Dracy-Les-Couches chateau / country house description

The stunning Chateau de Fremont, built in 1900 as a gift for Cecile Sorel (a famous actress) from her lover, is in a perfect location near Morvan (a protected natural park) and the excellent vineyards of the Cote d’Or, right in the heart of Burgundy. The vast estate sprawls over 10 acres and the view from the house looks over miles of unspoilt valley. The Chateau de Fremont is surrounded by grassland and a forest and there is a lake, a fishing pond, a private swimming pool and a tennis court for the use of the guests.

The Chateau de Fremont itself is steeped in History as during the Second World War it was used by the Red Cross as a hospital for French and British soldiers. Many local maps still show a red cross to indicate the estate.

Interior & Grounds:
On the ground floor the Orangerie, a traditional château annex, is the largest room in the château and is available for workshops, receptions and dinners. The château kitchen is next to it making it convenient to serve food and drinks. Also on the ground floor, there are four large rooms– a library, a television room with home cinema, a sitting room and a lounge, as well as a reception room, a hall and WC.

On this first floor there is a black and white room with 3/4 single beds, a balcony room with 2 single beds and connecting room with 1 single bed, suitable for a child.

On this floor there are three bathrooms and three WCs.

On the second floor there is the bronze room with 4 single beds, the triple retro room, (painted pink and black) with three single beds, the tower room and white flowers room, both with three single beds and finally the art deco twin bedroom.

                  Location

                  230 Kilometres
                  Nearest Airport
                  Geneva

                  The nearest airports are Paris (300km) and Geneva (230km) and the nearest town is Morlet 2km away. The Château is part of the Commune de Morlet, a tiny country village. The village consists of just two farmhouses and the château. The village of Morlet, a small community of 80, is only a little bigger and is just 2 kilometres away.

                  The ch??teau is an excellent starting point for exploring the local area and taking part in a wide variety of activities. It is located south-east of the Morvan between Autun and Beaune. Beaune, Autun, Nolay, Chalon, Dijon, and Chateau Chinon are nearby and provide many kinds of touristic and cultural opportunities: museums, festivals, exhibitions. The area also includes numerous ch��teaux and other historical sites, including world famous vineyards and wine cellars where you can taste and buy excellent Burgundy wines by the bottle or ������en vrac???. The château has all the information needed to plan your trips. Restaurants, a small supermarket, a bakery and a butcher are only 8 km away in the small town of Epinac.

                  There are also excellent walks available around the chateau, with many trips starting at the chateau. They range from 4km upwards depending on how strenuous you want the walk to be, but all of them will provide stunning views and sights. The Morvan is the perfect place for walking and would be ideal for you to bring a picnic, or get the chateau to prepare a picnic for you!

                  The nearest golf course is in Autun, an excellent 9 hole course which is 20 km from the ch��teau and 18 hole courses can be found in Beaune at 32 km, Chalon at 30 km and Dijon. Angling is also very popular in this area and the chateau can obtain a permit for you should you wish to do this.

                  There is plenty for children and families to do in and around Burgundy including visiting a zoo, an adventure park, going go-karting or making pottery. There are also excellent restaurants suitable for families. Children also enjoy spending time at the chateau and making the most of the swimming pool, the tennis courts, the play ground and the many ball games that they can play on the lawns.
