A 17th-century château near the historic Burgundy capital of Dijon, with a wine tour or a massage
For gourmands and wine-lovers who fancy the idea of glamming it up in a 17th-century Burgundy château set in a 66-acre park, Château de Saulon is a cool pick. Most fabulous, though, is the location. You’ll be just over seven miles from Dijon - one of France’s most appealing cities famed for its medieval and Renaissance buildings. And, of course, mustard.
While the exterior wows with a gorgeous outdoor pool, private fishing lake and beautiful gardens, the interiors are striking. Individually designed guest rooms - set either in the château or newer pavilion - assure simple but tasteful décor. It’s all rather splendid on the food front too. With a menu that hinges on classic Burgundy cuisine, the flagship restaurant offers two dining spaces: indoors under the ancient beams or outdoors on the garden-facing terrace.
There’s also an all-day bar that’s perfect for sinking a few bottles of ‘Burgundies’ - most famously Pinot Noir or Chardonnay. You'll also visit Château de Pommard's wine cellar, one of Burgundy’s most prestigious estates that’s most celebrated for its Grand Vin du Château Pommard.
