Crowning a hill in the renowned winemaking region of Burgundy, Château de la Resle has the charm and personality of a well-loved private home. The six elegant rooms and suites are taken care of by Dutchmen Johan Bouman and Pieter Franssens, who invite guests to share the French, ivy-wrapped manor house they painstakingly restored. Adding to the feeling of romance and exclusivity is Johan and Pieter’s personal collection of contemporary art and design, which attracts fellow connoisseurs from around the world.From the château, which sits on the edge of an 800-hectare hunting forest, there are bucolic views down the valley of Montigny la Resle. The wine village of Chablis – that gives its name to one of the most famous white wines in France – is also just a short drive away. Exploring the area is a delight, but guests are equally happy to unwind at the château’s spa, soak in the azure pool, or relax by a sizzling open fire with a glass of the château’s own Chablis.

This is a beautiful Chateau that is quite remote. There is breakfast available but no dinner. The gate and door are locked at night, and it is no small feat to get with both an electronic gate and old-fashioned keys. The pool is not heated after October 1 although it is a lovely pool. It is quite a long drive to have dinner or even to go to a grocery store.

Response from Johan Bouman, Propriétaire at Chateau de la Resle
Responded Nov 16, 2023
Our restaurant serves dinner 4 times a week from the 1st of June until the 1st of October. Outside this period we serve dinner on Saturday evening only. Our outdoor pool is heated and open from May 1st until October 1st. Although we are on the country side we take the safety of our guests very serious and limit the access to the Château at night time; the gate opens with a badge and the chateau main entrance door with a key. A large selection of restaurants and shops can be found at less than 15 minutes from the Château in Auxerre and Chablis. Most guests come to enjoy the country side, it's space and silence and are more than happy to trade for some minor inconveniences.

We stayed at Chateau de la Resle for two nights en route to Italy. It was extremely comfortable. We were in Suite Vezelay and so had the swimming pool right outside our room, which was perfect. We were looked after very well but a group of charming staffs and owners. Breakfast was delicious. The chateau and its grounds are beautiful. We would love to return!

We absolutely loved our stay at the gorgeous Chateau de la Resle. We stayed three nights for our 25th anniversary trip and were so glad we chose this amazing property - the highlight of our trip to Burgundy. We stayed in the Vezelay suite located immediately off the pool. The suite was beautiful and had everything we needed along with luxurious bedding, bath products, and a well-equipped kitchen. Every member of the staff we encountered was incredibly helpful, responding with enthusiasm for our every request. Especially appreciated was the well-stocked honor bar with a broad selection of delicious wines, beers, and non-alcoholic beverages. Breakfasts were a delightful continental spread with made to order eggs and coffee. Do not miss the Chateau's Art de Table on-site restaurant. Easily one of the best meals of our trip. Perfection. The location is central to so many lovely towns, but also felt like a relaxing retreat. Very convenient to Auxerre, Chablis, and many interesting sites and villages. Also an easy drive from CDG. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We can't wait to return one day , hopefully soon.

Thank you Johan and Pieter for the fabulous stay at the Chateau de Resle. The house, grounds and of course the pool are unique, beautifully furbished (clearly a life’s passion) with bucket loads of ambience and style. We stayed in the self contained Noyers apartment - fully kitted kitchen, lounge, dining and of course a sumptuous attic bedroom with en suite. Enough space to park the mountain bikes, and store the cases of Chablis. Throughly enjoyed the Saturday and Monday pool side dinners cooked by Johan, and the table banter with Pieter. The salt water lap pool and quiet pool side setting offer a much needed respite, especially if you have cycled to Chablis, walked the river at Arcy and visited the caves, brought honey at Pontigny Abbey, lunched in the medieval town of Noyers or ambled the back streets of Auxerre. You are top quartile hosts Johan and Pieter - nothing is too much trouble (even loaning us martini glasses for a cheeky pre dinner cocktail). Loved the continental style breakfasts, your scrambled and the wonderful warm, fresh bread. The chateau is a must for those passing Chablis - is on our repeat list. As my wife Gloria said at the time, simply spectacular !

We spent a wonderful week at Chateau de la Resle in August. The warmth of the welcome, the uniformly high standard of accommodation, facilities and food, the kindness and cooperation of the owners and staff combined to make our stay a truly memorable, relaxing and totally enjoyable experience. Johan and Pieter have evolved a magical formula for Chateau de la Resle, and we are very grateful to Johan for his unfailing assistance and attention to our needs. All of the staff were very professional and helpful, and Mathilde was especially helpful and considerate. In sum, a wonderful stay and we look forward to visiting Chateu de la Resle again. Declan and Sigrún

A wonderful find in the middle of the rolling countryside. Not a conventional hotel, but better for it. Welcoming hosts and a delicious, freshly prepared dinner in the courtyard overlooking the pool. We went on a lovely walk before a hearty breakfast of scrambled eggs and fresh pastries. Recommended!

We've recently returned from a wonderful week away in the stunningly beautiful Château de la Resle, near Auxerre. From the moment we approached the Château we knew our stay would be special. Nestled in picturesque countryside, the Château itself is tastefully decorated with objet d'arts and paintings thoughtfully displayed throughout. We stayed in the Ferme - an annexe to the Château - with the pool directly outside. The attention to detail continued in our accommodation - understated and very cool, Breakfast in the Château itself was the perfect start to a day of exploring the local area - great coffee! Dinner, offered Saturday through to Tuesday, was a gastronomic delight. Vegetarians catered for by the talented chef. Perhaps what made our stay particularly memorable was Johan and his team of wonderful staff (not forgetting Monty the cat!) Friendly and helpful, they could not have done more to accommodate our requests. They were the perfect hosts. A special mention to Mathilde, whose service was impeccable. We loved the region - a visit to Dijon, wine tasting at Prehy and a trip to Noyers sur Sereine and Abbaye de Fontenay are a must. Thank you Johan and team for a fabulous holiday. We'll be back!

A beautifully renovated chateau near Chablis; rooms are wonderfully contemporary--bright and cheerful--with every detail well-chosen--but the overall feel is comfortable country charm. A pool and dining room is a recent addtion across the road; the outside lounging area behind the chateau has a walking path with modern sculptures, but not overly manicured. We enjoyed a lovely dinner there one night. The energetic owner, Johan, is warm and welcoming. I accidentally left my cell phone there and they sent it right away (I made sure to pay for the postage), all packaged in a new iPhone box--lovely touch.

Tremendous hotel with great service. We had 3 very individual rooms, 2 in the main house and 1 overlooking the pool. All were very spacious and comfortable. Excellent breakfast to set you up for the day too, nicely presented and delivered by the young team. We had the gourmet dinner on the Saturday evening and this also met the high expectations that had been set. The owners are on hand without being intrusive.

Having read the glowing reviews before booking, I feel a little deflated, yes it is a stunning location and property, but this does not detract from the fact that the services provided are very limited. I understand that you run the hotel as if we are invited into your home, at the prices being charged this is not your private home it’s essential a business, for this I feel a bar where you can have a variety of drinks, served by a bartender should be available, not an honesty bar with a poor selection of beers, wine and soft drinks. To pay 90 euros in a taxi for the nearest restaurant round trip, is another cost and I would prefer to spend time in your beautiful hotel than in the town. We were lucky enough to enjoy the food as we were there on a Tuesday, and had an enjoyable evening, but the food was fairly average, the service was pleasant , but we were not able to sit outside as we requested. As a smoker I was shocked to be told there were only 2 places I could smoke, one was behind a bush and the other behind a wall, if you do not want smokers to be seen, have a non smoking policy. All in all not the experience I expected.

Response from Johan Bouman, Propriétaire at Chateau de la Resle
Responded Jul 28, 2023
Let's not be naive! Of course we run a business and I don't see what's wrong with that!? I guess we all just have one home and I guess none of has to make an online booking before going home in the evening. The Château is indeed our home; as owners we live here all year round and we share the house with our guests. I guess one review on Booking wasn't enough and you probably felt the urge to add a second one. One would almost think you are making a "business" out of it :) Just to sum up our "limited services"; 4 hectares of gardens, a heated outdoor pool, sauna, steambath, Spa by Codage for massages and beauty treatments, conference area, gym, pétanque court, tennis courts at 2km, honesty bars, restaurant, electric car charging facillities, bicycle rental, concierge service.... And our "poor selection" in the honesty bar; 5 different local beers, 5 different soft drinks, 49 local wines (red, white, rose and sparkling) and a selection of 10 spirits. In my opinion an honesty bar feels more like a home situation than a bar with a bartender, which by the way is impossible to justify with only 10 rooms (but that is maybe too much of a business reasoning). Smoking is indeed restricted as we have had bad experiences with guests smoking on terraces and by the swimming pool. Since recent droughts we no longer wish to take the risk of people smoking outside designated areas as we have a lot of very dry grasslands and over a 1000 hectares of forest right behind the château. However we don't neglect our smoking guests; we just installed two really nice lounge chairs for their convenience. All in all I can only conclude that I am sorry you did not get the experience you expected but we know by now that it is impossible to please everybody
