Discover the Champagne region in style and stay in a French 18th-century Château.
Set in the heart of historic Champagne region and entirely surrounded by water, Château d’isle-our-Marne is a stunning, fully restored castle where time stands still. Dating back to 1732, the façades, the dovecote, the iron gate, the roofing, and the statues of the park are all protected as historic monuments and embody the classic style of the symmetrical building.
Having first belonged to a supposed mistress of King Louis XIV, whose daughter Sophie was a close friend of the French writer and philosopher Denis Diderot, prominent figure during the Enlightenment, who stayed twice at the Château, it becomes much later the property of designer Karl Lagerfeld.
Extending over 34 acres (14 hectares) of landscaped parklands and forest, and surrounded by water on all sides, the property is accessible by a stone bridge, passing the moats which surround the Château. All revealing the classic style of the main building, the overhanging cornices, the modillion cornices, the tall windows and the rusticated masonry of the framing around the openings are all made of freestone.
Guests will be amazed by the multiple views the Château offers ; while guests will be able to enjoy the panoramic view of the main courtyard from the front façade, you’ll be able to observe the serene park that surrounds the castle from the rear of the main building. Comprising a dovecote and a farm (both remaining empty), the property also provides guests with a swimming pool immersed in the manicured gardens, a BBQ unit for delicious al fresco meals, and sun-loungers waiting for you to recline on!
The entrance door opens into a chandelier that hangs proud in the double heigh vestibule featuring a magnificent stone stairway with its wrought iron handrail that provides access to all the floors. The main building, which spans two stories above the ground floor, is topped with a slate roof that boasts tall windows.
The contemporary and elegant interiors are adorned with antique furniture, providing guests with an authentic French castle experience. A chance to enjoy a stay in grandeur and style! With a soothing colour palette and the parquet floor throughout the all Château, which blends perfectly with elegance and class, the décor is the backdrop for a modern furniture, with vintage and antique objects.
