Overview

About the property

Holiday apartment on a Chateau Estate near Paris, Eurodisney and Champagne area

2 bedroom apartment (sleeps 5) in a converted Orangery on a Chateau Estate, 35 minutes from EuroDisney. Set amidst 40 acre private grounds, with outdoor pool and tennis court (May-Sept). 40 minutes from Paris or CDG airport by car, or 50 minutes into Paris by direct train. Two en suite bedrooms, sleeps 5.

The apartment has a ground floor open plan kitchen-diner, with patio doors onto the front terrace overlooking the picturesque Chateau de la Trousse, and back terrace onto the formal gardens towards the swimming pool. First floor has a double-bed and private shower and toilet. There are steep stairs to the upper floor, where there are three beds, with en-suite shower and toilet.

There are formal gardens and pond, woodland and orchard. 40 acres to explore. The Orangery is 5 minutes' drive into Lizy-sur-Ourq where there is a direct train (free parking) to Gare de l'Est and supermarkets and bakers. Set in glorious countryside, close to the Champagne region and 35 minutes' drive from EuroDisney. Car needed. It is 40 minutes from Charles de Gaulle airport so occasionally we get planes overhead.

Fully equipped for self-catering holidays. This is our holiday home and we'd love you to enjoy it too. The video shows the estate, but it's not our apartment in the video. This is an exclusive private Chateau estate – please respect the history of the place and the privacy of other owners and their guests. We love it and we’re sure you will too.

Wonderful May half term stay at The Orangery

  • 5 of 5

We are about to depart after a 5 night stay at this lovely property. It more than lived up to our expectations (and the hot temperatures were a bonus)!

The property was clean and tastefully decorated with more than enough space for us and our two girls. The outside space and grounds of the chateau were great. Our girls (9 and 5) enjoyed the swings in the grounds and the swimming pool. We hadn't expected to be able to use the pool a small it had sprung a leak the weekend prior to our visit (Tom the owner communicated this promptly) but it was fixed by our arrival and was very much appreciated after a day in temperatures of the high twenties.

The location of the property was perfect. We had two days at Disneyland Paris planned and this was only a half hour car journey away. We also took the girls into Paris twice which was very straightforward. We caught the train from Lizy (and changed once at Meaux). We were caught out on a couple of things (nothing to do with the property); don't forget to validate train tickets after buying and don't let the kids take scooters if you want to go into anywhere. We scooted the girls to the Eiffel Tower but my husband was unable to come in as there was nowhere to leave the scooters and we were not allowed to carry them (our fault for not checking).

A lovely family break. Thank you.

Attractive chateau setting

  • 3 of 5

Good location with easy train access to Paris. Apartment would be well suited for a family and not so much for 2 adult couples. Bed room on upper floor with 3 twin beds is good for children but stairs to this level would be challenging for older adults. Our visit was in the middle of May and the upper floor was very warm with little cooling effect from the fan. Grounds and outdoor setting was lovely.

Fantastic property in gorgeous surroundings

  • 4 of 5

We had a brilliant stay at the Orangery and many hours of fun on the tennis court! Property was very well equipped with very comfortable beds. Both the front garden and back garden provide beautiful views of the chateau and gardens. We went to Paris for the day from the station 5 mins down the road. Very easy journey and station parking free. Would love to return one day.

Loved this peaceful place!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful countryside, fabulous, quaint place. Idyllic! Great for our 2 tweens and their 2 parents. Easily sleeps 5. Main bed and bath on second floor, twin beds (3) on third floor with their own bathroom. Lots of extras like tennis rackets, bocce ball etc. living space is small but really well done. Fabulous garden view from the stove when cooking breakfast on sunny mornings and of course wonderful courtyard on the front as well. Host very responsive and easy to work with. You need to rent sheets and towels if you aren't bringing your own. Very happy with this location!
