The green dovecote, historic buildings and herbalist's garden

On this web platform, you can book directly and at the best price at Colombier vert.

Come and recharge your batteries on the grounds of the former Château de Champlay, in Yonne in an eco-restored place with historic buildings and an herbalist's garden.

Less than two hours from Paris, between Sens and Auxerre, Colombier Vert is a haven of peace on the edge of a small village in Burgundy. Former farm of a castle which has now disappeared, this place steeped in history belongs to Régis and Véronique.
Lovers of heritage and gardens, they are committed to the restoration of buildings while respecting their history, ecology and the environment.

The buildings have been patiently restored with natural and ecological materials : wood wool or cork insulation, earth coatings, ocher paints, local wood.

There you will find a dovecote, barns, a house, a gîte and a garden on 4 hectares. This beautiful architectural heritagewas built during the time of Louis XIV . At the origins, the sun king offered, for good and loyal services, this castle to Louis Jules Bollé , advisor and quartermaster-general of the king who became "" Marquis de Champlay "". This valuable cartographer was surprised to discover the royal gift upon returning from a military campaign.

The Green Dovecote today is:

- a gîte to recharge your batteries or telework: a cozy nest ideal for enjoying a stay in the countryside as a couple or for concentrating on work in progress

- a home to work in an inspiring place: our rooms can be rented to organize an internship, a seminar or training (4 spaces with a sports practice room, a large friendly kitchen, a training room and a relaxation room)

- a 4 hectare garden for walking and discovering plants:a garden with several gardens, both a place of production of medicinal plants, an aromatic vegetable garden and a place of training, it is open to the public several times a year.

Le Colombier vert also welcomes groups for special events: seminars, team-building, plant training, garden visits, cultural events, sports and yoga retreats, green welcome and support sessions for entrepreneurs, etc.
