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 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.

COCKTAIL SERVED ON THE TERRACE

DSCN3219

The warm weather of July.

Standing on the terrace, you are about to enjoy your cocktail, a delicious mix of pink lychee, lime and tonka bean. A drink that tastes like summer, specially prepared for you and your friends by our Chef. In the distance, the Domaine stretches as far as the eye can see. You do not tire of the gorgeous view in front of you.

On each side of the terrace, the majestic staircases lead your eyes to the French style gardens… Fifteen hectares of greenery surrounding the Château that are only yours to use.

Then, you turn your attention to the Paris International Golf Club, whose gigantic grounds face you. You look briefly at a handful of golfers afar; tomorrow, you will be able to play there yourself: the Château’s staff has given you the card that grants you access to the Golf Club as a member. Comfortably curled up in the garden armchairs, your friends invite you to join them: the sun sets slowly over the Montmorency forest and they would like to share this exceptional moment with you.

You have another sip of this delicious cocktail. The butler offers you a tray of finger food to share, you gladly take it before leaving the terrace to join your friends.

This weekend appears promising… it’s only the beginning…
