While we were holidaying in Burgundy, we spent a whole afternoon at Chateau de Cormatin. An impressive, restored, building set in beautiful grounds. It was very easy to spend a good few hours here! We took the tour - it's organised in small groups and you go room by room, with the door closing behind you each time so you... More

Chateau de Cormatin has obviously been lovingly restored. The owner was present as we toured the Chateau and was extremely solicitous of the building and ready to answer all questions on the restoration work. It is a beautiful building architecturally. The decorated walls and ceilings in the rooms were amazing as were the fixtures and fittings. The history of the... More

Beautiful building surrounded by water where you can take great mirror photos, nice park and river area to walk accompanied with friendly geese. Cute vegetable garden: mixture of vegetables and flowers.

loved this Chateau, great tour however the guide did not once try and speak English. Had lots of laughs with the French but not once tried to interpret into English for us like other chateau's we have visited

If this Chateau would be located in the Loire valley it would probably attract hardly any visitor. It is a nice, small Castle with beautiful gardens. Michelin's Guide Verte rates it with 2 stars, but anyone who has seen for example Valencay or Chambord will probably be disappointed. There is no animation, only guided tours. Our tour guide spoke some... More

Tucked away in southern Burgundy, this very attractive chateau appeals both externally with its elegant parkland setting, and internally by the rich decoration of many of its rooms. You will have to join a guided tour to see the latter, but you will come away with a good idea of the dissolute life led by the French aristocracy before the... More

We sat in the heat for nearly 1 hour waiting for the Chateau to open after lunch. It was a very hot day too. The man at the gate on reception told an English speaking couple in front of us that there was an English speaking guide and as the majority of the visitors that day were English we were... More

Just imagine that this place was ruins only several decades ago. Some young architects. Obtained the rights to it and went to work. The outcome is dazzling. The interior shows you the grandeur of France. The outside is beautifull, so well done in period and style. For gardenlovers we can only say TAKE YOUR TIME. The small village of Cormatin... More

I cannot speak for the Chateau tour because my timing was off but the gardens alone are sooooo worth the visit. From a beautiful cutting and kitchen garden, to wide open meadows bordered by massive old trees, with formal box gardens and topiaries the main feature, I cannot recommend more highly to garden lovers. Did I mention it rained during... More

We visited the Chateau and gardens on a sunny October morning. The guide spoke a little English but spoke clearly and slowly enough for that the 3 of us with some conversational French were able to follow the tour and even ask some questions. The non-French speaker was given a comprehensive written guide in English. The Chateau and gardens have... More
