This is the second time that we stayed at Chateau Bourron in two years and it does not disappoint. Guy and Estrella Cordon, count and countess of Bourron, and owners of the chateau are warm, personable and helpful. They make a real effort to welcome and talk with all of their guests. We requested the same room, the Montgolfier which is the least expensive in the chateau and our request was met. The room is on the top floor (third) with 2 large windows, spacious, and bright. The bathroom was clean and large with a claw foot tub and a shower. The chateau is not as grand or opulent as others but it is well-maintained, clean and welcoming. Guy would always ask where we would like to dine and then proceed to make reservations for us in the restaurant of our choice.
The grounds of the chateau are lovely and peaceful for walks and biking and bikes are provided free. It is surrounded by moats and the front staircase is horseshoe shaped, ala the chateau of Fontainebleau. Chateau Bourron is a great location for visiting the city and chateau of Fontainebleau (10 min by car) and chateau Vaux le Vicomte (30 min). Chateau Fontainebleau is a must to visit. It is preferable over Versailles because there are no crowds and it is the most furnished of all the chateaus.
There is a Michelin rated restaurant called Le Premise which is located just outside the gate of Chateau Bourron. The food is to die for and prices are reasonable.
The ultimate questions we ask ourselves of any property or dining experience are: would we return? absolutely. Would we recommend it? definitely
Thank you Estrella and Guy Cordon for another wonderful experience. Merci beaucoup....until we meet again...au revoir!
