The beautiful 200-year-old Chateau De Gressoux has been the second home / artist residence of artist Bert Barten from Amsterdam since 2008. The French environment and the atmosphere there is described by guests as the pure feeling of freedom, a place where everything is allowed. A place where inspiring meetings and conversations take place and where there is room for creation and relaxation.

The space
Chateau De Gressoux is located in Vesoul, they also call it French Tuscany because of the landscape, the sunflowers and pine trees. It is a beautiful serene area.
The French shutters, oak floors and fireplaces let you revive the idyllic French antiquity. The time in which Jean-Etienne-Louis Roussel and his wife, Madame de Dambly, a French royal from Paris, built the chateau and stayed there during the summer months.

Het Landhuis has;
- An authentic large living / dining room with a huge fireplace and beamer / projection screen
- A modern kitchen with an oven, a stove, coffee maker and other kitchen utensils
- 6 French-style bedrooms with oak floors, fireplaces and views over the picturesque landscape
- 2 bathrooms
- A meditation chapel
- Sauna
- Outdoor pool
- A large room (120m ^ 2) suitable for events / training
- The chateau is surrounded by a garden of 2.1 hectares
- A private area where Bert and his girlfriend live during the summer months

Guest access
Three quarters of the chateau is rented out to Airbnb guests, in Bert's private part he invites sometimes international musicians / artists / friends, with whom he creates and relaxes.

Bert enjoys immensely when the guests of Gressoux come into contact with his own guests, but it is also great to give the tenants complete privacy during their stay. The enormous building with the outside space means that you will not meet each other.

Other things to note
The history of Chateau De Gressoux:
Jean Etienne Louis Roussel build his "castle" at the time that he was together with his wife Madame de Dambly a lady of nobility from Paris. They stayed at the chateau during the summer months. Jean Etienne Louis Roussel died in 1857 and left all his possessions, including Chateau de Gressoux, to eight municipalities. His wish was that it would be used as a charity to teach underprivileged young people a craft. This charity work continued until 1937. The financial legacy of Roussel was not sufficient to maintain the buildings and provide education. That is why an agreement was signed with the Bourdault institution and the domain was managed by the Sisters of Charity until 1986. Since 1986, the Chateau has been owned by a French theater director until Bert became the owner in 2008.
