Domaine de Courances


Patrimoine culturel

Less than an hour from Paris, discover the most beautiful example of Renaissance water garden preserved today.

In the heart of Gâtinais, the Domaine de Courances extends over 75 hectares, surrounded by water, trees and sky.

Everything is to be discovered, through the seasons: the château, the Gardens,

Let these places of charm and history inspre you. Walk through a park that is both romantic and classic, meet bicentennial trees, walk on the lawns and catch your breath for an afternoon.

To have a gourmet tea, while admiring the japanese garden, or taking the cool at the edge of the Sous-bois, sit in the Foulerie, where hemp was trampled during the 17th century.

The château also opens its doors. It is a private house, still inhabited, but you can discover it through a guided tour..

Nature and its seasons invite themselves on your plate to awaken the taste buds and offer new experiences.

At the heart of the Parc de Courances, the Vivier du Bien-être is a space dedicated to care and health. Located opposite the Japanese Garden, the building houses a naturopathy and osteopathy consultation area, a massage area and an infrared sauna cabin. Yoga and meditation classes are also offered.

A field of honor was inaugurated in 2016, with the support of the French Polo Federation, making Courances an ideal place for practices and internships.
