General Description

This chateau is located in a stunning countryside location in the Morvan Hills in central Burgundy, approximately 60km from Beaune. Luxuriously furnished and recently sympathetically renovated, the accommodation offers the perfect combination of sumptuous opulent living with beautiful period features and details. The chateau also benefits from a private heated swimming pool. The chateau enjoys magnificent panoramic views of the surrounding 1000 acre estate, set in parkland said to be an early example of the design of Andre le Notre, famous for his work in Chantilly and Versailles. The property has recently been redesigned following its former use as a private residence and playground of the French aristocracy, and guests to the chateau will enjoy fine bed linen, beautiful drapery and luxuriously appointed rooms.

Reviews:

Fairy-tale spot in the hills
Posted by Anonymous Guest on 05/12/2011

For a long time we had been hearing about this chateau and its sympathetic owners. Now we have our own stories to tell about this fairy-tale spot in the hills, woods, fields, farms, wildlife and friendly locals. The atmosphere of this place, the dinners, and fine wines, we will continue to taste in our mind for a long time.

We were surprised again and again

After our arrival we were surprised again and again. The hospitality and your natural ability to make strangers feel welcome are unique. The domain is of unknown beauty. A pearl in an oyster; so real and pure.
