A chateau with some serious wow factor, this beautiful home in Burgundy was the perfect setting for our family holiday. Luxurious but also wonderfully laid back, it had every possible amenity - tennis court, swimming pool, fully equipped kitchen, gas barbecue, DVD with full library of movies, games room, etc – allowing us all to relax, unwind, keep everyone entertained and also treat ourselves. Would highly recommend hiring the local chef too for an extra special treat. Can’t wait to go back!
The chateau is absolutely beautiful, typically French and very tastefully decorated. It is also very comfortable and had everything our family needed. We enjoyed the pool and relaxed in the sun on the poolside seating. For cooler seating we used the veranda of the sheltered Summer house and a perfect eating and barbecue area next to the Atelier, which had a fridge for cold drinks. The Atelier also had every game imaginable and a TV area with a variety of DVDs and comfy seating. There is an electronic game/TV room in the chateau too, with seating for the whole family to have a 'cinema' evening.
Outside, we enjoyed walking by the river, tennis, boules and table tennis and the children made full use of the slide and swing. The garden is beautifully maintained. We enjoyed cooking in the very well equipped kitchen and had leisurely meals together around large family tables, in beautiful surroundings. The guardians were friendly, very helpful and on-hand if we needed anything. All in all, we had a wonderful experience which we would love to repeat in the future and we thoroughly recommend Les Arcis for a family holiday.

This beautifully maintained property is less than two hours outside of Paris. We never wanted to leave the grounds, there is everything to keep the kids happy: miles to run, pool, tennis, and playhouse. We adults lazed all day by the pool while the children run happy and wild on the enclosed grounds. The owner gave us wonderful recommendations for off the beaten path wine tastings. Make sure she shows you the mill across the stream where they make the best croissants and bread. The layout of the Chateau allows for several families to enjoy a vacation together, while maintaining peaceful, private moments. Best family vacation ever.
Nous avons passé une semaine très agréable aux Arcis. Le cadre, l'équipement, la piscine, tout est fait pour s'y sentir bien et pour tous! Nous remercions les gardiennes pour leur accueil très sympathique. Nous conseillons fortement ce château, ainsi que la visite et la dégustation des cépages avoisinants.
We hebben een week vakantie gevierd met 6 volwassen kinderen en 2 kleinkinderen. Het huis is van alle moderne gemakken voorzien, heeft een mooie en complete inrichting, maar heeft nog een authentieke uitstraling. De ruimte in en om het huis is gigantisch en er is volop vermaak voor iedereen: van een fijn zwembad met veel ligstoelen tot een kamer met tal van spelletjes en een goede tennisbaan. Een aanrader voor een familie vakantie. Wij gaan zeker nog eens terug.
We had a wonderful time at Chateau Les Arcis in Burgundy and will certainly be back. All details of both the house and the care of the guests are carefully thought through and attended to and we had the perfect combination of privacy and feeling attended to while there. The property is beautiful and the owners have wonderful taste. The grounds have a myriad of eating spots and activities including swimming pool, tennis, lovely walks and a feeling of privacy. The owners are gracious and eager to be sure you have the resources to make the most of your stay with their long experience and knowledge of the area. A special holiday to experience a French home of this level and explore the extensive area of Burgundy not far from Paris. A rare find indeed!
