There may be no better way to step into the experience of French royalty than by spending the night in a castle. Live your own fairytale ensconced in history and luxury in the countryside just outside of Paris.
Chateau de Bourron’s history dates back to the 17th century. It was originally part of a feudal fortress, as its fortified walls of brick and stone will attest. The castle lives on as a bed and breakfast, allowing guests from the city to escape, much like royalty, for fresh air between Paris and Fontainebleau. Surrounded by the 100-acre estate, you’ll be refreshed just strolling the grounds and surveying the idyllic setting.
A stay at Chateau de Bourron capitalizes on the coziness of this setting. Imagine the personal care of a family-owned bed and breakfast, a crackling fire, and comfy furniture throughout. Rather than going the route of ultra-modernization, the chateau’s owners have captured the warmth and inviting aura of a home away from home. Wireless Internet is available throughout and other modern comforts are in place, but inconspicuously so as to avoid interference with the charm of wood frame windows, footed tubs, and canopy beds. Authentic antiques and artisan tapestries grace each room, transporting guests back to a genteel time gone by.
The castle, with its two adjacent pavilions, has 14 rooms, each distinctively appointed in the French country style. Windows overlook the grounds, and each en suite bathroom includes a unique shower and tub configuration. Some rooms include a private fireplace and sitting area for the coziest of evenings.
Breakfast is served Continental style every morning, and other meals can be taken in Les Prémices, the hotel restaurant located in the former stables. The restaurant serves French cuisine in a home-cooked, authentic manner.
To better acquaint yourself with the property explore the grounds by bike, or play a game of tennis in the warm months. Families are welcome, and the grounds are blissfully kid-friendly. The sandbox is a perennial favorite, but the simple freedom to romp and roam wins the hearts of the youngest visitors.Request Information
