Château de la Resle, in the renowned winemaking region of Burgundy, is an ivy-wrapped manor house with the charm and personality of a well-loved private home. The six chic rooms and suites are lovingly tended to by Dutchmen Johan Bouman and Pieter Franssens, who invite guests to share their personal collection of contemporary and abstract art. The château, which sits on the edge of an 800-hectare hunting forest, is just a short drive from famous wine villages such as Chablis. But with a spa, a pool, and two hectares of landscaped gardens to meander through, there’s really no need to leave.
MADE BY ORIGINALS
Originally setting foot in France to expand the food company that they were running in the Netherlands, Johan Bouman and Pieter Franssens soon got distracted by the beauty of Burgundy and bought a château of their own. In addition to being astute businessmen, the Dutchmen are fervent collectors of art and design pieces, and they envisioned their newly acquired manor house as the perfect platform for displaying their private collections. After lovingly renovating the mansion and living in it, they decided it was simply too good not to share. Their six-bedroom home became Château de la Resle, an intimate gallery-like hotel that attracts art and design lovers from all over the world.
ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN
After sustaining extensive damage in a fire, the 17th-century building was restored in the 19th century and now houses Château de la Resle. Amid two hectares of landscaped gardens—complete with a swimming pool, orchards, and greenhouses—the hotel features the original staircases, a round tower and conical roof, and windows with wooden louvers that beautifully frame the surrounding vineyards and gardens. Fleshing out the building’s historic bones is a design characterized by modern simplicity and peppered with contemporary art, standout furnishings, and the occasional open fireplace.
