Chateau Saint-Clair offers the charm, refinement and luxury of a château with all the comforts of the 21st Century and the convenience of major transport gateways within a reasonable distance.

This magnificent estate of 8 hectares is surrounded by forest and parkland full of poplar trees and woodland with bi-centenary trees. The historical Epte River meanders its way through the grounds where the majestic château stands proudly. At the entrance of the estate a charming hamlet greets guests – the keeper’s cottage, the fisherman’s cottage on the banks of the river (which accommodates 4 guests) and an adorable hen house for fresh eggs.

Recent years have blessed the château with the care and attention of its owners; architects and interior designers with an eye for tasteful renovation and decoration, who have carefully transformed it into their much-loved home. The result is 1200sqm of refined living and sleeping space.
All 10 elegant and individual bedrooms over two floors all have ensuite bathrooms/shower rooms and beautiful views over the parkland and river. Tucked away beneath the château and expertly carved out of the rock foundations is a spectacular indoor heated pool with sauna, shower room and bar.

Tennis, walking, cycling, river-boating and amateur fishing are all possible on the estate. On its doorstep, there are plenty of magical sites to explore – châteaux, abbeys and medieval villages. This area takes visitors through some of France’s most beautiful historical events.

This stunning estate will provide tranquillity and peace in an elegant and private setting framed by lush parkland and a romantic river. Your own private paradise guaranteed to create the fondest memories.

Owner Profile

How long have you owned the property?
We have owned this property since 1990.

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
We bought this Castle in order to have a place where my mother, my 4 brothers and our families, all living in Paris, could meet and have a good time. We were looking for a property with water (river or lake), old trees (the oldest are 300 years old), minimum ten bedrooms, no noise (neighbours, planes, trains, roads or motorways…) and maximum one hour from Paris in order to be able to come whenever we wished. It took us a year to find, back in 1989. We were looking for a place in bad shape, needing to be renovated. The challenge seemed ambitious, but I am an Engineer, Architect and Interior Designer, and two of my brothers are Civil Engineers. I’m doing projects worldwide, retail, headquarters, residential and especially hotels, from economy to Palaces in more than 100 countries. I wanted to show that the place could be refurbished with the 21th century standards, whilst keeping the original style. The layout is very close to hotel standards: large, common areas where you spend your time and create good memories with the other guests, plus have the privacy of the bedrooms with a very good bed, and an ensuite bathroom and dressing room for each bedroom.

Are there any interesting stories in its history?
There are a lot of funny stories, far too many to list!

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Naturally many international architects and designers, famous managing directors, business men, politicians, singers and actors.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should really do, eat, see?
One of the reasons we had to buy this place was because Normandy is so rich with culture and activities: with many places to visit (Castles, Cathedrals, Churches, Villages), many activities (golf, horse riding, tennis), good food. 

Look at the pictures and visit the place as words are useless.
