The Sainte Sabine is a 17th-century chateau built on the site of an ancient monastery. Set on the banks of the Burgundy Canal, the hotel is situated between Beaune, Burgundy’s wine capital, and Dijon, ʺone of France's most appealing citiesʺ, according to Lonely Planet. The small town of Pouilly-les-Auxois, home to a 15th-century dove cote, is a 10-minute drive away.

Surrounded by eight hectares of parkland -- where you might spot deer, mallard ducks and hares --the hotel overlooks the village of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois. Take a boat cruise along the canal or join the Véloroute cycle route which is one mile from the chateau. Both approximately 30 minutes away by car, the vineyards of Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune offer tasting sessions and tours.

The grand property has an outdoor pool and terrace, plus a helicopter pad for guests arriving in style. The restaurant has large bay windows with panoramic views of the village, the lake and the park in the surrounding valley. Its menu showcases local produce, including Burgundy truffle, lamb from a nearby farm and river-caught pike. There’s also a stylish bar and an elegant games room.

Sophisticated bedrooms are brightly decorated, with period furniture, free Wi-Fi, mini bars and flat-screen TVs. Some have exposed beams. There are two suites that are split over two levels and can sleep up to five people -- these have floor-to-ceiling windows with park views.
