Fantastic experience of staying at Château de Barbirey! Never imagine how beautiful the garden is! Host was very very nice, and Joachim helped a lot as well. And the bed is really nice, I had a very nice sleep there.
Hope I come back again soon. And in case possible, here will be an ideal place for wedding when I'm getting married.
Amazing Chateau, set in absolutely stunning surroundings. Unfortunately our itinerary had us only staying for a single night, but we are trying to find an excuse to return!
We were greeted by Joachim, who showed us to our room, and gave us TONS of local advice. He was extremely helpful.
The chateau was in a small and charming village, which had a nice-looking restaurant, although it is closed on Mondays, so we were unable to try it. Otherwise, the location is fairly rural, but then that's why you're looking at the chateau in the first place, right?!
The accommodation itself was outstanding. We stayed in the peacock room, but were the only people staying so we're invited to look all around the other rooms in the chateau. All of them were excellent and I would have been happy in every single one. The first floor is more traditional styling, and the second floor has more contemporary rooms. The bed was also incredibly comfortable!
Breakfast was laid on by Joachim, too, which really made us feel welcome. I wish we had been able to stay longer, but next time we are in the area, we will definitely stay again!
A definite, in my opinion.
This place is paradise. We had some trouble finding it, but it was our fault not theirs. We have been staying mostly in inner urban apartments in France, so he Chateau ws a welcome break in beautiful countryside. It's eery bit as beautiful as it looks on the website' but theres no formality and it's a great opportunity to relax and enjoy beautiful surroundings. Joachim is a perfect host and is full of useful information. We particularly like the fact that it's as accessible to Beaune as it is to Dijon because we wanted to try the beautiful Bourgogne wines. Very highly recommended
We found the garden to be impressive and the host to be friendly. The town was rather small with a single nice restaurant with good food. The room had a nice view of the grounds but was sparsely furnished.
However, the bathroom was adjacent to our room, off a common hallway and was in need of paint as well as cosmetic repairs. Not what I expected for a dedicated bathroom. Some of the other rooms did have a private bath attached to the room, but ours at $178 per night did not.
The wifi works in the dining room only, not in the rooms.
Overall the house was adequate, but not impressive. Again a coat of paint would do wonders.
This being our first BnB, we choose not to complain, but rather enjoy our 2 day stay there.
Incredible Place, Incredible location, incredible people.
We upgraded to the "Honeymoon Suite" upon arrival as it was not much more than the standard room. This was one of the most beautiful rooms we have ever stayed in. Incredibly Romantic, felt like we were in a period drama Film! The chateau has had "minimal" restoration, but in a good way. The grounds and the view of the grounds from (most of) the rooms is breathtaking. You will most probably be greeted and looked after by Joachim. What an Awesome Guy!!! He knows much about the surrounding region, and really takes time to give you all the info you need. Relaxing is the key word to describe our experience here. There is a large Kitchen / Breakfast room, that you can use for any Self-Catering desires. This could be the ultimate picnic location Anywhere!
Make sure you make the 20min drive to Chateauneuf-en-Auxois for the food and the scenery. Spectacular. Lovely driving roads in between!
We spent a great couple of days in this beautiful chateaux, our host amazing & the castle a real treat. I would thoroughly recommend
