We stayed here for 2 nights at the beginning of August 2013 - 2 adults with 2 children. Johan's welcome was as warm as the weather, and he struck just the right balance between being there when you needed him and giving us space. The house itself, its grounds and surroundings are stunning. We stayed in the Chateau suite, which comprised a sitting room with sofa bed (a big one) which gave plenty of space for the 2 children; a large bedroom, en suite bathroom and a small kitchen. All 4 rooms were beautifully decorated and furnished, really well equipped, and had amazing views over the grounds and/or surrounding countryside.
It is a very grown up place - although at 12 and 9, our children were old enough to cope with this, and Johan's recommendation to visit the medieval construction project at Guedelon was inspired. He even gave advice on the journey home which was very useful.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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. ... more less
