Château de Bourron

Sleep in absolute luxury

Stunningly beautiful estate

Cottage

The Maison d’Artagnan, which was once the château’s fruit storehouse, has now been converted into a residential property. Like the château, it dates back to the late 16th century. The Maison d’Artagnan, which is located 50 metres from the château and moats, within 42 hectares of enclosed, walled grounds, was listed as an historic monument in 1971.

The house has five, charming and tastefully decorated double bedrooms There are three bedrooms on the ground floor with terrace access, and two bedrooms on the upper floor. All bedrooms have their own bathrooms. The entire property can be hired out on a weekly basis or the 5 bedrooms can be booked individually.

The château's

Cottage Rooms

Aramon Bedroom

In 1884, Countess Claude Sauvan d’Aramon and Count Louis de Montesquieu got married. The couple contributed to the maintenance and extension of the Bourron estate, to which Louis was the heir. The Aramon family was consistently loyal and close to the King of France. An orignal member of the Carolingian aristocracy, they joined the Templar Order in the 13th century, before its influence waned under Philippe Auguste.

Sauvage Bedroom

Madame Marie-Caroline Sauvage (1829-1887) was the great-great-grandmother of Estrella and the wife of Wlodimir de Montesquiou. They bought the Château de Bourron in 1878. A woman of particular tastes, Mme Sauvage certainly left her mark on the property, moving the château chapel to its current location (the east wing in the ‘cour d’honneur’, topped with a cross in 1883).

Le Tellier Bedroom

She is remembered in history as the governess of the King of Rome, a position she received over dinner with Napoleon, where Madame de Montesquieu refused to eat the meat at the Emperor’s table because it was Good Friday. Far from being offended, Napoleon realised that he needed this strong-willed, principled woman to look after his son. History proved him right.

Montfermeil Bedroom

Jeanne Marie Hocquart de Montfermeil (1743-1792) was the wife of Anne-Pierre de Montesquiou Fezensac (1739-1798). In the Montesquieu living room is an outstanding terracotta bust above the fireplace. Anne-Pierre de Montesquiou-Fezensac comes from a minor branch of the branch of the Lords of Artagnan and the Montesquiou family, a former noble family of Gascony.

Montesquioi Bedroom

Wlodimir was the the last of Elodie and Anatole’s three children, and bought the Château de Bourron in 1878. A living room dedicated to the Montesquiou family in the château contains his family tree, various family portraits, including that of Anatole de Montesquiou, the husband and cousin of Elodie, who was very close to Napoleon. He had the difficult task of announcing to Napoleon the failure of the latter’s ‘genius’ Russian campaign after Berezina.
