Le Château

Château de Crassy

The enchantment starts the moment you pass the stone arch at the gated entrance.

The avenue of trees sheltering the driveway gives way to a view of 32 hectares of exquisitely maintained parkland, broken only by copse and forest, sweeping down magnificently across the plain to the lake and fountain. In a setting of such unspoiled serenity, it is difficult to appreciate that you are just five minutes‘ drive from a bustling spa town, twenty minutes from a major international airport and less than half an hour from Geneva, one of the world‘s most important political and cultural metropolises.

Straddling the border between France and Switzerland, the Château de Crassy is a magnificent 26-room Loire-style chateau, built of stone in the 17th and 18th centuries.

With brand-new interior furnishings and fittings in Middle Eastern style, it forms a cluster of buildings at the heart of the park with more recent additions in the form of the employees‘ quarters – the dépendance – and a large orangery.

Together, they comprise a supremely attractive property that offers a haven of peace, quiet and well- being to an owner looking to savor all the best that life, and living have to offer.

The Estate...

...and it’s Lake

The Main Building

Château de Crassy

The entrance to the main building is located on the north side of the house and, like the generally austere style of the exterior, provides no intimation of what lies within. For after ascending the flight of steps from the graveled forecourt, passing through the vestibule and into to the reception area, we enter another world and time.

The ground floor of the main building consists of six main rooms, including a small salon, living room, audiovisual room with concealed, state-of-the-art technology and a main reception room that looks out through a glass partition to the reception area. Beyond this is a Moroccan-style tea room, an exquisite hallway with an Islam- inspired mosaic fountain and a lavish dining room with seating for approximately 40 guests.

The entire facade from the dining room at the southernmost corner to the main reception room at the other end opens up onto a generously sized terrace with sweeping panoramic views of the grounds: the ideal venue, weather permitting, for al fresco receptions, cocktails and even dining.

Assuring your guests of smooth, professional service, the ground floor also features a fully equipped preparation room, where the finishing touches can be put to food from the basement kitchen before it is served.

Orangery & Pool

Château de Crassy

If the main and secondary houses offer your guests private accommodation in keeping with your high standards of hospitality, the orangery is the ideal venue for all your social entertaining. Situated just a few meters from the two residential buildings, the orangery is an L-shaped structure that opens up into two wings from the main entrance.

The left wing comprises three large, fully furnished reception rooms, each complete in itself but entirely open to convey the sense of space. Appointed with marble floors, exquisite carpets, ornate ceiling frescoes and superb crystal chandeliers, they provide direct access to the manicured lawns and pool in the main outer area.

Branching off to the right as we enter are the bar and various relaxation areas together with the sauna, hammam, a room for fitness and luxuriously fitted shower and bathrooms. As in all the other buildings, there are plentiful wardrobe, cloakroom and toilet facilities.

An annexe to the orangery at the bottom end of the swimming pool, idea for a further bar or refreshment area to serve pool users, can still be equipped to the new owner‘s specifications.

The Dependence / Guest House:


Formerly the site of the stables – the remnants of which are attractively preserved at the back of the building – the guest house can be utilized for a variety of purposes, just as you prefer.

Featuring several large reception rooms, dining room, conservatory, various multi-purpose annexes and two fully equipped kitchens on the ground floor, it boasts seven large en-suite bedrooms on the first and attic floors, each with its own salon.

The layout of the house is flexible and could even be arranged to accommodate two separate families or groups of guests, each with their own facilities.

The superb stone-built residence building has extensive lawns on all sides and is encircled by trees.

It is discreetly located a few steps away from the main residence, giving you invaluable privacy from your guests or staff at all times
