An exceptional family welcomes you to a big, warm, art-laden house where life is exciting, the woods beckon and agility is an advantage...

These exceptional people – an Argentine artist, an eccentric English photographer, their four excellent children – will open their unconventional arms and carry you into their wide-ranging interests: art and history, travel and ancestors. They found a near-ruin and turned it into an elegant, airy family house full of paintings, books and curiosities. Up its own steep stair, your gentle third-floor room is big, beamy, slathered in little ancestral portraits and graced by a great tin bath before the dormer window – try it. The shower room is up two high steps through a very low door. Wonderful, if not for the halt and lame!

Local points of interest from
Hugh & Celina Arnold:

  • Just 20 minutes by train from central Paris - our favourites there are the Rodin Museum, the catacombs and the Louvre - while the famous flea market of St Ouen is within easy reach at the weekend.
  • The Verrières golf course is opposite the house: play a round or just practise your drives.
  • Walk in peace for miles in the vast Forest of Verrières without seeing a soul and, perched up high, admire the views over the the surrounding countryside. Walk or bicycle along the stunning protected Bièvre valley, another slice of paradise.
  • Royal memories are legion here: the Toile de Jouy manufacturing museum, which supplied Marie-Antoinette with fabrics, is 8km away; Versailles is 12km (don't miss the King's potager); further south are the stunning Château and water gardens of Courances.
  • The ceramics museum at Sèvres is a treasure-house of amazing concoctions in porcelain and paint.
  • The Château de Sceaux, 6km away, houses the local history museum and its superb French-style park is a favourite destination for families and exercise fanatics. You can fish in the canals and ponds, too.

"We spent 10 days at La Candelaria in August 2013. The house itself is charming, full of character & everything we could want from a special Sawday stay. But the best thing about it is Hugh &Celina and their family. They made us feel so welcome and went out of their way to make us as comfortable as possible. The House is brilliantly placed to explore the countryside, towns and villages, chateaux and parks as well as Euro Disney. We traveled with our 2 children (aged 4&6) who breakfasted most mornings with Celina and her gorgeous children while we had a lie-in.. what a treat! Highly recommended!"
