Less than an hour from Paris, nestled on the beautiful estate of the magnificent Château de Courances, you'll find the holiday homes of Domaine de Courances. These former workhouses of the castle have recently been carefully renovated without losing their authenticity and historic charm. For example, the old caretaker's house la Régie (at the entrance of the domain) was transformed into a beautiful family residence and the 3 houses of Le Hameau are ideal for a romantic getaway for couples.

The houses are all attractively furnished and finished with high-quality materials. Elegant classic furniture and colored decorations - such as the bright floral curtains, the vintage lamps next to the beds, and the comfortable cushions - create a warm and rural atmosphere, completely in line with its surroundings.

The houses feature comfortable living areas with a wood-burning stove or fireplace for cozy evenings, a fully equipped kitchen, and ensuite bedrooms. The private garden is the ideal place for quiet al-fresco dinners in the summer. If you prefer not to cook, meals can be delivered to your "home" and you can be pampered with massages, yoga classes, and beauty treatments!

To make the most of the outdoors, you don't have to go far; the park (of no less than 75 hectares!) of Château de Courances is a feast for the eyes and invites you for walks between ancient plane trees, ponds, ornamental lakes, and lush vegetation. You can also take the bikes of the domain and go for a bike ride on the paths of the forest of Fontainebleau which is a stone's throw away!

With Paris a short drive away, this is also an ideal home base for day trips to the French capital, and the nearby picturesque villages of Milly-la-Forêt and Barbizon offer plenty of opportunities to experience local culture and French village life.
