This is not a hotel you will just stumble across on your travels, you have to be ‘in the know’. Behind the ornate iron gates lies the 16thC building, surrounded by immaculately kept grounds with a little stream running through.

Dinner is served in the vaulted dining room or, if the weather is fine, dine al fresco on the terrace. Much of the produce comes from the château’s own veggie garden. There is a stunning indoor pool which fades into different colours with gentle background music to lull you.

During the day visit the Basilica at Vézelay, go wine tasting at Chablis, and take in Fontenay Abbey. The château has a tennis court and bikes are available to help keep in trim.

With 15 rooms, the château is open from mid April to early November. BOOK ONLINE
