Contemporary six-room design hotel within a charming ivy-clad chateau in the heart of Burgundy's wine region
Surrounded by 14 acres of lush gardens and orchards, this typically French chateau dates to the 17th century and sits atop a hill in the Burgundy wine region. The charming ivy-clad exterior belies uber modern interiors designed by owners Johan Bouman and Pieter Franssens, Dutch natives who traveled to the area on business and ended up falling in the love with the property. The two rooms and four suites are either traditionally styled in keeping with the history of the building (lichen walls, fireplaces, antique mirrors and trinkets) or with more of a nod to loft-style living with soaring ceilings and contemporary artwork. Breakfast is served in the dining room, the chateau's former summer salon, which is strewn with striking pieces of art (dine by the pool in the summer months) and the restaurant is open for dinner on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. Kick back with a good book by the secluded pool, relax in the sauna or steam room or work out in the petite gym. If the weather turns sour, sip a glass of the chateau's own Chablis by the crackling fire.
In the Area
There are plenty of wine tasting opportunities in the area including the Domaine Alain Geoffroy, a family estate established in 1850, and the Tixier Vineyard, a small family business with a vineyard that covers 17 acres. Local chateaus include Ancy-Le-Franc, home to the biggest collection of Renaissance murals in France and the 11th-century Chateau Ratilly which hosts regular contemporary art exhibitions. For a shopping fix, hit Auxerre's Old Town to browse the boutiques that line the cobblestone streets or rummage for bargains at the designer outlet mall in Troyes. The chateau is around a two-hour drive from Paris.
