Our clients appreciate the luxury renovation we made and all these little details that make the difference: (quality Sofitel king size bed, professional sauna and hammam, many leisure activities on site and salt water pool heated to 28° from 1st April to 31th October).

Fantastic Stay in a Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 12 adults and had an amazing time here!

The location is excellent, just outside Chalon sur Saone and close to a large supermarket so great for stocking up on supplies. The chateau is set well back from the road in its own grounds and although we were down a small country lane, there was no traffic noise at all.

Although the weather could have been a little kinder, we were determined to make use of the pool and were grateful that it was heated!

Inside, the kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of plates, glasses etc for a larger party.

Following Christophe's recommendation, we went to the market in Chalon on the Sunday - try the rotisserie chicken! Parking was easy and it was a fantastic market with plenty of fresh produce available. We also went for a lunch boat trip on the Thursday of our stay - organised through the local Tourist Office!

The whole party had a great time and I would not hesitate to recommend this property - we even organised our own boules tournament!

Thank you Christopher and we look forward to seeing you at some point in the future!

"Chateau de Lans is an idyllic holiday retreat to chill out in the Burgundy countryside. Spacious, very comfortable accommodation set in large grounds with a heated pool. The owner was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. During our stay he also showed us around Chateau Mercurey, which at the time was nearing completion. It looks truly superb!"

A superb property in an excellent location!

The chateau is tastefully furnished with great attention to detail, and every facility provided. A beautiful country location, but close to all amenities. Christophe was very welcoming and helpful. A wonderful place for a gathering of family or friends. None of us wanted to leave!

We could not be more pleased

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a great week at Chateau de Lans and we could not have expected to have a better host than Christophe. Everything thing about the Chateau met or exceeded our expectations. The chateau is clean, comfortable and very well appointed, nothing is lacking for an extended stay. The grounds are beautiful, the beds are comfortable, and the kitchen is very well equipped. Christophe's suggestions regarding restaurants and shops was very helpful and the wine tasting at his home was a highlight of our visit.

Parfait !

  • 5 of 5

Nous revenons pour la deuxième fois en Bourgogne, après avoir passé un séjour déjà formidable à l'autre propriété de Sylvia & Christophe GAY, la Villa Saunières.

C'est une fois de plus le sans faute. Les enfants ont grandement profité de tous les loisirs (baby foot, piscine chauffée, trampoline, ping pong...). Bravo pour la chambre bébé et enfant, avec le lit toboggan, c'est une riche idée.

Le nouvel espace de remise en forme avec sauna et hammam a été bien utilisé chaque matin après le petit déjeuner.

Nous avons testé les deux chefs de cuisine, Chef Patrick et Chef Thomas, tous les deux sont des perles !

Bref, il ne nous reste plus qu'à revenir une 3ème fois!

Amitiés de Belgique.

La famille Van Straat.

Between the city and the countryside, the Château de Lans is ideally located to explore Burgundy, its wine cellars and its treasures.

Tourism in the surrounding of the Château de Lans:

The historical centre of Chalon-sur-Saône is 5 minutes and Beaune is only 20 minutes.

The Photography Museum - Chalon-sur-Saône (5km)

It is in Chalon-sur-Saône that Nicéphore Niepce, the inventor of photography, was born. Its home town dedicated a museum to him and its art. In a very beautiful private mansion on the banks of the Saône are gathered some cameras from all periods. In the different rooms, the visitor will initiate himself to different techniques used to reproduce the reality on paper and will discover very beautiful temporary photos exhibitions.

Hospices de Beaune – Beaune (37 km)

Famous for their auction of wines each year in November, the Hospices de Beaune are, with their marvellous varnished coloured tiled roof, one of the most emblematic sites to visit in Burgundy. Treasure of the Burgundy-Flemish art, the Hospices de Beaune also house some very beautiful paintings including “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 dating back from the 12th century.

Château de Cormatin - Cormatin (42 km)

Built in the 17th century on the remains of a 13th 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 Mitterrand and Alphonse de Lamartine. In summer the château holds a festival in the 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 metre high, go to make up the Hérisson Waterfalls. A way marked footpath of 3.7 km allows you to see the beauty of this exceptional nature site.

Cluny Abbey – Cluny (56 km)

On the eve of 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 word and its 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, for 4 days, and during the third week-end of July (from Thursday night to Sunday night), 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 around a disused railway line, the Parc des Combers offers visitors a whole range of activities in a natural setting covering 170 acres. According to your taste and whim, whether you prefer a spine chilling ride on the big dipper or if you prefer the relaxing roll of an old stream engine, this park has something for everyone: summer toboggan, aerial runway, stream train, fairground rides, etc.

Green Way – Chalon-sur-Saône (4 km)

From Chalon-sur-Saône to Charnay-lès-Mâcon, tens of km 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 charming villages and you can also admire sites: Cluny, Cormatin, etc.

Acrogivry – Givry (15 km)

At Givry, some 15 acres of oak trees are reserved for adventure in the tree tops. More than 18 circuits and 150 aerial games have been created for visitor from young children to really tough adventurers. Those who like thrill won’t be disappointed by the giant 250 m aerial runway.
