LIVRES d'OR

Merci à tous nos visiteurs du monde entier qui ont pris la peine de nous écrire un petit mail, ou de nous laisser un message dans nos livres d'or présents dans les châteaux. Cette trace de leur passage restera dans nos mémoires et leur satisfaction réchauffe nos coeurs.

J'ai quelquefois dû "décrypter" des mots manuscrits dans nos livres d'or (sans doute avec quelques erreurs), et je n'ai pas été en capacité de recopier les messages manuscrits dans les autres langues que l'anglais et le français... Je prie les auteurs de bien vouloir m'en excuser.

Bonne lecture.

Well, 4th year with Kasteliades! Our guests as well as us LOVED the new Château. Every year is better and we learn more about this area. We will see you again soon, and keep in touch all year. Much love!

An incredible week of food, fun, fantasy and fabulous wines. The accomodation and facilities exceeded our expectations. A week of excellence! A l'année prochaine!

We have absolutely loved our stay here. Ten adults and nine children under 5 and we have all been extremely well-catered for! Such a beautiful house and setting, and the boys thoroughly enjoyed your wine tasting. Thank you very much indeed. The pool was perfect for the kids!

A really great holiday. The Château is amazing and easily accomodated our party of 19. The restoration has been carried out with great skill, and while the grounds suffered a bit from the massive storms in June, I am sure that they will soon be restored. Thank you Christophe & Sylvia.

Peter & Maggie Fairweather, Canterbury, UK.

 

We really liked the Château de Montsymond and enjoyed our stay there, thank you! We are already considering returning next summer 2017 :)

Have a great summer!

Hanna Lehikoinen. Finland. 3 June 2016

 

Chateau de Montsymond is a gem! The newly-renovated property with a large heated pool and extensive fitness-sauna is truly a find and stands out from other similar properties. It is perfectly located close to several small villages and towns, and is totally private. The chateau itself has numerous en-suite bedrooms, game rooms, tv room etc. that were all put to good use by our party of 14 people. All in the party were highly impressed by the quality of the chateau itself, the large kitchen, etc. and there is no question we will return. An added bonus is the wine expertise and experience of the courteous and efficient host, Mssr. Christophe Gay. Highly recommended!!!

Kenneth Adler. Raleigh. US. 10 June 2016

 

Beautiful location, outstanding comfort, high-luxury amenities, wonderful region. We were up to 20 guests and enjoyed every minute of our stay at Château de Montsymond !

Arthur Müller. Paris. 17 June 2016

 

Dear Christophe, 

Nathalie and I would like to thank you for the great vacation at Château Montsymond. Our friends were all very pleased with the beautiful surroundings, hospitality and day trips to the various Burgundy wine

regions. The people whom you recommended to help with food and housekeeping were great. Thank you!

Wonderful house and location. Thank you Christophe for all your assistance. Our party of 14 enjoyed every minute. Don't forget to feed Chester, it's a lovely little thing.

We came to celebrate our Golden Wedding with all the children and grand-children, 14 in total. We have had a marvellous week with perfect weather all week. Lovely sunny days made perfect by this wonderful swimming-pool. Nous vous remercions Christophe pour cette maison superbe et une ambiance parfaite. Nous reviendrons! Ps: Give Chester some milk.

Merci pour une bonne semaine de vacances! We had a spectacular time at Château de Lans. We felt like we stayed at a very private and exclusive hotel! The rooms and amenities were beautiful. We had a great week of wine, great food, and amazing baked goods. Lots of adventure and activities for kids! Christophe, you were an amazing and gracious host. The wine tasting with you was an experience of a lifetime! The activities you recommended were truly special, in particular the bicycle wine tour that was child friendly. We look forward to another visit to one of your beautiful properties! Vive la France!

Ps: We loved Chester (the cat).

We had our first family vacation in 14 years at Château de Lans. This was an amazing location to do this. The rooms & bathrooms, the decor, the large kitchen and dining-room...and of course the grounds.

We all enjoyed the pool, the trampoline and even apples from the garden. We loved exploring wine country. Christophe's wine tasting was "Amazing". The Chef at the Château was a wonderful night for the entire group. In a word, it was a magical week. We hope to come back & enjoy one of the other properties in the future.

A second week for the second half of the family and equally successful. I can particularly remember warm evenings in the terrace listening to the wildlife. Many thanks to Christophe for his usual hospitality and the excellent choices of wines to complement another fantastic diner with Thomas. Will look forward to a return to Burgundy in the near future.

Edmund Fowler. Kent. England.

 

Having already experienced a fantastically successful holiday in Château de Mercurey in 2011, I was unsure whether to repeat it at Château de Lans. Grandchildren all wanted to come, aged 8 to 22, plus my 3 children & spouses! Not once anyone said "I'm bored" or even worse disappearing behind an electronic device! They have tried everything from the gym, bikes & games. They have played water polo and various games they devised from the pool. We have eaten and drunk our way through the week, hoping our activities have made up for any excess. Thomas's gastronomic menu was a wonderful last evening. A marvellous week for us all.

Gilhan. Kent. England.

 

Cher Christophe, our extended family of eleven, including our two grand children, had a wonderful time in this lovely château. Thanks for hosting us in your home and for introducing us to an experience we will not forget in Burgundy. We really enjoyed the wine/bike tour with Florian. Our grandchildren made it the whole 26kms! Your wine tasting was both informative and delicious. Chef Toma's dinner was another highlight.

We appreciated your warm hospitality. Merci!

Richard Fraser & family. Vancouver. Canada.

 

Thank you for an amazing week at your Château. We've had a great time with family & friends. Hope to be back.

Ce fût une semaine placée sous le signe de Saint Exupéry et celà grâce à la famille Moirand (nos hotes) mais également à Christophe et à ses nombreuses bonnes idées! Quel bel endroit! Que de gens sympas, pros et avec ce supplément d'âme qui caractérise la famille Moirand & Christophe. Merci également aux Chefs Patrick et Thomas qui ont mis les points sur les "i" de tous nos repas. Pour tout cela un grand merci du fond du coeur.

Aymeric le Roux. Paris

 

Une semaine, cela peut être très long ou bien très court... Nous l'avons, quand à nous, trouvée vraiment trop courte! Entourés de nos enfants et petits-enfants, nous avons, grâce à Christophe et toutes ses équipes associées à notre vie quotidienne, passé un délicieux séjour au Château de Lans. C'est également grâce à lui qu'entre les délicieux repas préparés par Patrick et Thomas nous avons pu découvrir quelques flacons précieux qui ont enchantés notre palais et avec lesquels nous repartons fièrement. Nous avons découvert ce Château du bonheur et n'aspirons maintenant plus qu'à y revenir pour retrouver ces moments de plaisirs...Un immense merci à tous pour votre accueil, votre écoute et votre amitié. On espère à bientôt.

We won't hesitate to recommend you to our friends and colleagues.  We had a wonderful time and will certainly be back to Burgundy."

"Hi Christophe

I wanted to drop you a quick email to feedback our stay at Chateau de Lans.  Thank you for allowing us to rent your fantastic and beautiful Chateau, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and had an absolutely amazing time in Burgundy.

The property is wonderful, it couldn’t have been more perfect.  The use of the pool in late October was unexpected and a real treat!

Thank you to you and your team."

Mark Waller.UK.

 

"Dear Sylvia and Christophe,

 It is  now about  two weeks from our visit, but never too late to thank you for the wonderful time, we spent in France and in your chateau.

Our group (now 10 persons) is a group of friends, cousins and other relatives.

Our group (unofficial name SEPE TOURS) has been doing similar trips for 12 years (once or twice per year). Our first chateau visit was thus 12 years ago and we visited Chateau du Ludaix also in the "middle of nowhere" in France.

Then we had a bit bigger team visiting France (18). Since that we have visited Italy and Spain  a few times, Mosel wine area in Germany and even Scotland a couple of years ago.

 So far we have been lucky in our selections of chateau or manor house. And - yes - our good luck continued and our expectations were exceeded during our stay.

I am not complaining the relatively modest weather. Maybe it was a good thing, so that we had more time to travel around the small villlages, cities, wine yards etc.

 So thank you again and good luck to your activitiies and hobbies (= wine)!

 Best regards from all of us"

"What a great week we had at chateau de Lans! The chateau has been renovated and decorated by Sylvia, Christophe  and their team in such a great and tasteful way and is so complete (even more complete now, since we added an oyster knife) and luxurious, that it exceeded our best expectations.  During the week, we travelled along some of the wine routes towards Givry, Rully, Mercurey and Nolay, we visited the poultry market at Louhans, biked part of the ‘voie verte’ and visited the festival ‘Chalon dans la Rue’. We tasted great Burgundy cuisine and wines in various great restaurants near Chalon and Beaune. Most of all, however, we enjoyed the chateau itself, its gardens and the heated swimming pool (especially the kids).   The combination of an authentic French chateau, complete privacy, the luxury that the chateau offers and the fantastic region worked so well for us that we will certainly rent one of the Kasteliades chateaux next year!"

"We live in Miami, Florida and spent a fantastic week in Chateau de Lans. The chateau has been beautifully renovated and very tastefully decorated. It offers a level of luxury that is rarely seen when you rent luxury real estate in France or Italy. The chateau caters to the most demanding travelers and allows its visitors to develop a true sense of Burgundy. The owners of the chateau are gracious hosts who are personally committed to guarantee a consistent level of service. For families with children – like ours – a stay at the chateau offers an ideal occasion for real family time in an intimate and beautiful setting. We will most certainly go back next year."

C’est avec beaucoup de regret que nous quittons votre magnifique Château de Lans. Nous avons passé une semaine fantastique et inoubliable dans une ambiance chaleureuse et exceptionnelle grâce à cet endroit spacieux aménagé avec tant de goût où toutes les chambres ont leur propre charme.

9 adultes et 6 enfants (agés de 6 ans à 11 mois) ont passé des journées formidables dans la piscine, dans le parc à jouer au foot, au ping-pong, sur le trampoline, les balançoires, dans le salon, la salle à manger. Par beau temps le barbecue, et grâce aux beaux vélos chacun a pu faire des balades dans les alentours.

Nous vous remercions infiniment de votre hospitalité, et qui sait, reviendrons nous un jour…

Bien amicalement. »

Cher Christophe. C'était de nouveau une grande fête de séjourner avec toute la famille (17 personnes dont 8 enfants) dans l'une de vos magnifiques demeures. La dernière fois au château de Lans, et cette fois ci à Mercurey. Vu le temps magnifique nous avons passé beaucoup de temps au bord de la piscine et tous les soirs nous y avons dîné. Mais nous avons pu profiter également de toutes les autres possibilités: la salle de gym, le sauna, le hammam, le ping-pong, le jeu de boules... Nous en garderons tous un merveilleux souvenir et qui sait reviendrons nous la prochaine fois au château de Montsymond. Au nom de toute la famille, un grand merci!

Merci donc à tous les acteurs de ces projets qui ont rendu notre semaine agréable et vivifiante.

Bonjour Christophe,

We have had such a wonderful time in France​.  We spent the last 6 days cycling through Normandy and Brittany viewing the sites and meeting many very nice people.  Throughout we have shared stories of our stay at Chateau Mercurey.  The food and wine was delicious and delightful and relaxation by the pool and in the game room made our stay very enjoyable.  And your wine tasting tour was fabulous.  Merci beaucoup. We leave for the United States today but France will remain in our hearts as such a wonderful place.  Thank you for helping us have such a wonderful visit.

Au Revoir,

Jim & Sharon Ware, US.

 

Dear Christophe,

What a wonderful week we had in your fantastic Château de Mercurey! We enjoyed our stay in the charming rooms with outstanding interior design, the garden and the swimming-pool as well as the magnificent view of the vineyards surrounding the château. It ist a perfect place to stay with a group of friends (or a family). It is perfetly equiped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. We really appreciated the beauty of the château, the tasteful design and the comfort that made our stay just perfect.  

And furthermore the château is situated in an very attractive area. I hope we can return in the future. Many thanks!

P.S.: You have created an excellent idea with the renovation and the rental of châteaux which of an outstanding design and comfort. This is what many people are looking for. And you are doing an excellent marketing job from the creation to the communication of this idea (your website is perfect!).All the best for the future.

Hope we might see you again in the future.

Kind regards

Mike Simpson & family, England. 

 

Dear Christophe,

 Our stay at your Chateau de Mercurey so much exceeded our expectations that I don't know where to begin.  The serenity of the chateau and area was so obvious the minute we arrived.  Every part of your magnificent chateau was so accomodating, meeting every one of our needs. We especially enjoyed the balcony overlooking the vineyards and the village homes... Every morning we would so happily walk to the quaint village of Mercurey for our pastries and baguettes...The children LOVED the trampoline and the pool... Their parents so enjoyed their visits to the local wineries, especially their visit with you!.. I could go on and on....

 This was the best family vacation we have ever taken.  One week was not enough.  We chuckled at your apology for the cool weather - we were so happy to not have to deal with usual August heat!

Thank you, Christophe.  We hated to leave and so want to come back😃.  So sincerely,

Sharon O'Hea and Family from New Jersey, USA

 

"We had a fantastic time at Chateau de Mercurey. The pool, petanque, table tennis and trampoline were all used extensively. The house itself was fabulous and was a great base to explore Burgundy.

This was our 8th painting holiday in France and the first time that we had returned to the same Château for a second time. Why ? The facilities are first class, Toma is a superb Chef and a most helpful person. Again we had a very enjoyable time."

Un très grand merci pour avoir donné l'occasion à une famille dispersée dans deux continents et plusieurs régions françaises de passer un séjour inoubliable, dans un cadre prestigieux et un environnement de rêve, qui se prêtent tant aux jeux, qu'à la détente et à la rêverie. Notre seul regret est d'avoir trop profité du lieu en raison du soleil omniprésent, en sacrifiant la dévouverte de la Bourgogne. Il faut revenir !"

We were a group of friends – young/old, gay/straight, couples/singles, with children/not – from four continents – North America, Australia, Asia & Europe. We came together to celebrate some 50th birthdays. We loved your beautiful Château.

The accommodation was perfect and the view unrivalled ! C’est extraordinaire ! We ate like kings and thouroughly enjoyed and explore this wonderful wine region.

Some highlights in a perfect week : 3-star Michelin lunch at Bernard Loiseau, 3 star Michelin dinner at Lameloise, lunch at l’Abbaye de la Bussière, cycling along the voies vertes and to the Morvan, many fine dinners here at the Chateau, including Boeuf Bourguignon and galette de pomme made with French apples from the chateau garden.

"Hi Christophe,

I wanted to use the chance to thank you again for the beautiful week we spent in Mercurey. In terms of quality, service, organization, extras, infrastructure and child friendliness I have never before made such a good experience on my travels in general, not only with Interhome.

You really make an effort to let the travel company feel at home and enjoy pure quality time on their holidays. All 11 adults and 5 children had an amazing time. We will be back in 2012. That’s for sure Please keep up the good work! "

Philipp Grieder, Project Manager Marketing Interhome

 

" Everything about our stay at Mercurey Castle was outstanding. We misjudged the time to get from Paris to Mercurey, but Christophe still waited an additional 2 hours for us to give us a personal tour and welcome (including local wine). The Castle is incredible; luxurious, yet still very comfortable. The location right next to the town makes it ideal to conveniently walk to buy food at the local markets or try some great local restaurants or try some of the very good local wine. I have enthusiastically recommended both Mercurey Castle and Christophe to everyone I come in contact with.

Thanks again "
Don and Maureen Kvam, USA.

Livre d'Or VILLA SAUNIERES 

 

What a spectacular week we enjoyed at this gorgeous Villa. Memories that will last forever we created here.It is a beautiful destination and this will always qualify as one of our very favorite vacations. We greatly enjoyed the Chef coming to the house, visit from Lola for the massagesn and the day at Christophe's house for the wine tasting was truly fantastic.

Thank you for your most gracious and warm hospitality. Warmest regards.

Noreen Heron and friends. Chicago.  

 

We had a fantastic week here at Villa Saunières! We surprised our dad for his 60th birthday and created some amazing family memories. During our stay we had so much fun playing pétanque & enjoying the facilities and grounds. We rode the bikes into Verdun most days for croissants and pains au chocolat fresh from the patisserie. We really enjoyed exploring the area:

-Incredible wine tasting experience with Christophe at Château de Simard.

-Arranging the Chef and server to come to the villa for our formal dinner for Dads birthday night.

-Cycling tour with Guillaume from Burgundy bike tours through the vineyards.
What a fantastic week, merci beaucoup!

Leanne & Justin Orchard, Phil, Ian, Jacqui & Matt Pettit. Sydney Australia.

 

What a wonderful week. This has been the greatest fun and we are so grateful for all the hard work by Kasteliades to make us so welcome and at home. A highlight was the wine tasting at Château de Simard with Christophe and we most recommend it to those who follow us.

The team consists of one investment banker, a doctor, a general and an admiral! Everyone of us, particularly the wives, had a holiday to remember with enormous pleasure.

Thank you for a wonderful holiday. The wine tasting, tour of the new Château de Montsymond and our lovely villa were all just perfect! We look forward to visiting again!

The Montgomerys. US.

 

We enjoyed another (our 3rd!) wonderful stay at Villa Saunières, where we had a fantastic, yet relaxing, stay spanning full 3 generations of our family. It has been another pleasure, enjoying the comfort of the house, being able to relax in a quiet place, but not missing any comfort one could possibly wish for.

Another huge thanks to Christophe for the wonderful wine tastings session- yet another pleasure-and for the special Port, opened and tasted in company in our honour :-).

We are looking forward to coming again, perhaps next time we will need a bigger place to stay, as the family grows, but we will be certain to stay in touch and find a place among the Kasteliades.

Thank you Christophe and team for making this yet another unforgettable holiday!

Angelika & Heinrich Buergin, Oberwill, Suisse.

 

3 Generations of the Japes/Le Marchant family have spent a lovely week's holiday here, although the weather could have been better. We are returning next year to celebrate 2 anniversaries, a 60th and 30th, so we are sure the sun will shine then! The Villa has been set up with a lot of thought for a relaxing holiday. Thank you!

Japes & Le Marchant Families. Buckinghamshire. England.

We had a perfect time at Villa Saunières. It will be a wonderful memory for all of us.

Robins Family. England.

 

We had a wonderful hot summer week in Villa Saunières. We enjoyed the pool. The pool and parasol were care necessities as we touched 40°C this week. Every evening at 9 we lighted the BBQ and had a lovely dinner outside.  All outside dinners were accompanied by good wines but these could not match with the extraordinary wines of your cellar Christophe!

Tip for golfers: It's a 20 minutes drive to Chalon sur Saône's Golf Course. They planted several exotic trees, worthwile!! Hope to come back in one of your other properties. Thanks for the lovely stay!

Riana le Fever from Holland and friends (Gab, Robert, Pieter, Fons, Jacob, Hans, Robyne, Fleur, Govert) 

 

Dear Christophe, Thank you for an amazing stay. The Villa is beautiful, so well cared for and perfectly equipped. You and your colleagues (Pascal & Laurent) have been wonderful.

Celebrating the 80th birthday of Robert, we organized a family reunion of 4 generations. From the age of 9 to 80 we spent a sunny and lovely summer week at Villa Saunières.

Thanks for being a perfect host, hope to see you again.

Fantastic, great family holiday at Villa Saunières. Struggling to load the car with all the wine we bought :-).

Calderwood & Cohen families from London.

 

Christophe.

It is very remiss of me not to have emailed you earlier to thank you so very much indeed for hosting our visit to Chateau Simard and the wine tasting on Monday.  The five of us who attended were totally absorbed by it all and can't thank you enough for what was a highlight of our time in Burgundy.  We loved every moment of our visit and have been talking about it ever since.  Even more than that our plans for this week have largely been influenced by our experiences with you with visits to both Chateau-Chalon and the vineyards to the north of Beaune. It has been enormous fun as indeed has been our entire time at Sauniere.

We will depart tomorrow with nothing but happy memories and admiration for the way you have set everything up for your guests.  We have loved being here and are supremely grateful for everything.

 On behalf of us all, many, many thanks.

With our very best wishes.

John Lang, Hants, England.

 

Hello Christophe.  Just wanted to let you know that we all so enjoyed your villa and our time in Burgundy!  It was a terrific trip for the entire group! Your villa was just wonderful - we enjoyed the wellness center and can only imagine how fun the pool would be in season. All the arrangements between you and Anne were just wonderful - and those of us who were smart enough to attend your wine tasting will never forget the experience!

Thank you again for providing us all with such a fabulous vacation.

Looking forward to seeing you one day again. 

Always

Andrea and David Hirschfeld, New York.

Our stay in your house was really enjoyable because: the rooms were very nice, enough table wear and overall the house felt very welcoming. We enjoyed the wine tasting and the St Emilion was delicious. Sauna etc terrific, what else can we say. The weather was not good but because the house was so nice we were not bored. The fireplace did his work as well. And your welcome felt very warm. We will remember this week for a long time, and we will recommend your house (may be in the future we will return). Thanks for everything."

"Dear Christophe and Sylvia,

As a very close group of four couples we meet each other since 37 years several times a year. The last 10 years we go for a week or so to a nice place for a holiday together. We visited many places in several countries. This time we were fortunate to be at Villa Saunières. The villa is perfect, the surroundings are beautiful, the wine was excellent. Although the weather did not cooperate, we enjoyed our stay, not in the least because we were advised by you properly about which places we should visit...and of course the wine tasting visit at your house was a highlight of last week. Thank you for making our stay unforgettable."

"Cher Christophe & Sylvia,

Nous avons passé encore une fois des vacances formidables à la Villa Saunières. Nous nous sommes bien amusés comme la dernière fois, et nous sommes heureux à l'idée d'y retourner dans quelques années. Encore une fois merci pour nous avoir invités à la dégustation dans votre cave personelle, c'était une expérience très plaisante et édifiante! Merci beaucoup pour tout et à la prochaine!"

Thanks for the chance to stay in your Villa. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Today we had a beautiful walk to Verdun, yesterday a trip to Chalon and of course Beaune. The boulangerie Patisserie deliveries in the morning were a hit. Toma, the in-house Chef, was amazing. Well worth it."

" Lovely house, especially the comfy bedrooms and the superb pool, trampoline and other play facilities. We particularly enjoyed the massage and facials that Julie the beautician gave us on Tuesday. Also the wine tasting evening with François was great fun (the combination of good wine, François's english and our french kept everyone very happy !!).

Beaune is a good day out too. Many thanks for a good family holiday."

" We have had an excellent holiday here at the Villa Saunières. Facilities are wonderful. The swimming-pool was appreciated by everybody from the youngest grandchild (4 months) to the grandparents. Tabletennis, petanque, swings, football and trampoline were all well used as was the playstation.

The welcome from Christophe was excellent and we found many of your suggestions and recommendations very helpful.

An excellent base for touring the vineyards, and we were really blessed with the weather."

"Our group of 10 had a fabulous week here at Villa Saunières. The house was fantastic, comfortable, attractive and in a very peaceful setting. From here we were able to explore the vineyards of Cote d'Or, of Château-Chalon and Dijon. And relaxing at the end of each day around the pool and the petanque court was a great way to wind up each day. Thank you Christophe for giving us everything we needed to have a superb week, and we hope to come back soon."
