Staying at the basses rivieres

Enjoy a timeless experience combining the refinement of
a classical interior with modern comfort.

Guests can stay in the former Maison du Vigneron, facing west with beautiful views of the French gardens and the manor house.

With an area of approximately 150sqm (1,615 sqft), the house offers three suites/bedrooms which can be booked independently (2 guests per suite) or in its entirety (6 guests).

Suite boisdenier

The suite « Boisdenier » is located on the ground floor of the Maison du Vigneron with direct access to the terrace. The suite is named after a former owner of the manor, Mr. Taboureau de Boisdenier, contractor of the King’s Works in 1765.

With a surface area of 40m2 (431sqft), it consists of three rooms: an air-conditioned bedroom of 20m2 (215 sqft) with a large canopy bed (180x200cm / Super King), a marble and wood-paneled bathroom with a walk-in shower, and a library with a wide selection of books.

The bedroom is entirely wood-paneled with an ensuite bathroom and dressing area. An 18th-century tapestry from the Royal Manufacture of Soho depicting Alexander and Diogenes serves as a backdrop to the bed with a linen canopy. A beautiful Louis XV period chest of drawers and a Louis XVI period « semainier » surmounted with terracotta and bronze sculptures complete the furnishing.

The library room in red Toile de Jouy from the Burger manufacture has a daybed and a Louis XVI period secretary. Equipped with a large library with numerous books on art, travel or famous authors, this room is ideal for relaxing after a long day.
