The large Christmas tree all lit up, the children’s slippers laid at its feet, the twinkling garlands…

The crackling of the chimney fire, the sweet smell of the turkey cooking, the music of the winter’s wind…

The branches of holly hanging, the festive rows of Christmas stocking, the frost on the windows…

The soothing flame of the candles, the mischievous look of the wax angels, the colourful napkins…

The chocolate yule log with its sugar figures, the marrons glacés, the sparkle of the Champagne bubbles…

The sledge in the garden, the snowman and its grin, Santa Claus’ sleigh…

 Adorned with its most beautiful jewels, Château Bouffémont invites you to a unique experience.

The magic of a Christmas evening in an extraordinary location, just for you.

Come celebrate Christmas with your family in an enchanting setting that still feels like home.

MASSAGE IN THE ROOM

You were looking forward to this stay so much you could barely contain your excitement.

You had told the Château’s staff of your compelling need to unwind in these early days of autumn. Now you are the guest… Comfortably seated in the Grand Salon, you are absorbed in a fascinating historical novel. Our butler gently interrupts and offers you the services of our masseuse known for her magical touch.

How could you refuse such an offer? Your schedule is completely free: you order a light breakfast and leave to the staff the organisation of this massage you have heard so much about. After a refined meal using seasonal vegetables, you go back to your suite.

The masseuse has joined you. She has been warned that you needed to relax, so she suggests to start with a gentle, personalized massage with essential oils in order to release all your tension. The following days will be spent on invigorating treatments to boost your energy.

You breathe deeply: you experience a deep sense of well-being. You feel at home. Surrounded by a halo of scented oils, you already feel the effects of the massage. You reopen your eyes. Before she leaves, the masseuse wraps a silky robe around you. You will see her again during your stay.

It has only been half a day since you have arrived and you are already full of spirit. Looks like this weekend will be full of benefits…

 

PRIVATE YOGA CLASS

YOGA

 

You awake feeling well rested. As you slowly come around, your eyes are drawn to the beautiful detail of your surroundings. An opulent suite with lavish décor and charming features. As you get up, you slowly wander over to the vast bedroom window, which frames the most picturesque scene. You marvel at how seamlessly the Chateaus’s hilly grounds blend into the surrounding French countryside. Suddenly, you feel a sense of freedom run  you over as you look out at the countryside stretching ahead.

After a healthy breakfast, it is time to switch off  the outside world and focus on strength, flexibility and well-being with an invigorating yoga class. Tailored to your preferences, your daily training classes can include any combination of your favorite yoga styles and sequences. You suddenly become aware of your breathing as a warm feeling of wholeness floods over you. Your mind and body now as one, you end the class feeling reconnected, recharged and rejuvenated.

After your yoga class, as guest of the Chateau, you can continue the relaxation theme with complimentary access to the Spa and pool of the Paris International Golf Club. Or perhaps it is time to savour the fresh air with a restorative walk in the luscious French countryside.

PRE-DINNER DRINK

Summer cocktail

She took a seat on the terrace to admire the late summer sky with aperitif in hand. She began to unwind as the last of the day’s sunrays stroked and teased her skin. The setting was sublime.

From the well-appointed terrace, the Chateau commanded a panorama which was engulfing as the terrace sloped down to the rolling grounds.

She took a sip of her summer cocktail – a delicate infusion of perfumed rose and dry gin. She savoured the unique aroma and thought how perfectly balanced it was. Her mind began to wander and she found that the green grounds grabbed her attention and pulled her thoughts to days gone by.

And from the grounds, there stood Chateau Bouffemont as majestic and imposing as it always had been – dazzling and reflecting the last of the day’s heat. The perfect symmetrical entrance rising proudly from the sprawling lawns.

No amount of time that passed would change this wondrous setting. As her hand rested on the stem of her martini glass, the Chateau held her mesmerised.

Suddenly, cocktail hour was over and the orange colours of sunset gave way as day broke into night.

BARBECUE


Preparing barbecue

 

August is upon us.

As hues of orange and violet fill the evening sky, the warm glow of sunset bathes this majestic setting. And as you inhale the scent of freshly cut grass, there sits Chateau Bouffemont– rising majestically from the luscious grounds.

Wisps and pillars of smoke rise and twirl high into the sky as aromas of sizzling meat and sweet-smelling grilled vegetables consume the air. The gleaming barbecue filled with mouth-watering meats and fish. The wind makes the smoke rise slightly higher and you watch as it then slowly disperses into the balmy evening air. The neatly dressed tables illuminated by soft candlelight. An enchanting aura surrounds the scene.

Laughter and chatter fill the space as you sit down with your friends and loved ones to enjoy a delicious barbecue feast. Sumptuous food prepared specially for you by our esteemed chef – washed down by a selection of the finest wines.

And, as you sip on a glass of chilled rose, you feel a soft light breeze brushing against your skin. The colors of sunset now long given way to a sky adorned with glittering stars. A magical moment that takes you back to childhood memories of delightful summer nights long forgotten but somehow here realized again. Suddenly, you feel nostalgic…

 

 

 

AFTERNOON NAP

Hamac
As a soft light breeze sweeps over the Chateau’s grounds, golden sunrays filter through a fluffy interlace of clouds.

And from the sweeping symmetrical staircase of Chateau Bouffémont, the view unfolds in undulating lines framed by statuesque pine trees. A grandness exists here – a peaceful grandness filled with a sense of historic mystery.

There is nothing to disturb you. As if completely shut off from the world. And there suspended on the green lawn, sits the soft grey hammock swinging lightly to and fro.

The gentle momentum rocking you lightly from one dream to another. Swaying this way and that on hazy summer days.

And as you stare at the clear blue skies above, you feel time begin to slow down. For it is now time to daydream in to the distance of the afternoon. Chateau Bouffémont – a picture of pure tranquility.

TIME FOR GOLF

The first rays of sunshine have just appeared, yet the first golfers are already warming up…

You look at them from your room’s terrace, tiny characters that seem surprisingly real.

Although they are 15 hectares of garden away, you can see them with the naked eye from your secret lair.

You are one of the lucky few to enjoy this panoramic view… You and your friends, who are Château Bouffémont’s guests this weekend.

The Paris International Golf Club grounds are indeed magnificent: you would love to practise your swing.

You call the butler, who gives you the access card usually available to members only, the key to this renowned place.

Created by the legendary Jack Nicklaus, this 18 hole course is only open to a handful of golf enthusiasts worldwide, and right now, you are one of them.

The smells coming from the kitchen of the Château’s resident Chef make you hungry. You are happy about that: A solid breakfast will be much needed before you face your friends on the golf course.

One big step forward seems nearly enough to reach the course… such is the Château’s magic, simple moments that become small everyday luxuries.
