a treasured inheritance

Dominique Delalande and Henk Lokhorst call Amsterdam home but spend holidays in a cottage in a small village located in the Burgundy region of France. Henk is the decorator, combining heirlooms and antiques with elegant upholstery and brocante finds. And the home already held plenty of treasures. When Dominique’s mother moved here permanently many years ago, he says, “She brought the complete contents of her Paris household with her.” The house was packed with furniture, Henk says: “Copperware, crockery, paintings—wherever you looked, there was something standing or hanging on racks, shelves, in benches, and dressers.” When Dominique returned to the cottage, its décor, furnishings, sixties-era carpet, and even scents, awakened his memories. Even so, the clutter had to be cleared out, and antiques dealers were invited to the home. Not only were…

the light within: a vintner’s cottage

Floral designer Ita Bourcier remembers the moment, more than thirty years ago, when she spotted the cottage of her dreams in Auxerre, a capital city in the Burgundy region. Traversing the French countryside to search for a new home had become a weekly ritual for the Netherlands native and her husband. One day, their realtor had not selected any listings but encouraged the pair to peruse his files. A single image immediately captured Ita’s imagination. “There it was: a photo of this wonderful house, surrounded by lots of trees and looking so pretty,” she recalls. Established circa 1880, when winemaking was prevalent in the area, the estate included wine cellars, horse stables, gardens, and a farmhouse brimming with charm. Despite Ita’s instant connection to the property, several obstacles stood in the way…

preserving past grandeur

Ten years ago, Paris natives Marie-Claude and Michel de Beyris decided to leave the bustling pace of the City of Light for the tranquil beauty of Nièvre, a rural area of France’s Burgundy region. Because the couple is fond of old houses and of horses, their agent arranged a viewing at an eighteenth-century hunter’s pavilion–turned–manor house, complete with stables and a breathtaking view of the gently rolling landscape. The setting alone was enough to command the attention of Marie-Claude and Michel. But when they stepped inside the château and glimpsed the light-filled interiors, where many of the original features have been preserved, they knew they had found their new home. Its peaceful ambiance outweighed the amount of work that would need to be done to restore the structure’s indisputable charm. Fortunately,…

a noble castle, a new life

American/Dutch couple Jitske and Matthew Poventud arrived in France with their three young children in pursuit of a dream. They wanted to begin a new life that would allow them to spend more time together in a place of serenity and unspoiled beauty. After nine months of searching for a home, they discovered aerial photos of Château de Digoine, a magnificent medieval estate in the Burgundy region that had been neglected since World War II. The pair soon found themselves standing in utter surprise at the centuries-old gate marking the entrance. Jitske and Matthew describe a rainy introductory tour of the grounds, during which they were guided by flashlights. Despite the less-than-ideal conditions, they could see something grand. “It was such a beautiful, noble building,” Matthew says. That afternoon, the family became the…

rhapsody in blue

Eighteen years ago, when newly retired Albert Roek was offered a job as property manager for a friend’s small castle in central France, he and his wife, Clementine, were thrilled with the chance to live in the country they had long admired. While looking for suitable housing near the château, they stumbled upon a farmhouse that had been uninhabited for more than forty years. The early nineteenth-century stone structure was in fairly good shape—despite damage from a leaky roof—and a cottage next door served as living quarters while the couple made necessary repairs. “There was no electricity and no plumbing system, so that kept us busy in the first months,” explains Clementine. “It was a bit like camping, but we didn’t mind at all. We both loved to be busy creating…
