Between Chablis and Auxerre, in the heart of wine-growing Burgundy, Johan Bouman and Pieter Franssens welcome guests to their home, the Château de la Resle, in the intimacy of their boutique hotel with a highly arty identity. This exclusive address is nestled on the edge of the forest, in a charming 17th century manor house surrounded by two hectares of gardens with greenhouses and orchards. A refined, romantic, and sophisticated universe where one is received as a friend. Inside, the luxuriously renovated building combines original architectural elements, Burgundy stone, spectacular staircases, ornaments, moldings and majestic fireplaces, with the owners’ personal art collection, those discerning lovers of architecture, design, and contemporary art. ‘Wow’ will live on the tip of your tongue!
Ten rooms and suites, all unique, scattered throughout the castle, in the old farmhouse or the keeper’s house, make up a collection of eclectic and stylish refuges in which antiques, design pieces, ceramics, paintings, sculptures and china collectibles mingle. A museographic and decorative world, which stimulates the senses and soothes the spirit, thanks to a careful welcome and a multitude of personalized experiences: electric bike rental, private dinners at the guest table in the castle’s old farmhouse (by reservation on weekends), fitness room and private access to the spa, managed responsibly by the castle’s guests in order to limit the environmental impact.
Perhaps you were excpecting someting else? And yet! This is the Château de la Resle’s final strong point: an intelligent, controlled approach to hospitality that mixes fine luxury and ecology in an in-house “ecoluxury” concept. This is a superb statement that has been skillfully put into practice, since the hotel, which has been rehabilitated according to limit its energy consumption, favors short circuits, local produce, organic products, and reusable containers and packaging. Inspiring and inspired, a charming hot spot to enjoy beauty in all its forms guilt-free.
RESTAURANT – Open Saturdays in low season; Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays and Tuesday evenings, by reservation, from June to October. This is a very private restaurant that cooks ultra-fresh, depending on what’s available, alternating gastronomic proposals, regional specialties and super foods. On closed days and at lunch time, enjoy homemade poke bowls.
SWIMMING POOL – Surrounded by greenery and open to the forest, the ideal place to chill out all day and recharge your batteries.
SPA & WELLNESS – Privatized and filled with design pieces, works of art and beautiful objects, the spa houses a sauna, hammam, and cabins where you can enjoy treatments and massages. On request, Johan and Pieter can organize fitness sessions with a coach, private classes of hatha or kundalini yoga, and customized days that mix everything!
