The cozy gîte of the Château Sainte Colombe is located in the Burgundian countryside and has rooms for 2, 3, 6 and 8 people. Although the rooms can also be booked separately, the château also lends itself well to larger groups (families, groups of friends, cyclists, courses such as painting, music, yoga, cooking, cultural tours, hikers, seminars, team building, etc.). ).
The almost 400-year-old Château of Sainte Colombe is located on a slope in the eponymous village in the Burgundy countryside, in the Côte d'Or department; listed by UNESCO as one of the least polluted places in Europe. The château is owned by the ARCADE foundation, which has been working for the preservation of the castle for more than 30 years. Apart from a gîte, there are also exhibition spaces (changing design exhibitions) and workshops and concerts are given (including in the beautiful courtyard). Language and painting courses are also regularly organized. A part of the castle (450 m²) is made suitable as a gîte with attractive rooms and other spaces. In addition to a kitchen, dining room, lounge and terrace, there are currently rooms for 2, 3, 6 and 8 people. The total number of beds is 28, but in the summer season (May - September) there are a total of 36 sleeping places. All rooms have their own bathroom and toilet.
Meals can be prepared in the well-equipped kitchen, but in consultation meals can also be arranged by a caterer (minimum 10 people). In addition, it is also possible (for large groups) to rent the professional kitchen (including dishwasher and large oven).
The terrace offers views of the lower part of the village and the hills in the area.
In the early and late season the heating is included in the common areas and heating in the rooms is possible on request (extra charge).
Sainte-Colombe-En-Auxois is located 7.5 hours from Utrecht (not far from the A6 / "Route du Soleil") in the hills of the Cote d'Or (Burgundy). The village has 60 inhabitants and is very picturesque with a castle, church and "lavoir". From Sainte Colombe there are many possibilities to go on foot, by bike or by car. The famous walking route of Julius Ceasar (Alésia / Bibracte) runs through the village. Sainte Colombe has no shops, but a small shop / bakery can be found in the neighboring village. From 8 kilometers there are several places with larger supermarkets and other stores.
We, Menno and Anne-Lise, have been renting authentic holiday homes in beautiful Burgundy for many years. Initially, we did this from the Netherlands in addition to our activities as restaurant owner and teacher respectively, but later we have permanently settled in the neighborhood of our holiday homes and we are occupied almost full-time with the rental. This means that we are always immediately approachable with any questions and problems. Au revoir!
