Location

Chalon-sur-Saône


The property is situated in open countryside 25 minutes from Chalon-sur-Saône in Southern Burgundy. All amenities including supermarkets, restaurants and café bars in Chalon and nearby surrounding villages.

Nearby markets in Louhans (35 minutes), Chalons and Beaune.

Museum of Photography - Chalon-sur-Saône (25 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 millennium 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 (25 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.

Green Way - Chalon-sur-Saône.
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.

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.

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

Fantastic, great family holiday at Villa Le Doubs. Struggling to load the car with all the wine we bought.

Calderwood & Cohen families from London.




Celebrating the 80th birthday of Robert, we organized a family reunion of 4 generations. From the age of 9 to 80 we spent a sunny and lovely summer week at Villa Le Doubs. We enjoyed all the nice facilities around the villa, the well equipped and lovely decorated rooms and the excellent Burgundian wines and food.
Thanks for being a perfect host, hope to see you again.

Family Gross, Manheim, Germany.

Merci de nous avoir offert cette belle maison très confortable et bien équipée. A l'occasion de l'anniversaire de notre mère, la famille s'est déplacée de Zurich à Saunières pour passer un bon moment ensemble. Nous avons profité du beau temps pour découvrir Beaune, Cluny, le château de Cormatin, Louhans...etc. Le soir vous avons bien dîner en famille. A bientôt et merci beaucoup! 

Nicklaus Santschj. Zurich.




Thank you so much for a lovely long week-end at Villa Le Doubs. We really enjoyed the wine tasting at your home cellar. We hope to be back soon!

Mark Fryling and Sharma Family.




We have had an amazing week staying at your beautifully renovated house. The pool was the perfect temperature, the house had the perfect ambience for great dinners and wine drinking. Everyone thought your wine cellar was a highlight of the trip... What a privilege! Good luck with all your ventures, certainly we will be back for another adventure.

Catherine & Al Kiaara.




Thank you for an amazing stay. The Villa is beautiful, so well cared for and perfectly equipped. We look forward to coming back. Thank you as well for the wonderful wine tastings at your beautiful home and the tour of your amazing cellar...Quite memorable! until next year!

The Azar family (Dimitri, Nathalie & Kids). Chicago.




We had a wonderful hot summer week in Villa Le Doubs. We enjoyed the pool. The pool and parasol were care necessities as we touched 40°C this week. Every evening at 9 we lighted the BBQ and had a lovely dinner outside. All outside dinners were accompanied by good wines but these could not match with the extraordinary wines of your cellar Christophe!
Tip for golfers: It's a 20 minutes drive to Chalon sur Saône's Golf Course. They planted several exotic trees, worthwile!! Hope to come back in one of your other properties. Thanks for the lovely stay!

Riana le Fever from Holland and friends (Gab, Robert, Pieter, Fons, Jacob, Hans, Robyne, Fleur, Govert) 




We had a perfect time at Villa Saunières. It will be a wonderful memory for all of us.

Robins Family. England.




Thank you for a wonderful week. Villa Le Doubs is amazing and we all have enjoyed a very relaxing week here. A special note of thanks to your lovely neighbour who allowed our daughters Hannah and Jess to have a ride on his horses, that made their holiday! Thanks again
