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.

A PRIVATE CONCERT FOR THANKSGIVING DINNER

DANKORN1

On the occasion of Thanksgiving Celebration Dinner and exclusively for our guests, Dan Korn will give a private concert* on Friday 28th of November.

A doubly unique experience: enjoy a delicious Thanksgiving Dinner in an extraordinary and friendly venue, in the presence of a talented artist.

DAN KORN 

The Singer-songwriter Dan Korn weaves enchanting melodies around exquisitely crafted lyrics.

His evocative songs are “laden with farewells”.

Dan is currently performing with long-time collaborator Joe Sharp (double bass), Bob Turley (lead guitar) and Joel Robertson (drums).

“Korn’s gentle approach often tricks you into a false sense of security that is shattered with the ferocious honesty of his words, heightening the raw power of his vocality. I challenge you to listen to this guy’s music and not enjoy it.” – Alex Hayden, Rebel Music Blog.

Dan Korn and his band release their album ‘Of The Sea’ in March 2015.

 

*From 10 to 40 guests
Dinner – Concert: 195€ per person (discover the menu)

MASSAGE IN THE ROOM

massage

 

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…

 

VANITY FAIR – YOO SAY ” CHATEAU “

Vanity Fair

private party in fine style? There’s nothing quite like a French Château…

Marking milestone birthdays or anniversaries can be tricky. Or course you want to celebrate with friends. But having your own house and garden trampled under muddy feet may not appeal and a big-city “venue” may seem a bit impersonal. So why not go for a Château? France as plenty of them.  The wonderfully named Château Bouffémont – strawberries-and-cream, part Disney, part Kubrick has lately emerged from a complete refurb and is designed for private parties. It sleeps up to 27 and the hotel-source crack team encourage you to treat it entirely as your home. All manner of  activities are on hand-aquatic, equestrian, you name it – either in the grounds or right next door, to keep your guests happily occupied. Everything can be included , so no one has to see a price list. Convenient? Très. The Château is 30 minutes from Charles de Gaulle airport and under an hour  from the Gare du Nord. The best thing? At the end of a long week-end, you can just wave ” Au revoir ” and someone else will do the clearing-up. James Ogilvy.
