Built in the XIII & XIV century, a 100 acres of ground on the banks of the Cousin Rive. The luxury moated Chateau de Vault de Lugny is an exceptionally enchanting chateau with very comfortable rooms and bathrooms, all beautifully decorated. Upon arriving at this chateau the first thing you find is a closed gate from where it is necessary to ring an intercom so they can open it from the inside. Once past the gate, you drive slowly into the property until you reach the front of the chateau, where there will be staff members who already know who you are, and are there waiting to welcome you, carry the luggage, and show to your room. All of this provides the first taste of the chateau lifestyle. Once in the room, another staff member comes bringing complimentary white wine and appetizers; by then, you really feel like being in a high class place, and you are! Dinning at the Chateau de Vault de Lugny is also an unforgettable experience with the authentic Burgundy cuisine. The Menu features regional specialties, served with seasonal produce from the Chateau's own garden and local farms. The wine cellar boasts an exclusive selection of the Burgundy vintages.
