The Space

Enjoy our prestigious 12 bedroom chateau estate. Ideal for family reunions, business seminars, weddings or simply a weekend among friends where you can fish, play pool, ride our mountain bikes, relax in the Jacuzzi or by the huge hunt room fireplace.

Searching for a unique destination for a special week-end or vacation for up to 24 people?

At Chateau de Miserai you are renting a lot more than a house, you are renting a lot more than a Chateau, you are renting an entire estate. You will not be greeted by the châtelain, YOU will become the châtelain. Treat yourself to a true "vie de chateau" in this lovely early XVIIIth century domain located in the heart of the Perche region of Normandy in the middle of a 350 acre property with ponds, rivers, waterfalls, century old trees and an old watermill. A barn equipped with a bar, a spa-solarium with hot tub and endless pool completes this exceptional setting.

There are 8 bedrooms in the Chateau plus 4 in the guesthouse with comfortable double beds for up to 24 people total. The guesthouse has a living room and kitchen.
You can enjoy the whole property for yourself, and even plan events (on specific demand).
You can also fish (catch & release) on the property ponds and rivers.
The Chateau is a short 90 minute drive from Paris and 2 km from the N12 motorway.

Many activities are offered on the estate:

The spa room with an endless pool, six-seat Jacuzzi and barbecue. The water is heated year round to 104 degrees in the spa and from May to September to 79 degrees in the pool. (Pool is closed from October through April).

The hunt room with a 9-foot pool table.
The bar in the hunt room
Fish the ponds and rivers of the domain
Take photos of the wild animals in the park

Rentals are either for a weekend, a week or a month. Minimum weekday rental is 4 days

Rooms are not rented individually, must rent the whole property.

ADDITIONNAL CHARGES: A Central heating charge of 75€ per day for the Chateau and 35€ for the guesthouse will be added to your bill if you need to turn it on. (You will most likely need it from October to April).
A cleaning fee of 25 Euros per occupied bedroom per stay will be added to the bill.
Access to the spa room is 10 Euros per person per stay.
You must pay these charges on arrival.

  • Nous avons passés un très bon séjour. Nous étions 5 couples avec enfants. Toute la literie du château est très bonne. L'endroit est exactement comme indiqué sur le site. De superbes ballades à faire en vélo VTT ou à pied aux alentours.

  • We stayed at les Miserai with a group of 21 people last weekend. We stayed in both the main castle and its annex. We had a fantastic weekend. The castle is well equipped, clean and located in a lovely area. There is a Carrefour 10 minutes away (by car) from the castle, which is very convenient. The annex is nice too and our friends who stayed there had a comfortable time. We also used the barn in the evening after dinner. Great location to chill in front of the chimney, while listening to some music. Dominique, was always quick to respond to our requests and messages, which was really appreciated. More importantly, Christian (Dominique’s brother) was such a wonderful host. He helped us plan some activities on the Saturday, by providing us with useful information so that some of us could horse ride. We also did some cycling and walked in the countryside. Every year we organise a weekend like this one, but we have to say that this year was the best by far and this is, in part, due to the location we chose and the way Christian welcomed us. The history of the castle is interesting too for those who like a bit of history. We would not hesitate to come back again. Thanks again Christian and Dominique. Liliane and Thomas

  • J'ai eu l'occasion de séjourner au Chateau de Miserai durant un week-end avec un quinzaine de mes amis.
    Cette propriété est absolument parfaite pour un séjour en groupe.
    Le propriétaire est un homme charmant, très accommodant et qui prendra le temps de vous conter quelques belles histoires sur le chateau et la region.
    Je recommande vivement cet endroit et espère avoir à nouveau l'occasion d'y séjourner.

    I had the chance to stay at the Castel of Miserai for a week-end with some friends.
    We had an amazing time. The property and its amenities are perfect.
    The landlord is a very nice person, very accommodating and he will make sure you have great stay.
    I strongly recommend this place and I do hope I'll have the chance to stay there again.

  • I live in Paris and myself and a bunch of friends rented the Chateau for 8 nights. We had an amazing time! The property is beautiful and so is the Chateau. The Salle de Chasse is incredible! We enjoyed our stay very much. Monsieur Levesque is so nice and helpful and he was very quick to respond to issues we had. The bicycles were in good condition and we enjoyed riding around the countryside. There was plenty of wood to make fires (the barn is not heated. You must build a fire). The beds are INCREDIBLY comfortable. The BBQ is large and very nice, easy to cook for large groups on.

    A few notes for future renters: The guest house is not private or secure. There is a man that lives in the other half and his part is connected by doors in the bedroom that do not lock. He told us that he walks through the guest house to get in our out of his apartment. Because of this, we decided not to use the guest house. There is no privacy and your belongings would not be secure. Also, "full access" isn't quite correct. The main room in the Barn we were only allowed to walk through. We could not access the bar, the mezzanine art gallery, or the sound system/projector which are there. The pool was also closed, despite it being indoors and heated. I hope in the future with more constant bookings, they will keep it open year round. Also, the bathroom in the barn was locked so we had to walk all the way to the house each time. This was a big inconvenience, but we managed.

    In conclusion, our stay at the Chateau was still excellent. We recommend this to everyone. Our group will be back again soon, hopefully! I hope you enjoy your stay at Miserai as much as we did! :)

    Response from Dominique:

    Guesthouse bedrooms were recently added to the rental. We have since installed locks on the doors in order to have a totally private setting in the guesthouse. The barn sound system is reserved for receptions. It can only be operated (email hidden), it is located behind a locked gate and is not mentioned in the Airbnb description. We have another sound system in the hunt room available to tenants. The bar in the barn is reserved for receptions as well, tenants have access to the hunt room bar. The pool is not heated and indeed closed at this time of year however the Jacuzzi is open as clearly indicated in the listing. Barn bathrooms were temporarily closed for repairs, we apologize to Matt for the inconvenience. We do provide full access to the property however the domain is often used for weddings and receptions of up to 300 people. Equipment used for this type of venue is not available to Airbnb guests.

I live in Massachusetts and own a business there. I travel to the Normandy and Florida properties only a few times a year and wish to offset maintenance costs by offering them on the short term rental market.
