In the heart of Burgundy

The greatest luxury a hotel can offer is its charm, its warm welcome and its ambience...

Burgundy is a destination highly recommended, whether for a brief getaway or for spending several memorable days on holiday, and the Côte Saint Jacques is truly the ideal place to stay.

The luxury of our 4-star hotel, located at the gateway to Burgundy, has several facets: the charm of its rooms and its deluxe suites, the warm welcome, the fine cuisine of Jean-Michel Lorain, its ambience, its indoor pool and its exceptional spa.
Here, you will take time to enjoy life and let yourself be pampered by an entire team at your every beck and call.

Right near the Côte Saint Jacques, you will be able to stroll about the heart of the old city of Joigny, classified as a City of Art and History, with its own special enchantment. You may visit the Bailly house, the Saint-Jean and Saint Thibault churches, or the Gondi castle, which Jean-Michel Lorain is so fond of.

In a region with a wealth of history, you may take advantage of your stay to visit Auxerre, the city of Cadet Roussell and the poet Marie Noël, the wood-panelled houses of the old city that line its splendid cobblestone streets, the Saint-Étienne cathedral and Saint-Germain Abbey, decorated with the oldest frescos recorded to date in France.

To the North of Joigny and equidistant from Auxerre, you may visit Sens, the second largest city in the department, its Saint Étienne cathedral, the first Gothic cathedral in France, with its museum of religious treasures, or the Mill Park in Tan, etc.

Between tours of the region, the enchantment of our Relais et Châteaux in the heart of Burgundy, along with its deluxe services (gastronomic restaurant, spa, indoor pool, etc.) will allow you to rest in the lap of luxury. You may visit Vézelay, or the medieval castle of Bazoches, the historic residence of the Marshall of Vauban, or the Laduz Folk Arts Museum: go back in time and delve into the history of Burgundy. And one should not overlook the nearby vineyards of Irancy and Chablis, just a few kilometres from Joigny.

To finish your visit to Burgundy in grand style, after having tried our 3-star restaurant, give in to the temptation of the supreme luxury: the simplicity of a solitary walk along the banks of the Yonne, or on board our private boat, which is available to guests at the Côte Saint Jacques.

In our section on Tourism and Culture, you will find detailed itineraries and circuits in Burgundy, so that you can properly plan your stay at our enchanting establishment.
