Domaine de Courson

Domaine de Courson - 91680 Courson-Monteloup

91 - Essonne


Located less than 35 km away from Paris, the Domaine de Courson, with its 17th century Château listed as historic monument and its romantic garden that boasts the Remarkable Garden label, welcomes both individual visitors and companies
Until 2014, the estate was home to the Journées des Plantes. To this widely praised event, it owes both its international reputation and its unique expertise in the organization of corporate events.
Today, families are invited to discover the “Hippolyte Trail”, a fun trail for children aged between 7 and 12 that encourages the discovery of nature.
Thanks to its 40-hectares gardens, its exceptional architectural richness (which includes a château, a chapel, stables, a water tower and glass-houses), its technical equipment and large parking facilities, the Domaine de Courson is the ideal place for both corporate and private functions.
