Among the most renowned of the Burgundy villas, Chateau Aquila is a great place to start your exploration of the well-known wine route. Situated amidst vineyards, this 600-square-meter château built in the 19th century in the Haussmann style offers a breathtaking view of the surrounding landscape. The 4000m2 landscaped garden features a heated 5 x 10 m pool situated at the base of the vineyards!
There are eight opulent bedrooms at Chateau Aquila, three of which are VIP rooms. Every one of the eight bedrooms has a separate ensuite bathroom. The expansive lounge features a panoramic fresque from the 19th century, while the well-equipped kitchen, dining area, winter garden, gym, relaxation area, sauna, and steam room are also present.
Five automobiles can park in the courtyard in front of the château, which is gated off. The terraced garden behind the château overlooks the pool area and the surrounding vineyards.
Access to the bottom of the garden, with its dwarf fruit trees and borders of wild lavender, is provided by a stone stairway that is tucked away among fig trees.
The pool kitchen in the summer house, which is close to the pool, has a refrigerator, a ceramic hob, a sink, and all the glasses and utensils needed. The stone barbecue next to the summer house is a true heaven, perfect for long summer evenings and lunch parties by the pool.

Please note that the Château is not suitable for people with reduced mobility or in wheelchairs.


There is a 19th-century fireplace in the living room. With an electric fireplace system, you can enjoy more fireside evenings with loved ones without having to deal with the hassle of carrying wood and getting the fire going.
The dining room has a traditional fireplace where wood fires can be built. In our rental price, wood is included (this applies during cold seasons).
With large windows that overlook the parkland, the lounge is incredibly light and airy. Original features like the oak floor, wood panelling, and moulded ceilings create a real atmosphere.
You are welcome to use the library's books while you are visiting.

Evenings will be filled with entertainment thanks to an English-style pool table, a big screen HD television with satellite channels, a blu-ray DVD player, and a Playstation 3.
Meetings and seminars can be held in the lounge by making minor adjustments.

There are up to eighteen seats at the dining table. Similar to the lounge, the dining room's large windows let in plenty of natural light and showcase its lovely moulded ceiling, original wood panelling, and antique oak floor.
Near the dining table, there is a breakfast nook equipped with an electric kettle, George Clooney's preferred "Nespresso" coffee maker, a traditional coffee maker, and a Senseo coffee maker. 

The galley kitchen at Château Aquila is fully furnished with an oven, microwave, five-ring hob with extractor fan, dishwasher, large refrigerator, freezer, toaster and so on.
Along with tea towels, a complete assortment of kitchen tools, utensils, and accessories are provided.

We have had an exceptional week. What a great location to enjoy food, wine and each others company. We enjoyed an evening of wine tasting and a wonderful meal thanks to the chef. Really enjoyed the cycling round about. Thanks to everyone.


What a wonderful week we have had here at Château. Magnificient weather, enjoyed sampling the amazing Bourgogne wines and fabulous produce. We have enjoyed the pool, petanque, table tennis & billiards and have had the most amazing summer holiday. We will miss the birds of France and can't wait to return again soon !

Wine tasting, hiking up to see the statue of Mary, eating delicious food, swimming in the pool, playing billiards, playing bocce ball, riding the bikes, exercising in the weight room, visiting Beaune, shopping and touring La Moutarderie Fallot, visiting le Meix Foulot vineyard, touring the countryside. All in all a lovely and memorable week. Thank you


Words simply can't express how much we enjoyed our week at your beautiful chateau. We are a family who came together to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday. She is an amazing woman and this was the perfect environment to raise a glass (several glasses, actually !) in her honor. We've made so many memories, had great laughs, told stories, shared meals and just had a magnificent time together. Thank you for creating such a special home and for opening it up to others.

We had a fantastic time at THE Chateau. The pool, petanque, table tennis and trampoline were all used extensively. The house itself was fabulous and was a great base to explore Burgundy. I really appreciated to opportunity to see your cellar and taste some of your wines, it was really a unique experience and a highlight for me.

Our family of 13 plus 3 babies have had the most amazing holiday in your house. We wanted to say thank you for providing us with a wonderful holiday. It's a two week period that none of us will ever forget :-). We have created so many memories and shared so much fun. Thank you for welcoming us in your beautiful home. Best wishes.

Thank you for a wonderful week in this unique and splendid Château. It is definitely a superb combination of the ultra-comfortable (and beautiful design) with the typical ambience of rural Burgundy. In this magnificent place, everything you need, you have. A long lasting memory, and a good lesson for life in the "art de vivre". Au revoir et merci beaucoup.
