Campsite Summary

Campsite Description

Set within one of the world's most renowned wine producing regions, this charming campsite is ideal for a relaxing break in rural Burgundy. Laid out in the magnificent wooded parkland of a 16th Century château, this is a spacious campsite with a peaceful atmosphere. It is ideally placed for an overnight stop, being only a few miles from the A6 motorway, but it definitely merits a longer stay as well. The generous pitches are grassy, separated by neat hedges and gently shaded by tall willow trees. The recently revamped aqua complex comprises a new paddling pool for children with small slides and water features, a heated indoor pool and an outdoor pool located next to the château which has a lovely sunbathing terrace with straw parasols and reclining loungers. There is also a fishing pond on site which is the perfect spot to while away many an afternoon catching carp, pike, roach, tench and catfish. Within the château, there is a delightful gourmet restaurant, and the bustling bar terrace is the setting for live music during high season. Regular wine tasting classes are held in the campsite's vaulted château cellars, and the famous Burgundy vineyards are just a short drive away. A pleasant walk or bike ride leads to the River Saône, or a little further afield is the bustling town of Mâcon, with its impressive architecture.
