Interior & Grounds:
A 200m drive through the apple orchard takes you to the château entrance and the spacious courtyard with space for 8 cars. Surrounded by hedges, greenery and century old trees, the chateau offers complete privacy to its guests.
The two round towers add to the charm of the place and will fascinate lovers of historic buildings. In the living room, the dining room and the bedrooms we have kept the period features including the original wooden parquet floors, the decorated ceilings, the fireplaces (logs provided), doors and windows. The bedrooms have been sound-proofed and a number of them also have air-conditioning. The decor and furnishings have been selected with utmost care and the result is a mix of traditional and contemporary styles.
The Château has 7 bedrooms, 4 doubles & 3 twins (the twins can all be converted to doubles). Two cots are also available. The 7 bedrooms each have their own en-suite bathroom. Stylish and fitted with your comfort in mind, each bathroom has a WC, a washbasin, and either a shower or bath. Each bathroom also has a heated towel rail.

Guestbook comments from the manager
What a great week we had at chateau de Lans! The chateau has been renovated and decorated by Sylvia, Christophe and their team in such a great and tasteful way and is so complete (even more complete now, since we added an oyster knife) and luxurious, that it exceeded our best expectations. During the week, we travelled along some of the wine routes towards Givry, Rully, Mercurey and Nolay, we visited the poultry market at Louhans, and visited the festival Chalon dans la Rue. We tasted great Burgundy cuisine and wines in various great restaurants near Chalon and Beaune. Most of all, however, we enjoyed the chateau itself, its gardens and the heated swimming pool (especially the kids). The combination of an authentic French chateau, complete privacy, the luxury that the chateau offers and the fantastic region worked so well for us that we will certainly rent one of the chateaux next year!
