This chateau stands on the outskirts of a Yonne village, delimited by the famous Burgundy Canal and by the river Armançon, where the borders of the French departments of Yonne and Aube meet. All shops, primary and secondary schools as well as amenities are some ten minutes away. Auxerre is 30 minutes away. Paris is a little more than 2 hours away by car via the A5 or the A6 motorways. Train stations are respectively about 12 and 25 km away.
This chateau, constructed in the 18th century, has undergone many changes over the years.
A private residence, it was transformed during the Second World War into a command post, before being abandoned and partially dismantled. Transformed into a holiday home, it then became a private retirement home.
The current owners, having fallen under its charm and that of the surrounding area, undertook its renovation such that a wide public could take advantage of it by creating four holiday accommodation rental units and a family home as well as a function room. With endless patience, they gradually restored its splendour of yesteryear.
This superb building is slightly raised courtesy of its basement. It comprises 4 levels, the basement which once housed the old kitchens, the ground and first floors as well as an attic level.
Rectangular in shape, it is flanked by two short wings. The slate roofs have roof dormers with moulded architraves, topped with triangular pediments.
The rendered facades feature numerous tall, semi-circular arched windows, with dressed stone and brick framing. The openings are protected by baluster railings.
The slightly prominent central bay on the main facade is topped with a triangular pediment featuring an oculus.
The terrace, providing access to the front door and reached via a horseshoe-shaped stairway, also features balusters. Although governed by symmetry, the architectural and decorative composition of the building is not austere. The rear facade has a much more prominent central bay, topped with a curved pediment.
This chateau is modest without being dismal. It is well-proportioned on either side of the prominent central bays on each side of the building. The stone and brick framing set out around the openings enhances the facades, just like the two discreet wings. The current owners took great care to preserve the interior decor during recent restoration works and it is much appreciated by the guests accommodated here in the five self-contained, sober, spacious and comfortable dwellings. The region has many attractions which justify spending a few days in this chateau. Chablis and Irancy vineyards as well as first-class regional restaurants are nearby. A rural multi-use path, leading to Dijon, begins right next to the chateau. It is also an ideal place for organising functions and seminars. New owners will find themselves with an outstanding work tool.
