Comfy large studio apartment in a lovely 1864 chateau on a 16-
hectare estate with 17th century buildings (& heated pool, tennis
court, gardens, orchards), 1/2 hour from Paris. This is an authentic
chateau set in landscaped gardens, woods, & allees. The chateau is
45 minutes from Paris by train and 30 minutes by car; 10 km from

The court and estate include a small forest, great ancient trees,
gardens, orchards, a landscaped pond, an amazing greenhouse or
glasshouse, plus a tennis court and heated pool. Lots of charm and
character in comfort, peace, and quiet.

The studio has a ceramic-tiled bathroom with a shower, a ceramic-
tiled kitchenette, a dining area with antique oak table and chairs,
an area for sitting with two wicker chairs and a convertible sofa
(on birch slats, more comfortable than my bed at home) that sleeps
two, plus single Aerobed & single foam hassock/bed.

The studio is on the 2nd floor & accommodates one or two people. The
style of the studio is IKEA modern, while the chateau and grounds
are living antiques.



The studio has a ceramic-tiled bathroom with a shower, sink, and
toilet. The ceramic-tiled kitchenette has everyting you need for
cooking, including a hot plate, microwave, and fridge. Downstairs
is the kitchen the duke's family used up to the 1980s, with another
fridge with freezer, two stoves, lots of table space, and a room
with the coin-op washer and dryer. Everyone is welcome to use this
kitchen. In the apartment, the dining area has European antique oak
table and chairs. There is an area for sitting with two wicker
chairs and a convertible sofa that converts to a bed. The bed is
on birch slats, more comfortable than my bed at home. After
sleeping on this bed, I went to Ikea and converted my bed at home to
the same format. It sleeps two, and there are a single Aerobed & a
single foam hassock/bed, in case guests want to sleep separately.



At the chateau, there are lovely strolls and beautiful vistas. You
can explore the century-old cellars, the duke's staff kitchen, the
oubliette (where people were punished by being left to wither away),
the pigeon house, and other fascinating 17th-Century through 18th-
Century finds.

Terrific and charming restaurants reside on nearby rivers or on
gardens, or on both, with wonderful food at prices much lower than
in Paris--for example, 11-euro 3-course meals with wine. The
supermarche in town, 3 km away, has a vast variety of ordinary and
spectacular wine, cheese, pates, and other food, including local
produce plus the luscious refrigerated dinners by famous French
chefs. Best of all, the town has the venerable small shops--the
butcher, the baker... and everything else you might need, including
an Internet center, pharmacy, post office, rail station, .....

You can ride horses, play golf, see museums, hear music, see
theater, find hidden treasures, in the vicinity, and the Champagne
region is less than 40 minutes away. Best of anything, though, is to
lounge in your seat on the terrace of this chateau on a hill, and
watch the sun go down across your indefinitely long view, with some
local wine and local brie within easy reach.



Price per week: - 300 euros - Nov. through March except Christmas and New Year's weeks - 400 euros - April thr. June, September thr. October, and Christmas & New Year's weeks. - 500 euros - July and August. We can accept credit card or other payments in euros or US dollars. 25% reduction for 4 or more weeks. We regret that we can't have pets or smoking (because of allergies) or babies, or visits/parties of more than 3 friends, to keep the place peaceful for everyone. We ask for a 35 euro cleaning fee and a 200 euro damages deposit. We've never charged for damage.

Credit Cards Accepted



     For Sale 

Because I now have a sick parent, I am no longer able to spend time
at the chateau. I would like to lease it year-round to someone who
wants a pied-a-terre near Paris. The very low monthly price would
be 500 euros/month for 182 days of usage per year.

I also would consider selling it. My asking price is 200,000 euros,
but that is negotiable.

The beauty of the studio is that it is one of the most attractively
renovated apartments at la Trousse and it is in the chateau itself.
Most of the apartments are in the stables or orangerie. Yet at the
same time, the studio is the least expensive way to own at the
chateau. In owning the studio, you also own part of the chateau and
estate. The studio is the smallest unit in the condominium and thus
the least expensive way to own part of the chateau.
