SEE & DO
While staying at Le Chêne d’Or, you have a plethora of things to see and do. On and around our "domaine" you can unwind in one of the many seating areas, hammocks or the lounger in the garden. There are plenty of activities to take advantage of during your stay including table tennis, badminton and volleyball. We also have a new pétanque court with an adjoining "boules bar” for snacks and drinks while playing jeu de boules. Or you can relax in and around the newly constructed swimmingpool.
We are centrally located close to the village of Marcheseuil in the Bourgogne/Côte D’Or and only 30 km from the Route de Soleil (A6) providing you easy access to the surrounding area.
Arnay le Duc
The town of Arnay le Duc is just 13 km away and near the Fouché Lake. Historic sites include the Motte Forte tower, the last vestige of a 12th-century castle. Walk along cobbled streets lined with old houses and Renaissance dwellings like the castle of the Princes of Condé. The pleasant main square includes a number of supermarkets, restaurants and shops. You can also swim in the lake during the summer months.
There are plenty of high quality options for golf enthusiasts in the area. Several beautiful courses are within 20 km of us and combine great scenery with several monuments such as Château de Chailly, named in the top 10 golf courses in the Northeast region of France.
We are located on the edge of the Morvan Regional Natural Park. A trip to this beautiful nature reserve offers a number of wonderful scenic mountainous areas, rivers and large lakes to explore. We recommend the Lac des Settons as an absolute must see. There is hiking, cycling, mountain biking or horseback riding in the area and paddle boards or kayaks can be rented at the lakes.
For wine enthusiasts, within a 30 minute drive you are among the grapes. A tour (on foot, by bike or by car) through these vineyards and along the many wineries/domaines in Burgundy is a real must for wine lovers. Especially "The Route de Grand Crus", a route through many of the fanatastic appellations of the vineyards of the Côte de Nuits, the Côte de Beaune and the back hills. Other wines made in various parts of Burgundy include Chablis in and around Mâcon. A trip to regions like Saint-Vérand and winemaker Domaine Romuald Petit is highly recommended.
Several beautiful towns are nearby including Saulieu, Autun, Beaune and of course Dijon, the capital of the Côte d’Or, known for its mustard. All are certainly worth a visit. This premier wine-growing region of France produces what are arguably some of the world's finest wines. Some of the attractions in the region included the Gothic church of Saint-Seine-l’Abbaye, the Romanesque abbey at Saulieu, as well the Château de Bussy Rabutin at Bussy-le-Grand.
