Among the many surprises that the Château d'Ainay-le-Vieil has in store for you for the 2020 season, a new offer of accommodation so that you can spend the night at the château.
The programme to start this project includes a first guest room and a first gîte, the work on which is progressing rapidly and will be available from 1 April 2020.
The Chamber of Ramparts
The first guest room, named Chambre des Remparts, is, as its name suggests, housed in one of the nine towers of the ramparts. It overlooks the high courtyard of the castle with a superb view of the châtelet, the Renaissance façade and the feudal main building. The duplex layout with a living room on the ground floor and a bedroom on the first floor will allow everyone, for a night, a weekend or more, to enjoy the life of a castle.
The Gîte de la Conciergerie
The first gîte, called Gîte de la Conciergerie, is located in a 19th century house built between 1850 and 1860. Situated at the entrance to the park, it served as a caretaker's cottage, a reception area for tourists and a shop. Today, restored to its original configuration, it is once again a charming residence ideal for a family or a group of friends wishing to spend some time in the countryside in the heart of a remarkable garden. Benefiting from an enclosed garden and an outbuilding for outdoor lunches and dinners, it offers a kitchen-dining room, a living room that can be converted into a bedroom and two double bedrooms.
Hosting its visitors and tourists is a great first for the Château d'Ainay-le-Vieil. This is a long-term project that will be expanded from year to year. The programme includes five guest rooms and three gîtes in total.
