nice French-style garden. Everything is meant for leisure and rest.
The outbuildings
Within the outbuildings, a former 19th  century’s artist’s studio has been converted into a cosy lodging.
In the cosy and refined large living-room, you will experience some memorable good times around the fireplace with family or friends. You will also enjoy the magnificent view over the castle.
A door opens from the living-room onto your own garden, just for you! There, you will make the most of the long summer evenings, seated under the lime tree, enjoying the mouthwatering smell of the barbecue…
Upstairs, you will settle down in one of the three charming bedrooms that can welcome up to 12 persons. You could choose the delightful artist’s studio decorated with a 19th century’s mural painting showing graceful horses.
You will then open the windows onto the majestic trees surrounding the estate.
Two bathrooms, completely renovated and fully equipped, will provide you with all the comfort that you need.
