In the heart of Burgundy, this chateau is a wonderful example of old and new experiences combined to make a memorable stay possible for families and/or friends. The architecture of the chateau is unique and shows "Old World" charm combined with the modern conveniences that we expect in "Today's" World. We had a wonderful time exploring Burgundy during the day and then, return to the Chateau and cook in the magnificent kitchen, enjoying the local "fresh" market food items. The property was exactly as advertised and exceeded our expectations. A short walk into the village of Puligny-Montrachet allows you to experience the "world-class" cuisine at Olivier LeFlaive and/or the simple, but awesome local bakery for morning croissants. Our group recommends this property without hesitation - we will definitely be back!
Visiting Le Vieux Chateau, being welcomed by our dear friends, brought us back to the specific qualities of an old 15th century Chateau, thoroughly reconstructed with respect to its history. We enjoyed all amenities that the Chateau has to offer: several well serviced rooms, a grand piano, nice views on the surrounding vineyards. And of course great wines, nice walks and visits to the village itself and other famous cities and villages nearby. The autumn season with its colours made it very special. Luckily we could enjoy the nice terrace on the court of the Chateau. We certainly would like to return!
Perfect location to discover everything that burgundy has to offer. The chateau is great! It offers everything you need for a stay with family or friends. We enjoyed it very much.
This is a wonderful historic house in the heart of Puligny. Any wine lover will appreciate the glorious views of the premiere and grand crus! Everyone will appreciate the lovely fully equipped kitchen and elegant sitting room (complete with piano). Warning though - the stairs are a tight stone stairway, with quite uneven steps... so luggage is pretty hard to get up and down! Once up, though, the bedrooms are spacious and comfortable!
Lovely chateau perched on the edge of quaint Puligny-Montrachet. Lots of space, very nicely renovated. Well managed, excellent value. Have stayed many times.
The Chateau was like a fantasy. It dates back to 1443! First class renovations by current owners since 2008. The kitchen was great with a postcard view of the grand cru vineyards. The bedrooms and bathrooms were first class. The top floor with exposed beams was amazing. The town is sleepy but authentic. The support staff was very helpful and Karen the owner is very nice. 5 stars!!!
Set in the famous wine village of Puligny Montrachet, within 5 mins of Meursault, Pommard & other famous wine villages & 10 min drive to Beaune.
