Why stay here ...

This high-quality site sits in the heart of the Burgundy wine country, between Beaune and Mâcon and in the grounds of a 16th century château. With its own fishing lake and wooded areas, it’s home to a variety of wildlife, giving the whole site a relaxed, natural ambiance.

Gert-Jan and his team work hard to make guests feel at home and are enthusiastic about the region. Adults can enjoy a wine tasting, twice a week, in the château’s cellars between mid July to middle of August.

Around and about there are lots of vineyards, and visits can be arranged to the local caves. The town of Tournus is close by and has a long history. It’s worth exploring the Romanesque abbey and browsing the arts and crafts shops in the squares around it. Those feeling more adventurous can reach Besançon or Dijon in a little over an hour.

Lovely, welcoming site

Lovely welcoming site. We were not happy with the pitch allocated and they did everything they could to make it right. We stayed on a pitch by the play field and it was perfect for the kids to play on and was a nice communal feel to it. The pools are nice but a bit on the small side for the size of the campsite. Kids club were lovey, did some nice activities and made sure everyone knew what they were doing and that they understand. I think there is capability to extend their evening entertainment for the families such as singers, quiz or something like that. Nice countryside around the campsite and peaceful enough to go for a bike ride. WiFi was slow.

Worth 6 stars

We have used L'Eperviere normally for short stays and always enjoyed the facilities on offer. This year we used it for a longer stay and was not disappointed. The area surrounding the Chateau is ideal for waking and biking. Sennecy le Grand is a lovely place with an interesting museum. The train is easily accessible and we used this to visit Beaune. The site itself is, we believe, the best of the Les Castels sites. The pitches and the surrounding areas are well maintained and the cleanliness of the toilets and showers second to none. We had an amazing meal in the restaurant Thank you to all the friendly, smiling staff for making this a first class site..

Great Stopover

We stayed for one night on the way back from the South and would have liked to stay a little longer. The site is beautifully laid out and we were given a large pitch which enabled us to stay hooked up for an early departure. The sanitary facilities were excellent and the restaurant very good and reasonably priced. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice. We cycled a short way along the river which was very pleasant although the track was quite rough and we didn't see anyone. The area is very quiet and having visited some truly wonderful scenery during our month in France we found this area disappointing although as you get closer to Beaune it improves. A lovely site we would like to visit again.

Convenient for one-night stop or longer stays

Stayed two nights enroute to Switzerland. 10-15 min drive from autoroute with good access. Level pitches and very open feel even when busy. Friendly staff. Excellent restaurant. Pleasant cycling/walking by the River Saone.
