While staying nearby in Vernon, we visited on a sunny afternoon and enjoyed an informative tour of the house. Built in 1740 in a Versailles inspired style, the Chateau de Bizy has been owned by royalty from Louis XV to Louis-Phillipe. There are souvenirs from the Bonapartes and memorable Gobelin tapestries.

Terrific guided tour laying out all the history of the chateau and grounds. Amazing stables and gardens and although a lot of the original internal decorations had been removed during WW2, the tour guide explained everything in such detail, the internal decorations and wall panels were delightful.

We visited here whilst in the area and was pleasantly surprised. We didn't go into the chateau itself but the gardens and stables were lovely. It is undergoing some work, much needed but well worth a visit.

This delightful Chateau in Vernon is charming and has undergone various transformations over the years. Still a private residence but listed under the heritage and upkeep made possible by the state, this is a nice example of how the wealthy used to live, from kings, dukes and barons. Occupied by the Germans during WW2 as a radio station for the submarine fleet, some things still bear the scars of that era. The gardens surrounding the chateau are pleasant enough as are the furnishings which is a mix of Napoleonic and pre revolutionary times. Well worth a visit.

lovely to see this old belle getting some much needed attention and preservation. There is not too much to see but the price is reasonable and the staff is pleasant.
