Chateau de Foulze is situated in the stunning Champagne region, a short distance from Troyes, and it is surrounded by the beautiful French countryside. Sleeping up to 20 guests in its 11 double and twin bedrooms, and available for the exclusive use of its guests, Chateau de Foulze dates back to the 1700s and lies in 17 acres of grounds.
The grounds are immaculately presented, with a private tennis court. Guests may also delight in seeing the River Seine, running through the garden of the Chateau de Foulze.The nearest airport is at Troyes (20km). Situated in a sixteen hectare park, this lovely 18th century chateau estate is 3km from the village of Bar-sur-Seine, 20 kms from the town of Troyes, and two hours drive from Paris. The young river Seine flows through the gardens for more than a kilometre. Bar-sur-Seine has all the essential shops and there is a greater selection including supermarkets, restaurants and general facilities, in Troyes.
Troyes is a quiet town. Tucked in a loop of the Seine, it still has an unspoiled central area of delightfully narrow cobbled streets lined with medieval timbered houses. Look for Barbery, a soft round cheese cured in wood ashes from the village of the same name nearby. Southern Champagne is an area of peaceful open plains and woods, rivers and lakes, while the vineyards are further to the west and north in the Marne valley and on the slopes of the plains around Reims. For champagne tours you should visit the caves in Reims or Epernay. Golf is available in Troyes.
Other local activities include tennis, waterskiing, sailing, mountain biking, hunting, quad-tours, fishing and canoeing. There are several excellent restaurant options in the local area, including a Michelin starred restaurant 4km from Chateau de Foulze. On the ground floor the large, welcoming entrance hall leads in to the salon, which benefits from an open fireplace and is equipped with a television. Chateau de Foulze benefits from two dining areas: a less formal, family dining room, and the large, beautiful dining room which seats up to sixteen people. Conveniently, there is a WC on the ground floor. The kitchen is fully equipped with oven, microwave and dishwasher and a scullery. A huge billiard room and music centre can also be found on the ground floor.
7 of the 11 bedrooms in the chateau can be found on the first floor: 6 large double bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom that also contains an additional single bed if needed. There are three bathrooms and a separate WC on this floor. Four bedrooms, 3 twins and a double, are on the second floor, along with a separate WC. The chateau has Wi-Fi internet access.
The delightful BBQ area benefits from two fabulous tables for outdoor dining and enough room for the whole group to eat together. The area is wonderful for children to run around, and there is no need for parents to worry because the grounds are completely fenced. The stables (for horse riding), private tennis court and magnificent gardens provide plenty for the group to do, and the 1.5m river flowing through the garden is ideal for those who wish to indulge in swimming, sailing or fishing. Water sports including sailing and water skiing can also be enjoyed at the local lake. There is ample parking for cars, in both the courtyard and the garage, which can accommodate up to 3 vehicles.FacilitiesWi-Fi/Internet accessWi-FiPets allowedTennis court on siteBicycles providedGames roomOutdoor gamesWorking fireplaceHeatingChapel on siteSmoking allowed insideCaretaker/owner lives on siteRecommendedExtrasChef/Cook available (at extra cost)
