Chateau Vela is a charming 19th century chateau located in the heart of southern Burgundy, just a few minutes from Châlon-sur-Saône. The property is situated in a beautiful wooded parkland, boasting numerous ancient trees, a delightful orchard and a heated pool (open April 1 - October 31). The chateau offers seven luxury bedrooms (each with an ensuite bathroom), a gym, a cozy lounge with fireplace, a dining room, and fully-equipped kitchen. The living areas all open out onto the terrace and pool area, providing a convenient gathering space for all to enjoy.

A 200 meter-long road guides guests to the chateau entrance. The road meanders through an apple orchard and opens onto a spacious courtyard with space to park up to eight cars. Surrounded by a centuries-old hedge of greenery and trees, the property offers much privacy. Chateau Vela is genuine yet comfortable. The two round towers add to its charm and will fascinate lovers of historic buildings. In the lounge, the dining room and the bedrooms, the owners have retained the period features, including the original wooden parquet floors, the decorated ceilings ‘à la française’, the fireplaces and doors and windows. The result of the careful and meticulous renovation includes the addition of modern amenities (such as air conditioning and Internet), and decor and furnishings with a pleasing mix of traditional and contemporary styles.

A Sauna, steam-room and Sports room have been added as of Christmas 2013.

It is now about two weeks from our visit, but never too late to thank you for the wonderful time, we spent in France and in your chateau. Our group (now 10 persons) is a group of friends, cousins and other relatives. Our group has been doing similar trips for 12 years (once or twice per year). So far we have been lucky in our selections of chateau or manor house. And - yes - our good luck continued and our expectations were exceeded during our stay. I am not complaining the relatively modest weather. Maybe it was a good thing, so that we had more time to travel around the small villlages, cities, wine yards etc. So thank you again and good luck to your activitiies and hobbies (= wine)! Best regards from all of us


Merci, this is a wonderful "home base" to explore and enjoy the Burgundy region.Our week was tres bien!


Chalon sur Saône now holds a special place in our hearts, and our stay here at your lovely château has greatly contributed to that. Thank you so much !


This has been a terrific week...plenty of good food, good wine, beautiful scenery. The route des grands crus is a fabulous way to spend a day. Cheers !


We had a wonderful holiday celebrating our retirement with all our family (3 sons, 3 daughters-in-law, and grand children). The Château has exceeded all our expectations, the pool and trampoline has been such a success with the children. We will take home many fond memories of this special holiday.


Thank you for a peaceful, pastoral and pampered respite, removed from our mundane lives. We will all remember, treasure and revere this week apart, "as time goes bye.


Take a 60th birthday "girl", her husband, two cousins and spouses, and few friends of antipodean and British origin... And good weather, and a kitchen able to cope with lots of good cooks and "elves"! Result : A week to remember for all of us ! Thank you !


13 of us, all accomodated in lovely bedrooms. Wonderful social house, great furnishings. BBQ in constant use due to prearranged excellent weather. Loved the pool and plenty of sunbeds. All enjoyed Chalon and surrounding area. Great meal cooked on our first night by Chef Patrick. We have been on holiday as a group of 13 friends for over 10 years and this house has been the best.

On behalf of our Canadian travel group, I'd like to extend great appreciation for our stay at your beautiful Chateau. The property is magnificent and your attention to detail is impressive. We won't hesitate to recommend you to our friends and colleagues. We had a wonderful time and will certainly be back to Burgundy.


I wanted to drop you a quick email to feedback our stay at the Chateau. Thank you for allowing us to rent your fantastic and beautiful Chateau, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and had an absolutely amazing time in Burgundy. The property is wonderful, it couldn’t have been more perfect. The use of the pool in late October was unexpected and a real treat! Thank you to you and your team.
