Chateau de Germigney        

 Rue Edgar-Faure 39600 Port-Lesney − France

Member of Relais & Chateaux

Château de Germigney bears the name of the marquis who, during the 18thcentury, forged the identity of this former hunting lodge. The Marquis was a pure epicurean continually finding any reason, valid or not, to party. Sometimes we can almost hear the walls still laughing at all his antics. The love of welcoming guests to the Château still lives on and we hope that you may be amongst the future guests at the Chateau.

Whilst the chateau has always been a place of festivities the hotel was actually transformed into a hotel in 1830. The reputation and renown of the hotel was considerably enhanced by the late Mr Edgar Faure who was a regular guest at the hotel over a long period of time.

In 1996 the hotel was given a new fresh lease of life by Véréna and Roland Schön Enchanted by this manor, the esteemed couple of interior architects bought the Chateau and began the renovation works. In 1997 the Chateau de Germigney reopened and in 1999 became a proud member of Relais & Châteaux. The year 1999 became a very good “millésime” for the Chateau!
