If you are after a serene and picturesque setting full of old-world charm, then Chateau Bouffemont is the destination – a place where every last detail is geared towards luxury and relaxation.

The majestic symmetrical entrance steps outside set the tone as Chateau Bouffemont rises proudly from the surrounding, sprawling grounds in a bold and imposing manner. There is something immediately infectious about this place – a picture of grand chateau serenity that permeates and oozes luxury and charm.

Stepping into the regal entrance hall of the Chateau, you will feel that you have landed into the pages of a fairy tale as the Chateau envelops you in a romantic setting of grandeur and radiance.  The opulent lobby with marble-clad floors and glamourous statues displays a theatrical grandness and the Chateau offers a delight of elegant furnishings, majestic high ceilings and glittering interior displays. The rooms are huge and lavishly decorated with an old-fashioned richness. Open fires, plump sofas and grand portraits create a homely atmosphere while the remarkable views across the grounds showcase French countryside at its best.

 As you awake in this blissfully peaceful scene, your mind may wander to the lavish days of a bygone era as the Chateau represents a powerful evocation of 19th century France. Rooms are elaborately spacious and sumptuously decorated looking out onto staggering countryside views. The abundance of clean air induces relaxing mornings and a leisurely breakfast. Breakfast in the Salon du Baron is a feast for the eyes – fresh fruit and assorted pastries grace the breakfast plates and the Salon provides the perfect imperial setting; the ceilings gracefully adorned with gleaming chandeliers.

Following breakfast, it is time to explore the elegant grounds. Whether its relaxation or action you have come for, Chateau Bouffemont has something for everyone. Staff are on hand to offer help and assistance in any form  – whether you wish to wander through the heart of the Montmorency Forest, go horse-riding, trekking or attend a cookery class.  Montmorency Forest with its varied footpaths and tracks provides the perfect exploration ground for a morning excursion.

  Taking lunch back at the Chateau is a delight. With the fresh air having whetted your appetite, our masterful chef, Aaron Politi, will design a customised, fine-dining menu in accordance with your wishes. Guests can choose between delicious seafood dishes, mouth-watering and tender meat dishes or vegetarian options with matching wines from around the world. There is also the possibility of designing your own menu around a specific theme for a wholly unique dining experience.

Tarte renversée

If you are passionate about golf, then, during the afternoon, you can peruse the prestigious Paris International Golf Club, which boasts an 18-hole course. If you wish to take things a little bit easier, then you should take a moment to rejuvenate and relax in their spa, which offers a variety of different massage therapies and treatments.

Nearing the end of the day, it’s worth making a chauffeured visit with our driver to Paris – perhaps via a short stop at Rue Saint Honoré to admire the fabulous boutiques and stylish shops. Then, onto the Paris Opera House to watch a world-class performance with pre-arranged VIP tickets booked in advance.  Our concierge will gladly handle all bookings and arrangements on your behalf.

On arrival back at the Château, our chef and butler will welcome you and serve you an exquisite dinner – hitting all the right notes from innovative to elegant. The following evening, if you fancy some entertainment whilst dining, we can arrange a unique private performance by a singer. After the show, to complete a perfect evening, you can retire with a glass of single malt by the opulent fireplace in the cosy bar.

It is the pure attention to detail and the tailor-made approach that makes the Chateau Bouffemont experience stand out – from the dedicated butler and concierge service to the Chateau’s striking design and ornate decor.  Wandering around the beautiful grounds, it truly feels like you have turned back the clock.  The options for your stay are limitless.  You can enjoy a delicious dinner at the same table where Baron Empain dined, taste the authentic masterful dishes created by our cordon bleu Chef and served according to the French rules of fine dining or you can simply daydream overlooking the spectacular views of the estate – just as the Marchioness of Preignes loved to do.

Art Deco Inspiration

 

artdeco

These days in Paris, the Art Deco movement is honored at Palais de Chaillot.

The team of Château Bouffémont couldn’t resist a quick  overview of the exhibition.

In 1925, the International Exposition of Modern Industrial and Decorative Arts was organized in Paris. As the official organizer of this event, France  is a pioneer in this field. With its perfume, architects, department stores and its glassblowers, the country builds its reputation in the arts permanently.

It was only in the 60s that the Art Deco gets its name in honor of this exposition.

A style with simple geometric lines, but so characteristic…. sleek shapes …. glamorous decoration…. Art Deco inspired aristocratic families captivated by this enthusiastic movement.

Festive time in Gatsby style, glitzy and glamorous.

Directly inspired by that period, the Dandy Lounge of Château Bouffémont recalls effervescence of the Twenties and the Thirties.

 

DANDYlounge

 

Have a seat in the comfortable Chesterfield sofas and let yourself be overwhelmed by the spirit of the place; wooden furniture with industrial lines and avant-garde objects which symbolize the modernist era ahead of its time.

Ahead of its time, Art Deco also enhances the handicraft, from sculptor to craftsman in iron, from painter to glassmaker.

Noble materials lend formal beauty to this room and are highlighted with murals by painter Elisabeth Wela, adding a finishing touch to the room’s modern ambience.

Home cinema, stereo equipment…. Dandy Lounge is an invitation to relax and allude to this spirit suitable to the Années Folles.

Aharon Politi, a culinary craftsman

Aharon5

  During your stay at Château Bouffémont, enjoy the fine cuisine of our chef Aharon Politi. A gourmet journey of refinement and authenticity…

Graduated from the renowned culinary academy Le Cordon Bleu, Aharon Politi then cut his teeth at Lasserre, Taillevent, La Grande Cascade and Le Grand Véfour. Within these prestigious institutions, he developed his skills learning from the greatest French Chefs,  which handed down to him an absolute passion for this art.

His appetite for traveling and discovering new local products helps our Chef reviving his cuisine. A bit eccentric, sometimes tinged with a touch of insolence, his recipes have that personal touch that characterizes a great cook.

Traditional but bold, Aharon Politi’s dishes are exquisite gourmet paradoxes. They take you somewhere between your childhood memories and the discovery of new flavors. A delightful and very delicate experience that you can customize to your desires.

Château Bouffémont, the Ultimate Resort for a Fairy Tale Royal Wedding and a Baronial Holiday Getaway

It is every woman’s dream to have her fairy tale wedding and feel like royalty for that special day in her life. Château Bouffémont, located in the outskirts of Paris was in fact the home of French nobility that has opened its doors to its guests for the ultimate wedding destination, as well as the ultimate holiday getaway.

AJ3B6183

This illustrious resort was built in the 19th century where many events and ceremonies for royalty were hosted by its proprietors Marquise de Preignes and Baron Empain. In 2006 a young man with a big dream and a great idea purchased and transformed the château into a luxurious ten-bedroom private resort. The resort retains the French décor of the 19th century with breathtaking statues, a touch of the Louis furnishing era, with arsenic green walls and windows adorned with golden curtains, or scarlet red walls gleamed in the light of crystal chandeliers. But the resort is so much more, it is the home and palace of French nobility of the 19th century, in the technology and comfort of the 21st century, with modern kitchen facilities, high speed WiFi, flat screen TV’s, and sound-system throughout the resort. And to top it all the service is to Baronial standards, with chefs, maid service, butlers and coordinators, all committed to making your stay a fairytale to remember and personalized to your taste.

The château is situated 30km outside of central Paris and 20 minutes from Charles De Gaulle International Airport. It includes 5 grand halls, 10 prestigious apartments, beautiful gardens and a natural park. It is the fantasy place for an elegant and luxurious wedding. The incredible rooms, balconies, service, catering and organization, will make the bride feel like a princess and the guests feel like nobility, as taken from a Marie Antoinette scene.

This stunning house of royalty has three garden levels and a natural park of 15 hectares. There are many rooms and areas you can choose from to throw your wedding, and special events within the wedding. Le Salon des Anges located in the Garden Level is a perfect setting for cocktail receptions and for the wedding party. The Ground level holds many rooms with a particular purpose. For instance Le Salon du Baron, literally the room of Barons, is a warm welcoming and romantic place to spend intimate moments near a fireplace. In the ground floor the terrace has a breathtaking view of the French idyllic scenery of Montmorency Forest. In the first floor where three suites are located you can go out on the terrace and escape through the green relaxing sight of the gardens and the park.

golf It is easy to let yourself transported through the fantasy of spending time in the château as a bride or groom, wedding guest, or just for a lavishing getaway from the gloominess of city life. The château life is a time travelers’ experience, without losing the benefits of the 21st century comforts. But it’s not all just about magnificent sights and comfort for a romantic wedding or a relaxing getaway. The service of the château is in fact the beating heart that sets the palace in motion, and makes the fantasy come to life. Not even the 19th century nobility could have had such great service and comfort while spending time in the Château Bouffémont. There is a private Chef for all your culinary needs, a butler service that creates the elegance the château was made for, concierge services to organize activities and tours around the area, and everything else you need, maid service, guardian, transportation in all forms, laundry and postal service. But what makes the stay at the château a heavenly place of relaxation and bliss is the fitness and spa facilities. For golf enthusiasts, the neighboring golf clubs are at their disposal.

The stunning surroundings of the Château can be transformed even further to your needs to make the picture of the dream and the fantasy come to life. The château caters to your specific needs and designs your wedding, or any other event from business to personal, with the help of a professional team and network commercial partners at your disposal.

Also you can go Sailing, Windsurfing, Waterskiing, Rafting, Kayaking, Swimming, Bird Watching and Boat Riding at the Recreational Park of Cergy-Pontoise. You can even pick up flight lessons at the Les Ailerons Aviation Club or get a tan at the largest River Beach of France, L’Isle-Adam. The Château Bouffémont is also at your prompt disposal to organize events of sightseeing in the the National Museum of Renaissance at Château d’Écouen, or even at the the village of Auvers-sur-Oise that inspired some of the greatest names in the art world Van Gogh, Cézanne, Corot and Daubigny. More importantly all these activities can be held either within the resort, or close by from 10 – 20 minutes of driving.
