A castle hotel for golfers in France is not all that common. At the Château de Chailly, you can literally step outside and onto the course.
Guest rooms at the château are spacious with clean and comfortable decor. With the exception of the suites, which are in the main part of the château or its towers, rooms are found in the wings attached to the main building. Some have small terraces. All have large bathrooms with nice touches such as heated towel racks and bathrobes, and all rooms are air-conditioned.
Restaurant options at the château are either at the Armançon, where you can indulge in gourmet fare in a formal main or private dining room, or the Rubillon, a buffet-style situation in a vaulted hall. The hotel also offers an English-style bar and a wine-tasting cellar.
