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.
How to Get There
Overnight stop on the way home after 3 hard days of mountain biking in the French Alps. Superb hotel with friendly staff & a fantastic restaurant with an awesome wine list. Would not hesitate to recommend.
I did not stay at this hotel so know nothing about it. However, I had a confirmed booking through Booking.Com which the hotel directly cancelled on 2/6/2018 (the booking was for one night on 30/6/2018). They then sent and email on 24/6/2018 stating that the booking was now confirmed. Of course I had made alternative arrangements and I did not see the email as I was on holiday. However, the hotel then had the sheer audacity to charge me - totally unbelievable - apparently as I had not responded to their email I was, in their view, obligated to stay at their hotel - seems they feel they can cancel and reinstate bookings as they think fit. I have all the emails to prove this. I strongly advise anyone to steer clear of this hotel - it is obviously driven by greed!!
Very beautiful Chateau with a nice garden and pool. We’ve been here for the 2nd time, always worth a stay. Also the restaurant is a recommendation. Very professional service and an excellent menu.
Room size is absolut ok, also enough space for an extra bed. We will come back.
The location is beautiful and peaceful.
Newly refurbished rooms within an historical caste is a winning combination.
It’s a great place to stay with the added bonus of the pool and a superb restaurant next to the hotel.
Ein sehr schönes kleines Château.
Es stammt aus dem Jahr 1372. Es liegt 23 min hinter Dijon, und ist gut von der Autobahn erreichbar
Das Personal ist jung und sehr freundlich.
Die Zimmer sind klein und aber sehr modern und komplett renoviert.
Leider schenkt man dem Schwimmbad sehr wenig Beachtung,
was schade ist, denn es ist sehr schön. Zudem hat es eine sehr gute Wasserqualität.
Das Restaurant liegt außerhalb des Château, allerdings auf dem Schlossgelände. Es hat eine sehr gute Küche und ist zudem preiswert.
Tages Menü: ab 2 Gänge 20€
bis 4 Gänge 32€
Abend Menü: ab 3 Gänge 35€
bis 7 Gänge 75€
Auch hier ist das Personal jung und sehr freundlich.
Alles in allem, ist es hier sehr ruhig und man kann gut entspannen. Die Aussicht aus dem Fenster ist ein Traum.
Ich würde hier immer wieder, bei einer Fahrt nach Südfrankreich, übernachten.
