About the Property
House, 7 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11)
Within easy driving distance are the chateaux of Versailles and Rambouillet and the extraordinary cathedral of Chartres. Paris is 30 mins by a local train (3 min drive / 15 min walk) into the heart of Quartier Latin, or a 25 min drive to the Paris ring road. It is on the road to Normandy, with easy access to Giverny, Deauville, and the D-Day beaches.
The house is in a small town, that has a bakery, butcher, grocery and a number of restaurants within an easy stroll.
The house was built as a monastic hospital in the middle of the sixteenth century under an edict by Louis XIV, and was known as the Ancien Hotel Dieu. It was built on the ramparts of what used to be a fortified village, Neauphle le Chateau. Under the house survive cellars dating from the eleventh century. The house is built on the forward edge of a hill so has wonderful views across the garden and out over farmland to the west. The house was completely restored two years ago to enhance the ancient character while bringing in the best of modern living. It is filled with objects and books gathered over three generations by the same family, the present owner's grandfather and his father, the writer, Sir Peter Quennell.
The house has a very private garden and is hidden behind a high gate with a sun filled cobbled courtyard. There is a fountain and fish pond many hundreds of years old. Beside the house is a large garden of grass, hedges and an abundance of roses. On a lower terrace there are an organic vegetable garden, fruit trees and vines, as well as strawberries, raspberries, blackberries and kiwifruit depending on the time of year. There is also a tree house and a trampoline (with net)

The house is only 30' away from Paris by a direct train. It is within easy reach of Monet's garden at Giverny. It is on the road for the DDay landing beaches and beautiful little ports of Normandy. The chateaux of the Loire are a great day trip as well of course as Versailles and EuroDisney.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We are an English and French couple with three children. This is our primary residence and we also have a farmhouse in the centre of France that could be rented as well. We are both film makers.
Why the Owner Chose Neauphle-le-Château, France:
The house combines the best of both worlds, it is a very easy trip into the heart of Paris yet remains a wonderfully peaceful spot to come home to, with marvelous views and a fascinating history.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
The house bears witness to a long history but is a very comfortable and spacious family home. It is perfectly situated to make the best of being close to Paris and all the wonderful attractions around the city while remaining an oasis of calm. It is filled with books, comfortable furniture, wi-fi and a modern kitchen.
