English text for the hotel Built in only a few years, this castle constitutes one of the most beautiful copies of Louis XIII architecture. It is said that Eiffel and Garnier were the architects. Registered as an Historic Building, the elegant Château de Villersexel is entirely furnished in the style of that period. Lafayette lived in this Historic Chateau.

This is a private Château whose actual owners' family dates back from the time of Charlemagne. Corinne and Jean-Pierre Potet (he doesn't like to be called Baron ... but he really owns the title!) are living there with their two children. This is their home and they will definitely enjoy to receive you as paying guests. They are all absolutely charming and will do their utmost to make your stay there unforgettable.

Year after year they renovate and refurbish the bedrooms whose names are steeped in History such as : Empire, Honneur, Rotonde and Montebello. The original Château was destroyed by fire in 1871 and the rebuilt one now houses a fabulous museum you can visit and admire as have done De Gaulle and Churchill who stayed here for a while.

By previous arrangement meals are served in the friendly table d'hôtes style, with a healthy cuisine prepared in the family kitchen.

This Chateau offers a unique venue for all types of events, including weddings, fashion shows and receptions. Meeting rooms (up to 100 people) can host your training courses, seminars or conferences and Villersexel is also an ideal place for shooting films. (Lunches or Diners for groups can be arranged in superb vaulted cellars).

Construit en quelques années, ce château présente l'une des plus belles copies du style Louis XIII. On dit que Eiffel et Garnier en ont été les architectes. Inscrit à l'inventaire des Monuments Historiques et entièrement meublé à l'identique de ce qu'il était il y a un siècle, le Château de Villersexel constitue un Photo of Library patrimoine d'exception qui nous rappelle que notre présent n'est jamais que l'aboutissement de notre passé.

Ce fabuleux Château privé est la maison de Corinne et Jean-Pierre Potet qui vous recevront avec grande gentillesse et en parfaite simplicité. Le confort y est amélioré de jour en jour et vous pourrez habiter des chambres aux noms chargés d'histoire comme : Empire, Honneur, Rotonde ou Montebello.

L'étonnant musée ainsi que le glorieux passé mouvementé du Château vous seront admirablement contés par Jean-Pierre Potet dont les talents de narrateur vous séduiront tout autant que son érudition et sa noblesse de coeur. Quant à son titre de Baron dont il refuse de faire étât, sachez qu'il peut fort aisèment ne pas s'en prévaloir tant sa civilité est naturelle.

Sur accord et réservation préalables, la table d'hôtes vous permettra de déguster une excellente cuisine familiale dans une agréable ambiance conviviale.

Villersexel offre un cadre unique pour l'organisation de diverses manifestations de prestige (mariages, défilés de mode, réceptions..) et se trouve être un lieu idéal pour le tournage de films. Des salles de travail, jusqu'à 100 personnes, permettent à cet univers étonnant d'accueillir vos stages, séminaires ou conférences. (Toutes possibilités de restauration pour groupes dans de superbes caves voûtées).
