A fun and very particular placePosted 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 CollectiPosted 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 castlePosted 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.

Unique ExperiencePosted Sep 26, 2014
Pros: Its ambience and history
Location: Borgogne, Dijon, Beaune, Cotes d Or, 1 hour away.
This is a unique and a once in a lifetime experience but you have to tradeoff typical hotel facilities in exchange of feeling like a guest of the owner, Baron Jean Pierre Potet, wife Corrine aand 2 kids, whose family has owned the property, 40,000 square feet of castle on 70 acres, for 400 years. If you are willing to carry your own bags to your room, no TV, handheld shower, no restaurant in the castle and only breakfast, although a gourmet one 5 minutes away, it is like being invited to a museum by the owner. Take a tour of the castle guided by the owner and you will admire 400 year old art, a piano played by Chopin, 400 hundred year old gobellinos, etc. Read a book in one of the various sitting rooms. Wallk ( or drive ) the grounds and you will have the oportunity to see a camel, a llama, a beautiful river, etc. If you really want to feel how it was to be a guest in a castle, this is it. I recommende a 2 to 3 night stay.

A unique experiencePosted Aug 8, 2014 on Hotels
The castle is very pretty and well worth a visit. The baron is as unique as the castle. We loved it, but if you are seeking comfort and luxury, this is not the place.

En oplevelsePosted Aug 2, 2013 on Hotels
Slottet er et levende museum, som man kan få lov til at opleve. Slotejeren tudser rundt og er lidt knotten over sin fremskredne alder og vil gerne sælge slottet. Morgenmaden får man i et mindre rum, sammen med de andre beboere af meget forskellig nationalitet m.v. 1-2 overnatninger er en god oplevelse, hvis man værdsætter en smuk bygning og smukke rum, med udsøgte detaljer - men ikke nyt og ikke moderne luksus.

AmazingPosted Jul 20, 2013 on Hotels
The chateau is an amazing building. The Baron let us look around at all the rooms we chose to see. The only concern was that we did not realize breakfast was extra! Overall beautiful and wonderful.

Vie de chateauPosted May 21, 2013 on Hotels
Excellent accueil, les propriétaires sont vraiment très sympas et cultivés, aiment bien discuter. Cadre agréable, chambre très spacieuse et tranquille. Les pièces du chateau sont magnifiques. S'il n'y avait pas l'électricité on se sentirait comme en 1850 ! :-) Le petit déjeuner dans les appartements privés est copieux, croissants et pains ficelle frais du matin, beurre confitures, jambon, coupe de fraises, fruits frais, yaourt, jus d'orange, café thé... de quoi bien commencer la journée !
