Château in Burgundy

Also avaialble for: Travellers

Description

Burgundy is considered by many to be the heart of France. And this is probably true, because in few places in France do such French passions as gastronomy, confectionery and the cult of good wine converge in such a pronounced way. Nestled in the emerald countryside of Puisaye, two hours from Paris, is this Chateau whose pastel colours invite you to discover Château  life.

Nestled in a beautiful forest between agricultural plateaux, the present  Château  built in 1875 on the foundations of an old manor house owned by the Duke of Nevers. Its more than 250 hectares offer a majestic garden, among which are hidden sublime ponds, woods and meadows. A place where history, architecture and landscape blend in perfect harmony thanks to its unique perspective, creating an intimate and magical atmosphere. Its heated outdoor swimming pool and tennis court are perfect places to create unforgettable moments. From there, you can enjoy a sunset that can be glimpsed through the colourful trees.

The Burgundy region is, in a nutshell, la belle France: bucolic landscapes, unparalleled cultural heritage and a land of wines. Thirty-six of the 50 most famous wines in the world come from this region, where the vines have been cultivated and the wines produced for centuries. Wine is almost a religion here, worshipped in underground cathedrals. There is nothing like rounding off a visit to this region with visits to traditional wineries, walking through fields of vines, and a wine tasting session with a sommelier to get to know all the extraordinary nuances.

But it’s not all about wine. The fame of the French cheese dairies as well as tasting their delicious pastries are experiences not to be missed.

Throughout Burgundy it is also possible to cycle from the banks of the Yonne to the banks of the Saône, and the more adventurous cyclists can take on the asphalt of the legendary Magny-Cours circuit.

Did you know that Burgundy has a thousand kilometres of waterways? Burgundy’s canals pass through medieval villages, wooded valleys and agricultural plains. You can travel along the famous Burgundy Canal or embark on the Nivernais Canal, considered to be one of the most beautiful in the country.

The villages along the wine route have remained untouched by the passage of time and retain a special charm, where it is a pleasure to stroll through their narrow streets, contemplate their stone façades and wooden beams adorned with geraniums. Here one imagines that the days go by marked by the rhythm of the crops and the simple life.

A carefully restored palace set in a landscape that could have come straight out of a Jane Austen novel. A retreat in the heart of nature surrounded by gardens and vineyards. A journey into the past with all the comforts of modern times.
The touch of freshly cut grass, the crystal of a glass of wine, the softness of a blanket, the contact with its centenary floors… everything makes us connect with old and pleasant sensations.
Smells of nature, of its forests and fields. Nature fills us with energy. Not to mention its wine cellars, where we can also train our olfactory senses and delight in the infinite number of signature wines from this area of France, rich in aromas and flavours.

Burgundy is a region that reveals its charms when you sit down at the table: in the east of France, this region associated with its wine boasts the best (and most photogenic) gourmet routes in the country. The speciality is red meat, but also, of course, snails. This pearl of French gastronomy is one of its most delicate and subtle flavours, suitable only for demanding palates, and another local delicacy is eggs en meurette, cooked in a sauce made with wine, bacon and spices. A gastronomic paradise to be discovered.

Thanks to the slow and calm rhythm of the air, we will appreciate every sound of nature as a balm that lulls us while we enjoy the pleasure of reading, a moment of gastronomy or simply a contemplative rest. The absence of noise leads us to the pleasure of silence, which is the sound of nature itself.
