Combine your stay in Burgundy with a selection of our other French hotels for a varied and enjoyable cultural tour.

    Client Testimonial:
    "We've stayed here several times before and it's a lovely property and super handy location. Our Room has tasteful French 'country house' decor and a nice view over the garden. We used the excellent and new hotel bikes to tour the vineyards, and had a very agreeable couple of hours. An excellent recommendation - do pass it on to your other clients." - Mrs B.

    Our opinion

    Château de Gilly in the Burgundy region is excellent for charm and comfort.

    Hotel description

    The Château de Gilly is a former residence of the Priors of Cîteaux; still moated and very much palatial in ambience, it offers high standards of accommodation and cuisine and is beautifully situated at the heart of the Burgundy vineyards. The elegant, vaulted restaurant ‘Le Clos Prieur’ was once the palace cellar and is just the place to enjoy a gourmet dinner accompanied by fine local wines. ‘Coté Terroirs’ a new restaurant, offers local specialities. Breakfast is served in the restored historic Pierre de Nivelle room and musical soirées are held regularly in the Tapestry room. The 48 bedrooms have been refurbished to offer modern comforts whilst retaining their individuality and fine architectural features. To the front of the hotel are remarkable formal French-style gardens. The hotel features an outdoor heated swimming pool.
