About the property

House of character in a walled property in the centre of the village

This is a refined and welcoming, fully renovated in pastel colours, carefully furnished and decorated, the Bergerie will host those who like old stones, golf courses, hiking in the woods, horse riding and cycling. The house can be convivial as well as refined. It is perfect for friends who enjoy remaking the world together around a large fireplace in a cathedral living room. The dining room is ideal for joyful gatherings (table for 10 people). The gourmand people will love the kitchen and its wonderful Lacanche cooking range. In the vast mezzanine you can relax reading, listening to music or watching films. The wing of the house, ending with a beautiful dovecote, has 4 lovely bedrooms with double beds (2 beds of 160 cm and 2 beds of 140 cm) and a little spare bedroom with an 80 cm bed.

La Bergerie, a two storey house, also includes 3 bathrooms and 2 separate WC.

It has a garden with trees and two terraces you with umbrellas and lovely little garden tables. There you can enjoy the sun in the mornings and the shade in the afternoons.

The pool, surrounded by a teak solarium terrace (heated from May to October), is shared. It is situated at the back of the property, some 50 meters away from the house.

La Bergerie is located 30 m away from a medieval arch built in the old fortifications and 50 m away from the ruins of the keep. The village is one of the most beautiful medieval villages of the Île-de-France region. It did a remarkable job in protecting itself from unsightly urban development. You will need your car to go shopping to Septeuil (10 min drive) where you will find all the commodities (Carrefour minimarket, pharmacy, bakery, fresh market with a parking where there is always space, etc.). You can also go to Houdan with a 15 min drive on a lovely country road to find more traditional shops (old-fashioned hardware, souvenirs and decoration, book store, etc.)

In La Bergerie, golfers can enjoy a privileged rest after the gorgeous golf courses of La Vaucouleurs; and those who love cycling will be happy to eat some slices of bread with jam. It is also a paradise for kids and their parents as they can let the children play safely in the walled garden. And it is the perfect place for conversations with friends, while savouring an unexpected silence, so close to Paris.

About Jean-François Variot

We are not professional renters. We often spend weekends and holiday in the other part of the house. We rent the house occasionally, when we are alone in the vast - more than 800 sq.m - family owned property; that is when our children, now adults, are too busy to come and stay with us.

Jean-François Variot purchased this house in 1990

Why Jean-François Variot chose Yvelines

We have carefully restored this sheepfold, which is part of the property. We do not always rent it. Actually, by choosing our 'tenants' we have created a small group of people with whom we get along well. Therefore, we can all have a nice time, playing golf, enjoying the gastronomy or simply enjoying convivial moments. And it gives our hosts the opportunity to have a lovely pied-à-terre for extended weekends and for holiday, while saving money and worry.

What makes this house unique

La Bergerie is 45 min away from Paris, in the heart of a unique village. It possesses the style and the charm of a late 17th century house and has been fully renovated to make you feel at home. The spaces are very varied and unusual. The mezzanine, the cathedral living room with its roof frame, and the dovecote are quite remarkable. In the beautiful South-facing sunny terrace you can enjoy lovely breakfasts and in the North-facing shaded garden with trees you can have lunches fit for a painter. The fully equipped kitchen (Lacanche), the two elegant master bedrooms nestled in the silent and majestic dovecote, and the two other charm bedrooms are the key elements that will make your stay really relaxing. The care of details regarding the catering also takes part in the atmosphere of authenticity you can feel in the place. Even the materials used in the bathrooms respect the traditions.
