Ettevaux Castle Estate

The history of Ettevaux castle

Zacharie Bertrand de Rivière, mayor of Larochemillay, bought the castle in July 1748. It then was passed to the de Galembert family in 1852 thanks to the wedding of Louise-Marie-Joséphine Bertrand de Rivière with the viscount Anne-Marie-Charles de Bodin de Galembert.
The Ettevaux estate belongs to the 6th generation of the de Galembert family, Charly and his 4 children. Together they decided to run a project revolving around these values in 2011:

“hospitality, regeneration, nature and peace.”

Charly started the repurposing project of the Ettevaux estate into touristic accommodation by building two huts on stilts. They were made entirely with the property’s wood. One is located on a small romantic pond and the other on a more remote fish-filled pond. He then set up two charming guest rooms in the renovated part of the castle and a typically burgundian small gite. Last but not least, he started renovationg the Ettevaux Stables gite with an environment-friendly process. It now can accommodate groups of up to 15 people and seminars.
