The Romans knew it long before we did. Life is good in what we now call the Nievre (south west Burgundy). In between Loire and Allier, at the centre of an old village, opposite an 11th century church, you’ll find Le Relais de Chasse (16th / 18th century).
Four spacious and luxurious bedrooms with well equipped en suite bathrooms are available within its walls. Outside the Relais you can enjoy our 10.000 m2 of garden/park. And beyond that you can experience all the great things the Nievre has to offer. In the vicinity of the Relais you’ll not only find historic cities & sites and overwhelming nature but also a number of –quiet- golf courses and the Formula-1 circuit of Magny Cours.
Le Relais de Chasse is situated in between the historic cities of Nevers (Nievre) and Moulins (Allier) -approximately 230 km south/east of Paris- and can be easily reached by the N7 motorway. Both cities offer a wide variety of shops, restaurants, bars en historic sites and are within a 30 minute reach. The N7 continues south which makes our place also very suitable for those of you travelling to the south of France and/or Spain and looking for a place to stay overnight.
The area is home to extensive old forests, combined with sloping scenery, rivers and canals; peace and quiet everywhere! Once home to the Bourbon-family you'll also find many convents, cathedrals, abby's and castles. And, lets not forget the wine and food for which the area is famous worldwide.
Apart from all this there is plenty more to keep you occupied. Go play a round of golf; go hiking or biking; visit one of the beautiful gardens near by; go tasting wine; explore the Allier-river by canoe; go fishing or horse back riding or....take a book and relax in our garden. You could even go and visit Paris for a day; the train form Nevers will bring you to the centre of Paris within 2 hours.
What a gem of a find! We were looking for accomodation near the Circuit de Magny-Cours and decided to try our luck on the Relais de Chasse. The village of Chantenay-Saint-Imbert is tiny and quiet, but we were met at the door by Diana and shown to our rooms. Diana was very accomodating as we were late from traffic problems, and she had dinner ready for us on arrival. The place is beautiful, a real memory to see the kids playing in the court yard. Rooms were lovely and the cooked dinners and breakfasts were fantastic. Diana & Ana were great hosts at dinner and really added to the experience. Will definately stay here again next time we are in the region.
Acceuil charmant dans une maison chargée d'histoire...
Chambre décorées avec gout. Malheureusement nous avons visité "le relais de chasse" en hiver et n'avons pas pu profiter du jardin...
We arrived at Le Relais de Chasse tired & unwell, our hostess Diana had prepared a delicious meal for us which was very much appreciated. Diana helped out in so many ways including calling a doctor & making an appointment for us. It was a much needed break & stay. We also enjoyed visiting Moulins, Bourges, Nievers, chateau Meillant in the area. Highly recommended.
We stayed three nights at le Relais de Chasse in "Chambre Paris", which was a lovely and charming room with its own little fireplace. The beds were confy and the bathroom was clean. Diana and Annelot were great hosts and they made us feel very welcome. Every morning they'd prepare a delicious and fresh breakfast in the building nearby. The village is a tiny but calm place and the surrounding area offers a lot to explore with its cities and beautiful landscape - excellent for a short, relaxing holiday! We would absolutely recommend a stay at le Relais!
We had a blissful sty at Se Relais de chassie. Dianne and Annalot were wonderful hosts, so easy to talk with and the breakfast and the dinner they prepared was wonderful. We wish we had more time to enjoy the great ambience of the house and the gardens. Great people and great place.
The owners are very friendly and helpful. They provide an excellent breakfast, you eat together with the other guests. The room was clean and nice. They have a beautiful garden. The place and the village is very calm. Would recommend it to everybody.
Diana's B&B was great, we really enjoyed our stay, the village was tiny but it was a great base to explore the surrounding regions. The room was clean and the breakfast was fresh. The garden is beautiful and a great place to come back to and relax, Diana also makes a fantastic dinner! Would stay there again definately!
Excellent B&B. The building is charming, the garden really special, beds comfortable, shower perfect, and best of all the hostesses were very relaxed, friendly and helpful.
Think about a place surrounded by castles and great wine, run by two extremely competent and devoted professionals. Great food and accommodations, simply a perfect spot to relax and enjoy Burgundy.
Para os brasileiros, o lugar é um sonho! Tudo aquilo que queremos conhecer quando pensamos na Europa.
We really enjoyed are stay at Le Relais de Chasse. The hosts were fantastic and offered a dinner option which was great (nothing better than beef burgundy when you are in Burgundy). Our room was lovely and looked out to the center of the village. The small village is very walkable and we enjoyed a great coffee at the cafe across the street.
