This property stands just a few kilometres from the capital of Burgundy, reached in less than 3 hours from Paris via the A6 motorway and in just 2 hours by TGV train. It is 2½ hours from Geneva and 2 hours from Lyon by train. This chateau, set between courtyard and garden, is in a superb site in the centre of a little village with less than 200 inhabitants. The commune is but a few minutes from some of Burgundy’s great vineyards, producing wines such as Clos-Vougeot, Gevrey-Chambertin and Nuits-Saint-Georges.
The listed chateau
This U-shaped chateau was constructed around 1620 at the request of the president of Dijon’s court of the exchequer. The main building is flanked by two pavilions which were notably extended in the 19th century to form two wings. The buildings are topped with Burgundy tiles, with glazed tiles laid in a chevron pattern in places. The facades feature large, tall windows overlooking the inner courtyard and the gardens, whilst shed dormers illuminate the attics. Inside, the rooms are illuminated by through light and, on the ground floor, are adjoining. Upstairs, they are reached via a corridor. The various levels are accessed from the central vestibule, featuring rendered walls and housing a monumental dressed stone stairway. Back stairways are still to be found in the wings. Worthy of special mention are the listed painted ceilings as well as the two outstanding levels of living space which are in a very good state of repair.
The caretaker’s cottage
This traditional, long farmhouse, spanning approx. 100 m², is constructed from quarry stone blocks and topped with tiles. It notably comprises one main room, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom.
The listed chapel
Constructed in the 12th century, its nave most probably disappeared in the 19th century when the right-hand wing was added to the chateau. All that remains are the transept and the apse of the choir. A Romanesque capital set in the masonry at the entrance to the transept shows that the original blind arcade has been walled up. The current entrance was no doubt created when the nave was destroyed. Frescoes adorn the interior walls. The half-dome of the apse presents an enthroned Christ with the tetramorph. However, two of the latter’s figures, St Mark’s lion and Saint-John’s eagle, have disappeared. Saint Matthew’s angel and Saint Luke’s bull remain. This representation dates from the 13th century. Consecration crosses and a funeral stripe bearing the christogram are still visible as are two birds facing one another.
The wings, added to the chateau in the 19th century, in no way changed the character of a residence that was already two hundred years old. The precious remains of the listed chapel, with their Byzantine style artwork, are even older. The regularity of the property’s overall appearance is both stately and restful. Inside, the grey hues of the sumptuous ceilings compete in interest and elegance with the wall frescoes. The roof of the main building is in a very good state of repair: the repairs required by those of the corner pavilions and certain facades will not deter shrewd new residents any more than the minor works needed in some of the rooms. Just a few minutes from the former home of the Dukes of Burgundy, this residence is still perfectly in keeping with its castle status.
