Staying at the luxurious 5-star Château de Lugny, very close to the unmissable Vezelay Abbey, means spending an unforgettable luxury holiday in a Burgundian heritage hotel classified as a historic monument, set in the middle of a 40-hectare park. The first castle of Lugny was built in the 12th century, and the 15th century saw the construction of the main house and the buildings around visible today.
Surrounding walls pierced with loopholes, square tower of 19m high, large courtyard surrounded by moates, enter the history of France through the large gate open to the promess of a luxurious, exotic and authentic stay in the heart of Burgundy.
While the magnificent indoor swimming pool invites you to exercise or relax, the 40-hectare park sheltering a sycamore tree, classified as a historic monument, invites you to take a stroll, perhaps to the vegetable garden to discover the lair of the Michelin-starred Chef, who draws on 140 varieties of fruits and vegetables to offer you the best of its cuisine, or enjoy a gourmet picnic by the river prepared by the Chef, made of homemade terrine dishes with pineapple chutney and a just cooked French baguette.
