When you drive through surrounding parkland and the gates of the Château de Grand Rullecourt and continue down the sweeping drive, you’ll feel you’re embarking on one of those grand country weekends from another age.
Your delightful and energetic hosts, Patrice and Chantal Saulieu, have devoted well over twenty years to restoring their imposing home and welcoming guests from all over the world. You only need ask and they’ll lead you on a tour through the rooms and chapel, while regaling you with story after story.
They share their home as a bed and breakfast, not as a full-service hotel. Expect breakfast to be the continental type of croissants and coffee and plan to take your meals while you’re out sightseeing.
The château’s atmosphere is one of authenticity that overflows with character. Chandeliers hang over the salons, wood floors suitably creak. Furnishings are representative of the period.
Guest rooms are more than spacious with comfy beds to welcome you at the end of the day. Basic bathrooms hold showers.
If you have any questions about how to best enjoy the area, Patrice and Chantal will be happy to help—English spoken! And you’ll be heartened to know that your stay here helps with their ongoing restoration efforts.
Charming hospitality and loads of history!
