From the classic look of the house, the proportions and the symmetry of its curved and regular cross facades, one would never guess that such contemporary and stripped back interiors that lie within. The sober tones and occasional colourful touches enhance the original, decorative features in a discreet nod to its history. Whether for holidays or professional seminars, this property will inspire its guests, just as it did for Honoré de Balzac who felt his heart and thoughts flutter here.
We bought this property for its excellent location at the edge of the Fontainebleau forest not far from Paris. We particularly appreciate this islet of greenery and the landscapes that surround it. The forest that frames the chateau and its beautiful pond is reminiscent of the Seine-et-Marne region's bucolic charm. Just an hour from Paris, this bubble of fresh air enchanted us with its well preserved environment and remarkable forest fauna.
This is a classic mansion dating back to the end of the 19th century. The current structure is not that of the original chateau. It was renovated and restructured by an interior designer. Nevertheless, several lounges still have chandeliers, staircases, beautiful mouldings, huge fireplaces and period parquet floors. The kitchen and bathrooms have also retained the charm of yesteryear.
This property dates back the end of the 19th century and is a real place of history. Madame de Berny, who inspired famous novelist Honoré de Balzac, would meet here with her lover in the 1830s. He met Laure de Berny in around 1821, he was twenty-two and she was forty-five. She provided him with a motherly love that his own mother never gave him. He was often seen here in 1829, while working on "Peau de Chagrin". Shortly before dying in 1836, it was here that Madame de Berny received the manuscript of the "Lys dans la vallée" one of Balzac's novels in moral studies. In 2017, we bought the Bouleaunière. It now hosts professional seminars and holidays when we are not staying here ourselves.
A 19th century chateau with contemporary decor, refurbished to make everyone feel good. It is a large house surrounded by three hectares of land, ideal for large meals, family celebrations and business events. It provides an elegant country-style environment to work in peace just one hour from Paris. Enjoy a unique experience in the forest with Jacques, an enthralling woodcutter and gamekeeper. By telling the story of "his forest", he shares the great lessons that he has learnt here and how to communicate with the fauna and flora. In the heart of Bouleaunière Park, guests will learn the basics of survival in the forest through a few scenarios: learning how to make a fire, filter water, build a shelter and orientate oneself. A great experience for a seminar or team building.
L'Axel is a Michelin-starred restaurant in Fontainebleau. The Japanese chef, Kunihisa Goto, serves a wide range of French cuisine. La table du Parc is an authentic and convivial restaurant laid out like a modern inn. It serves generous portions of food made with local products. Nemours has an authentic town centre along the Loing with a medieval chateau, a wash house and the Saint-Jean-Baptist Church which is listed as a Historic Monument. At the edge of the Fontainebleau forest, canoe trips are a great way to discover the wild charms of the Loing Valley and the beautiful landscape that inspired the impressionist painters. At sunrise or sunset, you can take a hot air balloon ride over the Fontainebleau chateau, the forest, the well preserved nature and the small villages.
The chateau can be fully privatised for management seminars. Two meeting rooms of 75 m2 and 25 m2 are available with a total capacity of twenty-five people. Seven guest rooms are available to accommodate guests.
