The definition of fun can be described in numerous ways and La Verrière has many different forms of amusement for you to discover. By embracing the isolation and privacy here, alone with yourself and your loved ones, you are welcoming total control back into your world.
                        
This is why great levels of hidden detail have been woven into La Verrière’s rich tapestry of experiences. The rooms, the vineyards, the gardens and the courtyards of this historical estate have all been meticulously designed to make it burden-free for you.
                        
Be sure to leave yourself plenty of time to consider each room and its attributes. Visit the Grand Vaulted Hall; the Caveau and its rooftop; the Salle Verte with its grand piano; and the library, well-stocked with books in various languages.
