Our bedrooms in the Maison d'Artagnan
Are you looking for a gîte or high quality B&B on the outskirts of Fontainebleau forest? The Château de Bourron has recently unveiled its brand new Standard bedrooms located in an historic residence, in the heart of the Estate.
About the place:
The Maison d’Artagnan, which was once the château’s fruit storehouse, has now been converted into a residential property. Like the château, it dates back to the late 16th century. This beautiful sandstone house is typical of the Ile-de-France region. The Maison d’Artagnan, which is located 50 metres from the château and moats, within 42 hectares of enclosed, walled grounds, was listed as an historic monument in 1971.
Ideal for a family!
The house has five, charming and tastefully decorated double bedrooms There are three bedrooms on the ground floor with terrace access, and two bedrooms on the upper floor. All bedrooms have their own bathrooms. The entire property can be hired out on a weekly basis or the 5 bedrooms can be booked individually.
Terracotta flooring on ground floor and oak on upper floor. The bathrooms are decorated with beautiful tiling and stylish taps. Sitting room enhanced by magnificent Burgundy stone fireplace. It’s a delightful place to rest and read. The bedrooms, which have retained their period furniture, are decorated with the finest fabrics from renowned manufacturers. Relax and enjoy a complete change of scene in this delightful, traditional setting.
The terrace overlooks a section of landscaped garden, probably designed by the Count of Choulot, a specialist in 19th century landscaping. The garden itself blends in perfectly with the 17th century formal garden. An absolute must: enjoy the garden illuminations at nightfall! An unusual experience: You may even be lucky enough to spot some deer grazing in front of your room!
We’re here to help: Breakfast in the château and access to reading rooms.
During your stay, you’ll also enjoy access to the château’s sitting rooms where you can relax, read or have breakfast, surrounded by beautiful, late 16th century Flemish tapestries.
The origin of the maison d’Artagnan’s name: A house, steeped in history
My wife is related to D’Artagnan, the famous Gascon with the fiery temper. D’Artagnan, who was the best known of Louis XIV’s musketeers, was given a sealed letter from the King and entrusted with the task of arresting Fouquet, the superintendent of finances who lived in the château de Vaux-le-Vicomte He died during the Maastricht siege and this charming house is dedicated to his memory.
Bedrooms with historic names!
The bedrooms are named after family members, mostly women, who played an important role in the history of the château. You can find out more about the legacy left by each of them during your stay.
