Five centuries of history...

The château de la Berchère reflects the history of France and Burgundy.  Built as a fortress against medieval invasions, i t was purchased in 1463 by Jean Le Goux of Nuits-Saint-Georges who was ennobled by Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy, and added « de la Berchère » to his name.  Le Goux family members played prominent  roles in the judiciary and the Parliament of Burgundy.  Rich ornementation was added to the château in the 16th and 17th centuries.

Evolution

In December 1738 the Joly de Bevy family took over the property, but at the end of the 18th century, in the wake of the French Revolution, the château and its grounds were confiscated and sold as State property.  The Joly de Bevy family recovered part of the property in the early 19th century , but much hardship followed.
One of the battles of the 1870-71 Franco-Prussian War was fought closeby and compensation for material damage was awarded the then-owner, Nicolas René Quirot de Poligny.  Purchased in the early 1920’s by Henri Massart of Paris and transformed at that time into a hotel, the château suffered further damage due to German occupation in WWII, then when it served as housing for French and American troops at the Liberation.  
In the 1980’s Jean-Claude Massart began the restoration and rehabilitation of the château as a hotel.  In December 2015 Jocelyne and Bernard Dugat took over ownership of the château.  With a passion for history and for Burgundy’s rich cultural heritage, they will be delighted to have you discover their beautiful château.
