Chateau de Cormatin - Bourgogne, France
Located between Tournus and Cluny, in the heart of southern Burgundy, the Chateau de Cormatin was built by the Marquises of Huxelles in the early seventeenth century.
This majestic 17th-century chateau features lavishly gilded rooms, extensive tended gardens and even a moat.
An important stop on the Castles of Southern Burgundy tourist route, Cormatin offers something for everyone.
Long abandoned, the castle has been restored with a loving regard for authenticity. Art lovers will especially appreciate the belle epoque interiors of the ornamental apartments.
