Why We Love This Hotel
- Built in the 18th century, this castle is surrounded by a moat
- The hotel overlooks Jean-Jacques Rousseau Park
- Paris is a 50-minute drive away
Located in Ermenonville, a commune in Oise, Château d'Ermenonville is an impressive castle surrounded by a moat just 50 minutes' drive from Paris.
The hotel overlooks Jean-Jacques Rousseau Park, named after the philosopher, writer and composer who spent the last six weeks of his life there. The Chaalis Abbey and La Mer de Sable theme park are a 5-minute drive away.
Guests can explore the castle gardens by bike or on horseback. Rowing boats are available also on the moat (all for an additional fee).
The restaurant La Table du Poète welcomes guests from Monday to Sunday lunch and dinner. It serves traditional French cuisine using locally-sourced ingredients. After lunch or dinner, you can unwind in the Salons Henri IV, Bugatti and Franklin for coffee or cocktails.
The rooms have a classical style and feature antique furniture. There is free Wi-Fi.
