Review 304: Owner, Chateau de Longecourt
2-bedroom apartment in castle south of Dijon, Burgundy
July 10, 2002, 3 days
Wonderful 12th century castle 1/2 hour south of Dijon. It was in a very small castle village. The castle is home to the count, who is a "regular' guy. When we left, we felt we were part of the family. Very quiet, close to the wine estates, Beaunne and Dijon.
Small village close to the castle with small shop and resturant. Large grocery store about 5 minute drive. Resturants within 10 minute drive.
12th century castle. Reasonable shape. Many original furnishings. Moat around the castle. Castle outside a bit rundown but nothing serious. Fit in with the theme. Five apartments. Everything tasteful.
Fields, woods, sheep etc. around the castle. Wonderful sitting areas.
Very comfortable furnishings. Large sitting area. Many museum quality furnishings. Very clean.
Very comfortable. Wonderful clean bedrooms. Modern bathrooms. Lots of hot water, good water pressure.
Castle provided breakfast. No kitchen for regular use. I am sure they would provide lunches if asked.
Problems or Bonuses
10 foot cartoons in a large barn next to the castle. Left there by some WW2 airmen who have a reunion every ten years.
Agency and Representatives (and price)
Dealt with the Count Roland directly. Everything went smoothly.
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
I would love to stay again. The castle was recommended by my sister-in-law who has stayed 3 times.
Things to do in this area
Visit the major wineries. Boat rides down the canals 1/2 hour away. Visit Dijon, Beaunne. Balloon rides can start from the castle grounds.
