Introduction

Château Saône


Beautifully restored château set amongst the Southern Burgundy vineyards in 4,000 m² of private grounds with lovely, far-reaching views over the surrounding countryside.

The château has been fully renovated leaving many original features and offers over 600 m² of very high quality living accommodation on 4 floors. 8 bedrooms including two master suites. All bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms.

Living and dining room, fully equipped kitchen. Games room with pool table and PlayStation 3. Wi-Fi internet.
Flat-screen TV's with Blu-Ray DVD.
Further games room with table football.

Fully-equipped gym and sauna and steam bath.

A courtyard closed by a gate allows 4 or 5 cars to park in front of the château. Behind the château the terraced garden looks across to the pool area and the vineyards beyond.

Private, heated pool 10m x 5m with sun terrace and pool-side summer kitchen.

A stone stairway, hidden amongst fig trees, gives access to the bottom of the garden with fruit trees and borders of wild lavender.

The 'Haussman' design gives the château an unusual style for the area. The façade is richly decorated with moldings and sculptures, and the central round tower, which serves as a winter garden, adds a romantic touch.

All the original features have been conserved in the lounge, dining room and bedrooms: the wooden floors, the moulded ceilings and wood paneling as well as the fireplaces, doors and windows.

Location

Chalon-sur-Saône


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 meters aerial runway!

Feedback from previous guests

Bonjour Christophe,
We have had such a wonderful time in France​. We spent the last 6 days cycling through Normandy and Brittany viewing the sites and meeting many very nice people. Throughout we have shared stories of our stay at Chateau Mercurey. The food and wine was delicious and delightful and relaxation by the pool and in the game room made our stay very enjoyable. And your wine tasting tour was fabulous. Merci beaucoup. We leave for the United States today but France will remain in our hearts as such a wonderful place. Thank you for helping us have such a wonderful visit.
Au Revoir.

Jim and Sharon Ware, US.




It was the first time we stayed in a Château and it was just perfect. The château is beautifully located and very well maintained. We had a great time and looking forward to staying in the new Château de Montsymond next year. Thanks to all of you.

Cher Christophe and collaborateur,
Oui, nous commençons à nous habituer à venir aux kasteliades où l'accueil est toujours convivial et l'environnement exactement adapté aux besoins de notre petite tribu. Le soleil était au rendez-vous ce qui nous a permis aussi de visiter la région qui est pleine de bonnes surprises, culturelles, gastronomiques, sociales. Merci donc à tous les acteurs de ces projets qui ont rendu notre semaine agréable et vivifiante.

Famille Centanni. Paris.




Nous ne pouvons que vous féliciter pour la qualité de votre superbe demeure. Un véritable havre de paix, de tranquilité et de confort qui vous englouti tout simplement dans l'alégresse la plus totale. A bientôt!

Christophe, Arbee, Maximilien, Dominik, Philip, Brigitte, Margot.




Thank you Christophe! Your Château was fantastic! Perfect for our group of wine loving friends!

Such a beautiful setting for a week in the heart of Burgundy. lovely house, gorgeous scenery and great hospitality. It is hard to leave.

Grace and Lee. Saskatoon




Cher Christophe. C'était de nouveau une grande fête de séjourner avec toute la famille (17 personnes dont 8 enfants) dans l'une de vos magnifiques demeures. La dernière fois au château de Lans, et cette fois ci à Mercurey. Vu le temps magnifique nous avons passé beaucoup de temps au bord de la piscine et tous les soirs nous y avons dîné. Mais nous avons pu profiter également de toutes les autres possibilités: la salle de gym, le sauna, le hammam, le ping-pong, le jeu de boules... Nous en garderons tous un merveilleux souvenir et qui sait reviendrons nous la prochaine fois au château de Montsymond. Au nom de toute la famille, un grand merci!

Bertine Hoekstra-keyzer. Delden. Pays-Bas




We have had a wonderful holiday! Beautiful chateau, scenery, fantastic wine and food! The children have loved the pool and playing "hide and seek" in this amazing house. Merci!

The Pink family. Oxford. England.




Thirteen long term friends and a fabulous week at the Château!
