Description
Near the Champagne Region and close to Paris, Chateau de la Trousse sits high on 40 idyllic gently rolling acres with formal gardens, orchard, tennis courts and swimming pool. A short drive takes you to the ancient city of Meaux with its spectacular 12th century cathedral, wonderful restaurants and cafes. A fast train leaves every 20 minutes for Paris which is only 20 minutes away (or a 45 minute drive). EuroDisney is only a 15 minute drive. Chateau de la Trousse has been converted into exclusive private apartments and studios. This studio has a modern partial kitchen with refrigerator, sink, water purification system, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, dishes, glasses and utensils. It does NOT have a stove or oven. It has a small table with 4 chairs. You will need a car to visit this property. If you are flying into CDG or Orly, we suggest you rent one there. The Chateau is located conveniently near the A4 motorway and is easy to find. Chateau de la Trousse is historically important, being one of the very few Chateaux to survive WWI and the Battle of the Marne. The Germans actually reached the entry drive to the Chateau but got no farther. In gratitude, the owners placed a cross at the foot of the drive in honor of the US soldiers who fought there. The Chateau is even rarer in that it is in private hands despite its historical significance. The original Chateau plus the Orangerie and Cour da’ Honour were built between 1630-1640 by the family of Phillipe-August Le Hardy. The estate was owned and run by the le Hardy family until around the 1780s when the main Chateau went to ruin, whilst being dismantled and the building materials sold to help the family’s financial troubles. In 1791 Charles-Guillaume Baudon de Mony bought the estate. The Baudon de Mony family built the current Chateau in 1864 and had a small church built into the west front quarter. At around the same time the front of the Cour da Honour was converted into a stable block and throughout the 19th century it was a thriving working estate. In the 20th century the estate managed to change with the times converting other buildings in the Cour from Carriage & horse drawn equipment storage to automotive vehicle storage and workshops. All the estate buildings came through both world wars undamaged. The Chateau was occupied first by the Germans and then the Americans in the 2nd world war. There are pictures of exploded tanks on the driveway and in the surrounding fields.
