The Château d'Hérouville is a French château of the 18th century (1740) located in the village of Hérouville, in the Oise valley near Paris. The castle was built in 1740 by Gaudot, an architect of the school of Rome. In the 19th century, it was used as courier relay station (between Versailles and Beauvais) and stabled a hundred horses. The composer Michel Magne purchased it in 1962 and converted it into a residential recording studio after a fire devastated the left wing of the building in 1969. The musician, director and sound engineer Laurent Thibault took over management of the studio in June 1974. Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, Jethro Tull, Cat Stevens, Iggy Pop, David Bowie, Bee Gees, T.Rex, Joan Armatrading and Pink Floyd have all recorded here. The studio closed on July 25, 1985
