Less than two hours from Paris, in Burgundy, a 19th century manor house and an elegant private dwelling.
About forty kilometres from Auxerre, a property with a main building dating back to 1852. Close to essential shops and twenty-five minutes from a train station with direct services to Paris-Bercy. The estate is located halfway between two villages famous for their history and character. The first village boasts a 10th century military castle, which has since been restored, and a 13th century listed church. The second small town is the birthplace of French pottery in the 14th century, a Renaissance castle houses the stoneware museum. These two market towns attract 30 to 40,000 visitors every year. A large number of restaurants can be found in this still very rural area rich with game.
Vast, well-kept oak forests interspersed with large lakes and ever present water, fields and hedgerows form genuine reservoirs of biodiversity. A small path leads to the property. There is ample external parking space in the park. The estate benefits from a lush lawn with a swimming pool to the front of the house. A variety of large centuries-old trees surround the dwelling. To the rear of the main house, which has been converted into a hotel, a small number of cottages border the landscaped park. A tree-lined driveway leads to an old farmhouse and a former orchard.
The Manor House: the hotel In the 19th century, the house was considered a castle and belonged to the family of the French woman of letters Colette. Indeed, Robineau Duclos, the first husband of Colette’s mother Sidonie Landoy, used to live here. The estate has been transformed into a three-star boutique hotel and welcomes a large number of French and foreign tourists. The classic architecture features a large number of full-height French windows with basket arch lintels and external shutters. All windows have mullioned fanlights, which enhances the bourgeois charm of the house. The white corner bonds bring out the powdery blue of the walls, a colour typical for this region. A cornice with ogee moulding extends over the entire length of the facade. On the main facade, the Mansard slate roof has two small-paned dormer windows which echo the openings on the ground floor. Wide stone steps lead to an elegant terrace partially closed off by a very elaborate railing.
Ground floor
The current entrance is the former kitchen of the house. Some elements are a reminder of the earlier use of this space, such as soap dishes hidden in a cupboard or a very old wooden piece of furniture which is part of the room. The floor tiles are made of terrazo. The entrance serves to one side a fully equipped, very well lit kitchen, which highlights the old floor tiles; and to the other side a large and bright living room, decorated with a central ceiling rose and ornamented with an open stone fireplace, where the white surround brings out the brick insert typical for the region. Burgundy stone floor tiles enlarge the surface area of the hearth in front of the fireplace. Large double-glazed French windows reveal three bedrooms overlooking the park. Two bedrooms overlook the terrace, each comes with a marble open fireplace with antique oak flooring and a fully equipped en-suite bathroom with tiled floor. One bedroom has an open fireplace where the white firebox brings out the black, finely worked angular mantel legs. In the centre of the living room, a spiral staircase with wooden steps leads up to the bedrooms. This staircase with handrail has a first slightly lower wooden step, its starting newel is topped with a golden pine cone, symbol of eternal plant and animal life.
First floor
An imposing and very bright landing leads to six distinctive rooms, each painted in a different colour and with a specific floral name, such as lily of the valley, …
