I used to workI here as a companion/help for Madame de Beaufort when I was 16 back in 1976. From the travellers photos I was astonished to see that the beautiful chateau remains the same! I had a room in the attic which had been completely renovated and lined with sweet smelling pine. Madame's sonin Paris had one part of the house, the doorway is just beside the large fireplace. Madame also had a daughter who sejoured in a small farmhouse in the grounds. The chateau itself has lads of nooks and crannies - ask to go in the cellar! At the back of the house past the plush lawn you can walk through the frest into Hocquincurt. It was a one bar village when I was there. Needless to say I'm going t pay the chateau a visit as I have so many happy memories of the area, Madame and her lovely family.
