We were fortunate enough to recently spend a month at the Chateau de Cecile, and what a glorious month it was! The chateau is every bit as gorgeous and romantic as the photos suggest. The owners have impeccable style, finding a perfect balance between old and new. A grand, historic setting, yet with all modern comforts and amenities, along with whimsical touches and great art...all together a superb residence.
Whether we were 12, or just 2, it was either perfectly spacious, or cozy and comfortable. We especially enjoyed preparing meals, or banquets en masse, after outings to the wineries and the daily markets, for dining indoors and out. Most days were spent exploring the famous vineyards surrounding Beaune (about a 30 minute drive) and blissful dining at the many 1, 2 and 3 Michelin starred restaurants, all within an hour's drive.
A special love was for our fellow residents, the few dozen white Charolais cows that graze, that made our field even more picturesque and enchanting. Waking up to this magical setting is something I will forever hold dear.
The property is well managed by both Colas, at Squarebreak, and the caretakers, Gerard and his wife, locally. We were in fine hands for whatever need popped up.
I highly recommend this for special get togethers....and I thank the owners for sharing their gorgeous chateau with us...it was a perfect and memorable month in the French countryside.
Il est un rêve en Bourgogne qui s'appelle le Chateau de Cécile. Mais chut !!!, ne le réveillait pas, ce serait tellement triste.
Si ce rêve ne vous plaît pas, c'est que vous en êtes déjà partis.
Je suis impatient de m'endormir à nouveau, mais chut !!!, ne le répétait pas, ce rêve est tellement magnifique.
Idéal pour se retrouver en famille. Confortable (bien chauffé alors que la dimension des pièces ne s'y prête pas), décoration superbe et très personnalisée, des pièces spacieuses pour se retrouver, des chambres agréables pour l'intimité, plein sud, clarté assurée, accueil sympathique et discret, alentours calmes...un très bel endroit à conseiller.
"C''est une excellente adresse pour un séjour en famille ou entre amis : accueil chaleureux, décoration soignée, très bien équipé. Le cadre est magnifique, nous reviendrons aux beaux jours !"
Je ne peux que recommander cette location. Maison extraordinaire, pleine de charme, avec toutes les commodités et le matériel nécessaire. Accueil très chaleureux, très attentionné et à l’écoute de vos besoins. Du très haut de gamme pour un prix somme toute raisonnable. Une location parfaite pour se retrouver entre amis avec les enfants. A noter que nous avions peur d’avoir en peu froid par ce mauvais temps du mois de novembre. Mais il n’en a rien était ! Merci encore pour ce week-end parfait.
