Recent guest reviews
We stayed in a comfort room in the newly renovated cottage, I.e., the cheapest option. However, at 212 euros at night including breakfast for two it is not exactly budget priced. For this price one expects some luxury. Whilst overall the experience was good,and we enjoyed the extensive grounds, for us there were some negatives, which detracted from the luxury experience. Firstly, whilst the free wifi is highly promoted, we did could not get satisfactory reception in our room. It was only marginal in the public area outside the room. Secondly, there are no tea and coffee making facilities in the room, and whilst tea and coffee are available in the breakfast room, this is in the main building some distance from the cottage. Thirdly there is no safe. Fourthly there is no TV. Fifthly there is no fridge or minibar in the room. In summary, the expectations are up market but the experience is a little disappointing.
Stayed here for a few days, as part of a Business Review meeting. The setting is fantastic, with beautiful grounds complimenting the castle. It's approx 90 mins from CDG airport via car, but rail links are also available. The family owners are very accommodating, and the rooms are furnished in a traditional manner, but with mod-cons like USB chargers available to keep gadgets topped up! Close to the house are several small, but quality, restaurants, so you will be guaranteed that good food and wine is close to hand. I'll plan to come here again someday for pleasure vs business.
This castle is beautiful outside but even more from the inside with rooms amazingly decorated to the tiniest of details. It feels like time travel since the castle is surrounded by a park and we cannot see anything other than the trees. I recommend it if you're looking for a romantic or relaxing stay.
To be honest, I really want to give a 5 star review for the chateau itself. The chateau is very lovely. The host, Count Guy de Cordon was very nice and down to earth. I have been staying at a few English and Scottish castles. This is my first time staying at a French chateau. It does have different feeling. Other British castles are real big hotels, with fully equipped spa, kitchen, falconry, and huge gardens. This one is a more true family setting and quiet with its old French charm. Upon my arrival, I was greeted by a French lady who did not speak English. So we used body language to communicate. My room was very comfortable. I liked the big bath tub in particular. It was more simple to walk in among the forest, with deer jumping around. The family dog enjoyed barking. The breakfast was simple and sufficient. It was my first time having breakfast in a room covered with beautiful tapestry. Other guests were all French. I was obviously the weirdo, a Chinese among French crowd. The owner gave me a warm welcome the next morning. He was the only person who spoke English to me so far. I did have dinner at Les Premices, the restaurant nearby at the previous table. The restaurant had excellent food and service, though a bit expensive for set menu with pair wine but the experience was well worth it. Now to my bad experience with the train from Gare de Lyon in Paris. I tried to buy ticket on line but was not able to do so. I noticed there was some service disruption on the day of my travel according to website. I went to Gare de Lyon early in order to handle the situation. However, it was a pure nightmare. I tried to buy ticket. The staff downstairs sent me upstairs and upstairs ticket office sent me downstairs. Some told me the R train will be running on D. But others insisted it is still R. I asked several uniformed staff which platform and time of the train. They pulled out their devices but gave me confusing information. Some said no train. Some said I needed to transfer in Melun. It was a complete chaos. I gave up on them to give me accurate information. I took a train to Fontainebleau Avon, which was a major station nearby. There was no taxi outside of Fontainebleau station at that time. I was able to call a uber. The uber drive was a Pakistan guy who spoke excellent English. I was able to reach the chateau finally after so much stress. On Sunday I wanted to go to Chateau Fontainebleau. I read other reviews saying the taxi cost €20. However, my taxi driver charged me €40, saying "weekend". I understand there might be some surcharges but never expect I got priced double. I ended paying €80 for the round trip. I wish I kept the uber driver's phone number as he told me the normal charge was €20 each way. Overall, the best is to have your own car and speak French!
We booked two rooms for our family of four. They were gracious enough to pick us up from the station and bring us back to the Chateau. We were shown the rooms, and all the facilities and left to enjoy the room and grounds for the rest of the day. They set up a reservation for us at a local restaurant and our kids had a blast playing on the grounds and their family dog. Breakfast was great the next morning and the kids enjoyed taking baths/showers with great water flow. We were taking a break from being at Disney the day before and it was a nice relaxing time in a fantastic place! Will visit again!
We trained from Paris to Marlotte. Then walked 15 minutes to Chateau. Beautiful Chateau and we were welcomed by owner and shown quickly around their fantastic home and then onto room. We had a front room which also was on corner of chateau so had two views with moat surrounding house. Very comfortable room, bed and great bathroom. Breakfast also adequate and fresh. We walked around grounds which were beautiful and relaxing. Could have stayed a week if I had time. Dinner in village which was recommended by owner Bistrot du Brot - delicious. Owner took us to train station the next morning.
My partner and I were well received by the owner of the castle! was also glad to know that language was not going to be a problem as my french is really not up to scratch! the castle also serves as a family home and it gives it that family atmosphere! very clean and well maintained. We had the room to the extreme right of the castle, very spacious with a nice big and comfy bed! the Toilets were very big and also had a tub in addition to a shower! There are also bikes available and one can take a nice ride through the woods! What I liked most was the peaceful and quiet surroundings! and of course the breakfast!
It was unique to stay here and everyone was so nice. We ate dinner in the little town near here. Easy to get to from the train station. The grounds are really nice. It was clean and comfortable to stay the night at.
We stayed at the Chateau Bourron in early July. Greeted by the suave owner the chateau is beautifully presented in a formal garden surrounded by a moat and forest. Guests are provided the run of the chateau and rooms are large and well furnished in a traditional style. Great bathrooms and amenities. A superb continental breakfast is provided with fresh bakery and fruit items. Short walk to local village with plenty of eating options. Great area for a run and trains to paris 500 metres away. Possible to be combined with a visit to Fontainbleu and a 20 euro ride to the chateau. Highly recommended.
The Chateau of Bourron is gorgeous in a magnificent setting and location to explore the area. We stayed in the new building which had just opened and was of the highest quality. The whole stay was tranquil and the breakfasts great to start the day. The Count was an excellent host. When not exploring the region we cycled around the estate through the forest.
