3½ hours from Brussels via the A26 motorway and 2 hours from Luxembourg.
2½ hours from Paris via the A4 motorway and 30 minutes from Meuse TGV train station, with its 58-minute links to the French capital.
Bar-le-Duc, 17 km away, known as “a town of art and history”, constitutes one of France’s most outstanding Renaissance towns. It has been famous for centuries for its “Bar caviar”, an exquisite jam which is made with redcurrants that have been deseeded using a goose feather, an art that is unique in the world.
It is also where the country’s last industrial spinning mill is to be found. Bergère-de-France is a family business producing top quality French knitting wools.
The main residence
This residence, preceded by a majestic, 200 year old weeping beech tree which provides dense shade during the hot summer months, dominates the property from its terrace, reached via a superb semi-circular stairway.
Built from the light-coloured, Savonnières stone that is immediately illuminated by the slightest ray of sunlight, the main building is extended by a lower wing on the left-hand side.
Its two levels, constructed over a vaulted cellar, are simply enhanced by a stone string course, topped with high attic space concealed under slate roofs with a slight sprocket detail.
The small-paned windows have armoured, double glazed glass and indoor wooden shutters.
The facade exudes an almost austere elegance; its only extremely discreet decoration being a sundial engraved on the wall and wrought pilasters framing the main entrance door.
The right wing
Also constructed from Savonnières stone, under a roof covered with flat tiles, this wing comprises a square tower, featuring little arrow-loops. It is extended by a lower building, with small-paned picture windows widely looking out over the main courtyard.
Spanning 90 m², it includes three guest bedrooms, with a shower room, a Corian wash-hand basin and a toilet, a linen room and a large room, with a built-in kitchen for breakfasts.
The warm and welcoming decoration is enhanced by the original architectural features and bare stone.
The left wing
Symmetrical to the right-hand wing, this section also includes a tower, comprising a first bedroom, with a shower room and toilet, and a small private lounge, paved with terracotta tiles on the ground floor.
The building extending it houses a laundry room, followed by a second bedroom, with the same fixtures and fittings as the previous one. Smaller, this one stands out courtesy of its walls, lined with wool fabric to create a highly successfully cocooning effect.
And lastly, at the end, a small, 2-storey, holiday accommodation rental unit with a built-in kitchen.
Vassals and peasants fleeing danger sought safety within its perimeter walls. Over the centuries, this old fortress in the Barrois region has turned to a more peaceful way of life. The regular, symmetrical appearance of its thick walls and its steep French roofs has encouraged the benevolence of a manor house. Featuring the excellent majesty of bare stone, the bedrooms recount stories that end well to passing guests. Just like the two-hundred year old weeping beech tree in the courtyard, there is a little air of happily ever after here.
