Overview

Chateau de Varennes has been the home of a noble family for four centuries. The estate was entirely revamped by famous interior designers. Renowned landscapers have been hired for the gardens and outdoor designs. It is a majestic property, ideal for large family or friend gathering as well as weddings or any other function.

There are beautiful reception rooms, keeping their ancient charm despite the addition of contemporary features (high quality sound system, heating, etc.). 

Many sports and activities available in and around the property (private paths for running in the woods or in the park, hot-air ballooning, biking, clay-pigeon shooting, horse-riding, water-skiing, wake-boarding, golf, tennis and a big playground for children with swings and XL trampoline).

Burgundy is the region of France with the most Michelin starred restaurants, after Paris.  Beaune is the capital of Burgundy, an ancient and historic town in the valley of the Côte d'Or, famous for its remains from the pre-Roman and Roman eras, through the medieval and renaissance periods to recent history and modern times.  Beaune is a walled city famous for its battlements and ramparts.  In addition to its vineyards Burgundy is famous for its gourmet tourist trail and restaurants. Discover Burgundian food & wine and its heritage.
