Worth Knowing

History

In old notarial deeds the castle is described as 'maison maitre' (country house) and as 'gentilhommiere' (house of a nobleman). Was the first resident a nobleman or a well to do 'bourgois gentilhomme'? We do know the house was built in the pretentious style of the French country aristocracy in early to mid 18th century. Its main characteristics are a mix of layers of white sand stone and red bricks. The roof and the pillars next to the entrance gate are covered with slate tiles.

Description

The property is a chateau, in other words a castle, built in the early 18th century. Over the last decade it has been completely renovated. The chateau is very comfortable and has 7 bedrooms and 3 bath rooms and accomodates 12 people. There is a cosy kitchen with a French Lacanche oven, a living room and a dining room. There is a large fire place in the living room and wooden pannelings in most rooms. A garage has room for 2 cars and there is a newly built summer kitchen with a large BBQ fire place.

There is a small house next to the chateau, which accomodates 6 people and can be rented separately. The walls of this house have inscriptions from WW I and WW II, both from Allied Forces and Germans.

The area is quite and rural. You need a car to get around. There are a number of chateaux in the area to visit. Our property is half an hour from Amiens by car. Amiens is famous for its cathedral and interesting museums. From Amiens it takes 60 minutes by train to get to Paris, Gare Du Nord, so day trips to Paris are easy to make.

A few minutes from the chateau there is the lovely village of Doullens with several supermarkets, boucheries, boulangeries and a few restaurants.
Within half an hour drive you will find the battle fields of World War I, with several interesting museums and memorials. They are really worth a visit. Many Brittish, Americans, Canadians and Australians come to visit the graves of their ancestors who lost their lives during WW I. The house is the place to stay for ANZAC week.
The La Manche beaches are 1 hour and 15 minutes by car.

The house is ideal for a vacation. And it is often used by people who invite their European friends to come over and spend some time together. All the rooms are accesible and the chateau is for the exclusive use of the guests.
