Chateau de Buno












Chateau de Buno is nestled in the lush green of the Gâtinais Nature Park, only 12 miles from Fontainebleau. It's a green oasis of tranquility, close to nature and with a wealth of rivers, marshes and forests. The castle has a rough-stone, medieval finish, plentiful shutters and a neo-Renaissance tower, but the inside could hardly present a more extreme contrast to the husk. The furnishings were daringly re-dressed in the 1950s, featuring now a skilfull mix of contemporary and antique touches. The stylish rooms and suites, as well as the welcoming reading and music salons, are luminous and exude class: a sweep of parquet topped by a vibrant Art Deco rug, a majestic Third Empire bed and a boudoir in the tower… The secret of De Buno’s spell is its «human scale», and its many centuries history wrapped in a romantic aura.
