Château de l'Epervière Campsite

Château de l'Epervière Campsite

This lovely spacious family run campsite, Domaine de l’Epervière at Gigny-sur-Saône, is situated in the heart of the Burgundy countryside, between Beaune and Mâcon. The region is famous for its vineyards and wine production. The campsite is set in the grounds of a partly restored 16th century chateau, and is an attractively laid out parc with plenty of open space for children to play in and mature woodlands to explore.

The parc has excellent facilities and is ideal as a stopover en-route south as it is located just 16km from the A6 Autoroute du Soleil. However, the parc also offers lots to those who wish to stay for longer. Its excellent facilities include a delightful restaurant in the château and a super pool complex with both indoor and outdoor pools, jacuzzi and sauna. There is also a large lake, with a river just a brief stroll away and the famous vineyards of Burgundy within an easy drive. Wine growers from the region come to the chateau to run wine tasting sessions to introduce you to the wonderful wines of the Burgundy region. And if you are visiting later in the summer, the annual Wine Festival is held in the region between 29th August and 4th September in Dijon and Beaune.
