Le Moulin du Hameau de Courances

Beautiful French cottage to take a deep breath

The Hameau de Courances is approximately one hour from Paris and is close to the historical town of Fontainebleau and the famous ‘painters’ village’, Barbizon.

Le Moulin de Courances


Overlooking the Japanese Garden of Château de Courances, a waterfall cascades over the wheel of the Mill.

Accommodating 3 people, the Moulin is a haven of peace, lulled all day by the sounds of water. The unusual glass walled kitchen leads down into a large sitting room. The room is perfect in winter with its stone fireplace and cozy sofa, but also in summer with its small private garden opening directly onto the magnificent Japanese Garden. This Japanese Garden is in fact reserved only for the pleasure of the eyes, as it is too fragile to walk into.  The stunning view brings immediate peace and quietude. The floor tiles, the wooden beams, and the “country chic” furniture gives a warm feel to the ambiance. A stay at the Moulin is a chance for those who visit, to appreciate what living simply but elegantly really means.

If you are a party of more than three, do not hesitate to reserve La Pompe and L’Atelier too. For more information please contact us.

“We thoroughly enjoyed our week here. Such a beautiful space – inside and out! Excellent architectural and design detail, and of course, the castle grounds speak for itself. We most definitely will return next time we’re in the area.
