Description

Photos and Description of this 6 bedroom holiday home in Poissy - "Belle Epoque" Mansion 15 minutes from Paris

Château in Normandy 40 minutes from the coast

15 minutes from the capital, this magnificent estate is tucked away in the quiet outskirts of Paris. Much like Marie-Antoinette’s hamlet, the property was originally the country estate of aristrocrats who sought a rural escape from life in the city. The house was completely modernized in 1897. At the time, its Parisian owners transformed it into a very comfortable home, while still imprinting it with the archictectural authencity of the "Belle Epoque". During this period, it was considered quite chic to entertain on the Bord de Seine ; and the nearby lifestyle of the boaters and riverside taverns where famously captured in the paintings of Renoir and Caillebotte.

Set on 6 hectares of picturesque grounds, the home sits poetically against the greenery of the area. Renovated in 2009, the house is spacious and bright. A Sino-Belgian family currently owns the property. They have carefully decorated the rooms with collectibles acquired while traveling and variety of artwork. The result is a very personal and unique place, ideally used as a relaxing family house. Spread over two floors, the house has 7 rooms and can accommodate 10 to 12 people .

THE GARDEN :

The property is located in an English style park of 6 hectares, showing a specific taste for nature very popular in France in the eighteenth century. The area has benefited from two landscaping designs, the first was done in 1800 and the second in the last century. Around the edges of the estate, there is a surrounding forest of beech trees. Beautiful cedars shade the front of the house, while an avenue of lime trees planted in 1850 pleasantly scent the air. In the park, a garden and an orchard still produce in season fruits and vegetables. These grounds are meticulously maintained all year around and for this, the estate was included in the Inventory of Historical Monuments in 2005.

LEISURE :

It is unlikely that your stay here will be anything close to boring, as there are several activities to enjoy immediately on the premises. It is an absolute rarity to be able to delight in this much space so close to Paris ! The park alone offers endless opportunity to enjoy the fresh air and perfectly maintained grounds. Picnic on the lawn, aperitif on the terrace, jog in the treelined belt way...it is all here. For the athletes in your group, badminton and basketball can be played in the garden. There is also a trampoline for the children and table tennis in the basement.

THE REGION :

The estate is located in the town of Poissy, east of the Yvelines department, near the royal cities of Versailles and Saint-Germain en Laye. World famous for the Villa Savoye, designed by the Swiss architect Le Corbusier, Poissy is a chic residential city in the western suburbs of Paris. Strategically located at the exit of the A14 motorway, it is easy to reach the capital (15 minutes). Along the Seine and surrounded by unspoilt nature, the place is known as one of the cradles of the French Impressionist movement.

ACTIVITIES:

Keeping with the tradition and culture of French Impressionism and the "Belle Epoque" art of living, one should explore some of these attractions :

- Taking a traditional boat ride from, Chatou, and visit the famous Impressionist Island (20km).

- Visit the Musée d'Orsay in Paris

- Go to see the races at the Longchamp or Saint Cloud race courses.

- Visit the famous gardens of Claude Monet in Giverny (25km) and enjoy lunch at Jardin des Plumes.

- Visit Auvers-sur-Oise, Castle of Vincent Van Gogh (80km). Other experiences not to be missed during your stay:

Demeure de rêve pour recevoir et déconnecter

  • 4 of 5

Parc classé de toute beauté entourant un manoir vaste et confortable. Pièces de réception spacieuses, sans ostentation, très claires avec vue sur le parc.

Chambres plus simples (très bonne literie).

Sentiment d'être dans un endroit d'exception mais à échelle humaine.

Rapidité d'accès par l'A14.
