Place to sleep: Chateau de Malaisy, Fain-lès-Montbard, France

A June Morning

A June Morning

No other guests share our view from the Chateau de Malaisy in early June - just a few weeks before the French begin their mass summer exodus into the countryside. We awake to song birds and a light, warm breeze rustling through early summer leaves ...

About this place:

Located about a 30 minute drive north of Dijon, France, this 17th century 37-acre estate opened its doors to the public as a hotel/restaurant in the late 1980s. The Chateau features a gourmet restaurant, an animal park, pool, and a very friendly and helpful, English-speaking staff. In the hills nearby, history buffs can see the landscape where Caesar finished off Gaulish resistance and captured Vercingetorix in 46 BC. Medieval villages, like Flavigny-sur-Ozerain, monasteries (Abbey de Fontenay), and outdoor activities in the wooded hills or on the Bourgogne Canal round out a break in this pretty corner of rural France.
