Château de Sothonod, built in the 10th century, is a spacious and comfortable family home offering 5 guest rooms in the heart of the Valromey.
The property includes a five-hectare park with a swimming pool.

The Chateau is spacious and quiet and, combining history with the comforts of modern life, will attract those seeking inspiration or a moment of relaxation and peace. The common rooms are large, high-ceilinged and tastefully decorated. Meals are taken in the large dining room: candlelit dinners in front of the medieval fireplace.

Most of the guest rooms are on the second floor. There, an incomparable view of the gardens, the swimming pool and the Valromey will welcome you every morning from the large, private and sunny green living room, with, behind a partition, its comfortable double bedroom.
Also on this floor: the pretty double room of ST ARTHAUD, as well as the large dormitory with its four bunk beds plus a double bed behind curtains. These rooms share the same shower room and toilet, or can use the bathroom on the floor below.

Possibly, in case of a group, a beautiful double room decorated in Moroccan ochre tones can be added on the first floor, and, just next door, a small blue room with two single beds. There are also three steps up to each of these two rooms, which face north and share a bathroom.

The chateau is one hour from Geneva and Lyon and 30 minutes from the TGV station at Bellegarde-sur-Valserine. The nearest shops are 10km away, in Champagne-en-Valromey. A car is therefore necessary to get around... and to see the magnificent natural sites all around!
