A pleasing visit to a royal residence

Posted May 12, 2016
Pros: Driving through the Chateau's gates every night after trips to Alsace and Burgundy. The Baron who is just like a kind, wise and funny old uncle.
Cons: Carpet in the bathroom could be replaced and improved. WIFI connectivity in the rooms would be great but not having any distractions is part of it!
Location: An hour or so drive from main wine areas such as Chateau Chalon, Burgundy, and Alsace. Historic cities of Dijon, Dole and Bensancon are also not far.
Imagine receiving news from your parents that you have a French Baron for a long lost grand uncle and that he would be delighted to host you in a historic Chateau located at Villersexel, France before it is sold. And when you do decide to go, you will find out that the Chateau Villersexel is located deep in the French countryside and the drive there will be long but scenic. Immediately upon your arrival, you will be given a warm welcome by the Baron Potet himself and at once you find yourself at home- something about the Baron's character that is a combination of intelligence, charm, sense of humor and genuine kindness will make you feel glad that you decided to visit him and his family. You will be given a room that you picked and it will give you a majestic view of the lands around the chateau. The furniture inside the chateau is old but clean and comfortable. Decorations include treasured family memorabilia and an exotic collection of artifacts that have been collected all over the world. As you explore its surroundings, you'll notice that the nearby river, old wooden bridge, grassy meadows and quiet woods will add to your sense of belonging. By the time you leave, you will feel that you will miss the Baron, his hospitality and the Chateau itself because it seemed that you were really a part of his family... Of course, not all of us have French royal blood but a visit to Chateau Villersexel will certainly give you with that impression! A visit to this place is a must!!

Ein wunderschönes Schloß

Ein traumhaftes Ambiente in wundervoller Umgebung bei einer liebenswürdigen Familie. Man kann sich hervorragend die Beine im Park vertreten und sabere Luft tanken, wenn man lange hinterm Steuer saß. Der Tip zum Restaurant war auch goldrichtig und das französische Frühstück am Morgen war ein wunderbarer Abschluss eines wunderschönen Urlaubs in Frankreich.

Séjour à Villersexel

Posted Oct 3, 2015 on Hotels
Hôtel surprenant - magnifique d'un côté - désuet de l'autre. On s'y attacherait mais les chambres ont vraiment besoin d'être rafraîchie ... du moins, les plafond doivent être repeint. très bon accueil, belle visite ... bref, un château et des propriétaires qui ont une âme. Dommage que ce soit si cher.

Prachtig kasteel, wel wat achterstallig onderhoud. Voor wie bereid is wat in te leveren in comfort van de badkamer maar in stijl wil overnachten: prachtig. De ontvangst door de "Marquis" en zijn vrouw is erg leuk, met als bonus een rondleiding door het kasteel. Zolang het nog kan aan te bevelen; het kasteel staat te koop...

Övernattning på slott när det är som allra bäst

Hotel värt en egen resa med adligt mottagande av Baronen själv, riklig historisk information, hjälp med bordsbokning på middagsrestaurang och utmärkt frukost i slottets privata del

A fun and very particular place

Posted May 5, 2015 on Hotels
A fantastic experience, a real memory for the kids. We loved it but it is not for all- it is not luxurious but fun. It is more like being houseguests than staying at a hotel. Big rooms. Great and very personal breakfast! Beautiful exterior and a lot of history.

Chateau De Villersexel Chateaux Et Hotels Collecti

Posted Jan 19, 2015 on Hotels
The host was very friendly. Overall a treat for the kids. The negative was the fridge, kettle and plastic coke cups in the bathroom. A venue of such history and rich decorations can surely provide guests with proper mugs/tea cups and saucers for tea/coffee. With all the fireplaces in the castle, a lit fireplace will actually also be a positive as the rooms are quite cold. Also something to note regarding the google map on hotels.com - it takes you to a desolate location next to a cemetery. This is quite haunting for strangers in a country not speaking the local language....

Stay a night or three in a real live french castle

Posted Nov 23, 2014 on Hotels
Lets get one thing straight. This is not a hotel, it is more a B&B inside a French Chateaux where the actual baron is your landlord. He will have your breakfast laid out for you in the adjoining room from his office, along the glorious, wing that has history dripping from every painting, room, piano, sculpture, chandelier, etc. The 700 year history, right up to the last century is jaw droppingly awesome and if you have time for the museum tour by the baronette, then take it!! The animals they have living in the grounds are amazing and you get to go up close to feed them as the deer lick your hands. Villersexel is a medieval town that hasnt changed in the last 300 years and is as beautiful as the chateaux and the Baron's family. I will be bringing the family back to stay next year so that they can feel part of French, living history and experience the animal park too.
