Welcome to the Château de Missery

“As always, peace and tranquillity with superb hospitality!”
- Sue Young


The Château de Missery is an authentic 18th century moated Louis XV château with 14th century medieval towers, set in quiet hilly Burgundian countryside, some 40 miles west of Dijon. It is ideal for house parties, family holidays, special birthdays & anniversaries, and as a base for discovering this beautiful and unspoiled region, renowned for its gastronomy, wines and history.

Holiday at Missery: a Special House Indeed

Welcome to the Château de Missery, the gem of Burgundy and the listed 18th Century family home of Patricia and Philip Hawkes!

Residing in its own elegant Burgundian setting with an interior full of authentic, unspoilt period decoration, the Château de Missery is the perfect place for a house party, holiday or family celebration; or a special retreat in which to unwind and relax, and enjoy some quality time with family and friends. 

After 40 years at Missery, we know the area and its residents incredibly well, and can provide you with comprehensive information so that you can get out and about and explore the rich cultural heritage of Burgundy, whether it be a day of heady wine tasting on the Côte de Beaune, cycling off into the idyllic Burgundian countryside laying right before you, or messing about in boats on the beautiful lakes of the Morvan National Park.

Elegant Wines, Seasonal Dining & Blissful Bedrooms

For those quiet days and peaceful summer evenings back at the Château, enjoy our mix of regional, seasonal, and fresh French and English cuisine accompanied by a glass of wine, play a family game in the salon, or take a stroll around the moat, gazing at the sky full of stars. Finally, retreat to your bedroom, a refuge of bliss and cotton linens, where you can let your soul and body come to a rest.
