Les Arcis is an elegant country house set in extensive enclosed grounds comprising formal gardens and parkland with grand mature trees, an orchard, a vegetable garden and small vineyard. The original building dates back to the 1700s and was the hunting lodge of Colbert, finance minister to Louis XIV. There are many places to relax and enjoy the serenity of this magnificent property: long, lazy lunches in the shade of the great old yew tree; a barbecue by the pool, with views across fields of sunflowers and barley and over the park and beyond to the river Serein;
evening drinks on the terrace and a game of boules before dinner under the stars to the chatter of cicadas.
“We had the best time at Les Arcis - it is an ideal
family get away! Beautiful setting, great food,
swimming, and aperitifs on the terrace overlooking
the garden. I will always remember our
walk through the fields to a bakery in a barn to
get fresh croissants. I can’t wait to go back!”
“Serenity wrapped up in a warm blanket of Peace
followed by a good dose of Calm lovingly poured
on top. Easy to drop into from Paris, and then
to launch yourself into the rest of Burgundy.
For those with more sedate inclinations, lovely
fields surround, or even just meander in the gardens
and get out your watercolor paints once
you’ve found your lawn chair’s ideal location.”
