Located at the top of the village of Bursins, in the heart of the La Côte area, between Geneva and Lausanne, the Château Le Rosey estate consists of 4.5 hectares of top-quality vineyard.
It offers incredible views over the grapevines, the Lake Léman and the Alps.
Probably erected in the 13th century in the form of a Savoyard square, partly set ablaze, wounded by wars, transformed, extended ? the castle was subjected to multiple transformations over the course of centuries.
It is a rare property which is ranked number 1 in the Swiss historical monument Inventory.
It was meticulously restored by its actual owner, in order to keep the most of its architectural substance intact.
The result is unique from a heritage perspective: a 21st century castle equipped with the latest technology and high-end living standards such as a spa, wellness area, indoor swimming pool, private banquet halls and wine cellars.
On the technical plan, the peripheral drainage and geothermal heat pump system (8 drillings for the main building) insure a unique and modern comfort.
On the architectural plan, past and present work beautifully well together throughout the overlapping centuries; wooden floors set on joists, double glazing blown glass windows and so many other added design details blend in perfect harmony with ribbed vault arches, cut stone staircases, Gothic fireplaces.
The castle has 25 rooms and 2'650sqm of net usable area distributed over 4 levels, which can easily be divided into 3 distinct apartments, totally independent.
The remainder of the property include a summer house converted into an office (with a mezzanine and deck), accommodations for personnel, an air-conditioned wine cellar, vat-rooms, a wine press, storage premises, a beautiful indoor swimming pool & spa, a farm building, annexes, an orchard, a vegetable garden, a water-spring and several locked-up garages.
