Some special features
What makes the rooms on the estate so romantic and atypical?
- There is no receptionist, porter or luggage handler here. For one or two nights, this estate is exclusively yours. However, each room is equipped with bath sheets, a small basket of bath products, mineral water, etc. Also, the "fabulous team" of the chateau is at your disposal at any moment.
- 2 suites in the medieval chateau welcome your guests on the ground floor. The Suite des Ducs has been adapted for people with limited mobility.
- Vintage rooms and suites in the Renaissance and medieval parts, have all been restored in their architectural and historical context. Thus, old floor tiles, parquet floors, rare tapestries and lime cover the floors and walls. The most recent rooms, the Dovecot, Palm Grove and Oriental ones, are original creations, often with exotic destinations.
- Restored over the past two decades, the rooms are equipped with modern facilities and all are heated. Most have 2×2 meters king-size four-poster beds.
Under the starry Burgundy sky
The largest Dovecot in France: a bridal suite unique in the world which develops on 3 levels under the sign of water, stars and wonder. It overlooks the chateau de Vallery and its park, which is lit up by a thousand torches in the evening. The small path that links the medieval chateau to the Oriental Pavilion leads to the Dovecot and the Palm grove, nestled in the 12th century ramparts. Entirely rebuilt in 2006, this monument has retained its architectural origins but benefits from contemporary facilities.
Its 2,844 pigeon holes, monolithic bathtub and overhead lighting make the Dovecot one of the Chateau’s favorite rooms. Slightly rivalled by the Loft suite or the Renaissance Charlotte de Montmorency room, the Dovecot offers many advantages to its guests. This is why it is very often requested as the bridal suite for the chateau’s weddings. And for good reason...
Diameters, radius, curves...
3 levels linked by a spiral staircase of patinated metal over 8 meters high. A sober and traditional architecture with a circular shape; the monolithic stone bathtub on the ground floor echoes the structure dressed with its pigeon holes. Also, on the first floor, the bed base and mattress with a diameter of 2.30 meters are aligned with the circular hopper. Finally, a passageway serves as a mezzanine in line with the zenithal glass roof.
Astronomy and celestial arching
So, no angles here, rounds and curves reign with noble fabrics. A few frosted glass slabs engraved with doves taking flight; a subliminal message for the Vallery bride and groom! Expanded metal, stained glass, Burgundy stone, limestone and parquet floors are the backdrop for an astronomical telescope, an encyclopedic grimoire about the Milky Way... As a result, the celestial vault no longer holds any secrets for the visitors to the dovecote dedicated to the stars and the moon.
The Renaissance rooms
In the heart of the Renaissance chateau, historic rooms, 17th century wallpaper, four-poster beds in a meticulously restored setting. The herringbone parquet floors, the period floor tiles and the bathrooms have been completely renovated. Some of the rooms are double rooms and others are family suites. Arrange the distribution of your guests according to the 16 rooms and accommodations in the Renaissance chateau on its 4 levels.
Princes and sovereigns
The fireplaces in each of the rooms attest to their authenticity. It should also be noted that for safety reasons, these fireplaces have been closed off. However, the temperatures here are very pleasant; they are all centrally heated. Despite major changes in the 1990s, the Renaissance chateau has retained its history. And what a history! It is a testimony to the fact that the kings of France, Henry II, Henry IV and Louis XIII, all stayed here. Some of the rooms in the Renaissance chateau have been named after these illustrious kings. The Bourbon-Condé family branch, which lived in Vallery up to the time of the Grand Condé, should be mentioned here. The Princesses and Princes of Condé are buried under the high altar of the church of Vallery little village.
French chateau with bedrooms
King size beds, linen and hospitality products are dedicated to your comfort. A haven of peace in a historical context. Browns, greys, ochres, golds and ivories are the dominant tones in this Renaissance masterpiece. And this for one, two or more nights just for you and your guests. Time will stand still for your party alone... for a spiritual journey into the pale dawn.
This French chateau with bedrooms offers easy access via the main stone spiral staircase and a second straight wooden staircase. Thus, from the mezzanine to the attic, you can take either one and follow the signs to reach your flats. There are no rooms on the ground floor in the Renaissance part of the building; it is reserved for the wedding reception. Only one room is on the upper floor: the Salle des Tentures, which is not intended to host nightly festivities without time limits. Moreover, this large reception room is coveted for cocktails or dinner. Afterwards, dancing will take place in the Grande Galerie or the Music Room until the early hours of the morning. This way, the bedroom occupants will not have to endure any noise disturbance or joyful night-time entertainment. Especially since they will be taking part in the festivities!
The oriental rooms
The Loft Bridal Suite
Of the 28 rooms on the estate, 3 are inspired by the charms of the Orient. Among them, the Loft: a duplex of 150 m2 and its large bay window opening onto the large pool. On the other hand, more sheltered and overlooking the 12th century ramparts: Sahara and Levant, both in the typical style of Marrakech. As the millennium changed, the former stable of the chateau was transformed into the "Oriental Pavilion". The building is equipped with modern facilities and heating, ideal for winter and mid-season weddings. The living room of the Loft, with its Balinese accents, allows you to reside on the first floor of the Pavilion thanks to a fully equipped kitchen. So, on the eve of your reception, dine opposite the Renaissance chateau and the wisteria of the Rose Garden. The Loft suite takes us on a journey in the footsteps of Magellan and Vasco de Gama. Persian and Afghan carpets and kilims adorn the rustic floor tiles on these two levels. The Loft and the rooms are decorated with furniture, lanterns and trinkets from the East and sometimes even from Indonesia.
Obviously, some couples choose the Loft Bridal Suite for its location. The large bay window and the south-facing windows overlook the entire estate. It is therefore possible to supervise the arrangements for a wedding reception while enjoying the chateau’s majesty and tranquility. In addition, the swimming pool is directly accessible to the occupants of this exotic suite. Others choose it for its configuration. And rightly so, the bride and groom enjoy the Loft room, while close family or witnesses reside in the neighbouring Sahara and Levant rooms. Moreover, these three rooms welcome their guests, just above the Oriental Pavilion reception hall called "Riad". Thus, the proximity of the suite to this hall and the swimming pool offers a very practical and pleasant access. For it is here that Tajines or Couscous are served on the eve or the day after a wedding. Here, 1 hour from Paris, in a setting that inspires the route and trade of spices from antiquity to the Renaissance.
The chateau’s Palm Grove
Teak, sand and palm trees
The teak and sandalwood rooms open onto an enclosed garden with date palms and century-old olive trees. This is why the grass here is replaced by sand. In the heart of this Garden of Eden, a small hot water pool and a shelter called "Gazebo" are a natural extension of the rooms. Veiled canopies and furniture exude the scent of teak oil and incense.
4authentic and cosy rooms
Nirvana and Figuier welcome your guests with their own access and bathroom. Both are independent and each is housed in its own little pavilion. First, Figuier faces the swimming pool, hidden by its hedge and its specific access. Then, Nirvana faces the Gazebo, the heart of this lush and exotic garden of palm trees and bamboos. On the other side of this small kiosk, Samsara and Darjeeling share a sumptuous bathroom in the center of the building. Also, this equatorial garden is enclosed by the medieval ramparts on one side and the Dovecote on the other.
The Middle Ages dressed in exoticism
At the bend in the small path, a Buddha carved in tamarind roots slumbers, then the monumental bronze head of an elephant emerges from the 12th century ramparts. Further on, a stone apsara carries a jug on her shoulder. Here, in the heart of this small oasis, everything is "luxury, calm and pleasure" for your stay on the Vallery estate, its rooms and accommodation.
Exotic, unique and comfortable
The Gazebo with its massive teak wood sofa faces the small hot water pool. This bath seems to be well guarded by the colossal elephant head carved in bronze. The bathrooms here are equipped with hydromassage bathtubs. Discreet and indirect, the lighting marks out a narrow and sinuous path that crosses the sandy expanse and joins the rooms to the terrace of the Gazebo and the pool. Finally, here again and always, the rooms and bathrooms are fully heated for your off-season stays. And to contemplate this Palm Grove under the snow is another extraordinary sight!
The medieval rooms
From the Middle Ages to today
The "Vieux Château" welcomes you between the postern and a shooting tower at the beginning of the ramparts. In the 12th century, the knight Jehan de Vallery built a vast citadel that could house 5000 soldiers. From this medieval architecture remain the ramparts, the vaulted cellars, the postern and the medieval chateau. This building survived the Renaissance wing in its extension, which was built three centuries later but destroyed in the 19th century. Then, in the 20th century, transformed into a hunting lodge, this medieval chateau valiantly withstood the harsh tests of history and the rough weather. Finally, the old chateau was restored in 1993, from its roof to its underground passages! An underground gallery does exist in the grounds of Vallery, accessible from this building at the foot of one of the postern’s vaults. It is said that these underground passages led to Fontainebleau and Sens before collapsing here and there. Here again, the history of the chateau is mixed with the legends of Vallery.
4 rooms on the same level as the park will tell you about the crusades in which the then master, Jehan de Vallery, took part. Among these rooms, the large Grand Duc and Petit Duc suite is equipped and fitted out for people with reduced mobility. This suite has a recently refurbished walk-in bathroom with a monolithic square bathtub made of Burgundy stone and decorated with delicate sculpted busts. Another suite, also with two bedrooms, "Dame Blanche" and "Chouette" share a bathroom. These 4 flats are named after the birds that have inhabited this medieval area since the beginning of time. This French chateau with bedrooms, in keeping with the 24 other accommodations is heated and equipped with bath products, towels, etc. Here again, an ambitious marriage between history and travel, the Middle Ages and Indonesia, Souppes stone and Bali is proposed. On the floor, tiled floors and oriental carpets, stone and lime on the walls, Balinese canopy and subdued lighting will invite you to dream.
