Though few vestiges of the 12th century still remain, walking through these gates still feels like walking into a fortress. Around a vast courtyard planted with trees and decorated with lawns, the buildings stretch out and join together to form an ensemble that is both imposing and harmonious. Through the design of the interiors, where space reigns supreme, it is the spirit of the 18th century that lives on. Each piece reflects the history of the place and a discreet luxury that is more delightful that you could ever imagine. It is hard to believe that such a property could be a hotel. And yet, all the services are here. From large receptions and seminars to quiet stays, the Clos Barisseuse offers a grandiose and peaceful setting for all projects.
A long adventure steeped in history, and a family heritage linked to my great-grandfather, an investor and visionary, who bought the property. After a personal journey focused on organising receptions and a professional course followed by a few years of hotel experience, I became aware of the preservation of this heritage and its history.
The building is located in a tiny hamlet between fields, pastures and forests, two kilometres from the first village. This old 18th century farmhouse once belonged to the Château de Mello which is just a stone's throw away. Though the architecture is simple, great beauty has been instilled by the quality of the construction. Most notably, the property is made of stone from Saint Maximin which is undoubtedly the most beautiful stone sourced in France. It was used to build Notre Dame and many Parisian buildings. The many arched windows, whose rounding breaks the strict lines of the facade, add a touch of creativity. The dovecote from 1777 is the only building that is round in shape - from above, it has the allure of a donjon watching over the chateau. The six-metre high porte-cochere opens directly onto the countryside where all of the walks and hikes begin.
The property was a fortress in the 12th century, a rope factory in the 15th, and farmhouse in the 18th. It was bought by my great-grandfather in 1898 but was eventually sold and was no longer part of our family heritage. When the opportunity arose in 2001, I bought it back and transformed it into a hotel after major restoration works.
The charm of a guesthouse with the services of an intimate eighteen-room hotel. Tailor-made services for seminars and family receptions in a bucolic environment just one hour from Paris, close to Roissy and Beauvais airports.
Senlis, a royal city which remains relatively unknown despite its exceptional historical heritage and well-preserved setting with a Gothic cathedral, old cobbled streets, and ancient and medieval ramparts. It was in Senlis that Hugues Capet was elected King of France in 987. The royal abbey of Chaalis, founded in 1137 by King Louis VI le Gros, is now home to the Jacquemart-André museum. The park and rose garden have been listed as "Outstanding Gardens". Gerberoy, with only ninety inhabitants, is one of the most beautiful villages in France where half-timbered houses line the cobbled streets. The village was discovered and showcased by post-impressionist painter Henri Le Sidaner at the very beginning of the 20th century.
Four rooms at the Clos Barisseuse are equipped to host all types of professional events such as seminars, product launches, management committees and meetings. Participants can be accommodated in the eighteen rooms of the hotel.
