Location

The property is situated in open countryside 5 minutes from Chalon-sur-Saône in Southern Burgundy. All amenities including supermarkets, restaurants and café bars in Chalon and nearby surrounding villages.

Museum of Photography - Chalon-sur-Saône (5 km);

It is at Chalon-sur-Saône that Nicéphore Niepce, inventor of photography, was born. Chalon has dedicated a museum to him and the art he invented. In a beautiful house along the banks of the Saône, a comprehensive collection of cameras is displayed. Throughout the visit, discover the different photographic techniques used to reproduce reality on paper. There are some wonderful temporary photographic exhibitions held here.

Hospices de Beaune - Beaune (37 km).

Famous for their auction of wines each year in November, the Hospices de Beaune is, with its marvellous varnished coloured tile roof, one of the most famous sites to visit in Burgundy. Apart from its own history which is fascinating, the Hospices de Beaune also houses some very fine paintings with amongst others 'The last Jugement' by Roger van der Weyden, the leader of religious painting in the 15th century.

Château de Couches - Couches (32 km).

Clinging to its rock, the Château de Couches soars up amidst the green and rolling landscape of the vineyards of the 'Côte Chalonnaise'. Access is by a drawbridge that stands as witness to the defensive role that the château had in by-gone days. Today it is possible to visit the chapel, the prison and the square dungeon that goes back to the 12th century.

Château de Cormatin - Cormatin (42 km).

Built in the 17th century on the remains of a 13th century castle, the Château de Cormatin is without a doubt one of the most elegant châteaux in Burgundy. Its truly beautiful gardens, which include a maze, were highly appreciated notably by François Mitterand and Alphonse de Lamartine. In the summer the château holds a festival in its theatre called 'Rendez-vous de Cormatin'.

The Hérisson Falls - Jura (90 km).

Two streams join to make a series of waterfalls, each one more beautiful than the last. 31 falls, some over 60 meters high, go to make up the 'Cascades du Hérisson'. A waymarked footpath of 3.7 km allows you to see them all.

Cluny Abbey - Cluny (56 km).

On the eve of the second millenium Burgundy was a region of high spiritual importance due to Cluny Abbey. This Benedictine abbey, built in the 10th century, was the centre of the religious world and the church was no less than the largest in the Christian world! Destroyed during the Revolution, the abbey lives today only through its impressive remains and an archeological museum that allows visitors to imagine what it was like in its glorious past.

Chalon dans la Rue - Chalon-sur-Saône (5 km).

Each year, during the 3rd weekend in July (from the Thursday evening until Sunday evening), the streets of Chalon-sur-Saône are transformed into the stage of a multitude of live performances (jugglers, plays, concerts, acrobats, circus acts etc.) during the biggest festival of street theatre in France.

Fun Park des Combes - le Creusot (45 km).

Laid out around a disused railway line, the Parc des Combes offers visitors a whole range of activities in a natural setting covering 70 hectares. According to your taste and whim, whether you prefer a spine chillling ride on the big dipper or if you prefer the relaxing roll of an old steam engine, this Park has something for everyone : a summer toboggan run, an aerial runway, a steam train, fairground rides etc.

Green Way - Chalon-sur-Saône (4 km).

From Chalon-sur-Saône to Charnay-les-Macon tens of kilometres of old railway track have been converted into a cycle track. Surrounded by rolling landscapes, alternating between vineyards and forest, this flat (or almost!) Green Way, lends itself perfectly to cycling or rollerblading or simply walking! The track goes through several attractive villages and you can also admire sites such as Cluny and Cormatin from it.

Acrogivry - Givry (15 km).

At Givry, 6 hectares of oak trees are reserved for adventure in the tree tops! More than 18 circuits and 150 aerial games have been created for visitors from young children to really tough adventurers! Those who like a thrill won't be disappointed by the 250 meter aerial runway!

Eric and Caroline Moirand, Paris
Une semaine, cela peut être très long ou bien très court... Nous l'avons, quand à nous, trouvée vraiment trop courte! Entourés de nos enfants et petits-enfants, nous avons, grâce à Christophe et toutes ses équipes associées à notre vie quotidienne, passé un délicieux séjour au Château de Lans. C'est également grâce à lui qu'entre les délicieux repas préparés par Patrick et Thomas nous avons pu découvrir quelques flacons précieux qui ont enchantés notre palais et avec lesquels nous repartons fièrement. Nous avons découvert ce Château du bonheur et n'aspirons maintenant plus qu'à y revenir pour retrouver ces moments de plaisirs...Un immense merci à tous pour votre accueil, votre écoute et votre amitié. On espère à bientôt.

Ce fût une semaine placée sous le signe de Saint Exupéry et celà grâce à la famille Moirand (nos hotes) mais également à Christophe et à ses nombreuses bonnes idées! Quel bel endroit! Que de gens sympas, pros et avec ce supplément d'âme qui caractérise la famille Moirand and Christophe. Merci également aux Chefs Patrick et Thomas qui ont mis les points sur les "i" de tous nos repas. Pour tout cela un grand merci du fond du coeur.

Un site merveilleux, un temps alterné de soleil et nuages très agréable pour la température. Nous avons profité de la piscine tous les jours. Aujourd'hui il pleut, belle image de notre humeur maussade au moment de repartir. Quel calme. Nous avons passé de vraies vacances avec toute la famille!! PS: Nous avons sauvé deux écureuils!

Richard Fraser and family, Canada
Our extended family of eleven, including our two grand children, had a wonderful time in this lovely château. Thanks for hosting us in your home and for introducing us to an experience we will not forget in Burgundy. We really enjoyed the wine/bike tour with Florian. Our grandchildren made it the whole 26kms! Your wine tasting was both informative and delicious. Chef Toma's dinner was another highlight. We appreciated your warm hospitality. Merci!

Edmund Fowler, England
A second week for the second half of the family and equally successful. I can particularly remember warm evenings in the terrace listening to the wildlife. Many thanks for the usual hospitality and the excellent choices of wines to complement another fantastic diner. Will look forward to a return to Burgundy in the near future.

Balardi's and Klimzcak's, USA.
We had our first family vacation in 14 years at Château Chalons. This was an amazing location to do this. The rooms and bathrooms, the decor, the large kitchen and dining room...and of course the grounds. We all enjoyed the pool, the trampoline and even apples from the garden. We loved exploring wine country. The chef at Château Chalons was a wonderful night for the entire group. In a word, it was a magical week. We hope to come back.

Les canadiens, Vancouver
Merci pour une bonne semaine de vacances! We had a spectacular time at Château Chalons. We felt like we stayed at a very private and exclusive hotel! The rooms and amenities were beautiful. We had a great week of wine, great food, and amazing baked goods. Lots of adventure and activities for kids! The wine tasting with you was an experience of a lifetime! The activities you recommended were truly special, in particular the bicycle wine tour that was child friendly. We look forward to another visit! Vive la France! Ps: We loved Chester (the cat).

Lovely, well equipped Château Chalons, tastefully furnished and ideal for family gatherings or groups of friends. One week was not enough to discover all that the area has to offer. We hope to return sometime in the future.

J and R Hellings, Belgium
We stayed one week in this Château Chalons and were very excited with the setting, the pool (heated in april), the bikes, the fitness room, all the lovely decorated bedrooms, the warm welcome from the owner, the lovely garden. This is a perfect place to have a great family party. It suits perfectly 14 people.

I wanted to drop you a quick email to feedback our stay at Château Chalons. Thank you for allowing us to rent your fantastic and beautiful Château, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and had an absolutely amazing time in Burgundy. The property is wonderful, it couldn’t have been more perfect. The use of the pool in late October was unexpected and a real treat! Thank you to you and your team.

Sandy and David, UK
We had a wonderful holiday celebrating our retirement with all our family (3 sons, 3 daughters-in-law, and grand children). Château Chalons has exceeded all our expectations, the pool and trampoline has been such a success with the children. We will take home many fond memories of this special holiday.

A and P Sanders, UK
We have all enjoyed an excellent week at Château Chalons. Lovely bedrooms and facilities and wonderful base for exploring the Burgundy countryside. Many Thanks!

The Opdeweegh family. Florida, USA
We live in Miami, Florida and spent a fantastic week in Château Chalons. The château has been beautifully renovated and very tastefully decorated. It offers a level of luxury that is rarely seen when you rent luxury real estate in France or Italy. The château caters to the most demanding travelers and allows its visitors to develop a true sense of Burgundy. The owners of the château are gracious hosts who are personally committed to guarantee a consistent level of service. For families with children – like ours – a stay at the château offers an ideal occasion for real family time in an intimate and beautiful setting. We will most certainly go back next year.
