« The view from the terraces is superb.
We descended by an old staircase to an old terraced garden, which steeply overhung the lake, which was so beautiful and so calm.
The reflection of the mountains was so intense that it gave the impression that it was an extension of the view.»

Queen Victoria

The Château de Bourdeau is situated on the undeveloped bank of Lake le Bourget, France’s biggest natural lake, a few cable lengths from The Abbaye de Hautecombe where the Kings of Italy are buried. The lake has always been an inspiration to our greatest poets and authors including Honoré de Balzac and George Sand.
As for poetry, the name of Lamartine  is indissociable from this place and the cave that bears his name has seen its share of love affairs. This unique place was visited by Queen Victoria, Maupassant, Jean Gabin…

From all its bedrooms and its South-facing terrace, the Château enjoys an outstanding view over the lake, the Belledonnes, Mont Granier: the gateway to the Chartreuse Massif.
The Château de Bourdeau   also has a library which features a collection of 47 original photographic portraits of our greatest actors and actresses posing in their theatre dressing rooms and with their dedications.
In the large drawing room, you can also admire a very rare drawing by Lamartine of the Abbaye de Hautecombe as well as a canvas by J. Poignant dating from the beginning of the 20th Century showing the château.

The Château de Bourdeau is just an hour drive from Lyon, 50 min from Geneva, 30 min from Annecy and 15 min from Aix-les-Bains and Chambery.

«Nowhere will you encounter a finer harmony between water, sky, mountains and land.»
