Photos and Description of this 8 bedroom holiday castle in Chalon sur Saone area - Château de Lans

Tastefully renovated castle with high standard services

This 19th century château (and its outbuilding) covering 460 m² has an exceptional location, in the heart of the southern Burgundy, between Beaune and Mâcon, a few minutes from Chalon-sur-Saône.

It is situated in a beautiful 5-acre wooded parkland with orchard, hundred-year-old trees and large 6x12 m salt water pool heated from 1st of April to 31rst of October.

The château houses 7 luxury bedrooms and 7 ensuite bathrooms as well as a bedroom for a baby/child, a cosy living room with fireplace, a dining room and a kitchen. All living spaces directly open onto the terrace of the pool which is convivial.

The outbuilding of the château houses a stunning fitness centre with sauna, hammam and fitness and weights room.

Happiness is in the park

The 200 m access road to the château goes through an apple orchard and opens onto a large courtyard with space to park 8 vehicles comfortably. Surrounded by an edge or greenery and trees, some over a century old, the château is very private.

Authenticity and comfort

The two round towers of the château gives it a charm that will delight the old stone lovers.

In the living room, the dining room and the bedrooms we kept the period features. Wooden parquet floors, the ceilings “à la Française”, the fireplaces, the doors and the period windows.

Almost one year of works have been necessary to offer you the comfort we can expect today. The bedrooms have been sound-proofed and some bedrooms that are South-exposed or in the attic, are air-conditioned. The decoration and the furniture have been chosen with utmost care, a really excellent mix of traditional and modern styles.

The bedrooms:

There are 4 bedrooms with 160x200 cm double bed and 3 bedrooms with 80x200 cm twin beds. Twin beds can be joined to make a 160x200 cm bed upon simple request.

2 bedrooms are on the first floor and 4 are on the second floor.

All the bedrooms on the second floor are air-conditioned as well as the VIP bedroom on the first floor.

The towels are provided upon arrival.

Peaceful nights:

The château is not bothered by traffic or other noise. In addition, all the bedroom walls are sound-proofed to ensure your complete privacy.

The living room:

The living room boasts of a 19th century fireplace. An electric fireplace system will allow you to fully enjoy convivial moments by the fireside without the trouble to have to carry wood!

You will appreciate the relaxing decoration and comfort of the living room that is very bright with its large French window opening onto the parkland and the poo. The ceiling “à la Française” and the ancient oak parquet floor add a touch of authenticity worthy of your chatelaine stay. A large HD flat screen television with satellite channels as well as a PlayStation 3 and its DVD Blu-ray home cinema will ensure pleasant entertaining evenings.

The dining room:

The table is ready to seat up to 14 guests. Just like in the living room, the large French doors opening onto the parkland and the pool add a lot of light and highlight the ceiling “à la Française” and the oak parquet floor dating back from the building of the château.

A wide range of crockery and cutlery, carefully selected by Sylvia, is at your disposal in the sideboard of the living room.

Why Christophe Gay chose Chalon sur Saone area

The Château de Lans is a jewel where it is pleasant to live in a setting where modernity doesn’t prevail over authenticity. The geographical location is unique and mixes quietness of the countryside with proximity of the town.

What makes this castle unique

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). Professional approach and service without failure. Service approach for wine and gastronomy lovers.

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.
