DescriptionAn idyllic location and an incredible vista Château Le Rosey sits in the village of Bursins, in the heart of the La Côte region, in one of the most beautiful villages in Switzerland. Near Lake Léman, internationally renowned clinics and schools, and two magnificent golf courses, this exquisite estate is halfway from Geneva to Lausanne ( only twenty minutes from the international Geneva Cointrin Airport ) and offers a breath-taking view out over the Alps, Mont Blanc, Lake Geneva, and wine country stretching all the way out to Geneva and it’s Jet d’Eau. The Château Le Rosey estate is overlooked by four and a half hectares of vines, sloping gently away to the woody foothills of the Jura. Probably first built in the 13th century as a « Carré Savoyard », the château has survived fires, wars, expansions and other transformations over the centuries. It was completely renovated
by its current owner, restoring a sense of unity to the estate. After seven years of painstaking restoration, the château is now a warm and cosy place to live, fitted and ecorated with taste and sophistication, using the finest materials. The past and the present come together beautifully in the château’s historic walls, combining ribbed arches, sculpted stone staircases, Gothic fireplaces, and contemporary architecture. Reunited with its orchard and kitchen garden, it has returned to its mediaeval roots as a refuge and haven of peace and tranquillity overlooking Lake Geneva.
