The
Experience

Your tall windows look over the great park and wooded hillside (with railway); beneath your feet are Renaissance bricks. The famous de Montmorency family built this place in the 1560’s and Françoise (nicknamed Fosseuse) was one of King Henri IV’s better-known mistresses. It is filled with lovely things: a monumental stone staircase ushers you up past antique Turkish rugs and rich wall hangings, find a secret staircase behind elegant panelling, sleep in canopied bedrooms with enormously high ceilings and glorious views. It’s not strictly formal thanks to your warm, cultured hosts who genuinely enjoy sharing their historical home. If you need any more information there’s a vast selection of historic reference books to pour over in the breakfast room and advice on where to go. Enjoy bountiful breakfasts and homemade preserves, heaps of towels and lashings of hot water, gumboots for guests by the door (all sizes for all ages) and Michelin stars a short drive. Paris is 45 minutes away – the train to the Gare du Nord is a hop down the drive; medieval villages, Monet’s garden at Giverny and craft markets are near.

Local points of interest from Shirley & Jean-Louis Marro

  • Without leaving your chair, begin with a virtual tour of our château and parkland! Go onto Youtube and click on "share your videos - le chateau -de - Fosseuse E", to see the version with English subtitles. We are 2 hours' drive from the Chunnel terminal!
  • Our 40 acres of parkland have been compared to a wild life reserve. You can see roebuck, foxes, pheasant and partridges, with crested heron, mallard ducks and dabchicks on the rivers and lake. Birdwatchers have listed up to 60 sorts of bird in the forest
  • Less than 10 miles away is the attractive little town of l'Isle Adam, with its riverside restaurants, its posh shops, cinema, colourful thrice-weekly market and splendid gardens. Romantic walkways link the island to the quays along the riverbanks
  • Vincent Van Gogh is buried in the grave-yard at Auvers-sur-Oise, just 18 kms from Fosseuse. You can see the church he so often painted, the café he patronised, and his house - but DONT miss the unique Multi-Media Impressionist Museum in the château!
  • Half-hour's drive takes you to Chantilly, an international centre of horse-racing (visit the Living Horse Museum ) and also the home, in the château, to many world-famous paintings and manuscripts, the most complete collection in France after the Louvre
  • How about a day in Paris? It is nly 45 minutes by train to the Gare du Nord. We are 2 km5 from Bornel (free car-park, Beauvais-Paris trains) and 10 kms from Persan-Beaumont (multi-storey park) where the twice -hourly commuters' trains leave from
