DE*** like to introduce you to a beautiful 17th Century building called Chateau de Pleurs
When we bought this magnificent building in 2013 it was crying out to be renovated and brought back to its former glory. It has so many original features, beautifully carved marble fireplaces, ancient tapestries and oak flooring that we have worked hard to keep its ancient charm whilst bringing in a few 21st century necessities.
After enjoying many years at Chateau de Mairy we are now ready to welcome guests to Chateau de Pleurs. We are endeavouring to have our first Christmas at the chateau with our family and to open its doors to guests in 2017.
The website we are making is a ‘work in progress’, like the chateau itself.
As we finish room by room we will add photos as we go, but in the meantime we are taking you back in time to see how things were at the beginning of the 1900s, how the building and grounds looked when it was staffed by many and inhabited by a few. Since these postcards were created the chateau was home to Russian soldiers during the First World War and later became a home for the elderly. It was last lived in over ten years ago.
We will be offering accommodation for 20 guests on two floors with eight double and two twin bedrooms, all with their own en-suite bathrooms. On the top floor there are a number of smaller let’s say slightly less ‘chateau’ bedrooms, which can be taken if needed at a per room rate. There is one double and five single rooms all with en-suite bathrooms.
The ground floor offers a beautiful entrance hall, large formal salon, informal salon with a billiard table and grand piano, dining room, fully equipped kitchen, cloakroom.
The 6 hectare grounds contain a heated pool, tennis court, lovely streams, bridges and a lake.
The chateau was fitted with a lift during its time as an old people’s home, perfect now for guests’ luggage!
