About the Holiday Home

The swimming pool
The swimming pool

La Chartreuse de Marcousin was founded in the 13th Century, but the main building is an entirely refurbished 17th century Chartreusestyle mansion, which has been granted the "Bâtiments de France" label - a distinction reserved for the finest buildings in the country. Eight guests can sleep in one house and four in the other, with room for a party of up to 12 renting both houses together.

La Chartreuse de Marcousin is located on a hill in a peaceful and picturesque 20 hectares (50 acres) estate with a 13 x 5m swimming pool. With no automobile traffic around, the only sound to be heard is birds singing.
