Bourgogne: sleeping in an attic

Chateau de Courban © DR

A stone’s throw from the vines of Chablis and Champagne, this delightful building with its family-house feel houses a 4-star hotel and a member of the Châteaux Hôtels Collection. More than twelve years of renovations were required to give this place its current appearance. It offers 25 unique bedrooms and suites, ranging from classic to prestigious rooms, all decked out in sophisticated white. We confess our weakness for the latter: enormous, stretching 50m2 and lodged in a 17th-century attic, traditionally furnished but with a modern touch. The upstairs bedroom has maintained its nooks and apparently original framework, while also boasting a video-projector. As for the bathroom, this comprises of two footed bathtubs resting head-to-head – highly amusing! And in a modern spirit, an Italian shower. In the gourmet restaurant, chef Takashi Kinoshita – having opened a culinary school in Japan – has worked notably on Elysée-style cuisine. An addition to the list of luxuries is a 300m2 Nuxe Spa and lovely swimming pool. A. F.-M. www.chateaudecourban.com
