The
Experience

Peaceful and surrounded by gardens yet not far from Chartres and its massive cathedral, 40 minutes from Versailles and under an hour from Paris. You can walk into the ancient, pretty village of Bleury St Symphorien from this fine old stone farmhouse, which was once part of the domain of Château d’Esclimont.

You stay in either end of Stephane and Soizic’s home. There’s a family apartment for four, and two more bedrooms to choose from – big, comfortable spaces with squashy sofas.

Breakfast at a long table is stuffed with good coffee, bread and croissants, fruit salad and yogurts. Join others for convivial three-course dinners, and then settle in the guest sitting room with music, books and magazines. There’s a decked terrace for cocktail parties, and a beautifully restored barn is used for weddings and events.

Location

The neighbourhood

The expansive and highly productive plains of this Beauce region are dotted with ancient windmills. Several great châteaux are in easy reach; the country house and museum belonging to the family of Marcel Proust is worth a visit; the gothic cathedral of Chartres and surrounding medieval town is a 20-minute drive. You can fish in the small lake opposite the farmhouse and sign up for a trek with the nearby equestrian centre. A day trip to Paris is a breeze.
