As soon as we saw the rolling hills and tree lined roads of the French countryside all the stress from airports, layovers and life diminished. Nestled in the setting of the forest, Poigny-la-Foret Chateau is everything you would ever want when visiting France. The location of the chateau is just prefect to escape the chaos of Paris. Poigny-la-Foret Chateau has been completely renovated but maintains the classic charisma of an eighteen-century chateau. This chateau has all the amenities and technology you will need for your vacation.
The train station nearby was able to get us in and out of Paris within 30 minutes and even less time to and from Versailles. Poigny-La-Foret is nestled in-between charming towns like Rambouillet and Montfort L’Amaury. A nearby lake, Etangs de Holland, provides all the family fun needed on vacation; bike rentals, paddle boats, volleyball and even ping pong. The convenience of a local Avis car rental agency gave us more freedom to adventure the French countryside and towns like Chartres and Omaha Beach.
If you are looking to find true relaxation – Poigny-la-Foret Chateau is the place. With the chirping of birds, classic church bells ringing and the breeze of the trees truly made it enchanting. The experience of staying at a chateau in the French countryside was a dream come true. We are counting the days to return.
