La Poterne du Château de Fleury

Unusual place to live "la vie de Château"

This old guard tower, dating from the 17th century, has been transformed today, into a rather surprising “perched house”. Access is through a small hidden stairway under the porch.

La Poterne de Fleury, an amazing way to feel the History of France …


The Poterne is situated on three levels and offers an opportunity for a truly unique stay. The main room astutely groups together a comfortable living room, a dining room table and a very beautiful kitchen. The huge windows and its oculus have a full view of the château. The very soft tones and the country furniture dating from the start of 18th century gives the rooms a refined cozy atmosphere. Each floor has a double room, sophisticated and cozy, and a private retro boudoir decorated bathroom with an authentic cast iron bathtub.

La Poterne is a place of wellbeing, where to get a glimpse of the History of France all you need do, is to contemplate the architectural splendors of the château. A beautiful garden is reserved for the exclusive use of the hosts of Pierres d’Histoire.

“A lovely place to stay with kids to enjoy nature and the wonderful forest of Fontainebleau . Gorgeous little house with lovely details. We loved it. We’ll come back for sure. The H family.”

Peter and Lesley

“Wow, this was the most amazing experience! The apartment we stayed in was absolutely gorgeous, the surrounds and the history of the Château absolutely breathtaking. The accommodation is seriously five star, and incredible value at the price. We had the “dinner to the door” service one night and it was simply delicious. Dinner in our own Château, totally romantic! We just wished we’d booked for longer.”

Sandi, Grant and Willow
