A beautiful 16th-century building. The calm and the beauty of the Nivernaise countryside. Burgundy cuisine. Welcome to Sergei and Katia Kuznetsov's hotel, a charming hotel in Burgundy.
“Live the life of luxury, today.”
A love story. This is what unites Sergei, Katia and France. The couple, originally from Russia, settled in the country of Molière back in 2013. Four years later, they used their savings to buy Château le Sallay, The Originals Relais (Saincaire-Meauce), in this region of Burgundy that they love, with the stated objective of gaining regional, national and international renown for their 4-star hotel. It is clear that the premises has many advantages: a location close to the legendary Nevers-Magny-Cours racing circuit, a 4-hectare green setting, a historic building which was formerly a summer residence of the Dukes of Nevers, rooms with sophisticated charm, a restaurant featuring gourmet flavours and many event rooms which can hold private and professional events in a beautiful and peaceful setting. In their chateau hotel, Sergei and Katia have also applied an eco-responsible approach: horses have replaced lawnmowers for maintaining the undergrowth, the restaurant offers only one menu so as to limit over-consumption and the products mainly come from local producers.
Château le Sallay, The Originals Relais 11 rooms and suites all have their individual style. Each puts its own twist on the major styles of decorative arts with a touch of modernity. Spacious, elegant and comfortable, the rooms all provide quality services and comfort for peaceful nights. The chateau has family suites if you are coming with children. Handicapped guests will also find accommodation to meet their needs.
With its beautiful sculpted fireplace and many wooden decorations, the hotel’s restaurant is a warm and friendly setting. You can choose to sit outside on the terrace near the swimming pool. A pleasant setting to get the day off to a good start after helping yourself to the breakfast buffet. The restaurant’s kitchen also uses local products which the chef turns into a delicious and unique gourmet menu served every evening.
Every evening at Château le Sallay, The Originals Relais the restaurant’s chef offers a unique menu combining flavours and creativity in 4 courses (appetiser, starter, main course, dessert).
