About Gisele Plouffe

Gisele and Guy are the owners of this property and bought it as a fixer. After restoring the interiors, they were ready for occupancy. We have lived in the Silver Lake area for over 15 years now and really enjoy it here. Gisele is a Los Angeles native and a local real estate agent, and Guy has been here over 25 years from Illinois, so that makes him a native as well. :)

Gisele Plouffe purchased this chateau / country house in 2011

Why Gisele Plouffe chose Silver Lake

This is our second VRBO rental and have had glowing reviews from our guests so far. We really enjoy it and always make sure the home is ready for our guests. Silver Lake is a very special place for us as well as Los Angeles in general. It is a wonderful place to live, and growing up here cannot imagine living anywhere else.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We love to own a piece of Los Angeles history. Built in 1920, we are sure if these walls could talk, we would have some very interesting story's of old Hollywood. As soon as we walked into this home, we knew it was the place for us. You will see while staying with us, just how special the setting and character are. From listening to the birds in the morning to the cathedral bells in the distance, it is a quiet hideaway in LA.

A Very Special Place

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay in the Chateau at Silver Lake. When you are growing tired of the hard edges and traffic of LA this is the place to return to for rest. It's an homage to a different era with witty hints of Paris. It's not granite countertops and concrete floors but very comfortable and inviting spaces. The bedroom, living room, and bathroom are upstairs as well as a little dressing room to the side of the bathroom which I always find very handy. The kitchen is down a little staircase and has everything you need including a patio for a morning coffee. The owner is very gracious with flowers in several vases and this year elegant Christmas decorations. Thank you!

An oasis away from the city

  • 5 of 5

I just got back from Paris last month and after staying at this lovely "chateau" in Silver Lake it felt like I had never left. I loved the decor and amenities in this charming house. It is in a very nice community with access to hiking, biking, horseback riding and other outdoor activities as well as fabulous restaurants. The house was cozy and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Enjoyed drinking wine and eating my breakfast out on the patio. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Silver Lake Gem

  • 4 of 5

The Chateau was amazing. This place was a hidden gem in the hills and Gisele was easy to work. A comfy bed, clean place and a central location.

Clean, quiet and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Nicely maintained property with very welcoming no fuss/no muss owner. Easy check-in and check-out. Nice bed. Very quiet location. The kitchen is downstairs and the stairs in general have old-world charm but that makes them a little difficult to negotiate. And area is not super-walkable because of hills. But it's a cool secret little area of Silver Lake, and very pleasant.
