Domaine de Boulancourt

Bed & Breakfast

Spend days birding or touring Champagne's half-timbered churches; return to beautiful tea, elegant rooms and home cooking


5 rooms


Rooms sleep 1 – 4


This large and splendid farmhouse is irresistible. For fishermen there’s a river, for birdwatchers a fine park full of wildlife (come for the cranes in spring or autumn); for architecture buffs, the half-timbered churches are among the “100 most beautiful attractions in France”. Bedrooms are comfortable and handsome; afternoon tea is served by the piano in the elegant panelled salon; and dinner, including fresh fruits and vegetables from the B&B, local meats, cheeses and wine from the Haute Marne (south of the department), is prepared by your delightful hosts and left for you to be enjoyed in the dining room or garden. You will feel like a member of the family.

We had a one night stay on our way back from the Alps. Due to traffic, we arrived at 9pm, not 7.30pm as planned, so we had missed dinner. We phoned ahead and spoke to Christine, our lovely host, who set us aside an amazing feast for when we arrived! We were very grateful for this kindness and it was such a pleasure to be greeted by Christine's smiling face on our arrival! Our room was huge and elegantly furnished, as was the bathroom -Very clean and the bed very comfy. Breakfast was delicious with homemade honey and jams. The house and grounds are stunning and we would definitely stay again!

This is an amazing place to stay. The setting is stunning with lovely garden to explore and fantastic lake. Christine is a wonderful host and her sense of fun is infectious. We had evening meal here and it was delicious. The house is immaculately presented and it was lovely to have a bath rather than just a shower. It is located in a very pretty area. Wilson the dog is also another delightful reason to stay in this lovely place! We would stay here again without hesitation.

A lovely warm welcome by our host. A charming home with glorious grounds. Beautiful crisp fresh linens.


We have been using Domaine de Boulancourt for many years and always make a point of breaking our journey there either northbound or southbound; Christine Viel-Cazal is so friendly and welcoming!


We stayed 3 nights in this beautiful and tranquil house and fully agree with your write-up.It is a little out of the way for just an overnight stop but perfect for a longer stay to 'chill out' in peace. Christine is an excellent cook and hostess and a charming person. On our final evening we talked with her about France and the French for over two hours, the conversation flowing easily between French and English and it was a memorable occasion. We have stayed in a number of places chosen from your book over many years and this was one we shall remember with much pleasure. Strongly recommended


Superb old traditional French country house. Madame Christine is a delightful person. We had a very tasty 4 course dinner, preceded by an aperitif. I would recommend this establishment to anyone.


Quite the best B&B we have experienced. A gem of a place to stay - fine property with magnificent grounds and the most genuine welcome from the charming owner with her adorable dog Wilson. Like being part of a very enjoyable house party with a delicious four course dinner with unlimited wine and lovely breakfast complete with home made jams and honey. No touring holiday for us in France is complete without ensuring a stay here on the way down and back. A firm favourite.


I loved this B&B. On a wet day we were greeted by a blazing fire, the beds were very comfortable, the rooms spotless and stylish and the food excellent with local products. I can't wait to go back.


I have stayed at this wonderful manor house several times and love it more and more each time. Christine the hostess is just the best. So friendly, accommodating and attentive. You couldn't wish for anything more. Looking forward to the next time.


Very impressive property with an extremely friendly and relaxed hostess. Christine cooked us a great meal using a mixture of home grown and local produce. If you stay there you must ask Christine why her dog is called 'Wilson'. It's a great story, beautifully told.


We stayed at Domaine de Boulancourt on our way back to Britain after a couple of weeks touring France, and it was a delightful experience. The house is grand but welcoming; the bedrooms very comfortable; and the dinner (four courses including cheese and wine) excellent. Everything is managed with great charm and discreet efficiency by Christine. Quite a few guests treat it as a convenient place to break the journey to or from the Britain but it’s a shame not to stay a bit longer. Apart from the delights of the house and grounds, the area is well worth exploring for a few days.


Bubbly Christine and knowledgeable Phillipe make one feel very welcome. Christine's dinner and breakfast were fabulous from aperitife to red and white wines from Saumur.Will visit again


Loved the place. This is a beautiful small chateau with beautifully decorated rooms. We liked everything about it from the welcome, to our names written on the bedroom door, to the constantly available tea in the drawing room. Christine’s cooking is wonderful. The Tarte de Tomates is to die for. Our bedroom was elegant with a bath big enough to swim in.
