The Château de Nobles is a wonderful place. Bertrand and Françoise de Chérisey have opened their castle, which is part of a family-owned vineyard, to those visitors who desire a charming, idyllic spot to hide away.
The three large guest rooms are located in a wing off the main house, but in no way does this detract from the castle experience. Each room has a private entrance, with interiors featuring heavy wooden beamed ceilings, white-washed walls, stone fireplaces, and tile floors. Bathrooms are modern. One room has five single beds, making it ideal for families.
The castle is well located for touring the southern Burgundy region, or perhaps even a stopover on the way to and from the south of France. It’s a perfect place to relax for a few days.
