Prestigious Family Suite Esprit de Jouy Verte & Bleue

Enjoy the romantic French art de vivre of bygone times, in this suite with its comfortable king size four poster bed and single bed, XVIII century antiques, oil paintings and toile de Jouy fabric covering the walls. Two Juliet balconies and 4 windows overlook the garden, the park and the family chapel.

One emerald green, the other royal blue, these two adjoining, yet separate rooms recall all the splendours of French XVIII century “Art de Vivre”. The Chambre Esprit de Jouy Verte is the most romantic bedroom of the château, with a king size four poster bed, a Juliet balcony plus a large window overlooking the garden and park.

The emerald green toile de Jouy fabric on the walls provides an elegant setting for the period Louis XVI antiques and oil paintings. En-suite bathroom & toilet.

Sharing the same elegance, the Esprit de Jouy Bleue room, offers an authentic Louis XVI single bed 1m30 and has its own en-suite shower and toilet. This Suite has also a dressing room.

The hearty English breakfast, served on fine porcelain, is presented with home-made jams and fresh seasonal fruit from the castle garden. You will thus savour the beginning of a peaceful day in beautiful surroundings.

The Count of Vanssay will invite you, if you wish, for a visit of the castle, during which he will tie in the history of the Vanssay family with the History of France. Afterwards, enjoy a serene stroll into the untouched nature of the flowered garden and luxuriant park beyond.
