Château Mont Joly - A charming hotel****

Charm, elegance, character, space… 

Welcome to Château du Mont Joly****, a charming hotel owned by Catherine and Romuald Fassenet.
A beautiful and large building, completely renovated, surrounded by a magnificent leafy park above the village of Sampans in Jura, and on the edge of the Côte d’Or.
The warm and attentive service. Modern décor in a historic setting: large windows, a large oak staircase to access the rooms, a dining room which overlooks the park and the kitchens, a breakfast room in the former château kitchen, lounges on the ground floor, a cellar adorned with blue and pink stones... Complete calm and comfort in an unusual setting.

History of the site

The Château du Mont Joly**** combines history, modernity and precious materials in perfect harmony.
With a pink façade and Italian-style columns, this building was built in the 18th century by a wealthy lawyer from Dole before being owned for many years by a large Franche-Comté family.
Falling into ruin, it was completely renovated and restored in the late 1990s.
Since 2007, Catherine and Romuald Fassenet have breathed a warm and endearing spirit into this wonderful hotel.
