Treat yourself to an excursion to one of the most beautiful cities Burgundy: Chalon-sur-Saône, just 15 minutes from the hotel. Listed as a City of Art and History, Chalon-sur-Saône is home to an exceptional heritage which bears witness to an eventful past. Walking through the historic centre, admire Saint-Vincent cathedral overlooking a square which has preserved its medieval splendour with stunning half-timbered houses. The cathedral was built over an extended period, between 1080 and 1520, and seamlessly integrates Romanesque and Gothic architecture. Take a moment to admire in the imposing, Baroque Saint-Pierre church with its seven bells, built by Benedictine monks.
Between these two religious monuments, discover the Perry and "four seasons" houses, both beautiful examples of 17th century homes with their stunning, sculpted facades. Also take a moment to admire the old Chambion house which mixes medieval elements with Oriental fantasies, and the magnificent residences: Noirot, Chiquet, Sassenay, Virey… Finally, make the most of your weekend in Burgundy to visit the Denon Museum of Fine Art and Archaeology, and Niépce Museum which pays tribute to the man credited with inventing photography. After this delightful stop, continue on your way along the Grands Vins tourist route, which passes right by Chalon-sur-Saône.
