Legal Informations & CGU
This chateau is set in Burgundy, in the French department of Yonne, equidistant between the town of Auxerre and the village of Chablis (15 minutes). Paris is but a 1¾ hour train journey (2 nearby train stations); the A6 motorway is 10 minutes away.
This property, built in the 17th century, was in a way part of a much bigger estate uniting the region’s chateaux in 2,000 ha of forests. The owners were large families related to one another through blood or marriage. A fire after the French Revolution destroyed the majority of the chateau and spared but the outbuildings and the dovecote. A second building, with a totally different appearance, was built on the foundations of the first chateau in the 19th century. A square shape extending the wings was preferred to the round towers. The main rectangular building currently spans a floor surface area of approx. 825 m² over three levels. The facades, covered with a light-coloured rendering, exude a simple elegance. The main entrance provides a line of symmetry for the numerous, regularly spaced windows, with their stone framing. The large slate roof features sculpted stone roof dormers which illuminate the attic. The sound facade facing the parklands exudes a proud, elegant air.
The courtyard side is, however, quite different. Appearing less imposing and more refined, it leaves some space for the interesting 17th century outbuildings surrounding it.
Pride of place is taken by the vestiges of the old construction such as the small square towers, much narrower than the others, standing elegantly out from the facade.
In times gone by, the chateau was entered via this courtyard, closed by attractive wrought iron gates. Lived in by an aristocratic family until the Second World War, this chateau was then purchased by an industrialist, the children of whom sold it to the current owners.
The outbuildings are set out around the old main courtyard, previously used as the main entrance to the chateau. Set at right angles to the main building, they enclose the courtyard.
These outbuildings span a total floor surface area of approx. 300 m². They comprise a superb, rendered, rectangular house of delightful proportions. Its hip roof is covered with small Burgundy tiles. The openings are framed with the same white stone as the quoins. Following on from this house are the stables, housed in a lower, similar looking building with regional white stone framing its openings and a roof covered with small tiles. It adjoins a magnificent dovecote. Gravelled alleyways, lined with boxwood, lead to each building. Wrought iron gates close the entrance to the courtyard.
The farm and the orangery
Laid out on the other side of the alleyway, separating them from the chateau, are the farm buildings which were added in the 19th century. They comprise a large, rectangular, 2-storey building with a total floor surface area of approx. 400 m². Fully restored, they have been converted into a spa, a restaurant and two suites.
A barn, at the other end, is used as a machine room for the swimming pool, a boiler room and also houses the wood-pellet reserve. This section is enclosed by walls, providing the privacy necessary for the large swimming pool, installed in the old courtyard. A few metres away, a magnificent orangery was also constructed. The horses’ dressage ring, two sandy paddocks as well as a French bowls pitch and an old well are also to be found here.
The parklands and the orchards
This chateau and its outbuildings stand in the midst of six hectares of parklands, orchards and meadows. The orchard is on the edge of the old farm, the two hectares of meadows, on either side of the property, slope down towards the valley. The parklands, behind the chateau, are planted with trees over a hundred years old. Small boxwood and rhododendron bushes are set out around a stone ornamental pool. Little gravel pathways wind here and there, passing under tunnels formed by hornbeam trees. A rectangular lake is at the end of the parklands. The two hectares are entirely enclosed by chestnut wood trelliswork. Sculptures and works by known artists are exhibited throughout the parklands.
This elegant chateau was majestically and soberly reconstructed on older foundations in the 19th century. As a result it features highly successful combinations of a variety of styles. It is ideally suited to the contemporary interior decor which is now one of its main attractions. There is a good chance that the new owners will love it. The effective use of shapes and colours is greatly appealing. Useful facilities are beautiful and scrupulous attention has been paid to detail. The older outbuildings, also extremely dignified, have been transformed into an additional reception and function area. All the buildings pay tribute to those craftsmen who meticulously converted them and to the artists whose many works now appear to have been made especially for its rooms or its parklands. The extremely successful hotel and catering activity can easily be continued unless, of course, a strictly private use is preferred for such beautiful premises.
