L'Atelier du Hameau de Courances

Peaceful French family cottage less than 1 hour from Paris

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.

L’Atelier de Courances


The water from the Moulin operated the old sawmill until World War II, then the Atelier was used as a storage room by the gardeners, the lock keepers and the fishermen of the estate for their materials.

Transformed into a beautiful house for four, l’Atelier is the biggest of the three houses in the hamlet. Just like La Pompe and Le Moulin, the interior decoration, the wooden beams, the floor tiles and the overall peaceful ambiance is what makes it a traditional country house. The large living room and its open kitchen invite you to get together and share a rare moment. In winter, sit comfortably by the fireside; in summer make the most of the deck-chairs in the private garden. A restful night of sleep, and then what an incredible pleasure to wake up and see the Japanese Garden! Be tempted by a walk, alone, in the park of the castle or by a bike ride on the paths of the nearby forest; everything here is synonymous to beauty and peacefulness.

If you are a party of more than four, do not hesitate to reserve La Pompe and Le Moulin too. For more information please contact us.

Happy Guests!
