Really nice visit

This was a great visit. There is a tour for some of the inside rooms, which are pretty extensive and authentic. The outside grounds are beautiful to walk around.

We have visited Chateau de Cormatin on 29 September. It was an impressive but intimate water castle that stood in a beautiful park. Fireplaces, ceilings, tapestries and copper utensils were very interesting. The water moat and the magnificent gardens were also impressive as it added to the lifetime of "Three Musketeers" As the castle situated between Tournus and Cluny, the... More

The kitchen area of the Chateau. Plenty of copper utensils hanging from walls and ceiling. Nice fire in the wood burning fireplace used for cooking.

Park is a great examples of the sculptured ones and lovingly cared for. The chateau itself if probably average in a number of properties, but what is critical and relatively rare is that the interiors are in tact. French revolutions did not leave a lot of such places after them. Also they have guided tours performed by History students, which... More

Perhaps some reviewers who have seen many chateaux are a bit spoiled. While Cormatin is pretty and has a nice garden, it cannot compare with its larger icons. I am sorry, but in comparison to its competition, it is average.

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
