Cloistered behind a pair of ornate iron gates is the exquisite and fairy tale-like Château André Ziltener. Located among the lush vineyards of Burgundy in France, this historic destination, originally erected centuries ago as a hunting lodge for the Burgundy Parliament, features a pair of residential-style retreats along with suites and elegantly-appointed rooms. Past centuries collide with modern day élan amid traditional French surroundings. The accommodations, tucked behind romantic gables, are striking with ornate fireplaces, windows draped in billowy fabrics, baths cloaked in marble and soaring ceilings above.
Enjoy breakfast in the magnificent dining room or at one of the romantic courtyard tables, where you can sup on flaky croissants and drink bold lattes from traditional bowls. The hotel's wine bar is an exceptional culinary destination for dinner and the perfect spot for sampling regional vintages. Guests are also privy to guided tours of the wine museum, leading to the bowels of the chateau's cellars where you will taste an array of grand crus. Take an afternoon to explore vineyard-shrouded Chambolle-Musigny. This enchanting village features a labyrinth of winding streets and is known for its plump and near-perfect pinot noir grape. The town excels in wine-making with nearly two-dozen Premier Cru vineyards, including delightful tasting rooms that allow you to swill and sample the best of the best.
