A real haven of verdant tranquillity only 30 minutes south of Paris in the Regional Natural Park of the Haute Vallée de Chevreuse, the Château de Saint-Jean de Beauregard is a choice destination for garden lovers from all over the world. Remarkably preserved, this is retaining all the charm and elegance of its classical 17th century environment. In a setting of earth and wood, the seven courtyards, park and French garden boast a variety of treasures, including a chapel, outbuildings, a vegetable garden, a dovecote, an orangery, a water hole, an ice house, and a moat… everything we needed for life in the 17th century. This property may be a Historic Monument, but at heart it is still a living, breathing family home, whose current owners are dedicated to keeping it alive and sharing with the public. Their passion for plants and gardens is on display in the exemplary restoration of the kitchen garden and the launch of one of the first ever Plant Fairs in 1984. Over the years, this has become one of the most famous horticultural events in France.
A real «transparent» castle, this château opens directly onto the surrounding countryside and boasts a truly exceptional panoramic view, earning it the title of «Beauregard». Inhabited all year round, it is fully furnished and houses a number of portraits and family heirlooms. From the summer room to the library and from the green room to the dining room, the remarkably well-preserved interior decoration is the perfect illustration of an exquisitely refined and delicate way of life.
