La Vigie du Château de Fleury


On the second and last floor of la Tour Nord, situated in one of the pillars forming an angle between the commons of the Château de Fleury and its ramparts, la Vigie is the place to feel like you are suspended in the heights. Overlooking both the court of Honor and the surrounding countryside, it is the perfect place to let go. To admire the breathtaking views of the countryside, the spectacular viewpoint of the court of Honor from the bull’s eye, or the peaks of the trees from the vast French windows. The atmosphere in this apartment bathed in light is soft and peaceful. Modern amenities are mixed with rougher materials such as lime and claustra wood to demarcate precisely the different spaces of the room. You will be surprised by the unusual bathroom: the bathtub is hidden behind an alcove decorated with Louis XIII moldings allowing you to relax in all intimacy. You will be immediately seduced by the peacefulness of the place and its private access to the garden from the ground floor. You no longer need to go to the end of the world to experience an exceptional weekend; thanks to Pierres d’Histoire, unusual experiences are within your reach.

Pierres d’Histoire was immediately charmed by the old annexes that are the Ecurie and the Tour Nord. After restoring Poterne in 2016, the decision was made to exploit the potential of these annexes. They were rehabilitated into three exclusive suites, welcoming guests for what could be defined as an extraordinary stay in the heart of History. The Ecurie with its orange colored stone vaults and its generous volumes is the perfect example of the exceptional architecture typical of the 17th century. The Vigie and the Tour, with their high ceilings, picturesque arrow slits and monumental fireplaces correspond entirely to Pierre d’Histoires’ vocation to perpetuate history by refurbishing these old buildings. The facades and the roofs have been on the Historical Monuments list since October 5th, 1951. The Suites de Fleury were created in 2019. Located in one of the annex wings of the Tour Nord, facing the Château, the rooms where unoccupied and undecorated. Refurbishing took one year, with the ultimate goal of undergoing a complete renovation and yet keeping the spirit of the place untouched. The spacious volumes with the five meter high ceilings as well as their specific configuration had to be taken into account so as to create pleasant habitable apartments despite the immensity of the rooms. The decorator, Camilla, bought objects and furniture, from Hungerford, a village in the South of England, renowned for its antiques. She also found antiques in the region of Fontainebleau. Of course, the rooms have lost their original vocation but Camilla and Dominique Imbert decided to recreate, especially in the Ecurie, a stall inspired from drawings found in architecture books dating back to the 18th century. They tried to preserve the style of the place, in keeping with the original drawings. At the Vigie and the Tour, stone walls that created a rather austere atmosphere have been rendered welcoming with big panels of fabric. During the troubles of the Fronde, Brie and the coast of the Marne were destructed by the Lorrains who came to the aid of the rebellious. Cardinal de Richelieu resided here, having particular feelings for Fleury and the serenity of its gardens. He also escaped a plot conspired by the Duchesse de Chevreuse. She was well known for her engagement against the politics of the influential cardinal. It is said that the cardinal then ran away on horse to Fontainebleau.
