La Maison du Château

Cry sur Armançon, Yonne

Families will adore this 18th-century Burgundy manor: tinkle the piano, row on the river, gaze at art - there's even a cook and wine courses


9 bedrooms


Sleeps 18


The 18th-century manor house on the edge of the village seduces all who stay. Its English owners fell in love with it and its 24 acres and took on the lot: chestnut avenue, tennis court, trout river and all. Children can splash in the pool, dig in the sandpit, play ping-pong in the barn, build outdoor dens, and row to their own little island. Large rooms have enchanting park or meadow views and captivating art on ochre walls. Floors are oak parquet or pale stone, curtains are linen and white, there’s a gracious hall with an elegant staircase. The kitchen has two ovens and enough china for a huge party but no need to lift a finger – Delphine is chef! A stone fireplace and an antique washstand grace one bathroom, beds are beautifully dressed, sofas are merry with throws. The barn houses two en suite bedrooms, and a wonderful open-plan sitting/play room with ancient oak beams, a grand piano, long table, colourful rugs on wooden floors, books, jigsaws, highchairs, toys; all is generous and embracing, while stone stairs take you down to the safe pool with loungers, barbecue and fridge. Bring extra friends and let the Gate House too.

We had the most amazing week at La Maison de Chateau. Beautiful house and wonderful cook. We were thoroughly spoilt and our family and friends spent the whole week smiling. I cannot think of a negative thing to say except the piano needs tuning and I'm sure Marykate would arrange that if asked. She seems to have thought of everything else. All descriptions and photos are 100% accurate.
