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.

      CDB is more of an experience than a hotel. If your interested in understanding what aristocratic-life might have been like then you'll fall in love with this sleepy Chateau. The Count ("Guy") and Countess ("Marnay") are regal and down-to-earth all at the same time. This...More

      Many reviews of a positive experience will often repeat the comments of others. I have such a wonderful memory of Chateau de la Barre that I hope I can leave a review that will want others to experience what I have, at this impressive Chateau and its gardens.
    It goes without saying that Comte & Comtesse de Vanssay (Guy & Marnie) owners and hosts of the Chateau are proud of their home and want others to enjoy the experience of absorbing yourself into the history of the Chateau and their family name. From the moment you meander through the grounds down the driveway and catch your first glimce of the Chateau your face lights up, a cheeky little smile appears on your face and you realise that you made a great choice. For me I realised I had got things right as I felt the tension in my wife's hand which she had placed on top of mine and then seeing the glaze of her eyes and a smile that mimiced my own. 5 days later we left to continue our holiday through France and could not stop thinking about Chateau de la Barre, Guy & Marnie and the local area. So much so we change our plans and returned to finish our honeymoon at the place were our married life began. You will be very happy if you have your own memory of Chateau de la Barre to tell.
