Chateau de Courban – First Nights Stop

Drive east from Chablis along the D965 for about an hour and you arrive at the oasis of calm and tranquillity that is the Chateau de Courban.  Situated at the end of a no through road in the tiny idyllic village of Courban in the Cote D’Or this place is a real find.

Restored from a run down Chateau by the current owners who have added to the existing footprint by tastefully landscaping the area and incorporating a pool, Spa and a number of new rooms surrounding the pool area.  What is really special about this Chateaux is that it really feels like a lived in family home rather than a sterile antiquity that begrudgingly has given up her soul to become a hotel.

The Drawing Room is a case in point with its comfy sofas and Grand Piano. It’s this attention to detail that really makes a difference.

The Gardens at Night

This detail also extends to tastefully low level landscape lighting of the gardens at night.  Which  adds to the charm as you walk back to your room from the Restaurant.

We dined in the restaurant as part of a stunning special offer which gave us a 5 course tasting menu with breakfast the following day for 84 Euros for  2 people!!

Heres some of the highlights… See Photos on my next link
