Guests who have stayed at the Chateau have raved about the below Neighborhood attributes:
"This is a such a serene environment! We loved hearing the bell from the neighboring 1685 church and waking up to the chirping birds. I slept so deep, I can't call anything sleep! Richard, can I stay here forever? :) "
"From the property, you can take a 3-mn walk to 3 auberges, traditional French restaurants, that are within 100 yards. Great Cuisine & Local Drinks!"
"I jogged, my wife walked and the kids rode the 4 available bicycles to the 45,000-acre forest that is 100 yards behind the Property. Wow, was this a refresher from city life and pollution!"
Guests who have stayed at the Chateau have indicated these were their favorite transportation methods:
"We loved Monsieur & Madame Barbottin! Their car service with their Black Cadillac Escalade SUV (6ppl) and their Citroen Jumpy mini-van (8ppl) was so convenient. They picked us up at the Airport and our UK friends from the Eurostar Train Station. We negotiated with them to take us to Paris, Versailles and other destinations all weekend! Their rates were great for a group our size. This was the coolest Paris experience we've ever had! Thank you Thank you thank you, Richard. You were sooo great for arranging this for us."
"The local Avis store delivered a Renault mini-van for us at the Property. It was so cute and so French! Look Ma', I'm driving a Renault :) The rate was only $330 with the insurance. First, it was much cheaper than renting at the airport or in Paris. Second, it gave us flexibility to go to Paris, to Versailles and to our other destinations at our leisure. Roam, return, stay home, run to the gourmet food stores (many many times :) ...super convenient! this was a great suggestion, Richard!"
"Richard, just wanted to thank you again. My students and I used the Transilien Tram to go to Paris & Versailles. The shuttle was 100 yards from the Property, it took us to the Tram station in 5 minutes, the Tram ride was picturesque and dropped us you off directly in Central Paris in the Saint Germain area. We loved it because we used the 20-m ride on the Tram to plan our day, split into groups, and it was so cheap! $2 for the shuttle, $16 for the Tram & all the Metro rides we can do in 24-hrs. Fantastic, affordable, convenient."

We love to discover the unbeaten path in the World.

As soon as we saw the rolling hills and tree lined roads of the French countryside all the stress from airports, layovers and life diminished. Nestled in the setting of the forest, Poigny-la-Foret Chateau is everything you would ever want when visiting France. The location of the chateau is just prefect to escape the chaos of Paris. Poigny-la-Foret Chateau has been completely renovated but maintains the classic charisma of an eighteen-century chateau. This chateau has all the amenities and technology you will need for your vacation.
The train station nearby was able to get us in and out of Paris within 30 minutes and even less time to and from Versailles. Poigny-La-Foret is nestled in-between charming towns like Rambouillet and Montfort L’Amaury. A nearby lake, Etangs de Holland, provides all the family fun needed on vacation; bike rentals, paddle boats, volleyball and even ping pong. The convenience of a local Avis car rental agency gave us more freedom to adventure the French countryside and towns like Chartres and Omaha Beach.
If you are looking to find true relaxation – Poigny-la-Foret Chateau is the place. With the chirping of birds, classic church bells ringing and the breeze of the trees truly made it enchanting. The experience of staying at a chateau in the French countryside was a dream come true. We are counting the days to return.
"We spent 5 days of our vacation in Paris. Choosing this villa was the perfect decision, the property is close to Paris and Versailles, and within minutes of international renowned golf courses and two small and beautiful small towns: Monfort L'Amaury and Rambouillet.
The property is completely renovated offering the classic charm of an eighteen-century chateau with the amenities and technology needed in the 21st century.
We arranged our stay by asking the owner to provide for additional services; we had a private chauffeur 24 hours since we were very active visiting the countryside, visiting Versailles, playing golf and visiting the city as well. Private dining with a personal chef was also part of the service provided.
We will be coming back to Paris in the near future and we will stay in this beautiful, immaculate, well maintained, and service oriented property.
This chateau offers the perfect location to enjoy the city and the countryside in one trip."
My husband & I loved this luxurious and peaceful Chateau. We loved the 5-star amenities that you would find in any Paris Palace, but without the hustle and bustle of noisy Paris; not to mention the wonderful villages around the property, the authentic french restaurants, and the proximity to Versailles and Paris.
Plus, there are so many things to do for the whole family: The Poney Club, "La Bergerie Nationale"....
And the Chateau of Rambouillet is just next door, wonderful building, gorgeous rooms taking you through history. Don't forget to plan a visit to the Shell House and the Dairy.
Also, around the Chateau of Poigny-La-Foret, you will find really nice and "Chic" boutiques.
In fact, my husband and I go there every Christmas, and at other times of the year. It's so magical there specially when it snows.
My last word: If you don't like it there, you will like it nowhere.
We arrived on a monday afternoon to be fantastically surprised by this quaint and cozy chateau in Poigny la Foret.
The grounds were amazing with century-old trees everywhere.
The chateau itself is right-sized - not too big not too small. it truly felt like a french style B&B or in this case a C&B (Chateau & Breakfast).
We slept so deep on all 3 nights, only to be awakened by birds at sunrise.
The region is anchored by la Foret de Rambouillet, one of the largest forests in France, thus creating a natural ecosystem of fresh air and micro-climate. Fantastic country shopping at nearby posh Montfort L'Amaury (the Beverly Hills outside of Paris).
Great service and personal attention given by our Chateau Keeper.
The 2018 Ryder Cup will be held at the Golf National, a 15 mn drive from the Chateau. There are 12 chateaux and golf courses within a 20 mn radius.
There is also the Chateau de Rambouillet, the posh village of Montfort l'Amaury, a 10 mn drive to Versailles, and the Natural Wild Animal reserve of Thoiry.
There are 5 1-michelin star restaurants within a 10 mn drive.
