Château de Lucy - The Gite in Aisne, a cottage in Picardy: Château de Lucy - The Gite exterior

Wing of historic 18th Century Château set in 9 acres of woodland

Steeped in battlefield history, Château de Lucy now sits in tranquillity on the banks of the River L'Oise, an easy 2 hour drive from Calais, Dunkirk or Zeebrugge, accessed via St Quentin at Junction 10 from the A26 from Calais.

Occupied by Crown Prince Wilhelm of Germany and Prussia during the First World War and German Officers during the Second World War, the Château has lived through turbulent times (we have a pill box (machine gun fortification) about 20 yards from our kitchen door which was built to protect the Château in the Second World War).

Now, while we live in the newer part of the Château, the gite which makes up the majority of the old original Château dating from the 1700s, is an ideal place to come to explore and sample a true taste of France, easy enough to get to, but far enough into France to be truly French.

Arranged over 3 floors, the gite has a large entrance hall with oak staircase, laundry, large bathroom with roll top bath and walk in shower, a double bedroom, a single bedroom, a double bedroom in the tower and open plan kitchen/sitting room. Beautiful light rooms overlooking the Château grounds and river.

The gite has access to a private terrace of some 60sqm for eating breakfast outside, sunbathing or for a barbecue and sitting out with a glass of wine in the evenings.

Table and chairs, sun loungers barbecue are included for your use. Although the private terrace is exclusively for your use, you are very welcome to enjoy any part of the nine acres that Château de Lucy sits in or use the above ground splash pool.

Passionate about our beautiful environment, we use biodegradable cleaning products and organic welcome packs where possible.

The river LOise which runs around the edge of the property is ideal for trout fishing and carp lakes are between 2 and 5 miles away or if fishing doesn’t appeal to you, you can always wander along the river bank towards the Mill at Lucy.

Ribemont, a small market town rich in history, is a 10 minute walk or 2 minute drive from the château, having a small museum, large supermarket and petrol station, artisan boulangerie, restaurant, pizza parlour, pharmacy and tabac.

Just outside the grounds of the chateau runs the small tourist train, taking in the scenery of the LOise valley.From time to time, the dining car, reminiscent of the Orient Express steams along the tracks, offering luxury dining of a bygone age.

The City of St Quentin, 15kms from Lucy, is best known for the Basilique and is a bustling City full of artisan and designer shops, street cafes and beautiful Gothic architecture. A large market is held on Wednesday and Saturday mornings.

Parc Asterix and Disneyland, Château de Pierrefonds (from the TV series Merlin) and dozens of other attractions are also within an hour or so to drive, paintball, golf, tennis are all within 5kms. You can also discover the river L'Oise by kayak with a half or full day river tour from St Quentin.
