La Métairie de Courances

Ancien corps de ferme revisité au goût du jour

A deux pas du Hameau de Courances, les bâtiments de l’ancienne métairie ont été entièrement restaurées. Ici, le rez-de-chaussée se compose d'une cuisine ouverte sur vaste pièce à vivre et d'une grande cheminée qui ravira tous les frileux, dès le début de l'automne. Grâce à son importante hauteur sous plafond et ses larges baies vitrées la Métairie est la maison la plus lumineuse du parc de Courances. Devant la maison, la terrasse et le petit jardin seront très appréciables les soirs d'été.

A l'étage, deux chambres permettent d'accueillir 4 personnes. Vous êtes un peu plus nombreux ? Combinez les maisons et louez une partie du Hameau en plus. Vous pourrez profiter de la grande table de la Métairie pour vous rassembler au moment des repas.

History

Au Domaine de Courances, le parc, le château, la foulerie, ainsi que le mur d’enceinte sont classés aux Monuments Historiques. Bien que le reste des constructions du domaine n’y soient pas répertoriées, celles-ci sont en grande partie soumises aux règles régissant les Monuments Historiques en cas de lancement d’une campagne de travaux. Dans le cas de la rénovation du Hameau, l’architecte des Bâtiments de France exigea à juste titre que l’ensemble des bâtiments garde le caractère rural de sa fonction d’origine. Le chantier de restauration dura dix-huit mois et mobilisa une petite dizaine de personnes.

Manolo, le chef jardinier, connait Courances comme sa poche et devient au fur et à mesure le chef de chantier qui coordonne les artisans : un plombier, un électricien et un menuisier qui réalisa les huisseries, volets et escaliers, ainsi que quelques maçons et quatre autres personnes travaillant habituellement à l’entretien du parc de Courances. En raison de la proximité des bâtiments avec l’eau, la plus grosse difficulté du chantier consista à assainir les fondations ; il fallut les reprendre en sous œuvre pour les renforcer et les protéger des assauts de l’eau. Ce travail de gros-œuvre impliqua notamment de bouger…la Pompe. On imagine sans peine, la difficulté à déplacer un système aussi imposant. Quant à la cour pavée en très mauvais état, celle-ci fut refaite entièrement, posée à l’ancienne sur son lit de sable légèrement chaulé. Suite aux dommages survenus durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale, certaines parties de l’ensemble avaient été réparées au béton dans les années 70/80.
