Chateau de Vaulx
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 24, 2013

This place is stunning inside and out. Lovely views of the surrounding area, beautiful furniture and art everywhere. Excellent meals. Marty is a charming host.

This part of Burgundy deserves more visitors than it gets, but that is good for those who do come because you don't see many tourists. We enjoyed visiting Chateau de Dree and Chateau de Digoine-- both magificent with fine gardens. We had an outstanding lunch at Restaurant de la Poste in Poisson.

Highly recommended.

We wished we were staying longer, with so much to see and do in the area another day or two enjoying staying at the Chateau de Vaulx would have been a great end to our French holiday.
The chateau is beautiful, comfortable and well furnished. We could have looked at the view all day. Marty is a most welcoming host, and also a good cook. We watched some of the preparations for our delicious dinner of fish with aubergines and tomato, risotto, cheese and poached spiced pears, all really great.
The grounds are beautiful with avenues of trees, lots of flowers, a vegetable garden and alo a lap pool.
We hope to go back, and greatly recommend it.

Room Tip: We stayed in the stable block, with a balcony.

We stayed with Marty for 2 nights on our way down to the south of France - what a fantastic chateau, the views were just amazing, the hospitality was perfect and the rooms just stunning. Our children loved the swimming pool and enjoyed exploring the wonderful grounds. We will definitely be returning soon for another visit!

I was taken here as a surprise by my fiance on our way back from a holiday in the Alps. The chateau is superb - we had the apartment to ourselves so had the choice of 4 beds! The attention to detail is excellent and our hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful. We enjoyed walking around the grounds and taking in the beautiful views across the French countryside whilst we enjoyed our breakfast. I can't recommend Chateau de Vaulx enough, it's so romantic - I'm hoping we'll get a chance to return soon.

Our second stay at this stunning chateau - we simply had to come back and arranged our camping trip to France this year to be able to do just that! We stayed again for one night on our way home from our holiday further south in France and - was it as good as we remembered? - no, it was even better!
A chateau with such style and ambience created by its wonderful host Marty and his team.
On arrival, we were immediately made to feel welcome and were able to relax in the grounds with a glass of wine to take in the stunning views from all around. The addition of a swimming pool available to guests this year is just more than fantastic and we enjoyed a swim before going off for an evening meal locally, (booked for us by Marty). We stayed in the suite Choiseul which was perfect for us - two adults and our 14 year old daughter. The room has a very large en suite bathroom and separate sleeping areas (one double bed in one area and twin beds in the other area - (so able to sleep 4 very comfortably).
We took breakfast in the large dining room around the table and had everything we could have possibly wanted.
Sadly we had to leave - but not before we were able to look at the latest Chateau De Vaulx development - the Gite Damas, again superb elegance and such space! Definitely now looking for a time we can come back for a stay here too.....

We booked an overnight stopover at Chateau de Vaulx this past Saturday night on our way to Samoens, and were so pleased that we stayed with Marty & Team.

The location and venue are stunning and enchanting. We all enjoyed the chance to unwind in the swimming pool and Marty recommended and booked for us great restaurant nearby to eat that night.

The family room we stayed in for the night was spacious and perfectly suited for 2 adults and 2 children, with en suite facilities.

The chateau has been sympathetically restored over the years, and the attention to detail is very impressive. It feels like a real "home from home".

If you are looking for a stay in this area, forget the rest and book the best here.

We will definitely return and stay longer next time, and will recommend this venue to all our friends and family.

Many thanks Marty!!

Au revoir, Mark, Amanda, Amelie & Charlie

My princess loved our short stay. Marty is a very gracious host. We were lucky to have our room upgraded so we could enjoy the fantastic view. Fear not, the magnificent views are also enjoyable from the terrasse where we had breakfast, even though the cosy dining room was very tempting. Highly recommended.
