Rinck renovates France's Chateau de Saulon

Paris-based interior design company Rinck completed the renovation of Chateau de Saulon in Burgundy, France, with the opening of a barn with 10 additional guestrooms, bringing the property's total room count to 42.

The property also added a restaurant and the Orangery reception area.

At the first floor of the barn, Rinck created a large terrace lined with a chestnut railing made by a Companion of Duty. A terrace is also present on the ground floor overlooking the river and the gardens. After nine months of work, the barn now has 10 new Deluxe rooms and Junior Suite on two levels.

Beyond the 10 rooms in the barn, the property also has 24 rooms in the 17th century castle and eight in the pavilion. Public spaces include three large multifunctional conference rooms, including two rooms in the castle that directly open to a park. 

A bar, lounge, a glass roof, and a library complete the main building that is surrounded by the 66-acre park, an outdoor swimming pool, a pleasure garden, and an orangery. The vegetable garden was also created by Rinck.

The Orangery was built on the castle's former tennis court with the new building added to serve as a dedicated and exclusive event space. The building associates glass and steel in a timeless and elegant aesthetic. The large modular space has a surface area of more than 4,000 square feet that can accommodate more than 300 people, fitting in the castle's park and offering a panoramic view of the forest.
