The harmony of elegance and nature

In the midst of 100 acres of forest, Le Château de Séréville welcomes you just an hour away south of Paris.
  
THE HARMONY OF ELEGANCE AND NATURE

 
THE PROPERTY
 
The  property has its own natural spring with wells and 2 ponds which surround islands and that can be reached by paddle boat.
Take the opportunity to wander quietly through the woods along the many paths and maybe comme across roe-deer, wild hare or herons.
 
Just above the ponds, stands the farm just as it was in the beginning. Close to the gate of the pasture, a well provides the water for the animals and adjacent to the farm is a small organic garden which provides part of the food for the hens & for the miniature goats.

 
LEISURE
 
   In between walks, the reading rooms as well as the music room are open. The art books are in the main "Salon".
You may also wish to taste the local honey with tea served on the south terrace overlooking the pond.

 
ACTIVITIES & TOURISM
 
Le Château de Séréville is situated south of Fontainebleau, close to many other major tourisitic sites of Burgundy.
Take time to roam through the local markets and have a taste of the region.
The area is also particularily rich in castles, archeological sites, museums, medieval villages, gardens & farms.
 
You may also want to visit the wonderful vineyards & wineries of Chablis or rent a river boat
 
For sports, there are two golf courses closeby as well as many possibilities for other activities.
