The Chateau

Discover the hidden wonders of Burgundy whilst based at your exclusive ch√Ęteau overlooking the ducal city of Nevers. Ideally situated between the vineyards of Pouilly sur Loire, Sancerre and the Magny-Cours racing circuit lies the fairy tale-like Chateau du Four de Vaux mentioned in the famous Hornblower novels by C.S Forester. The elegant sandstone building is believed to have been constructed in the early 19th century, while the towers were added later in 1840 by the slightly eccentric Baron Denis Durosier de Mangeux de Vepre apparently to conceal his many mistresses from newer arrivals! The interior has been completely renovated while preserving the parquet floors, fine woodwork, spiral staircase and intricate stonework of a past era. The chateau offers individually decorated, luxurious suites which all offer beautiful views overlooking the grounds. The castle is located on a 5 hectare estate featuring numerous century old trees, an ornamental pond as well as a 17th century chapel. The spectacular Burgundy countryside is vividly apparent, as the estate borders an agricultural zone to the west, where various bird calls and rolling valleys succeed in taking one back to nature.
