Mercure-VMF 2019 award : Château de Beaucamps-le-Jeune

For the past fifteen years, the owners have faced very strong winds, rain, storms and snow to save and bring back to life this enchanting residence thanks to their efforts and savings. The owner, who passed away suddenly in August 2018, carried out many of the works himself: it’s now his wife who is directing the latest restorations to pass on their love of heritage and promote French savoir-faire.

Open to the public, the Château de Beaucamps-le-Jeune organizes equestrian and musical shows, the 11th of which will take place this summer.

The Mercure-VMF 2019 award presented by Mercure Forbes Global Properties will be used to restore the roofing, framework and masonry of the north-east wing, as well as the banister of the horseshoe-shaped main staircase of the main building.


The Prix VMF (Vieilles Maisons Françaises) is a distinction awarded by the Vieilles Maisons Françaises association, an organization dedicated to safeguarding and promoting France’s architectural and landscape heritage. Founded in 1958, the VMF association plays an active role in raising public awareness of the need to preserve France’s built and landscaped heritage.
