A stylish 17th-century chateau near Burgundy's historic capital of Dijon, with breakfast, plus optional dinner or wine tasting

For gourmands and wine-lovers who fancy the idea of glamming it up in a 17th-century Burgundy chateau set in a 66-acre park, the fully renovated 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 heated outdoor pool, private fishing lake and beautiful gardens, the interiors are striking. Individually designed guest rooms - set either in the chateau or newer pavilion - assure simple but tasteful decor. 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 - the perfect settings for a meal after a game of tennis, table tennis or petanque. There’s also an all-day bar that’s perfect for sinking a few bottles of ‘Burgundies’ – most famously Pinot Noir or Chardonnay.

Good to know

Please note that a city tax of €1.25 per person, per night is payable directly at the hotel upon check-out.
