Contiki’s iconic French Chateau is up for sale
Global leaders in youth travel, Contiki, announced its famous Chateau de Cruix in France’s Beaujolais wine region has been placed on the market.
The sprawling 16th century mansion has been visited by travellers since 1977 and features 25 bedrooms, five bathrooms, a secret party cave, hectares of land overlooking wineries and a large outdoor pool. It’s in immaculate condition with many of the original features remaining or lovingly restored. And all this grandeur can be yours (well if you’re fortunate enough to have a spare few million lying around).
A statement from Tim Lewis, our Europe Operations Managing Director, explains the reason for the sale: “Today we announce the sale of our French Chateau, Chateau de Cruix. It is not a decision we have taken lightly and can understand how anyone who has stayed at the property will feel hearing this. We would like to thank everyone who made it such a special place.
