There are about 60 islands on the River Seine in "Ile-de-France", which literally means the Island of France and is the area around Paris. Some are inhabited, some not. The island of Chantemesle is a small paradise of approximately 25 acres and contains two charming villas built in the local style. The Impressionists were attracted by the landscape and the quality of the light. Claude Monet lived in nearby Vétheuil and completed several important paintings there - of the banks of the Seine as well as the water lilies in his garden at Giverny, a few miles away. Other marvels around Chantemesle are the troglodyte settlements of Haute-Isle, the 12th century church of Vétheuil or the chateau at La Roche-Guyon, which has been classified as one of the 20 most beautiful villages of France.
(depending on season and number of travellers):
from EUR 5,500 to EUR 8,500 per week for up to 12 people. (For a large group of this size, a similar hotel in Paris would be much more expensive and not as elegant or romantic!)
All prices plus local tax.
