LOCATION HUNTING LODGE, THE WEST WING, IN VILLERS - EN - ARGONNE, CHAMPAGNE

GENERAL

The HUNTING LODGE is part of an estate of 6 ha with a park and a XVIth-XVIIIth century castle on a hill top with beautiful views on unspoilt countryside and forests. The chateau belonged for centuries until 1904 to the family of Adelbert von Chamisso, the famous French born, but German poet (1781-1838), biologist, explorer and creator of the worldwide bestseller Peter Schlemihl, the story of the man who lost his shadow.

The lodge is located in the heart of the historical Argonne Forest (central battle ground during World War I) on the border between Champagne and Lorraine, 9 km from Ste. Ménehould, 35 km from Chalons-en-Champagne, 45 km from Verdun in Lorraine, 80 km from Reims, 126 km from Nancy, capital of Lorraine, 168 km from Luxembourg, 196 miles from Disneyland (30 min. TGV ex Reims) and 229 km from Paris.

The estate sits at the entrance of the village of Villers-en-Argonne, described in 1900 as a ' Village coquet bâti sur les rives de l'Aisne a proximité de la foret grande (charming village build on the banks of the Aisne near the great forest. ' The castle, on a hill, overlooks the valley of the River Aisne. The hunting lodge (with two independent wings: The West Wing and East Wing) is luxuriously restored. Here only the West Wing can be booked.
