Chateau overview - owner's description
As soon as you enter the drive of this 500-year-old turreted chateau in Burgundy, your fairytale begins. Imagine a lustrous garden party beside the pond.
As soon as you enter the drive of this 500-year-old turreted chateau in Burgundy, your fairytale begins. Imagine a lustrous garden party beside the pond, part of the 3 hectares of parkland gracing this estate. Sparkling conversation can flow all the way down to the river, where any fishermen in the crowd may find their pleasure. Your wedding or corporate event will happen without a hitch, thanks to Brigitte, who will arrange whatever services you might desire.
Inside the furnishings are modern and simple, while rustic touches remind you of this property's storied past. A games room will keep the children occupied, even if the private pool is closed (it opens from May to September). Indoor gatherings are grand indeed, held in the beautifully tiled reception room. When the party's done, retire to one of the gorgeous suites...perhaps have a soak in the blue claw-foot bathtub!
A truly isolated retreat, the pretty riverside commune of Is-sur-Tille is a 15 minute drive. Get your groceries here (the local bakery delivers!) If you've a mind to explore the region, this holiday chateau sits 25 minutes from Dijon, and 1 hour from Beaune, the heart of the Burgundy wine region.

La Tour De Fontaine begun its life in1511: A man called “Pierre de Rey”built an ironworks beside the river to use the hydraulic force of its waters. At the same time a house was built for the ironmasters.
In 1710, the house was occupied by a family from the Haute-Marne area who lived there for several generations. The property remained in the hands of family descendants until the early 20th century. In the 19th century one of them had his coat-of-arms carved onto the fireplace, and the house took on a proper ‘bourgeois' appearance. Barns and an old outbuilding from the ironworks remain on the property, with a well-stocked category 1 fishing river (trout and grayling) and attractive 3 hectare park. A beach has been laid out on the river bank and there is an outdoor swimming pool heated to 28°.
The current owners, took over the property in 2006. They subtly convey their love of old buildings and stylish, modern and design, making this a distinctive and welcoming place to stay.
