From the centre of Paris, it’s only a quick drive away: going towards the northwest, you cross the Val-d’Oise department, then drive until you enter the Parc Régional du Vexin Français, an old forest where a few lakes slumber, whose southern limit is set by the River Seine. This spectacle can be seen from the sky if you choose to reach the property by air. A heliport stands ready for this purpose at the heart of the estate.Learn more
The 185-acre estate occupying a gigantic clearing in the middle of the forest is organised according to French landscaping principles. The gardens, designed by a natural-space artist, are arranged around two ponds on which swans glide silently while on the banks, thousands of migrating birds sing in the treetops. The lines traced on the lawns sketch arabesques; paths stand out against the stretches of green and invite guests to discover the treasures scattered throughout the estate: a majestic fountain, an obelisk, a superb swimming pool.
The alleys widen as they approach the residence: a marvellous château built long ago for the ambassador of a kingdom, nicknamed Le Petit Versailles due to its obvious link with Louis XIV’s residence. This gem of classic architecture houses bright, aristocratic rooms: a spacious tall-ceilinged octagonal living room; a magnificent dining room with a fireplace and a period buffet; an entrance hall in startling dimensions. Luxury and history prevail while modernity keeps a low profile – even if it asserts itself from time to time, in the form of an equipped kitchen or fitness room.
Seven suites, all with bathrooms, are found in the main building. One of these, the master bedroom enjoys a panoramic view of the lake. If there are many visitors, six guest rooms are also available in the adjoining wing.
Versailles offered a range of entertainments to its residents, and this château seems to have drawn inspiration from this model. As well as long walks through nature, it offers opportunities for lessons on oenology or cooking the local cuisine, for playing golf or going horseback riding.
