CHATEAU DE ROCHECOTTE
– René Boylesve
The 18th century, Louis XVI-style Château de Rochecotte stands in muted, sophisticated elegance. It gracefully overlooks the Loire valley, in perfect proximity to Bourgeil’s vineyards. Its Baroque grandeur, superimposed terraces and intimate guestrooms have impressed many throughout the years.
Indeed, the château enjoys a legacy of aristocratic owners and high-society visitors, whose many sojourns cemented its reputation as a favorite amongst those in the know. As you enter this Baroque manor you’ll be in the company of the many princes, duchesses and gentry of history.
