The perfect chance to combine bridge, culture, wine, tennis, golf , fishing and much more in beautiful surroundings. Burgundy is a hidden treasure with so much to offer, giving you a taste of the real France. Aside from learning and playing bridge, there is so much to see and do at La Maison de Chateau.
This beautifully restored 18th century manor house is set in its own 24-acre park bordered by the wooded banks of the river Armancon, on the edge of the quiet village of Cry-sur-Armancon.
September is one of the best and most popular times of year to visit La Maison du Chateau where there is a hint of magic as you enter the magnificent park with its avenue of chestnut trees, walled garden, ancient stone wood house and pigeonnier. The heat of the summer offers gentle warmth to the days, allowing for wonderful walks along the canal, and even a refreshing dip in the pool after a game of tennis on the hard court.
The house itself has a warm welcoming atmosphere. The 11 bedrooms (all with en-suite or private bathrooms) are spread out over the main house, barn and the gatehouse, which is nestled up against the gateway to the park. We will be playing bridge in the music room, above the old stables, with wonderful views over the park, now with a wood-burning stove to make the room really cosy. The house is situated just a few hours drive from Calais or on a TGV train line from London Waterloo to Montbard, which is the local town, 15 minutes away.
We ran two wonderful trips here in April 2012 and September 2013, click here to see photos and read all about them.
