Why Christophe Gay chose Lans
The Château de Lans is a jewel where it is pleasant to live in a setting where modernity doesn’t prevail over authenticity. The geographical location is unique and mixes quietness of the countryside with proximity of the town.
What makes this Castle unique
Our clients appreciate the luxury renovation we made and all these little details that make the difference: (quality Sofitel king size bed, professional sauna and hammam, many leisure activities on site and salt water pool heated to 28° from 1st April to 31th October). Professional approach and service without failure. Service approach for wine and gastronomy lovers.

We were looking for a property to rent for our extended family and we were thrilled to find Château Lans, it was perfect! It was lovely to be welcomed and shown around by Christophe, the Château has been beautifully restored, and the service throughout the week was great. The bikes were well used, and it was well worth hiring an extra small bike for the 6 year old, we loved the bike ride and meal in the frogs leg restaurant recommended by Christophe . In the morning the children loved cycling to get the baguettes, it’s worth putting an order in for the following day for croissants and baguettes as they do sell out if you aren’t up early. Merci
Dear Piers, Thank you for your kind review. It will be a pleasure to welcoming you in Burgundy again! Kindest regards. Christophe

The Château is lovely and met all expectations - the area is beautiful and easy to explore .
We all agreed we’d go back without too much persuasion !!!

Warmest regards. Christophe
The Chateau is simply stunning and in a lovely location on the edge of the village. Christophe and his team are magnificent hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them to make our stay amazing! Strongly recommend the wine tasting and have the chef cooking for us on the last night was also very special. Another recommendation is the lovely "Le Saint Christophe" Restaurant in nearby Christophe en Bresse - lovely food and great hospitality! We will be back!
Incredible Country home
Our family of 12 spent an entire week in this spectacular country home. The accommodations were ideal, the attention to details for our comfort were superb.
This home feels just that- warm and welcoming and thoughtfully prepared for a perfect vacation.
We would highly recommend it.
Dear Earl, many thanks for your kind comments. It was a great pleasure to welcoming you and your friendly group in my property. Cheers. Christophe
Fantastic Stay in a Wonderful Location
We were a party of 12 adults and had an amazing time here!
The location is excellent, just outside Chalon sur Saone and close to a large supermarket so great for stocking up on supplies. The chateau is set well back from the road in its own grounds and although we were down a small country lane, there was no traffic noise at all.
Although the weather could have been a little kinder, we were determined to make use of the pool and were grateful that it was heated!
Inside, the kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of plates, glasses etc for a larger party.
Following Christophe's recommendation, we went to the market in Chalon on the Sunday - try the rotisserie chicken! Parking was easy and it was a fantastic market with plenty of fresh produce available. We also went for a lunch boat trip on the Thursday of our stay - organised through the local Tourist Office!
The whole party had a great time and I would not hesitate to recommend this property - we even organised our own boules tournament!
Thank you Christopher and we look forward to seeing you at some point in the future!
Thank you very much for your kind message.
Looking forward to welcoming you in Burgundy again!
"Chateau de Lans is an id...
"Chateau de Lans is an idyllic holiday retreat to chill out in the Burgundy countryside. Spacious, very comfortable accommodation set in large grounds with a heated pool. The owner was the perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. During our stay he also showed us around Chateau Mercurey, which at the time was nearing completion. It looks truly superb!"
Between the city and the countryside, the Château de Lans is ideally located to explore Burgundy, its wine cellars and its treasures.
Tourism in the surrounding of the Château de Lans:
The historical centre of Chalon-sur-Saône is 5 minutes and Beaune is only 20 minutes.
The Photography Museum - Chalon-sur-Saône (5km)
It is in Chalon-sur-Saône that Nicéphore Niepce, the inventor of photography, was born. Its home town dedicated a museum to him and its art. In a very beautiful private mansion on the banks of the Saône are gathered some cameras from all periods. In the different rooms, the visitor will initiate himself to different techniques used to reproduce the reality on paper and will discover very beautiful temporary photos exhibitions.
Hospices de Beaune – Beaune (37 km)
Famous for their auction of wines each year in November, the Hospices de Beaune are, with their marvellous varnished coloured tiled roof, one of the most emblematic sites to visit in Burgundy. Treasure of the Burgundy-Flemish art, the Hospices de Beaune also house some very beautiful paintings including “The last Jugement” by Roger van der Weyden, the leader of religious painting in the 15th century.
Château de Couches – Couches (32 km)
Clinging to its rock, the Château de Couches soars up amidst the green and rolling landscape of the vineyards of the Côte Chalonnaise. Access is by a drawbridge that stands as witness to the defensive role that the château had in by-gone days. Today it is possible to visit the chapel, the prison and the square dungeon dating back from the 12th century.
Château de Cormatin - Cormatin (42 km)
Built in the 17th century on the remains of a 13th castle, the Château de Cormatin is without a doubt one of the most elegant châteaux in Burgundy. Its truly beautiful gardens which include a maze, were highly appreciated notably by François Mitterrand and Alphonse de Lamartine. In summer the château holds a festival in the theatre called “Rendez-vous de Cormatin”.
The Hérisson Falls - Jura (90 km)
Two streams join to make a series of waterfalls, each one more beautiful than the last. 31 falls, some over 60 metre high, go to make up the Hérisson Waterfalls. A way marked footpath of 3.7 km allows you to see the beauty of this exceptional nature site.
Cluny Abbey – Cluny (56 km)
On the eve of second millennium Burgundy was a region of high spiritual importance due to Cluny Abbey. This Benedictine Abbey built in the 10th century was the centre of the religious word and its church was no less than the largest in the Christian world. Destroyed during the Revolution, the abbey lives today only through its impressive remains and an archeological museum that allows visitors to imagine what it was like in its glorious past.
Chalon dans la Rue – Chalon-sur-Saône (5 km)
Each year, for 4 days, and during the third week-end of July (from Thursday night to Sunday night), the streets of Chalon-sur-Saône are transformed into the stage of a multitude of live performances (jugglers, plays, concerts, acrobats, circus acts, etc.) during the biggest festival of street theatre in France.
Fun Park des Combes – Le Creusot (45 km)
Laid around a disused railway line, the Parc des Combers offers visitors a whole range of activities in a natural setting covering 170 acres. According to your taste and whim, whether you prefer a spine chilling ride on the big dipper or if you prefer the relaxing roll of an old stream engine, this park has something for everyone: summer toboggan, aerial runway, stream train, fairground rides, etc.
Green Way – Chalon-sur-Saône (4 km)
From Chalon-sur-Saône to Charnay-lès-Mâcon, tens of km of old railway track have been converted into a cycle track. Surrounded by rolling landscapes, alternating between vineyards and forest, this flat (or almost) Green Way, lends itself perfectly to cycling or rollerblading or simply walking. The track goes through several charming villages and you can also admire sites: Cluny, Cormatin, etc.
Acrogivry – Givry (15 km)
At Givry, some 15 acres of oak trees are reserved for adventure in the tree tops. More than 18 circuits and 150 aerial games have been created for visitor from young children to really tough adventurers. Those who like thrill won’t be disappointed by the giant 250 m aerial runway.
