What we like about this property

We love that the attention to detail incorporates truly bold modern color and design while honoring the classical structure and flavor. It manages to be both romantic and provincial, sumptuous and contemporary for an inspiring mix of true French culture.  


This is a grand home with traditional roots but with an awe-inspiring update. Beautifully and immaculately restored, the Chateau has maintained its distinctly elegant 18th-century French roots and historic value but has been transformed into an eclectic residence by integrating modern decor and design updates. Rich color accents and original fixtures and materials harmonize with the contemporary furnishings and decor creating a surprising mix. 

Situated in the heart of Burgundy, this small hotel on 6 hectares of farmland features two comfortable guest rooms and four luxurious and spacious suites, each with an individual character ranging from French château style with sober antiques, to a more loft style architecture all decorated from a private collection of contemporary art and design.   

The separate farmhouse has been transformed into two loft suites -the Fontenay and Vezelay. Two stories with whitewashed interiors and open beam wooden ceilings, these private suites recall the original barn they used to be and are connected with a spectacular handcrafted oak staircase with a decidedly modern twist. 

Designer Patricia Urquiola (of Italian design brand Agape) has done a magnificent and imaginative job of re-imagining the modern industrial open plan bath in the farmhouse with clean sleek design and fixtures. The terrace and pool area is surrounded with teak and plenty of lounging and outdoor dining and the gardens are lush and constructed in the typical French country style.

With the newly finished restaurant, there is simple but fine dining some nights of the week (depending on reservations) in addition to the breakfast buffet everyday from a state of the art kitchen. With a passion for cuisine, great attention is paid to select locally sourced organic food and the the finest wines including the proprietary Chablis. 

This amazing Château has managed to make bold design leaps without interrupting the harmony of the home or countryside making this a unique French country experience.


Optional services include: Optional Saturday evening dinner available from June through October 1st and a gourmet platter available (24 hours minimum to book in advance).

Relaxation and revitalising massage: €130/hour, training session with a personal fitness coach: €75/hour, private yoga session for 2 (Hatha Yoga or Kundalini Yoga): €130/hour, bootcamp day: training session with a personal coach in the morning, vegetarian lunch, Kundalini Yoga in the afternoon and a sport massage to finish the day: €350 per person., electric bicycles rental (€50/day/person).

In the heart of Burgundy, on the edge of an 800 hectare forest, there are beautiful views down the valley of Montigny la Resle. The famous wine village of Chablis is a short drive away. Historic Unesco World Heritage sites, wine villages, abbeys and fabulous chateaux are located throughout the rolling countryside.

    We were 3 best friends coming from San Francisco, Hong Kong and Paris looking to book a relaxing place to spend a few nights in the French countryside catching up.

    The Modern Chateau completely exceeded our expectations on every level. We immediately fell in love with the beauty and masterful curation of this place upon arrival. Every piece of art, furniture, color, light, fabric and even spoon was considered, carefully chosen and designed.

    The suite was very spacious, comfortable and of course equally as gorgeous and as the rest of the property. I was ready to move into it if I could!

    The idyllic grounds and surrounding were perfect compliments to the Chateau. Well maintained grounds accented by art, a relaxing pool area and squeaky clean sauna and steam room which we used every day.

    I could go on and on about how magical this place was for us. But, one thing you should not be mistaken about. The most amazing part of our trip was meeting Johan and Pieter. Each day we stayed there, we continued to be surprised and delighted by the warmth, thoughtfulness and generosity of them. They are the magic sauce that makes this place truly special with the love and attention they put into running this place.

    We left the Chateau feeling inspired, rejuvenated and found two friends in Johan and Pieter. We cannot wait to return!

    Johan and Peter know exactly what they are doing. This chateau has been restored with such style and the attention to detail is faultless at every level. We slept well, eat well and spent hours relaxing by the stunningly appointed 15 metre pool. If you want a 5star spoil located in sprawling countryside – you must come here. This will now be our regular stop as it is midway between Calais and the south. A real gem

    We stayed for 4 nights in August and loved every minute of it! The owners/hosts Johan and Pieter, who are Dutch and speak fluent English, are like good friends who always know where to go. Their sense of place and eye for design is top-shelf as they have impeccably remodeled the 16th century Chateau in a warm and modern way. We loved our 2-floor room (The Fontenay room) in the newly remodeled Farmhouse, which is complete with a pool, spa and kitchen.

    Every detail of the property is well-thought through – from their art collection that is showcased throughout the property, to the tub with a custom-designed back rest, to the personalized recommendations and reservations they make for guests. We loved the evening dinners cooked by their talented chef, served in the kitchen and dining room as well as the option to shop at the local Sunday market in Chablis and cook our own French dinner in the kitchen.

    The breakfast room and Kitchen were 2 of our favorite rooms and the daily breakfast was simply perfect! The relaxing surrounding French countryside provided great opportunities for us to take day trips. Renting a car is a must!

    We loved every minute of our stay and can’t wait to return! Thank you Johan and Pieters!

    We found this place by accident. On driving up the single track lane with the imposing 16th century chateau appearing in front of you, you just know that there is something special in store. The hosts for our stay, Johan & Peter are fantastic hosts and perfect gentlemen. The fact that they choose to open their stunningly beautiful home for select months in the year to a select few to enjoy with them is to be cherished. From the moment we met them until the morning we checked out, they could not have done enough for us. The chateau is part 16th and part 19th century. Over the course of our stay we had dinner with them, shared stories and jokes, night caps and ghost stories before bedtime! We arrived as guests and genuinely felt that leaving we had made new friends. We can not say enough about their stunning home and hospitality. From swimming in their pool to exploring their house and grounds, to eating the finest food prepared by their chef and drinking their own wine. Thank you both for the memories that you helped make for us, we will never forget our days spent in your home and our experiences, conversations and time spent together. Until the next time we see you both in Chateau De La Resle, or maybe that weekend in Ireland we talked about!? All in all, a perfectly romantic, relaxing and luxurious getaway, hosted by two truly genuine and unique gents. We shall meet again guys! Good luck with everything. Your true class and professionalism will ensure your venture is nothing short of a roaring success. Marty & Chris

    We have stayed at Chateau de la Resle of Johan and Pieter last June 2014 for 2 nights. Warm welcome, stunning chateau, beautiful interior architecture and contemporary art work – a great place where we felt completely at home.
    The garden around the chateau is absolutely amazing including nice piece of art work. This all has been completed with a swimming pool including spa facilities and again all well decorated.
    We have enjoyed a nice lunch and dinner at the swimming pool area. The quality of the meals is very good- pure food in combination with nice wines from the Burgundy area.

    Johan and Pieter are great hosts with a passion for great taste and they can guide you to all nice places in the area. They will personally take care that you are enjoying yourselves!

    Special note for the breakfast, Johan is taking care of a fabulous start of the day- all fresh fruit, biological products and great coffee.
