A wide selection of activities
at the heart of the Estate

For a trip as a couple, as a family, or with friends, the Château de Villiers-le-Mahieu offers a wide variety of activities for recreation and relaxation, adapted to suit your tastes.


On site

Looking for somewhere to unwind?

The estate’s heated, open-air swimming pool (open from May to September) will delight parents and children alike; and after a swim, why not head off for a game of billiards, pétanque or a boat ride around the moat?

Feeling sporty?


The hotel’s fitness centre offers a wide range of equipment to relax and to stay in shape. You can perfect your golf swing and your short game on the Estate: golf practice, 6-hole pitch-and-putt course, and training bunkers (½ series golf bag available). Individual and group lessons offered.

Fans of racket sports can play tennis, table tennis, and badminton or if you prefer team sports, you can head for a game of volleyball or football. 




Looking for some culture ?

Make the most of the area’s cultural treasures, and visit the Rambouillet Forest and its Château, the Impressionism Museum at Giverny, the Claude Monet House, and, of course, the châteaux at Thoiry, Breteuil, Saint-Germain-en-Laye, and Versailles.
