Cheaut Hotel Le Clos des Tourelles

What first drew us to this southern Burgundy hotel was the setting: a 19th century country house, mediaeval buildings flanking a broad gravel 'Cour d'Honneur', Nine of the eleven guest rooms are in the understated yet beautiful Château d’Aubeterre, the "modern" part of the hotel, being only about 130 years old. The history of Le Clos des Tourelles stretches back to to the 11th century, when the fortified Vellaufant Tower was constructed in 1080. Other buildings, from the 13th and 15th centuries, surround a 'Cour d'Honneur' courtyard. One of these is particularly lovely, a typical piece of French vernacular with its upper-floor balustrades and pyramidal tower. This is all within 4 hectares of tree-filled parkland gardens with various rare species.

Adding to the tranquillity that goes with the hotel's grounds, it is difficult not to be seduced by the inviting jacuzzi, and maybe the swimming pool (open from June to September). Guest rooms look out over the garden and lake or the courtyard. In the tower, guests can enjoy the château's own wines in the 'caveau', Le Clos des Tourelles's arched wine cellar (the hotel is situated on the Burgundy wine route and grows Pinot Noir, Gamay and Chardonnay varieties in it's nearby vineyards). This is found in the Vellaufant Tower, which also houses a mediaeval reception and dining room with a grandiose chimney. Furthermore, a trip can be taken to the hotel's vineyard and to the winery, where the whole production process can be seen, from pressing and fermentation, to maturation, bottling and labelling.

There is both a small living room with a TV, and a drawing room with a piano, where guests often like to enjoy a glass of wine. Besides the dining room, breakfast can be taken on the veranda or the terrace when the weather is suitable.

We had 2 nights recently at Le Clos, which we thoroughly enjoyed. It is very much a true french hotel - do not expect a tv in the room, however expensive! We upgraded to 'Natasha' - a lovely room with a balcony overlooking the garden to the rear of the property. Plenty of character, and very helpful staff. Generous buffet breakfasts, and home cooking style evening meals, not restaurant presentation, but well cooked. It is an advantage to be able to speak some french, but a non speaker could get by.
The hotel is also well placed for trips out in the Burgundy area. Sennecey itself is not picturesque, but is near autoroute and scenic routes.
We thought the accommodation excellent, and we were made to feel very welcome by the owners. The breakfasts were not particularly good value for money, but this might be a problem with the exchange rate. There were good boulangeries and restaurants in the town for lunches and evening meals.

We may not have as many reviews as some, but we do know their provenance. They have all been written by people who have visited this hotel after booking through Little Hotels. We publish all reviews, unedited, except for the occasional spelling correction.

A Word From the Owner

Historic château in southern Burgundy. On the outskirts of the village, in a vast shaded park, we receive you in ten refined bedrooms, all with private bathrooms. You will find the pleasure of a plentiful breakfast on the terrace or out on the shaded veranda; you will be seduced by the calm and warm ambience of our beautiful residence.
