The Chateau d'Aleny is an amazing 18th Century property located on the southern side of Beaune in Burgundy. It has recently been fully refurbished by famous designers who mixed a luxury contemporary touch with antique furniture. It was named by CNN among the top ten best wedding venues worldwide.

The Chateau d'Aleny is ideally suited for weddings, holidays and corporate events. Its location amidst the vineyards is also very convenient for wine tasting tours. The perfect time for visiting Burgundy is April to October but the chateau's brand new heating system makes it truly comfortable if you come in the cold season.

The Chateau d'Aleny offers huge indoor spaces of 1,500 sqm and 40 hectares (100+ acres) of outdoor space. The Chateau can accommodate 30 guests and larger groups for weddings and other events. The Chateau is a child-friendly place and high-speed Internet access is available throughout the property. You can also enjoy many sports from biking to horse-riding to water-skiing.

The lovely roman-style chapel is the perfect place for weddings and receptions which can be hosted in the gardens or indoors depending on the number of guests. A wedding planning service is also available to facilitate logistics (dinner, decoration, flowers, photos, videos etc). Please contact Oliver's VIP Concierge Team for more information.

The chateau has recently been revamped, adding a touch of contemporary luxury to historic buildings and antique furniture. The entire chateau has super-fast Wi-Fi, satellite TV with international channels and sport channels, as well as Netflix.

With high ceilings and extra-large windows, the huge reception areas are flooded with light and provide luxurious samples of the 18th Century taste for beauty and comfort. The kitchens are comprehensively equipped with high-quality professional equipment. This is the perfect place for a cooking retreat, especially if you hire the professional chef from the chateau. Lunch is usually served in the outdoor dining area (close to the pool). There are two further dining rooms inside the chateau.

The chateau can accommodate 34 guests in its 17 bedrooms. The largest double rooms of 40+ sqm are equipped with ultra-king size beds (200x200cm) that can easily be transformed into twins. All beds are brand new and very comfortable. Two cots and baby equipment can be provided upon request.

The swimming pool (16m x 5m) is secured with a safety cover and a new pool house has recently been added with a small kitchen and an additional shower room. The chateau is located in 40 hectares of private parkland with French style gardens and woods, allowing guests to feel totally secluded. There are many beautiful walks in and around the local area and this offers great opportunity for bird spotting. Shooting can also be organized on request.

Last but not least, there is a brand new private tennis court on site.

The chateau is situated close to Beaune and the world famous Cote d’Or vineyards. There are plenty of farms, food stores and markets close to the Chateau so it is very easy to source good produce.

The ever expanding and knowledgeable “Welcome Book” reveals all the local treats (organic products from local farms, fine restaurants) and must do’s (wine tasting, sightseeing, sports etc). Wine tasting courses can also be arranged onsite with a professional oenologist as well as cooking classes.

There is plenty to explore in the area, including a beautiful 17th Century Chateau at Pierre de Bresse, the vineyards of Beaune, Dijon - the capital of Burgundy and the Jura to the East, with outstanding restaurants and golf courses. The nearby rivers are also perfect for experiencing fishing or water-skiing.

Paris is 350km away. Driving takes 3.5 hours and the train to Paris takes 2.5 hours. The nearest international airports are Lyon or Geneva (160km). The nearest train station is 12km from the chateau (in Seurre).

Good news! For a little extra, this property is available as a Vill’otel

With a vill’otel holiday, you can enjoy all these services throughout your stay:

- Daily breakfast
- Daily maid service
- Deluxe welcome hamper with local delicacies
- Welcome drinks for your group
- Fridge-stocking service
- Private chef service

Interested?
If you’d like to book the Vill’otel serviced option, contact us on villotel@oliverstravels.com for a tailor-made quote! Typical costs range between £100-£250 per person per week dependent on requirements.

Please note that all services are subject to availability and must be requested at the time of booking.

At Oliver’s Travels we pride ourselves on going that little bit further for our guests. From private chefs to babysitters we can help you arrange those little extras that make it a truly memorable holiday. Simply fill in the concierge request form or contact the Oliver’s Concierge Team who will be happy to help.

A mandatory cleaning charge of €500 per week is levied on each booking and should be paid in cash at the end of your stay. This covers the full cleaning of the chateau at the end of your stay.

Full service is mandatory during peak season. Outside the peak season, self-catering is possible (except for weddings) and you can also book the cook and maid service on a per-day or per-meal basis. Full service allows guests to relax from domestic chores: cooking (breakfast, lunch & dinner), table service, cleaning. Pricing depends on the number of guests and requested schedules.

Many other services (babysitting, driver, laundry, chauffeured car rental and limo transportation from and to airport/station), activities (wine-tours, on-site wine-tasting courses, on-site cooking classes) and sports (tennis, golf, horse-riding, water-ski, wake-board) can also be arranged by Oliver's VIP Concierge. 

Please do not hesitate to ask for more details. For example, feedback from guests say that the chauffeured car is an excellent option as this allows you to avoid the hassle of driving on French roads and it is cheaper than car rental/train for groups of over 5 people in the same car (a Mercedes mini-van can accommodate up to 7 people + the driver). The chauffeur is at your disposal and can drive you for wine-tours or from/to Paris, Geneva or anywhere you land or go to.

Please note that all extras are subject to availability and must be requested in advance of the holiday (prices on request). Due to some rural/remote locations, not all services will be available at all properties. However, we will always do our best to fulfil your requests!

Enjoy gourmet dining experiences with our new Chef Service!
We’re now offering our customers the chance to enjoy some unforgettable eats with our new Chef Service! Choose from booking a single sumptuous meal with a private chef for that special occasion, or hire a chef to cook your meals for all or part of your holiday - it’s as flexible as it is delicious.

A) Single Meal Service: A chef will travel to this villa and whip up a fantastic meal for you and your guests. The chef will arrive with all the necessary ingredients as well as the talent to turn them into something unforgettable. They’ll serve the meal and clear up afterwards - an easy and entertaining way to enjoy a top quality meal in your very own villa!

B) Full Chef Service: If you really want to kick back and relax, we can arrange for a chef to cater for the duration of your holiday (or part of it). With a range of options from simple family catering to full-on haute cuisine, we can organise a meal plan and a price to suit your needs. So why worry about self-catering when you can have everything taken care of?

Of course, before booking this service, we suggest you contact the property owner as they might already offer a similar cook or chef service in-house. To find out more simply visit www.oliverstravels.com/chefs.

Owner Profile

Property Owner
Sonia

How long have you owned the property?
More than 20 years

What was it about the property that you first fell in love with?
The property has been in our family for 400 years

Have you ever had any famous guests staying?
Yes, we hosted a few celebrity weddings featured in the French and international press. One of our weddings was even featured in Hello!, the most popular celebrity magazine in the UK.

For anyone coming to stay is there anything in the surrounding area they should...
Really do?

Go for a wine tour. Burgundy is known for producing the best wines in the world.

Really eat?
Tomatoes and strawberries from our garden + French pastries. The organically produced fruit and vegetables have an amazing flavor. Our pastry chef was trained at a Michelin star restaurant and France is heaven for all types of food but it is a unique destination for people who have a sweet tooth.

Really see?
Beaune hospices are among the most beautiful and impressive buildings in France. They were built in the 14th century.

Lastly, what insider tip would you pass on about the property or the area?
We are offering one of the biggest private villa to hire in France (17 bedrooms). Sharing such a house is much cheaper if you gather a big group (and the more the merrier if you want to throw a party). Then you can also more easily afford to hire a private chef who will cook bespoke menus for you. And also, we are enjoying a very sunny micro climate from April to October. It is a dry climate thus it is never becoming unbearably hot as it can be in the most Southern parts of France, Italy or Spain.

ENQUIRE NOW

The Region

Renowned throughout the world for its venerable wines, Burgundy is an essential destination for those who appreciate the finer aspects of the winemaker’s art. This is a region where you can visit some of the oldest and most prestigious vineyards in the world and taste wines that are regularly regarded as the best France has to offer (which is saying something). As one of the richest regions of France for hundreds of years, Burgundy also offers a wealth of history and culture as well as beautiful landscapes that offer the adventurous visitor plenty of stuff to do, even if it’s just a walk to admire the scenery.

  • Golden eve for golden jubilee

    Posted by Robert C on 19/09/2016

    The owners and staff could not have been more delightful and accommodating. The details of the planning and the execution were thoughtful, well timed, and beyond the original expectations. The original information provided was accurate, thorough, and was helpful for the planning. Thanks to all - plus some excellent local wines and perfect weather - it was a great holiday.
