St. Jean de la Porte bed and breakfast description

With 10 double bedrooms and more than 10 bathrooms to accommodate up to 20 guests in luxurious comfort, the Chateau Ste Genevieve even has separate staff quarters. The Chateau Ste Genevieve is available year round and the location offers an unrivalled range of activities during all the seasons.

One of Europe's oldest renovated chateaux is available for your family holiday or reunion! The Chateau Ste Genevieve is located in the Savoie region of France at the base of the French Alps. Originally built by French monks as a priory in 1032-1033, the property was transformed into a chateau by Barron Charles-Albert Favier du Noyer in 1828. The Chateau Ste Genevieve changed hands three times before being bought and completely restored by the current owners, who have brought modern charm to the chateau whilst maintaining an historical and architectural integrity.


The 10 double bedrooms all have en-suite bathrooms and are truly unique. For maximum privacy there is also a separate staff apartment. The views of the Alps and Mt. Blanc are breathtaking and host a range of activities.

In addition to the bedrooms there is also a large, fully equipped kitchen for relaxed meals and a more formal dining room. Two outdoor terraces can be used for dining and relaxing. There is also a main reception room for socializing. The library is the ideal place to relax and escape with a good book. The salon is a great place for listening to music or enjoying a glass of wine and unwinding. There is a pool table, a bar and a stereo in a games room. The home theatre comes with over 150 films to watch and satellite television. There is also a fully equipped office with PC for internet access, phone and fax.

Outside there are 17 acres of private grounds to explore with 2 dining terraces and views of the Alps & Mont-Blanc. There is also plenty of parking.
