IMPRESSION of the Chateau

Surprising Group Stay

Hands-on! Immerse yourself and your group in French culture and traditions through local interactions. The castle not only offers beautiful accommodation but also a unique opportunity to truly connect with the natural surroundings and the local community. How about:


Local Culinary Experiences

Organize a culinary evening at the castle where chefs Hans and Jacqueline invite you to their table d’hôte with authentic French dishes. Think classics like coq au vin, boeuf bourguignon, and tarte tatin. Hans is also trained in Indian and Chinese cuisine, so feel free to ask him to take your taste buds on a journey through that. This is not only a tasty experience but also a chance to learn more about French, Indian, and Chinese cuisine and regional fresh specialties.


Wine Tastings

We can organize a wine tasting for you, introducing you to the delightful wines of the region. Our local sommelier can guide your group in discovering the different flavors and nuances of the wines, enriching the experience for wine enthusiasts.


Workshops with Artisans

We invite local artisans to give workshops for your group, where you can learn about traditional crafts. Or, get your hands dirty in estate maintenance. It’s an opportunity to learn from the experts and create something beautiful to take home.


Visit to Local Markets and Festivals

Explore local markets and festivals in the surrounding villages and towns. Here, you can taste fresh local products, see and buy handmade craft decorations, and immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere of French culture. Don’t forget about the flea markets! We’ve already met various collectors who facilitate a lively trade between various European countries.


Collaboration with Local Charities

Consider spending a day with your group volunteering for a local charity. This can range from helping maintain historical landmarks like the château itself or the developing food forest, to assisting in local charity projects. It’s a way for us, together with our guests, to give back to the community and create a meaningful and memorable experience.

A stay at Chateau de Bussolles offers not only luxury and comfort but also the opportunity to enjoy French culture and get to know the local community. Guaranteed, you’ll roll into your comfortable bed fully satisfied in the evening, once again appreciating how the château was ‘run’ in earlier times.

Adding these unique and authentic experiences to your holiday program will make the stay at the castle even more memorable for you and your group.
