The history of Chanteloup
The history of Chanteloup goes back to 1400 even if the two main buildings date respectively from 1815 regarding the Castle, and 15th and 19th centuries for the “Orangery” (the building close to the pond).
As far as the Castle is concerned, it was built in 1850 by the Viscountess Ogier d’Ivry who had two sons but only one castle. She thus built Chanteloup for her second son. The manor house is from a Classic Style, Louis the XVI’s time. The mansion remains pleasant to live and particularly during the family celebrations.
The Souffront family acquired Chanteloup in 1960 with its park of 20 hectares as a second home, and started the campsite business in 1974. Before this activity, the outbuildings were used as a farm with cows, pigs, pheasants and chickens. The 5 lodgings fitted out in the Old Orangerie and the farm buildings have been progessivley constructed between 1995 and 2004. Throughout the year, three persons are working full-time to maintain the park and the buildingds.
Dominique Souffront, the manager of the family business-, the family members and all the staff will be happy to welcome you and will do their utmost to make your stay a most enjoyable one.
