Just south of the river Oise sits the village of Ognon, where the pastoral charm of this Picardy chateau will win your heart. Work and play are equally at home in this serene, country-style home just 45 minutes outside of Paris.

Up to 12 guests can stay in the chateau and appreciate the modern comforts, like the recently re-done en suite bathrooms and updated kitchen. Outside, there is a pretty stone terrace with tables, where you can dine al-fresco beside the neatly kept garden. Children will have plenty of playtime in the large garden, or on the trampoline and swing-set. Larger groups can also rent the separate annexe located next to the pool, which sleeps an additional 5 guests.

The location of this chateau leaves nothing to be desired; all within an hour’s drive you’ll find the historical commune of Senlis (6 km), the castles and Musée Condé at Chantilly (17 km), Paris (60 km), and the Palace of Versailles (75 km). But there’s no need to travel far afield - local walks through the forests of Halatte, Compiègne and Ermenonville will also delight you and yours.

The village of Ognon has kept its authenticity since the first Lords of Ognon took  up residence. In 1526, François 1st took hunting expeditions in the area, right in the heart of the "three forests" Halatte, Ermenonville and Chantilly.

The house is also designed to accommodate business seminars and equipped with a dedicated room with a large screen, and catering for meals.

Chateau de Garmeaux is only 20 minutes from Paris-Charles-de-Gaulle Airport and 50 minutes from Paris-Beauvais-Tillé Airport.

Good news! For a little extra, this property can be booked as a Vill’otel

Yey! Wait… what is that?
It’s the perfect combo of the privacy of your own personal villa, with all the luxury and convenience of a hotel.

What can be arranged?
Breakfast, cleaning, welcome drinks and hamper, plus more! Check the Extras tab for all the details.

What you should know…

  • Please note that only the 17 person prices include the rental of the annexe
  • You'll want to rent a car to make the most out of the region
  • Make sure not to miss an incredible meal at one the many star restaurants in Chantilly and Ognon

This home is a part of our Great Value and Heritage Collection!

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

  • A great Family Holiday

    Posted by Francis M on 12/11/2016

    We thoroughly enjoyed our week's family holiday in Chateau de Garmeaux in August 2016. The Chateau itself exudes comfort, luxury and happiness. The garden is most pleasant with plenty of space and games for both children and adults. The private pool is a delight. The concierge who lives on site could not have been more helpful. Senlis and Chantilly are well worth a visit and Paris is an easy day-trip. All in all a great family holiday.
