From their Website: Welcome to the most idyllic Bed and Breakfast – or Chambres d’hotes, as we call it here, in the Dordogne: Chateau Lalinde. The experienced traveller can become jaded with superlatives used to attract visitors. Chateau Lalinde needs none. Situated on the Dordogne River, it is the perfect place for whatever event or activity holiday you are planning - or just for total relaxation in a stunning setting. The chateau gives you a perfect base for:
- a golfing holiday
- canoeing on the Dordogne
- to explore the area's history and pre-history
- to enjoy wine tasting
- sample some of the best food in France
- as a venue for a small conference, seminar or speciality courses
- a family reunion
- a wedding party
- an incentive get-away for employees
- a board of directors’ meeting or retreat
- team building workshops
Avoiding the museum-like clichés of many other historic chateaux and dwellings, Chateau Lalinde is a beautiful private home --- and one you can make ‘yours’ for the dream chateau home-stay in a wonderful location.
There is a legend in the Dordogne that goes like this:
When the Creator had made the earth and the mountains and the rivers and the plants and animals and the First Man and First Woman, he was pleased with his work. And like any creator of beautiful things, he wanted to add the last touch to make it perfect. So he sent an angel to the earth with a big bag of precious stones and instructed him to scatter the gem stones all over the earth. Wherever the stones fell, a beautiful chateau would appear and serve as homes for Man and Woman.
The angel started over Russia, scattering a handful of the precious stones here and there. He then flew over Eastern Europe, again scattering a handful here and there. When he flew over Germany and Austria, he felt a little more generous -- as the bag was also starting to feel heavy and the sun was setting in the west. Next he flew over France, and, getting a little tired, he stumbled over a sun ray, spilling half his bag of gem stones over the Loire valley.
Now only the most precious stones were left. And that was when he flew over the lovely Dordogne River. He thought it so beautiful and worthy of the very best, that he decided to empty the entire bag of precious stones along the length of the Dordogne Valley.
And the most beautiful little gem landed on the edge of the water in Lalinde….

and is an authentic jewel of Renaissance architecture. This former dwelling of
the La Rochefoucauld family is a romantic place to stay, less than one hour
from Paris, between Versailles
An irresistible fairy tale château - Imagine large expanses of
totally tranquil woodland surrounding a château with a moat, stone bridges,
turrets and facades enlivened with niches, lacy balconies and sculptures: a
real jewel slumbering since the death in 1968 of its last inhabitant and owner,
Edouard de La Rochefoucauld. René
Traversac, the founder of the "Grandes Etapes Françaises" (which had
6 establishments at the time), immediately "took a shine" to this
château and its 60 hectares of listed parkland just 45 minutes from Paris. This was an
opportunity for which he had been waiting for years! So on 21 July 1981, he purchased the Château
d'Esclimont from the granddaughter of Edouard de La Rochefoucauld, the Comtesse
Laure-Suzanne-Marie-Maingard de Mailly et de Nesle d'Orange. He was also lucky enough to acquire part of
the paintings, chandeliers, trinkets and furniture that adorned the château at
the same time.

C9. Hotel Le Relais Saint-Michel
Route Du Mont Saint Michel BP 31
50170 Le Mont-Saint-Michel
From their Website: I have included this hotel, NOT because it
is a Chateau, because it isn’t. The
location however of Hotel Le Relais Saint-Michel to Mont-Saint Michel is
second to none. Typically you might only
want to spend a half-day on the Mont, but some like to really dive in to the
entire experience from walking on the sand while the tide is out, to watching
the tide come in at the end of the day.
The experience is truly awesome and thought by including a hotel so
close to the action, some might just prefer this location.
-Panoramic ***hotel across from Mont Saint-Michel, set in a
landscaped park and flower gardens
-32 rooms and 7 suites - spacious, airy, decorated with
-A panoramic view of the sea, the bay, the shoreline, the
polders and the salt-flats. Complete quiet, private terrace, mini-bar,
satellite TV with French and foreign channels, direct-line phone, secure
parking, free Wi-Fi and safe in your room.
From your room and private terrace, anywhere you look, your gaze will

Mont Saint-Michel, 8th wonder of the world.

At the heart of a peaceful village, Located in Seine et Marne, set in the greenery alongside the Ourcq canal, in
the countryside, rediscover the unique atmosphere from an old time refuge,
associated with hotel service that will satisfy the strictest requirements!
A bit of history - If someone were to tell me the tale of
Gressy-en-France… it would be the story of a village from old France. Once
upon a time there was a place where people had lived since the dawn of history
... whose name comes from the Latin "Gratiacum" - place of grace,
meaning an enjoyable area. Who could doubt that, walking around this village
enshrined in its green jewel box, with its streams and waterfalls, its birds
and flowers? In 1180 Raúl de Gressy, the minor lord of this blessed area, founded
the church dedicated to St. Denis, his daughter Eustachie continued his work.
The church includes two very beautiful tombstones from the
start of the 13th century; classified: these are of the founders. It was in the
middle of the great century of Louis IV that the Frémont family appeared,
originating in Normandy.
They acquired the fiefdoms of Gressy-en-France and Moulignon (the mill) on the
Beuvronne. This was done by Robert de Frémont and his brother Nicolas, the
minister of Colbert. In his memoirs, the Duke of Saint Simon (in the family
since his mother-in-law was none other than Geneviève de Frémont, a woman of
great beauty, the wife of Guy de Durfort, the Duke of Lorges and Marshal of
France), says of Nicolas that he was considered to be "the richest man in
France". Robert, who found the castle that was located just next to the
fortified farm (the current site of Manoir de Gressy ) very uncomfortable ,
constructed a large bourgeois home "Clairefontaine" to house his wife
and six children.
He designed a park with many trees and in it dug canals
following a proposal by Le Notre. Their coat of arms: "Azure with three
Gold Leopard heads, placed two and one". The following landholders in the
fiefdom of Gressy (Les Pons Saint Maurice) would be close friends with
"Carmontelle" this worldly artist who had astonished the court of the
Duke of Orleans and who "sketched" the characters so perfectly with
his pen not only in his proverbs (and type of comedy) , and transparent dramas
(sort of Chinese shadow theater) but also in his portraits. He also liked to
draw gardens and parks. He stayed in Gressy-en-France many times both at
Clairfontaine and at Comte de Pons. At the same time, Pierre Joseph Macquer and
his brother came to stay in Calirefontaine. He accumulated responsibilities and
also became the "royal censor", meaning that he was in charge of
examining the interest and merit of scientific discoveries proposed to the
King. He worked much with Lavoisier and together they perfected the burning
glass, the first solar oven. A chemist at the Sevres plant, king Louis XV
charged him with determining the composition of hard porcelain, the secret of
which was jealously capped by the Chinese. He succeeded in this task in 1769.
It was also at Gressy that he experimented with the art of dying silk, and thus
reddening the waters of the Beuvronne many times (he was accused of this
section by the inhabitants of Gressy!)
At Clairfontaine, he also created a small laboratory and a
botanical garden with exotic trees some of which are still present today. He
was a magnificent experimentalist and it would take too long to list all of his
discoveries. It should also be noted that one of his books he wrote- the Guide
du Naturaliste (the Naturalist's Guide), with a preface by Buffon who was a
friend of his - was to amuse the reader all while educating him. Also at that
time there were three mills: The Moulignon mill, the Rouge mill, and a windmill
located on the plain, all were very active... which is not surprising for this
plain in France
whose fertility is well-known. After the revolutionary tumult (the destruction
was widespread, including the castle... which was partially rebuilt into the
current Townhall) calm returned to
the small village
of Gressy which went to
sleep for a while.
