This highly-recommended Chateau is a one-of-a-kind B&B experience, where you live in a sumptuous castle setting in Versailles or Loire Valley style. The two luxury suites at the Château de Bonnemare are among the most beautiful B&B venues of France. Chateau de Bonnemare also propose two bedrooms located on the ground-floor in a wing of the main castle.

Bonnemare is nestled in a quiet country setting between Paris and Rouen, not far from Giverny  and les Andelys.
When you enter the estate through the Renaissance gate, you set foot in another world.
In front of you, the harmonious façade of the manor, built in 1570.
Bonnemare has been in the hands of the same family for 120 years now.

Sylvie welcomes you with the natural ease of one who grew up in the castle and knows the story of each stone. Her home is her passion, and it is your special pleasure to discover it with her.

To your left, a 450 year old lime tree hides the chapel erected in honour of St. Christopher. Nearby, the castle farmhouse has been preserved in its initial state since the 17th century, with its cowsheds and stables, cider making cellar, its own bakery…

In contrast to this bucolic world is the sophisticated delicacy and finesse of the château itself. The vast salon on the ground floor, stately as a ballroom, is at your disposal. Climbing up the monumental staircase you enter the fairytale world of two suites still decorated as in the 17th century.

The Parade Suite

Consists of the Parade Bedroom, the Boudoir, and Bath.

The Parade Bedroom

It was reserved for special guests, with its canopied four-poster bed prominently ensconced in an alcove set apart by a balustrade. The painted ceiling depicts Apollo and his chariot.

A monumental fireplace of carved gilded wood faces the bed. Above, a majestic painting by Lionello Spada, Enea and Anchise, along with portraits of King Louis the 14th, the Queen of France and the Grand Dauphin.

The Boudoir

Advancing on a four-century parquet floor you enter the Boudoir, a vaulted room with delicate 17th century frescos adorning the walls.

Above, the gods of Olympia, below, children at play painted in grisaille and trompe-l'oeil. And a delightful canopied divan.

The Bath

The Bath is a more recent creation decorated in the same spirit, in marble and Roman frescos, with modern bath, double basins and separate toilets.

The Louis the 16th Suite

With the Yellow Sitting Room, the Louis the 16th Bedroom and Bath.

The Yellow Sitting Room

Instead of a boudoir, you have a sitting room for playing cards and music. Comfortable chairs surround the fireplace and the gaming table, and you can treat your fingers to the grand piano and the harmonium that is said to have belonged to Berlioz.

Windows on both sides open onto the park, with over 20 hectares enclosed by walls and hedges.

The Louis the 16th Bedroom

Soft light, blue and pink hues, delicately carved flower garlands. This exquisite bedroom was decorated in 1777 by Charles Leblond, the specialist working for Monsieur, Louis the 16th's brother, during Louis's reign.

Stucco panels depicting scenes of noble human activities are bordered by pilasters. The characters portrayed seem about to step out of their frames.

The double bed can be converted to two singles on request.

The Kitchen

In the morning, you will discover what a true Renaissance castle kitchen looks like, a beautiful room with walls of pink brick and stone and a vaulted ceiling. The fireplace occupies an entire wall, used for boiling soup, roasting meats, baking cakes and smoking sausages.

Ask the castle owner to explain the ingenious system, invented by Leonardo de Vinci, to drive the roasting spit. Then treat yourself to a breakfast of tasty products from the farm.
