The Chevreuse Valley
The Chevreuse Valley has long attracted interest, as evidenced by the numerous prehistoric, Celtic and Gallo-Roman archaeological sites.
Since the Middle Ages, lords, princes and then great families have established large estates here, thus constituting an exceptional historical heritage near the royal estates of Versailles and Rambouillet, consisting of châteaux, manors, parks and gardens, hunting estates, churches and chapels, mills and farms.
In the 19th century, quarries were developed to supply the sandstone paving stones for the streets of Paris.
The villages with their old millstone walls, small bucolic churches, washhouses and fountains are a delight for walkers.
The Manor is located at the end of a rural road used only by the inhabitants of the hamlet as well as by hikers, runners and cyclists to get to the forest.
From the manor house, you can directly access the footpaths that lead to the forest and discover the famous and colourful landscapes of the ‘Haute Vallée de Chevreuse’, preserved by the natural park.
You will find forest massifs and steep valleys in various shades of green and orange in autumn, brightly coloured agricultural plateaus with fields of oilseed rape and wheat dotted with poppies, rivers and streams in varying shades of blue flowing below. You may well come across a deer, hinds or pheasants on your way, so keep an eye out for them!
The region also offers a wide range of leisure activities for relaxation, sport and fun with family and friends
