Overview

Château de Saulon is a 17th-century country house in Burgundy, an area in the east of France that is known for its fortified villages, UNESCO World Heritage-recognised vineyards and some of "France's most gorgeous countryside" (Lonely Planet). Château de Pommard, where you can visit the vineyard, cellars and taste three different wines, is 30 minutes' drive away.

The hotel is on the outskirts of Saulon-la-Rue, a small settlement around 20 minutes' drive from Dijon, the former capital of the Dukes of Burgundy. Here you can take a ride on a tram or visit the Musée des Beaux-Arts -- "one of France's most outstanding museums", according to Lonely Planet -- and the Musée Magnin, which showcases the Magnin family's private collection of art. Keep an eye out for the owl and the cat sculptures on the rooftop of the 15th-century Maison Millière.

The hotel is half an hour's drive from Beaune, a historic walled city that dates back to the Roman period. Attractions include the food markets, held on Wednesday and Saturday, and the Hôtel-Dieu des Hospices de Beaune, a flamboyant Gothic building with turrets and a multi-coloured tiled roof. The Parc Régional du Morvan, which offers "1,000 square miles of unspoiled wildness" (The Daily Telegraph), is an hour's drive away.

The restaurant serves a modern take on Burgundian cuisine in its historic vaulted dining room. On-site activities include tennis, ping-pong and fishing, and there are 27 acres of grounds to explore. The outdoor swimming pool is open from Easter-October.

Rooms were refurbished in 2015. Comfort Double Rooms have traditional or contemporary décor and are in the château or the adjoining pavilion. Superior Rooms are in the château and have the most modern furnishing. Wi-Fi is free.
