With 10 double bedrooms and more than 10 bathrooms to accommodate up to 20 guests in luxurious comfort, the Chateau even has separate staff quarters. The Chateau is available year round and the location offers an unrivalled range of activities during all the seasons.
One of Europe's oldest renovated chateaux is available for your family holiday or reunion! The Chateau is located in the Savoie region of France at the base of the French Alps. Originally built by French monks as a priory in 1032-1033, the property was transformed into a chateau by Barron Charles-Albert Favier du Noyer in 1828. The Chateau changed hands three times before being bought and completely restored by the current owners, who have brought modern charm to the chateau whilst maintaining an historical and architectural integrity. Cooking classes and wine tasting are available on request. Please enquire.
