Domaine de Primard
The former country home for French actress Catherine Deneuve is bought. Alexandre Lafourcade turned the private residence - surrounded by century-old trees - into a luxury five-star estate.
2018, Frédéric Biousse and Guillaume Foucher asked Alexandre Lafourcade to restore Domaine de Fontenille in Lauris in the Luberon
2019, the husband hôteliers of les Domaines de Fontenille entrust the expert of traditional restoration with a second new challenge situated one hour from Paris.
A 18th century Directoire-era manor house like a boat on a promontory on the banks of the Eure river.
Alexandre Lafourcade is committed to preserving heritage, giving it new life, preserving authenticity, bringing modernity. The former orchard house is entirely redesigned to be the home of two on-site restaurants overseen by the French chef Eric Frechon.
Alexandre Lafourcade built the spa on the site of the estate's former woodshed. The spa is treated in an old barn spirit but at the same time contemporary and is matching with the traditional farmhouse which has been rebuilt, enlarged and modernized.
Near the vegetable garden, a banquet hall has been built from scratch to be the place of the most beautiful parties in the countryside.
The building site carried out by Alexandre Lafourcade at Domaine de Primard lasted 2 years. He worked with the Béryl le Lasseur who decorated each rooms with great care
Today, the Domaine de Primard which belongs to the group Relais & Châteaux is an impressive estate, magical and a green benefic retreat.
