Welcome to the magical Château Gérard

The origins of this 10 bedroom castle stretch back to around 1000 AD. It has protected people from persecution, and it was dismantled by Henry the IVth. It was restored in the 14th and 17th centuries. The castle stood proud through vast slabs of history: the dark ages, Joan of Arc, Shakespeare, and the Renaissance. More recently it was the home to actress Annabel Buffet - wife of the great artist Bernard Buffet.  

We are excited to be able to share the castle and all of its modern comforts with you and are certain that you will feel the same magic in its walls that we do.

Château Gérard is owned and loved by Leanne and Zephyr. What started as a dream and a chance sighting in a estate agent’s window in Paris evolved to what you see now. Leanne and Zephyr see themselves as custodians, like every guest who experiences the castle’s beauty and shares its magic with friends and loved ones.


Château Gérard is lovingly managed by BourgogneMaison who helped to make the dream possible.
