The Château du Feÿ was first built to serve as a second home for one of Louis XVII’s councillors. Having welcomed both Ninon de Lenclos, a French courtesan and freethinker, and Saint-Vincent de Paul, this 17th century castle is classified as a Historical Monument. It is just steps away from Joigny, a city renowned for its gastronomy, wines and architecture (19 listed monuments). It is located within a hundred acre forest and overlooks the Yonne valley, offering a breathtaking view of the Jovinian. During the last thirty years, the British author and culinary historian Anne Willan organized cooking classes with renowned chefs in the château. By opening the doors of this monument to the public for the very first time, the domain’s recent acquisition in January 2017 and the organization of Feÿ-Rencontres d’arts both participate in the revitalization of this rural French region.
