A listed, 17th century chateau, with its listed, 12th century chapel, just a few minutes from Dijon in the French department of Côte-d'Or.
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 Burgundys great vineyards, producing wines such as Clos-Vougeot, Gevrey-Chambertin and Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Constructed on a sloped motte in the 17th century, this chateau is in the middle of a village and a property spanning approx. 5 ha. It is enclosed by natural hedges with fencing and by stone walls. Large entrance gates open on to a gravel driveway which goes up in the direction of the main building. The eye-catching, 12th century chapel borders the right-hand side of the central driveway. The U-shaped chateau has one facade facing the courtyard and another overlooking the gardens. To the rear is a swimming pool, protectively surrounded by vegetation. A caretakers cottage, standing on the edge of the property but still within the castle boundaries, has its own garden. Completely separate from the rest of the property, it is concealed from the chateau by vegetation. The gardens follow the natural lie of the land, providing a superb view from the chateaus terrace. They form a vast meadow as well as wooded parklands.
The listed chateauThis U-shaped chateau was constructed around 1620 at the request of the president of Dijons 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.
This level comprises, amongst others, all the reception rooms, a dining room, a lounge and a library. It also includes a spacious kitchen which still has its terracotta floor tiles and a monumental fireplace. Its walls have been fully renovated. The dining room features red and black hexagonal terracotta floor tiles. Its ornamental fireplace has jambs moulded with acanthus leaves, a mantel forming a retable and a trumeau, all made of dressed stone. Contrary to those in the previous rooms, the floors in the lounge and the library are covered with oak wood parquet flooring. All these rooms are very stately with highly decorative fireplaces, ceilings painted with acanthus leaves, tracery, ova and other motifs. Oak wood wainscoting is also affixed to the walls. The central entrance hall has wide Burgundy flagstones. The arrangement of the stairs on the impressive stairway is outstanding as an individual piece of dressed s
